It dawned on me tonight; white trash for life.

Even though I'm sitting in the bed of a $30k truck, 10 feet away from my $10k motorcycle, drinking a microbrew, smoking an expensive cigar....I'm still sitting there in ratty old short, no shirt, tattoos, and lime green flip-flops I got at Target.

So, when did you realize you were white trash for life.

I'm sure that you mean "lower middle class" right.LOL If you've got a 30K truck and all I've got is a 1K rusted out Ford that's 20 yrs. old then what the heck am I?

I was 28 before I realized that growing up in a trailer was a bad thing. If it took me that long to figure it out, then there is no hope.

I'm somewhat similiar. I drive around in a beat up late 80's chevy celebrity, smoke USA Golds, wear patched up jeans with beat up shirts showing off my tats, blast skynard, but then I retire to my 1.5 million dollar house (most of the price is location, I don't live in a mansion). Yea I feel white trash, but hey its they way to live.

I'm not... Might have some of the trappings in an earlier decade (when the bike was 'new', and recent-year Firebirds still had the 'screaming chicken' on the hood...)... 97 Z28 82 GS-450 2 rifles, 2 pistols, no shotguns (yet, that will probably settle at 2 - Moss 500 & Saiga-12C)... Not a truck/SUV fan (will never drive one, unless it's for work), and don't drink... Wear Wal-mart t-shirts (assorted solid colors. I hate spending $$$ on clothes), blue jeans, and an AF surplus leather jacket (I removed the former owner's wings & Air Mob Cmd patch)...

Exactly. I think some of ya'll are taking this too seriously. I think it's a badge of honor personally. One of my best friends is Puerto Rican, we call him tan trash. Last night I just found it funny that a few years ago I would have been sitting on a lawn chair that I wasn't quite sure where I got it, or the sofa in the carport, in front of my '87 Dodge Ramcharger, drinking a Pabst Blue Ribbon, and dippin' Copenhagen long cut. The trappings may have changed (and there's a difference between liking nice things and working to earn them, and giving a shit), but I'm still the same tattooed guy in the Target flip flops and the ratty shorts. I would love to be that guy with the $80k sports car (got a thing for Maseratis) sitting in front of my $1mil house with my friends on our lawn chairs, ruining property values for everyone within a 2 mile radius. I'll probably have a '70s muscle car up on blocks just for good measure.

White Trash = the equivilent of what they call black, latinos, and any other ethnic lowlife. Something of which I am not. I never have been white trash. I think the definitive White Trash stigma belongs to those idiots who show up on the Jerry Springer Show, or any show that is similar in nature. Another trait of White Trash is a person who spends 30K or more on a vehicle, but lives in a run down trailer or who is a renter. Personally after lurking for a few months off and on and finally joining a few days ago I decided to choose this thread for my first posting. Why? Because after spending a few days reading a lot of the threads and replies I've determined that there are a lot of members in here who qualify for White Trash status. Which doesn't speak well for the gun community as a whole. Education is the key to not becoming or bein White Trash. Fortunately for me I am well educated and my family raised me well. Flame on if you wish, but I only answered your question as honestly as I could.

Here is how we gave directions to our house when I was growing up. Turn right off the paved road and go passed the cattle guard. Turn right on the gravel road. We live in the second RED tar paper house on the right. The houses were either red or green tar paper. None of them had house numbers.

With an attitude like that you're not going to last very long. It's a shame that all your fancy-type book learnin didn't teach you shit about people. I have a master's degree in construciton management, and a bachelor's in architectural design, yet some of my best friends, and the coolest damn people I've ever met, are highschool dropouts that don't make half of what I do every year. I strongly suggest you remove your head from your ass before posting again. Are there idiots on this board? You betcha. Is there sometimes a vaccuum of intelligent conversation? sure. Have I complained about both in the past? damn skippy. when you say "my family raised me well" I know that what you mean to say is "my mommy and daddy are very well off and spoiled my pansy-ass growing up. Then they went and paid for me to hide from the real world in college, all the while taking it up the ass from my frat brothers. Now I'm out of school and pretending to work for daddy's business, but they still pay me an allowance." Pull the golden spoon out of your mouth, or you're going to choke on it when one of us punches you in the face.

Hello Norman. Excuse me, but, you can't even flame intelligently. Was it your intention when beginning this thread to turn it into a Jerry Springer format? It looks to me like you would fit right in on his show, judging by the way you took everything I said so personal. Not only that, but you also distorted everything I said into what you perceived as what I am. To prove my point, I'll quote you here.

IF by "white trash" you mean "down to earth country boy" then you can count me in. If , on the other hand, you mean "trailer trash" then that's not me. In my way of thinking "white trash" means people that are on government assitance and live in a trailer, they don't take a bath regular, don't keep their place clean and, in general, are a bad example of the way a person of any color should live. I'm not trying to hack on ya', I know this is all in fun but I think we just need a clarifacation on the definition of what it is we're all talking about. Generally I'd say that I'm just a plain, simple country boy that likes trucks, good 'shine, sitting by the fire cleaning my guns and watching HOCKEY(the greatest game on earth), hope ya'll have a Happy Turkey Day. Talk at ya'll later.
