Just that a person with horrible grammar, uncouth social manners. But look at our president, he is rich and lacks in social skills. He spells OK, I guess since his sentences are so short.

White trash isn't a racist term. If the time calls for it, I'll call black or hispanic people ghetto too in a similar fashion.

It's still a ugly vile phrase. It's elitist and I guess the term ghetto is too. Yet, money doesnt equal class. Growing up and living in the South Bronx, I can tell you many of my neighbors have more breeding and social grace then rich people in the Hamptons.

Def a good question tho; many of us white people DO use "white trash" against mostly low class anglos but, many even darker skin "Hispanic" looking people sometimes use AND catch that slur as well as real light skin "Blacks".

The crazy thing is a LOT of the true "PWT" kind ain't all "white" many times, quite a few are part American Indian.

I doubt this thread is about the different shades of color.

This woman is an arrogant (and she really has no reasons to be) individual who knows nothing about culture.
I doubt she really knows anything about interpersonal relationships.

In here, HER definition of "white trash" means "low class white folks" in my opinion. (in another word, she is implying she is one of the high class folks lol whatever "high class" means)

SOME (I said SOME, not all, so don't jump down my throat) children of poor immigrants from third world countries like to feel superior about themselves by putting other people down. Like I said, they might have some level of success in life, but they still feel insecure. I've seen it often.. Unfortunately.

Insecurities in a relationship usually stem from deep-seated personal issues. For example, a lot of asian people like to call mixed Asians wanna be whites, when most mixed kids can care less about colors or races. lol

I have two types friends. 1. trust fund babies 2. The so called Whiskey Tango

I have friends who actually own Italian restaurants, I also have friends who struggle to pay bills. I love them all because they are all very good people. I never judge people based which restaurant they go to. I don't know anybody who judge people based on which restaurant they go to. LOL I guess the world is a crazy place.

A true successful and cultured person never has to put others down; just like real smart people never call others stupid.

Most of us have various opinions that aren't fit for public consumption. Most of us are smart enough to keep our mouth shut.

Come on. There's entire regions of the country where it's the accepted lifestyle, and something to be proud of.

Come to the Dirty-spoKOMPTON, the term White-Trash is VERY fitting.

Every Southside-W199@h has a disgusting Boomcar......and that is just one example of the trashiness of this area.......mainly Whitetrashopolis, that is the Dirty-spoKOMPTON.
