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.

The equivalent to a nigger except only white. It means ACTING low class--being vulgar, ingnorant,and disrespectful.

Some people think white trash only exists in the country but it can exist anywhere: in the upper class, middle and even in the suburbs.
"Mary is taking and selling drugs," said Jason.

"Yeah, she's definitely white trash. She thinks just because she lives in the suburbs that she is better than those she calls niggers," said Karen.

Insectile, subhuman vermin from the Appalachian Mtns. Always drunk, always fighting, always stealing, always racist, always fucking anything that walks on two legs (or more than two legs or less than two legs), always in jail, these are the products of 10 consecutive generations of brother-sister fucking with some barnyard animals thrown in to give their gene pool that extra spice. They can be identified as unbelievably macho, bullying, 300-pound, trailer-living, bingo-playing, Elvis-plate collecting, front-teeth-missing, Walmart-shopping, "y'all"-saying, cowboy-hat-wearing, Camaro-driving, horribly hygiened, Bible-thumping, woman-beating, English-butchering, meth-injecting, beer-guzzling, NASCAR-watching embarrassment to carbon molecules whose only purpose in their obnoxious, protohuman existence is human cockfighting on the Jerry Springer show. They tend to drop out of school at 15 to spawn as many of their filth as they can (often with blood relatives) and because they have the I.Q. of a toilet seat, their banal, quacking conversations (or the noise that passes for them) always revolve around fucking or kicking someone's ass. Nothing else. The rest of their noise is ape-like hooting and hollering (can't tell if it's joy or anger) over whatever childish stimuli their damaged shit-for-brains can detect. They can also be identified by their gallons of cheap beer consumed every morning, always wearing a wife-beater and the old, rusted hulks of cars in their yard and the 40-year-old pickup truck that does run has mud splattered up to the windows and a rag where the gas cap should be. They also consider McDonald's as "going out to dinner."
Aint-it-Cool-News talkbackers, Springer guests, cowboys, country/western musicians and Britney Spears are all white trash.

The word "White Trash" is thrown around a lot these days. People usually corollate white trash with being poor. You can actually be white trash and be on any level of the social class; rich, poor, middle class, poverty, whatever. Some people are simply less privileged than others, so they can not be judged by the things they posess.
The definition of White Trash sort of goes along with Jeff Foxworthy's definition of Redneck which is "An extreme abscence of sophistication." That's all white trash is; however, even if one has nice things that person can still be white trash. White Trash people are often times so unsophisticated that they do not even know they are white trash. If one is truly white trash that person is not supposed to know about it.
It is just a coincidence, but many white trash people have bad taste in things. Nascar lovers are often white trash. People who get drunk are often white trash. A drink or a glass of wine are nice every now and then , but getting plastered and shit-faced is just stupid. What's even more white trash than that is saving all of your beer bottles and putting them on the counter. As if they need to be on display. They exhibit other bad habits. They smoke a lot. They have very low grooming standards. The smell bad. They have terrible taste and are badly dressed; tank tops, bandanas, etc...They put their couches on their front porches, and it just looks hideous. They do not take very good care of their kids. They sometimes abuse them or are very negligent. The beat their spouses. Their English is very improper. They also like to curse a lot. They think that saying the "f-word" every other word makes them sound like big people.
What makes people more white trash than anything is their moral judgement however. They take pleasure in hurting others. They are racist. They sleep around a lot and don't even bother to use protection. They date people who do not respect them, or they do not respect their partners. They pick on other people to make themselves feel good. They love to be verbally abusive. They enjoy picking fights, and being rude because it gives them pleasure. Anytime they are nice to other people there is always an alterior motive for some personal gain. They are greedy. They are selfish. Instead of supporting their families they will buy extravegant things for themselves such as a high definition television. White trash people are just bad people. They basically have no social grace, and they feel that the world owes them.
Britney Spears: (stoned) Government came and took my baby! Oh well! Maybe I'll go exploit myself some more. While I'm at it I'll go marry some grungy guy who does not respect me! Fuck yeah!
Oprah: Britney you are so White Trash!

White people that are poor as hell. Most are interbred and have nervous twitches and a lack of teeth. Most run meth labs and moonshine to obtain money.

A dysfunctional American subculture, primarily poor as heck white people who reproduce like rabbits without the money to raise kids in a decent environment. They are completely ignorant of birth control—even condoms and don’t give a dam about the welfare of children if they have them. Heck, they are ignorant, period, and don’t have much of an education. They probably live on GOV aid in the form of welfare or food stamps, and sometimes use the money to pay for alcohol, tobacco, drugs or just sleezy sex. If they don’t live on GOV aid, they probably work a minimum wage career that doesn’t require any skills like being a checkout clerk, a bagger in a store, collecting shopping carts or even a bar-bouncer if the guy is buff enough. Many live in trailerparks, but also in rundown apartments or government subsidized housing. They can frequently be seen shopping their favorite store—Walmart and most of the men won’t hesitate to wear their wifebeater shirt in the store without a second thought. They usually couldn’t care any less about hygene and it even shows on their children. They are often dirty and smelly, while the men with facial hair don’t shave making it look as though their beard/mustache has collected crumbs.
Whitetrash are about the only American commodity we will never run out of.
