  1. Funny thing about Palestine at #2. The truck reference. The dumbass is to stupid to notice that the truck has an Indiana plate, and that parking lot is nowhere in Palestine. He has probably never been to any of our proud towns.

  2. I think all southern illinios is considered red neck , area
    anyway. it always was, always will be .

    1. Excellent grammar and sentence structure. I’m from Marion in Southern Illinois and consider myself fairly well educated and successful. Especially when I’m wearing my cowboy boots, jeans ball cap. Does the make me a redneck? Yeah, probably. I’m OK with that.

  3. This list is pretty bad. The stats are likely wrong or skewed. There’s no way Chester’s graduation rate is 53% unless they are counting the population of the Prison which I’m sure they are since it’s counted as part of the city population. Of course Gretchen Wilson isn’t from Vandalia but both my parents are and it is very redneck but so is most of S Illinois. How about Baldwin or Sparta IL? Or Cairo, Metropolis??

  4. Funny. Most of this info isn’t even correct but guess that is what it takes to make fun of people. Your pics are satellite images. You form your “entertainment” right from your bedroom at mommy’s house. Southern Illinois is what you call redneck and most aren’t necessarily offended by your poking. Might want to be careful though. You never know when a pissed off redneck might sneak up behind you!

  5. Proud to be redneck at least I’m not a liberal hillary killer supporter. I’m gun owner and NRA supporter.and the clinton and Obama administration can kiss it….

  6. This site loves to use the bogus 5th statistic. Effingham and Ambon both rank 5th in gun stores then Jacksonville is 5th in fishing with Vandalia 5th in fishing gear (or did they say fishing here). There are definitely more redneck locations and in a different order then listed here everyone from SI knows. Look for number of pawn shops, title loan stores and taverns per person.

  7. You missed forgottonia illinois. It the Bermuda Triangle of Illinois. All I have to say is go visit and you will understand.

  8. This guy is an idiot. The greatest people in Illinois are from these areas. Go back to your suburban powdered asshole city you stupid ass.

  9. It appears that the whole state of Illinois is REDNECK in this writers mind? I am formerly from Illinois and I could take him to some places in Illinois that certainly are more REDNECK than the towns that he listed?
