I go to high school in a town in upstate New York. Five years ago everyone thought it was cool to be a wigger, now everyone around here dresses and acts like a complete redneck. Im talking one in every five kids wears dirty Timberland or Carolina work boots, jeans with grease stains, sleeveless plaid shirts, and camo hats with fish hooks attached to them. Now everyone chews tobacco in the school bathrooms, gets in fights on Facebook about whose truck is better, and posts stuff on facebook like “gotta get ma hands on sum moonshine tanite.”
All of that stuff is just annoying because I know that the majority of those kids grew up in wealthy suburban neighborhoods and wore Abercrombie of few years ago, they’re just doing it to fit in. What is more disturbing, however, is that they also have confederate flags on their belt buckles, hats and in the back of their trucks. Many of them have suddenly turned adamantly racist.
Have any other parts of the country experienced this? Or has it just plagued my high school?
