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.

Slang term for white people that usually live in a trailer park. With low incomes that spend their tax returns on things like big screen TV's instead of clothes for their kids. These people tend to be mouthy and fight frequently. Generally these people are uneducated and have little concern for personal hygiene. To see these people at their best watch Jerry Springer.

refers to a Caucasian American lacking sophistication and money
*in the past described white folks who couldn't afford slaves and were not part of high society, some even worse off than many slaves
*has been used to label both people with racist attitudes and people who consort with minorities
*white trash as opposed to "regular" trash, or minorities, which is why the phrase is all-around offensive and shouldn't be used by anyone

A term used broadly and often inaccurately to define a person or group of persons whom embody the concepts of ignorance, racism, violence, alcoholism, and anglo-saxon ancestry. It is often used as a label on the poor caucasian working class. Many people are labelled "white trash" because of the clothes they wear and their appearance, regardless of wealth and standing. Many that use this term do not understand the lifestyles of those whom they deride and oftentimes neglect to see that many people in the poor white working class are actually very intelligent tolerant people who tend to like professional wrestling, cheap beer and NASCAR. Many others were born with mental or physical disabilities and are forced into the stereotypical "white trash" lifestyle by the opressive society of the united states which tends to ignore its lowest classes. If correctly applied, the term refers to people such as the military personnel who had a wonderful time playing fraternity pranks on the prisoners of Abu Ghraib prison, the corporate scum who build their big box department stores right across the road from mom and pop stores which are then forced out of business for the greater good of a couple of obscenely rich assholes at the top, idiots who write "dotheads are dirty" on the walls of gas station restrooms that are not even run by east Indians but people of middle-eastern descent yet they are too full of themselves to notice a difference, and especially Texan wannabe cowboys who carelessly overrun foreign countries without noticing the thousands of innocent lives that are constantly being ended and then having the nerve to say "GOD IS ON OUR SIDE!"
There sure is a lot of white trash up there in the ruling class, isn't there?

A lazy ass son of a bitch who expects things come easy in life, is ignorant, and feels superior over others.

Often these rednecks are surprised that minorities who are educated and work hard go up the socioeconomic ladder to become working professionals, while they sit on their fat asses and expect the world of plenty to come to them.
Midwestern white folk.

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...
