Ek sien iemand soek op my blog na “Rooinek”.
Wat is ‘n Rooinek ? >
‘n Engels sprekende Suid Afrikaner van Britse afkoms. Letterlik beteken dit “red neck” in Engels, oor hulle nekke so rooi gebrand was van die son. Gedurende die Britte se oorlogsdae in Suid Afrika het hulle kêpse nie baie weerstand gebied teen die Afrika son nie en sodoende die sonbrand opgedoen.
Die term “Red neck” het egter ‘n heel anderste betekenis (Alhoewel die rooi songebrande nek voorkom)
Urban Dictionary beskryf dit as volg :
Mildly offensive term for a lower class white person from the southeastern states of the USA. Derives from someone who spent a lot of time on manual labour outside and so received a “red neck” from the sun.
“The glorious absence of sophistication”
