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."

White trash has nothing to do with money, and nothing to do really with how someone looks. You can be homeless or poor without being white trash, conversely you can live in a mansion and be white trash. See Paris Hilton or Britney Spears. Also white trash love to be in tribute bands for when it comes to art they are at best imitators. See Bon Jovi look alikes. White trash has nothing to do with blood line. You can have white trash parents and not be white trash yourself. You can be a Vanderbilt and have a white trash child. White trash is a mind set and a condition of the heart. The term denotes Anglo-Saxon ancestry but can really apply to anyone who thinks this way.
A white trash person revels in being stupid, is proud of it in fact. A white trash person is never ever wrong and never ever to blame. A white trash person is always the victim and never the perpetrator. A truly white trash person does not even know they are white trash. If you think you are white trash, you are probably not, for that means you have lowliness of mind, a white trash person actually has an monomaniacal Ego. They often will try to imitate others that they feel are intellectual or artistic and emulate what they think are socially desirable traits, however their work will have little soul or substance. Example: I have this friend Avery, she thinks she is an artist because she has the money to afford huge canvases but most of her work is ripped off of or copies of other people's style such as Picasso. When she's not pretending to be an artist she is hanging out at bars, which cater to the white trash mystique; dartboards and bad cover bands and peroxide hair.
It's not that a person with a bad dye job or who is stuck in the 80's is white trash; it’s just coincidental that people that enjoy those things have a mindset that is completely atavistic.
There are exceptions to every rule. Even in Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell referred to some poor whites as the {Gentile Poor} meaning that although these individuals were in reduced circumstances that they were individuals of class, taste, and character and the "gentile poor", were always referred to separately in the book from "white trash". Ironically those who judge others for being white trash just because they are poor, are actually white trash themselves. White trash tends to worship and slave after their mammon God Money the most. That is why they have no problem with corrupt business practices with a company like Wal-Mart.
Being judgmental is a white trash trait, as well as being selfish and verbally abusive to others. They love to make others cry and see them hurt. A white trash person is more likely to turn their backs on their friends, stab them in the back, after using what they could get out them. They tend to be social parasites and try to ingratiate themselves into social circles completely for their own personal gain without ever planning to give back. White trash individuals especially the females, tend to be manipulators and very controlling of the men in their lives. They do have a tendency to be in bad physical shape or have poor dental health; although those things do not automatically make a person white trash. Some of the best saints in the world were the most ugly people in the world.
Ironically some white trash are quite attractive and wealthy such as Paris Hilton. A White trash person has no desire for self-improvement like learning a foreign language or reading a good book, or if they do it is only for show, such as having impressive titles on the shelf, or knowing only a few French phrases and claiming to be fluent. See my friend Avery.
She acts as if she were the goddess of art and culture, but people that truly know her inner workings see her for the bottom feeding white trash she truly is.

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
