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.

Poor whites lacking means of and ignorant in birth control and therefore breed like rabbits without the financial means to rear children. Whitetrash are often percieved as possible drug users, low educational attainment or rural dwellers but often live in urban areas, most often trailer parks. They can often be seen in Walmart. Sometimes confused with hillbilly or hick.
Whitetrash are the are the #1 thing that is most wrong with America today.

It is a social class label that originated from the poor whites in the West Virginia, Northern/Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio and southwestern Pennsylvania areas.

Many have a very similar lifestyles to each other and many were raised in that type of environment, never traveled anywhere nor lived anywhere but in that type of community.

That lifestyle consist of the following

Watching NASCAR events on TV

Leisure Shopping at Walmart

Fixing up older vehicles in their yard

Listen to old Rock songs such as Lynard Skynard, The Eagles, CCR and Bob Segar.

Talk about how the world is going to hell because of a large number of social issues that are on the news

They feel that they are a "victim" of others including the government, "outsiders" such as minorities and upper income people.

Deep down, they feel that many look down on this culture so they lash out in frustration to justify their existence.

Many do NOT have any type of formal education beyond high school.

A premier occupation to these people are usually Union jobs in the North, and factory jobs in the south where a relative assisted them on entry of the job.
(This is EXTREMELY common and I have seen this first hand, even with jobs in the Government sector where they were not qualified for the job in any capacity)

Many of them have friends of other races but they have deeply ingrained racists views on minorities.
They view most blacks as "ghetto" and the blacks who appear educated as "uppity".
Hey bubba,
Have you seen dat nigga Obama on TV?
Man is sure is a uppity nigga!!
Those type of people think we are white trash

An American social subculture, particularly 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.

People who are inconsiderate of their neighbors and put garbage, like old bicycles and cars in front of their house as lawn decorations. Generally uneducated and are breeders. Also tend to have one or two mentally slow siblings in the family. They buy used, shit cars and also take government handouts. Usually, if employed, work menial jobs like child care (baby sitting) or raking leaves for the town's public works department.
The Schlosses are such white trash, how do you like their front lawn? They painted and old bicycle which is now the centerpiece of their hillbilly garden.

One who lives in the town of Plymouth, NY. A town where most of the residents are related and inbred. When a White Trash kid is born, his/her father is usually not present and his name isn't on the child's birth certificate. A White Trash person is usually creepy and wears over sized hand-me-downs from their parents. The most popular sport among white trash people is NASCAR, but 99% of the spectators at monster truck rallies are white trash.
Craig: "Hey, have you seen that creepy kid?"

Justin: "Yeah! He's really white trash."

Ugly, filthy whore who will chase after anyone, including trying to sleep with her brother-in-law.
Patrisha is a perfect example of white trash because she is bankrupt, has nothing, and marries older, ugly men who have money in order to get their money. Then, they continue to show what white trash they are because they chase after many other men, including their brother-in-law.
