This epithet has always amused me, especially when used by SJWs, ones that wake up in the morning as superheroes, hell bent on finding a victim, even if it means using extreme nuance in order for us mere mortals to see what they are seeing.
Yet, they can’t see that the term “white trash” is an epithet against non-whites.
Let me explain.
When you say white trash you are essentially telling the listener “trash is a noun that normally conjures up images of brown people in our minds, so I’m going to qualify it by saying white trash.”
“Fred, let me tell you about how I made a wrong turn and ended up in this scummy neighborhood. I know what you’re thinking, but get this, this neighborhood was filled with white trash. I know, I know. Can you imagine?”
When have you ever heard anyone use the term black trash?
“Fred, I made a wrong turn and ended up in this black neighborhood. And, I know this is going to be hard to believe, but it was filled with black trash.”
This would never be said. The qualifier would only be made if the neighborhood was a good one.
“Fred, I turned into this black neighborhood. I know what you’re thinking, but it was a nice neighborhood. I was shocked.”
The term black neighborhood implies that it’s a bad neighborhood.
The term white neighborhood implies that it’s a good neighborhood.
When someone says “white trash” it’s meant to qualify the term trash outside of the expected norms of our society.
When a SJW uses the term “white trash,” trying to make white people feel bad, they aren’t thinking deeply enough to realize they are slamming brown people.
