Heard this discussed a few times. Some people take offense, some say it isn't any worse than hillbilly or redneck...

Another step in my quest for true politcal correctness

think of it this way.....would "black trash" be a racial slur?



It depends what color you are and what company you are in. Jsut like the N word. It's okay to say if you're black, but not if you're white.

Its the opposite of the n-word. Anyone can use it, and those that complain are told to stfu as it doesnt mean anything.

Locally we have a road called the 'Powhite Parkway", pronounced po-white and not pow-hite. The joke is that if you get a ticket for littering on this road, that you were charged for being involved with 'powhite trash'.

I am deeply offended and I think you should be banned. Why don't you just come right and say all the other names for me that you are thinking you hatyeful person----ridgerunner,cracker,inbred hillbilly M--f--er,coal sack,razorback,trailer trash,georgia white,Misssissipi albino, Louisisan swamp wiggle, redneck,blue eyed devil, bright,MASTER,country,cowboy,-----why don't you just come out and say it?

Depends on who called me it
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 7:54:56 AM EST
I consider it an insult, yes.
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 7:54:57 AM EST
Depends on how it is used and by whom. Much like other derogatory words in common use by various races, it is all in what is meant. If it is based in some sort of fact, it probably isn't anymore offensive than anything else. If someone of another race who I didn't know(or my race for that matter) called me White Trash I would be no less offended than a homosexual who was just called a faggot, or a black person who was called a n*****.

Is ghetto trash? Racism goes both ways. It should not be tolerated in either direction and it's time to stop one-sidedness.

I take more offense to white trash because to me it's says that I have no class whatsoever.

No, it's not a racial slur. White people can't be insulted. They are not allowed to take offense to any names that some one may call them.

Yes, as are Redneck, Hillbilly, trailer trash, etc. It's the only acceptable racial/ethnic slur in American society.

Exactly. Not until we have a White History Month will it become offensive and off limits publicly, honky bitch.

Can you call it Caucasion Entertainment Television instead? WET is to to misleading...

As for the term "white trash" its kinda like Chris Rock and the whole skit about the N word. There are black people and then there are nig...(don't wanna get in trouble). Whites are the same way, there are white people and then there are white trash. Theres a difference.
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 2:07:56 PM EST
white trash is the same as nigger or jew. nothing wrong with those names. some people just are.

Hmmmm, I think this may be at the heart of it.

I've never really understood all the government effort to change my vocabulary to a more sensative one. I'm a blue eyed, white Southerner and none of the previously mentioned names bothers me much. In fact, when called cracker, ridgerunner, white trash etc.,etc.,etc., I kind of tend to play it up for all its worth. Seems to piss'em off even more.

In the early days only whites had cars because curb feelers had not been invented yet. So white people were always honking their horns.
