White Trash

I have always just bucked this statement whenever I have heard someone use it in the past but now I am curious as to WHY people even use it in the first place?

 Personally I think this is an issue of judging a book by it's cover and just plain being afraid of the unknown

What are your thoughts on why people use this phrase?

It's a stereotypes just like any other. I'm not sure if it was either started by whites themselves for those of less wealthy means or by people from other races as retaliation for the usual racial slurs.

thanks for the responses

and really to be able to look at it from both sides is important to me

what makes someone white trash?

because they lick their fingers after eating kfc?

because they work 2 or more jobs to make ends meet and don't have time to do yoga?

Sometimes it's judging a book for being white... sometimes it's just an insult. It depends on the intent, and I believe this for all slurs.
