Interesting facts and opinions
“Hillbilly” is a slang word, often used as derogatory. It became known in 1900 and after appearing in one of the famous New York newspapers was used as general name of people living in mountainous places of the US (Appalachians, Caraway Mountains, Ozarks Mountains and Uwharrie Mountains). In the course of time Hillbilly obtained negative stereotypical connotations. According to the New York Journal it meant a person living in the hills, having no education, doing whatever he wants and speaking only the way he wants. They can’t dress properly, have nothing to speak about and have no more interests than drinking whiskey and shooting a gun.
But this stereotypical term has another meaning, which is not that negative. Hillbillies are also self-confident people having much courage to face and stand the laws of growing society. Although they are still considered violent.
What about the next season?
