NASHVILLE — February 14, 2013 — Cultural stereotypes are brought to the forefront in this week’s all-new episode of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION as the Clampet family travels to Dearborn, Mich., home to the largest Muslim population in the United States. To this redneck family, Muslim rituals and the Arabic language do not belong in America, however, through various interactions and a traditional home-cooked meal with a Muslim family, the Clampets gain a better understanding of the Islamic faith and recognize their preconceived notions may have been incorrect. While the two families may come from different backgrounds and cultures, they realize they share many similar beliefs and values, resulting in a learning experience for everyone involved.
