Around here, hillbilly and redneck are mutually exclusive terms. If a hill was found in this area, a local holiday would be declared so we could all go see it.

Oh, I forgot, this is the US. Everyone is middle class (and all the children are above average). My mistake. Hill folk who live in trailers are just like Wall Street sociopaths. No rednecks here.
I agree pikeshot: I'm not a redneck; more a black and blue nail.

People that fit the term redneck can be found all over the US anywhere the community is primarily rural. It is not a southern exclusive.

Maybe a veneer of straight-forwardness. But generally speaking they're pretty conniving. I live in rural N.C. and encounter these "rednecks" daily. They're hardly kind, considerate or any of that.
