Tulsa Ranked in Top 10 Redneck Cities

4858620_s

You might be a redneck if … you live in Tulsa. “Whoa, hold on Bubba! Who you calling’ a redneck?”  Not me. I ’bout swallowed my tobaccie when I heard that. I’m not calling Tulsans rednecks. A lighthearted study by a real estate blog is.

Movoto.com is out with “The 10 Most Redneck Cities in America”, and Tulsa comes in at number five on the list. The website said it used the number of Walmarts, gun and ammo stores, country music stations, riding lawn mower repair shops and high school dropout rates per capita to create the rankings. (I’ll add my own to that criteria: redneck wakeboarding. See link below) Author Natalie Grigson put it this way:

“You see, rednecks are a surprisingly diverse folk — they love home cooking’, but they love fast food; they love their dogs, but they love their taxidermied animals just the same.”

If it’s any consolation to Tulsans, Oklahoma City is even more redneck. Here’s the top ten:12084680_s

  1. Atlanta, GA
  2. Kansas City, MO
  3. Oklahoma City, OK
  4. Nashville, TN
  5. Tulsa, OK
  6. Fort Worth, TX
  7. Arlington, TX
  8. Sacramento, CA
  9. Cleveland, OH
  10. Mesa, AZ

So what do you think of the rankings? Are you a proud redneck or do you think Oklahoma is far from a redneck state? Let me know in the comments below.
