White Trash - Who's Trash?

The word alone makes me shiver and my blood boil. For Centuries people have classed themselves, whether it was righteous or religious they always find a reason to distinguish themselves from a certain cultural group or gene pool. This right to classification has brought about segregation and slavery. Good or bad it was the reason humans populated earth. Always running for a better and new World in an attempt to get away from classification. 

Sadly it is a World Wide phenomenon and the so called upper or elite class always finds away to be little fellow human beings.

When I sat down to right this article I turned to my favorite source of wisdom and reference, Google, to try and find the origin ... the alpha ... the original gene of White Trash. Surely from Adam some where this must have originated, but although the Bible has Slaves and Class Reference the first thing that caught my attention about this subject matter was Wikipedia.

White trash is a derogatory American English racial slur referring to poor white people, especially in the rural southern United States. The label signifies lower social class and degraded standards of living. The term has been adopted for people living on the fringes of the social order, who are seen as dangerous because they may be criminal, unpredictable, and without respect for authority whether it be political, legal, or moral.[1] The term is usually a racial slur,[2] but may also be used self-referentially by working class whites to jokingly describe their origins or lifestyle.[3][4][5][6]"

The term White trash first came into common use in the 1830s as a pejorative used by house slaves against poor whites. In 1833 Fanny Kemble, an English actress visiting Georgia, noted in her journal: "The slaves themselves entertain the very highest contempt for white servants, whom they designate as 'poor white trash'".[9][10]
In 1854, Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote the chapter "Poor White Trash" in her book A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin. Stowe wrote that slavery not only produces "degraded, miserable slaves", but also poor whites who are even more degraded and miserable. The plantation system forced those whites to struggle for subsistence. Beyond economic factors, Stowe traces this class to the shortage of schools and churches in their community, and says that both blacks and whites in the area look down on these "poor white trash".[11]
By 1855, the term had passed into common usage by upper-class whites, and was common usage among all Southerners, regardless of race, throughout the rest of the 19th century.[12]

Could have guest it had it origin in The Great Britain. Well this explains why I could not walk the path with Perry Sparrow, although she had a legitimate concern the fact she involved all people from a racial group in one sitting just showed me she not the brightest light on the Christmas tree. Growing up in coastal town one learn to deal with the bottom of the barrel gene pool. This included Doctors, Layers, Pastors, Nurses ... well any body and every body who fell into the money pit. It had nothing to do with Class or Religion. People go ape shit over holidays... don't care about the breed.

The problem is when one person assumes the superior position, This is when education fails humanity. That is why I wrote the Post "Hubris - Destruction of Man" Never in all my life did my parents ever taught us to out class ourselves above any culture religion or race, I was taught that each human deserves equal respect.

Social Media has strengthened Hubris. Normal life interaction with real life people was already tainted with this evil. It surfaced especially in schools and churches, Then came social drinking and over run any norm of sanity. This down ward spiral of human moral values, Hubris, was nos nocked with the birth of blogging and social media.

The danger about Hubris is making people feel worthless and exposes them to all sorts of immature bullies. We are all equal. Some of us are more gifted than other. Some of us are differently skilled than others, but we are all equal and only when we win the Hubris monster will we survive the onslaught of evil.
