A very broad term that can vary from region to region. Usually used to describe lowclass, selfish, and generally unintelligent people who usually don't know, or are in denial about thier overall shitty lifestyle.They are usually behind the current trends by 4-10 years.
Though it does vary regionally, some common characteristics may include:
-In men, a shaved head and goatee beard are common to cast the illusion that they are a bouncer at a bar
-In women it is common to see skimpy clothing and tattoos on thier back above thier pantline (see tramp stamp)
-Some wear clothing that was popular with African-Americans 3-4 years ago. Also,they sometimes wear basketball jerseys and shorts, though thier physique would suggest that they have never played any sports...ever
-Talk and act like they are good at fighting, usually it is in fact, only an act.
-They buy items to repair thier home, car, etc. though with good intentions, usually aren't used and sometimes converted to various pieces of furniture
-Are always proud of material items that someone else has(usually thier boss, or brother in law)
-Get tattoos and tongue or eyebrow piercings even though they have been out of style for approx. ten years
-Use "big" words and don't know the definition...or try to sound well spoken around non white trash. ex: "What had happened was,he had the audacity to not wanna fight, so i punched him in the face."
-Usually white trash can also be identified through thier children.Excessive animal hair on thier clothing, mohawk haircuts, and professional wrestling t-shirts are good indicaters.Along with loud talking, screaming, and intrusive questions to complete strangers.
-Use material items as an extension to prove thier worth or manhood. Including big trucks and or wheels, big dogs (pitbulls), and big television sets
-They almost always have a large ego. They feel that they are never wrong or at fault and if you feel differently they will threaten you physically
-They have very unique political views. The ones that actually work usually vote democrat because the media makes them feel they are upperclass if they do so. Ironically the non working ones with "disabilities" (bad back) are proud republicans even though its the democrats that keep thier welfare checks coming
-They always talk of being good parents, and upstanding citizens,though rarely are
-They don't feel that music is good unless it's been played on the radio a million times
-Not original thinkers, they only do or enjoy what they feel is mainstream and need constant verification from thier peers
-Ironically, they always have a negative opinion about everyone elses lifestyle or choices
-They sometimes do good things for others, but only so they can tell everyone about it and feel good about themselves or if there is a reward involved
-Are blindly proud of thier country, but have no understandind of how it actually operates
-They usually hate people that are more succesfull than them, but never do anything to better themselves
-Reality shows,or talent shows like American Idol are very popular with white trash as is daytime talk shows and police chase shows
-Many regularly attend motorsports events like Nascar, monster truck rallies, and demolition derbys...mostly the ones where they serve beer
-Any time a person has mossy oak camo furniture,or seat covers in thier vehicle, or wear camo clothing even when its not hunting season, automatically qualify
-They are more liberal with thier money. Instead of saving,feeding thier children or paying thier bills on time, they will buy video game consoles, and big screen televisions with any extra money they happen upon (tax returns,stimulus checks, or lottery/casino winnings)
There is a common misconception that white trash are only beer drinking,mullet having,camaro driving dirt bags that live in trailers, but that is an antiquated notion.With the help of Wal-Mart and over-seas trade, they can afford new clothes more often and blend in with regular people, so they are harder to spot these days.
white trash guy: "hey man, who you callin white trash?"
me: "umm, about 98% of the population"
anyone who goes by the name Paris Hilton, wants to be Paris Hilton, knows Paris Hilton, or has spent one night in Paris Hilton.
"Paris Hilton proves you don't have to be poor to be white trash".
Slang term for white people that usually live in a trailer park. With low incomes that spend their tax returns on things like big screen TV's instead of clothes for their kids. These people tend to be mouthy and fight frequently. Generally these people are uneducated and have little concern for personal hygiene. To see these people at their best watch Jerry Springer.

Bobby Joe's mullet makes him look so white trash.
An individual that may or may not be poor, but is monumentally ignorant and quite possibly stupid.
All Matt talks about is NASCAR when he can barely remember what street he lives on. What a piece of white trash.
White trash has nothing to do with money, and nothing to do really with how someone looks. You can be homeless or poor without being white trash, conversely you can live in a mansion and be white trash. See Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. Also white trash love to be in tribute bands for when it comes to art they are at best imitators. See Bon Jovi look alikes. White trash has nothing to do with blood line. You can have white trash parents and not be white trash yourself. You can be a Vanderbilt and have a white trash child. White trash is a mind set and a condition of the heart. The term denotes Anglo-Saxon ancestry but can really apply to anyone who thinks this way.
A white trash person revels in being stupid, is proud of it in fact. A white trash person is never ever wrong and never ever to blame. A white trash person is always the victim and never the perpetrator. A truly white trash person does not even know they are white trash. If you think you are white trash, you are probably not, for that means you have lowliness of mind, a white trash person actually has an monomaniacal Ego. They often will try to imitate others that they feel are intellectual or artistic and emulate what they think are socially desirable traits, however their work will have little soul or substance. Example: I have this friend Avery, she thinks she is an artist because she has the money to afford huge canvases but most of her work is ripped off of or copies of other people's style such as Pica...
Someone who is always poor and dirty and some of them are narrow-minded bigots. I really don't like them.

-Your neighbor is wearing Rebel flag attire, is hairy, and is missing so many teeth it looks like his tounge is in jail
-The neighbor is fat, ugly, wears oversized T-shirts and either smokes or drinks a lot, and her hair is nasty looking
-You see duct tape on everything
I looked out of my window one afternoon and saw a bunch of shitty looking pickups sloshing in a huge crater of mud, while some of the people over there looked on drinking beer and hooting. Some guy was putting duct tape on the door frame.
