A derrogatory term for very poor white people. A racist epithet, not because it specifies race, per se, but because it implies that unsophisticated, disadvantaged white people require special distinction as such to differentiate them from your average poor, huddled masses yearning to be free.

People described as "white trash" tend to be more overtly racist than most, because their very lives prove the fact that you don't have to be black or hispanic to be underpriveleged. They blame non-whites and reverse racism for their oppression...then vote for Bush.
There's trash...and then there's white trash. Some folks you 'spect to be lazy good-fer-nuthin crooks. But white folks? It just ain't natural.

Term used either consciously or subconsciously by whites to make themselves feel better. Why would I think this you ask?
Because there is no black trash, yellow trash, or brown trash. Clearly there are a greater amount of whites that are not white trash, in their opinions, although of asians, blacks, and hispanics they must automatically be trash. I'll probably get this definition rejected by a mile because 95% of urban dictionary users are likely white. Also used to represent that whites have no troubles and that they think that they're white trash jokingly.
Oh, we're just white trash with our abercrombie and fitch shirts, flip flops, pants and underwear...

a term rich people use to describe poor people. that implies that usually "trash" isn't white, it's black.

anyone foolish enough to call someone else white trash would be "the narrow-minded bigot."

so they live in a trailer park? they like nascar? they have a fucking mullet? so? does that make them morally inferior?
"wow, so white trash."

This has to be the most racist racial slur ever. It implies that non-whites are stereotypically trashy. Therefore any white person that is vulgar,poor, and or helpful to non-whites is cosidered "Trash" to the "Great White Race". Of course that is bullshit because there is no great race except the human race.
The term really is the word used to uphold something called White Privilege among Whites. White supremists want to uphold White Privilege by using the media and featuring Blacks in inferior roles. Whenever a person reasons against White privilege they are considered "White Trash".

The upholding of "White privilege" by using the media has to be stopped. Therefore the term "White Trash" is the worst racial slur ever. This is America and we White Americans should recognize that the races are equal. As for non-whites, they could be themselves withut being "trashy".
Racist: "Look at Africa, it is messed up". The news proves Black people have no capability of running themselves".


Sensible One:
"The news mainly points out problems".


Racist:
"What are you talking about ? Let me guess, you are White Trash LOL ".

Sensible One:
"Just because I gave a reasonable response to your racist comment does not mean I'm White Trash".




Lesson(Moral):

IF YOU STOP THE TERM "WHITE TRASH", YOU END "WHITE PRIVELEGE"
