What's the difference between white trash and ghetto minorities?

I think they are the same both are horrible to be around and they wonder why people look down on them.

But I ran into a guy who seems to think that one is better the other I disagreed and it lead to a two hour argument.

Are they the same or are they different or am I missing something?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Shit people are shit people. Ethnicity has nothing to do with people being cunts.

  • One has a higher violent crime rate, the other has a higher property crime rate.

    • Crime is crime and they are both still shitty.

  • Skin color.

    All white-trash has to do is clean up their appearance a bit and learn how to speak normal enough in an interview to get a job; of course many of them will steal and eventually get fired. While even if some ghetto-trash cleans up their appearance, there's a very slim chance they will even get the job, and if they do, the boss will be on their ass constantly.

    So personally, I think ghetto is worse, because they have it worse. We treat them like complete garbage because of skin color and stereotypes that we don't give the ones that want to make a difference the chance to change their lives. In this world if you're born black and poor, that's two strikes against you, and additional one if you're female. However, with white-trash, we shake our heads and hope they straighten up.

    • Ghetto trash is worse because there is a culture there that makes it actively worse and keeps people from getting out of it. I’ve seen my fair share of white trash neighborhoods or trailer parks. They don’t have a creed nor unified banner. The white trash neighborhoods are the lowest tier you can find yourself in as a white population.
      Ghetto communities on the other hand has the Ghetto no snitch culture which is the worst form of urban creed I’ve seen. Both cause a reduction of property value. Mostly they are the same but ghettos are slightly worst.

      • I believe neither white-trashiness nor ghetto is a culture, but more of a problem. Ghetto and regular black people at this point are simply American as the same as white people and trash, which is why I hate the term African-American or minorities, because not only does it sound like we view them as lesser than American but there's no African to speak of other than their ancestry; so the culture of these people have long faded during the generations of those who endured slavery. Also, as whites are descendants of immigrants too, we don't call them European-American now do we?

        Ghettos, why do these exist? Why are areas that are so bad mostly black? It's remnants of segregation and extreme racism. Black women and men who wanted a decent life had to fight hard for it, and though well educated and respect at their work place, despite being dark-skinned, they still need to live in fear during those times. Many in those days who didn't have the education and willpower to face such injustice just wallowed in the cage of poverty forced upon them. Did you know that even white men/women who wanted to give blacks a proper education were often murdered if discovered in those days, so they had to do it in secret before laws were changed.

        To put it simply, history has lasting affects on society, how we perceive things, and more. It's easy to point finger at blacks and say, "They need to get their shit together and stop being violent garbage." But if you think about it, in the past, how were blacks able to become successful? Through entertainment; basketball stars, singers, performers. Back in the day, those who succeeded brought us great music and performances for us to remember for generations, but nowadays they're basically clowns trying to do reinvent an old tactic that has worked for generations in times of struggle to the point it has became a fad. As for the violence, in those old days what were those who couldn't entertain left to do? To leave the ghettos would risk being murdered by whites, but his/her mom, sisters, and brothers need food; they're lost. They turn to gangs, where they steal from each other.

        As for white-trash, in most cases they chose that path in some way or simply didn't get the help they needed. Whether it be getting involved with an addict, abusive home life, self-destructive behaviors, or an untreated mental illness of some kind that has gone unaware, white-trash don't really have to be trash since they have a lot more opportunities with little resistance from society. And though blacks have the same problem with addict/abuse/etc, with the stigma of skin-color and stereotypes, they will receive little to no help.

        So I'm glad we agree on which is worse, but I can't settle on such flimsy explanations for why things are what they are, because it's much deeper than that. I'm not saying we should dwell on the past, but we shouldn't ignore it, but truly acknowledge it and the damage it has done.

  • White trash don't commit violent crimes nearly as much as ghetto minorities.

  • For the little i've seen about it, White Trash are basically poor white american people. While their culture is worse, it seems tolerable.
    ghetto minorities in the other hand seems to have a very closed, acid and violent culture
