Uneducated and slow witted people who lack social graces and proper hygene. When they come in the "Northern" variety they usually inhabit bleak industrial neighbourhoods of rust belt cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Youngstown, and Flint. A common denominater amongst many from this class is a lack of a high school diploma, resentment toward local law enforcement, bitter feuds with their neighbours, lack of self respect, a love of cigarette smoking, a proclivity toward alcohol and drug abuse, a beligerant attitude, a need to use foul language, and an absolut abhorance of soap or cleanliness of any kind. Sometimes these people will work menial jobs, particularly in the fast food industry for women, and low end unskilled mechanical or construction jobs for the men. More often than not though many are either out on State compensation for "bad backs" or some form of government welfare. Automobiles of choice are usually low-end domestic varieties of at least ten years of age. Quite often certain mechanical defects are apparent such as dragging mufflers, bashed in front-ends, dangling rear bumpers wired to the frame, and of course, rust, rust, and more rust. More often than not, many from this class have had their driving privledges revoked due to alcohol issues, so battered old bicycles are always in fashion. Indeed, in many of the high streets where such people predominate, one will often be reminded of Beishing, China because of so many middle-aged men tooling along the streets on bicycles. Mulletts, once popular with the white trash of the rust belt have now given way to buzz-cuts and goatees as so many middle class men and women are now sporting longer hair styles. Of course, the white tee shirt and K-Mart jeans are still considered haute coiture. WWF Wrestling is still a big draw for many of these people and many are also rabid NFL fans as they are sometimes some of the biggest supporters of their beloved "Bills," Browns," "Lions," and "Steelers." Their tastes in music usually runs along the line of heavy metal for the young and top 40 for the adults. "Southern" white trash are a completely different kettle of fish. Since so many of the previous writers dwelled exclusively on their habits, I won't go any further, but suffice it to say they are more rural in their backgrounds and their tastes.

White Trash: a derogatory term and classist stereotype, which is used very broadly and mostly inaccurately used to describe rural, and/or poverty class individuals. (Favored mostly by the Bourgeois masses that watch too much TV.)
The ignorant suburbanite watched the bleach blonde in high heels and cut-off jeans walk down Bourbon Street in giddy awe of all the bright lights and people, and then turned to his friend and said "hey, how’s about that White Trash Hooker!”

Ugly, overweight, uneducated, entitled, ignorant, bigot. Hates anyone with the brains or talent that they lack. Rude, demanding, pushy, heinous manners, doesn't tip at restaurants, always looking for handouts and freebees. Spends hundreds of dollars each month on useless crap while someone else picks up the tab. Racist, homophobic, hits children, curses loudly in public loves Wal-mart.

Persons with white colored skin with low or no income who live a trashy lifestyle that includes sleeping around with many partners (which most of the time results in a whitetrash female having multiple babies with multiple fathers), drinking lots of cheap beer out of cans, smoking full flavor generic cigarettes(usually at LEAST one pack a day), attending NASCAR events, and living in an unkempt, dirty apartment or trailer park with many cats and dogs. Often the animals are allowed to deficate all over the property. Usually the homeof a white trash individual will be decorated with wood paneling on the walls, patio furniture in the living room/ dining room/ kitchen and dart boards, neon beers signs and NASCAR memoribilia will adorn the walls. White trash men often have their hair styled in a mullet and their women often still wear the eighties aqua net spiral perm with bangs that are inches high. The vehicle of choice of the white trash indiviual will be a Chevy Camaro or old model harley davidson.
"Bobbi that whitetrash girl I met tailgating last week asked me to come to her BBQ so I can meet her Ex husband and five kids. I better stock up on Busch and Marlboro reds to bring as party favors."

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.
