Hi. I'm doing some research on American subculture for a project and I'm interested in American rural subculture.

Is it true rednecks were known to walk around barefoot like hillbillies, and if so were rednecks affected by hookworm like hillbillies were?

Please help. Thank you.

Historically, rednecks did walk around barefoot and they were affected by ringworm according to this:

However this article doesn't talk about more modern era rednecks.

The redneck, hillbilly, democrats are known for having all kinds of physical ailments. Mostly do from inbreeding.
