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.
A white trash Beavis and Butthead all grown up.

White people, who are usually poor although not always. This term differs from terms such as cracker, or hillbilly that just describe poor white people. White trash, however, describes the person's lack of morals or respect. To see these people at their best, watch shows such as MAURY, or Jerry Springer, or any MTV reality show Teen Mom, Jersey Shore, Real World, etc.
Miley Cyrus is the proof that you can be rich and famous and still be white trash.

An individual of relative affluence and socioeconomic power who perpetuates the bootstrap myth by expressions and a(in)actions apathetic to the plight of poverty of their fellow human beings. Someone who denies the American Great Inequality and the insanity of the employment crisis on an individual and systemic level so that they can justify not lending a hand.
She became white trash when she turned a blind eye to her peers in need of help.

A term coined for poor white people, who proudly embrace their social lower class and have standards as such.
"Hey man what is white trash?"
"Oh they're just poor white people who only like white women with blonde hair, blue eyes, and huge jugs. And they have dentures. Ask Whitey he knows all about it."

Low-information Caucasoids who gravitate to a shameful socio-economic status. They can be seen or found at the return merchandise line at Wal-Mart, local recycling centers and at Golden Corral. They drive beat up filthy dirty oil burning cars without mufflers. They are often the subject of car repossession programs on TV as they tend to purchase used cars they can't afford. When they have enough credit to finance a car, they often abuse it to the point that its ruined before they turn 21. White trash women usually birth numerous children in their late teens or early 20's only to dump them on parents or grandparents to raise. Always screwing family and friends out money and then disappearing when it comes time to pay it back. They mistaken tattoo parlors for art museums. Their idea of an intellectual discussion is watching Al Sharpton on MSNBC. They record TV programs like "Full Throttle Saloon" and Jerry Springer and actually believe James Bond is a REAL person. The illiteracy prevails to the point that much of white trash America still believes Obama's campaign slogan of "Hope and Change", and that it applies to them. Lifestyle is known as either an "8 or 10". Meaning, the mobile home they live in is either 8 feet wide, or the more luxurious 10 foot wide version, complete with a litter of pit bull dogs, broken down appliances and a jumbo size velvet painting of Elvis in the living room.
You live in a 10?
Now that's big time white trash livin!
