Why is Red Necks & White trash acceptable vocabulary? Jay Leno does a skit weekly on Red Neck inventions. I admit I laugh, but I also know that the double standard in America would prevent him from doing the same segment about blacks. I can think of a few slang words to describe the minority community, that would sure to bring an infraction. If Jay Leno used those words he would be be off the air. When you think about it... those words are no different than using Red Necks and White Trash to describe poor uneducated white people.
