    Why is Red Necks & White trash acceptable vocabulary?

    Jay Leno does a skit weekly on Red Neck inventions.

    I admit I laugh, but I also know that the double standard in America
    would prevent him from doing the same segment about blacks.

    I can think of a few slang words to describe the minority community, that
    would sure to bring an infraction. If Jay Leno used those words he
    would be be off the air.

    When you think about it... those words are no different than using
    Red Necks and White Trash to describe poor uneducated white people.

    I think we are comparing the use of "Redneck" and "White Trash" with the use of the "N" word.

    The "N" word was used to describe blacks during slavery. Its such an offensive term to blacks that I can't even type it. THAT should be reason enough why its offensive. If more whites get offended by the term "white Trash" then maybe more people will stop using it. But HONESTLY to this day, the only person who I have seen be offended by the term was Donald Trump...and I dont identify with that homie at all.

    YouTube - The Apprentice white trash

    Point and case: The "C" word.... ULTRA offensive to women. I dare anyone to use it to the face of the next woman he sees...I bet its the last time they use it.

    "See You Next Tuesday" is the way around using the "C" word. I laughed my b's off when I heard that one!

    I once got a warning here on this board for using the term "Redneck"...so I'll give the mod's props for appropriate reaction.

    Maybe it's ok to use the term "Ghetto trash"? It SHOULD be fine & dandy to use as often as "white trash" is used.

    Whattayou guys think?

    I think that's pretty much it ...

    However ... white trash people do not seem to have any protections.

    what's up with that ... :rofl:

    NAWTP ... National Association of White Trash People ... :confused3:

    NAWTH ... National Association of White Trash Humans.

    NAWTCU ... National Association of White Trash Carbon Units.

    do other countries have white trash or are they a specialty of the USA.

    If you used "white trash" or "red neck" in this forum in a disparaging way, you'd get an infraction. That said, those words are not quite as bad as the n- word, which was often used by racists in a venomous way; thus it has become a dirty word.

    Necks are good people. Some call me a neck but I have all my teeth. So I think I am a NINO which is a neck in name only.

    Bullcrap. I see those terms all the time in this forum - 99% of the time comine from liberals. I bet you haven't given a single one of them an infraction.

    I am not talking about the "N" word.

    There are quite a few other slang words to describe minorites that are
    in line with calling poor white people red necks.

    Example....
    * Wet Back
    * Bone Head
    * Porch Monkey...

    That is enough to prove my point.

    I got a grief in this forum in the past for using the word Jap to describe the Japanese....

    Jap is the first 3 letters of the word.

    How is that offensive?

    I do not feel I have used the above words in a disparaging way.
    I just want to point out the double standard in America.
    I do not want or plan to use any of the above words in any future
    posts.

    It doesn't have to be the N word as a comparrison, as we all know the N word is extremely derogatory. As CoJ mentioned, it could be any number of terms. Clearly, there is an obvious double standard present. It's ok to ridicule some in a joking manner, with derogatory terms, since it's in the name of humor, but not always ok when it's someone else.

    CoJ...some people delude themselves into believing it is more harmful to criticize a person of color than it is to do the same to a caucasian....BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE WHITE.

    Anyone with a thread of common sense knows that's wrong...so why do people insist it's right?

    ANSWER: Because they have no common sense.

    I also believe some whites carry this "false" burden of guilt over slavery, oppression and racism. Again, anyone with any common sense knows it's impossible to have or feel guilt if you've done nothing wrong...so why do some caucasions carry this false burden around with them?

    Answer: Because they're F**** up! Think about it.....

    For all we know that are a couple of gulf war veterans down on
    their luck.

    They probably don't have any children they are unwilling to support.
