Another poor Appalachian here and I'm pretty sure that redneck refers to the kerchiefs worn by laborers during the unionization of the appalachian coalfields to differentiate themselves from the imported hired thugs. Your acceptance of the dehumanisation of a culture to take it's wealth doesn't make it any less racist.

From Wikipedia:

Redneck is a disparaging[1] term that refers to a person who is stereotypically Caucasian and of lower social-economic status in the United States and Canada, particularly referring to those living in rural areas. Originally limited to the Southern United States,[2] and then to Appalachia,[3] the term has become widely used throughout North America.
