The real estate blog Movoto recently published a study that identified the top redneck cities in the United States, and Oklahoma City was named as one of the locations. In fact, two Oklahoma cities were named in the top five! So what qualifies for a Movoto “redneck city?” In it’s listing description, it says that redneck cities are judged and ranked on a variety of factors, such as the amount of country music stations, the amount of Wal-Mart stores per capita, and the amount of gun & ammo stores, among other deciding factors.
The top five from the list are as follows:
1. Atlanta, GA
2. Kansas City, MO
3. Oklahoma City, OK
4. Nashville, TN
5. Tulsa, OK
The Oklahoma City movers have learned that other factors contributed to the findings, such as the high school dropout rate (which Cleveland came in #1 for), and the locations of NASCAR tracks. Well what do you think? Is Oklahoma City a “redneck city” or not?
