Does it mean I am a redneck?

No, it did not say "Du bist ein Prolet"

How do you distinguish between neck and throat in German? They are two very different words in English.

You have to use context. Often, you have clue words like "am Hals" (outside) or "im Hals" (inside). We have a seperate word for the back of the neck, however: Nacken.

Aha! Thanks much, allintolearning and sakasiru! So for 'throat' (the inside of the neck) one would use either 'im Hals', or 'die Kehle' in German. (And yes, 'der Nacken' for the back of the neck). Herewith a lingot to wgehring for having asked the question ; )

Is "Eure Hals ist rot" correct usage?

No. First of all, the correct form would be "euer", since der Hals is masculinum. And then it doesn't make sense, since multiple people do not share a single neck.
