5. Call it regionalist, call it whatever you want

8. Actually

 

There are a lot of black people named Cletus. The reason many associate it with white hillbillies is the Dukes of Hazard and Simpsons

3. Racist?

 

That is more of a regionalist or classist term. (assuming the hillbilly stereotype is a class)
