For some, rednecks and hillbillies are some abstract thing.
But it can be so easy to forget the humanity and call people names.
In fact, sometimes they can live across the street.
See, it is not a distant thing for everyone.
It is not a distant thing for me.
“Americans call them hillbillies, rednecks, or white trash. I call them neighbors, friends, and family.”
–J. D. Vance , Hillbilly Elegy
