Whether it’s America’s embrace of our verbally-challenged president, backlash against Hollywood’s hoity-toity values or the omnipresence of obnoxious reality show jerks, white trash is white hot. Formerly an insult originated in the antebellum South, the term now describes a growing state of cool, moving beyond the now-pass?trucker hats and PBR-in-a-can to full-on “keeping it real.?In fashion lingo, white trash is the ghetto fabulous for spring.

Do you think being white trash is the new trend?

If 'keeping it real' means being an uneducated, poorly dressed, dumbass, then I'm perfectly happy keeping it 'unreal.'

A similiar growth has occured in 'Chav' culture in Britain.

"Acting" white trash, maybe.

I'm sure most of those who enjoy acting like it wouldn't enjoy actually *living* like it (poor, in a trailer, on welfare, etc.), though.

I am so far behind the times... I have not heard of this one.

Dressing like white trash is (hence all the ripped jeans, tank top, trucker hat trends), but like Cass said, I can't see anyone in Hollywood who dresses like that in a trailer or on welfare.

unfortunately, yes, although i'm rather ashamed of the whole "white trash" image we have going in america

Completely, especially in the South.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/5/06 - 3:06:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and it all started with factory made "vantage" clothing...

Hey, it works for me.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/8/06 - 6:29:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
i sure and hell hope not but eh.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/1/06 - 10:10:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eh, the only people who really think that it is cool are the people who actually are white trash. They're trying to make themselves feel better. Who can blame 'em? Most people are white trash thier whole lives.

It's sad, but that's actually starting to seem like a distinct possibility. Oh well, one more reason for me to be ostracized. Hooray for the degredation of society!
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/27/06 - 5:09:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
why are you being a racist now?
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 6:20:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Love the first shot
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 6:43:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Now what if the question was \"Do you think being black trash is the new trend\"?

Would it have been approved? No way.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/18/06 - 8:16:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not.

Do they actually call it black trash though?

Wow! Does Britney look completely white trach in that pic! There she is, Britney in all of her Louisiana glory.
And if being "white trash" is the new trend, I certainly will not be following it... but I don't follow trends... the only time I was actually "in" as a trend was the "grunge" era of the early-mid 1990s... but I was "grunge" before "grunge" and remain "grunge" to this day. I am still stuck in the early-mid 1990s. LOL.

white trash is not a trend. white trash is an insult.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 12/30/06 - 2:30:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't get the people who have shirts with "White Trash" written on them. I don't know why they would want to advertise that...
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 10:14:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 1/5/07 - 11:18:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would hope it wasn't!
