    Re: sentence

    • All (that) Rossville breeds is rednecks.
    • All (that) Rossville breeds are rednecks.

    => All are rednecks
    • Rednecks are all that Rossville breeds.

    Re: sentence

    This is not an "All of..." construction, as in "All of the applicants were qualified."

    In your sentence, 'all' means 'everything', and takes the singular verb, even if a plurality is implied:
    Woe! All is now lost!

    All Rossville breeds is rednecks.
