    White Trash: The Construction of an American Scapegoat

    White Trash: The Construction of an American Scapegoat


    Equality is simultaneously the greatest accomplishment and worst failure of America. It is the place where idealism and reality come to blows in American culture. Despite the glossy veneer of "political correctness" which has been painted over the rust and corrosion of centuries of racism and classism, the enduring American necessity for a social "other" has chosen working class whites as the focal scapegoat of our time. This site explores the general treatment of working class whites in the media -- comics, literature, film and television; dealing in depth with the areas of religion, race relations, work and lifestyle in defining working class whites as a unique social culture.

    I couldn't read very far. This site is twisted, it makes some good points then wraps them back around with PC logic. In it's writing it is an example of the very "white guilt" it claims to be talking about objectively.

    In Defence of the White Working Class

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/m...17570#comments

    Anti-racism has become the central theme of today's political culture, yet the obsessive concern for racial sensitivities rarely seems to be applied to the white working class. This is the one ethnic group that it is perfectly acceptable to insult and ignore.

    Once regarded as the backbone of Britain, the people who saved our country in two world wars, the indigenous, less affluent, sector of the population is now treated with contempt by liberal elitists, who sneer at the supposed idleness, vulgarity, xenophobia and ignorance of so-called "chavs" or "white trash".

    This kind of repellent snobbery and prejudice was captured in an extraordinary outburst from newspaper columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. Condemning white working-class Britons as "either too lazy or too expensive to compete" in the new era of multi-racialism, she wrote that "tax-paying immigrants past and present keep indolent British scroungers on their couches drinking beer and watching TV".

    Such comments are not only offensive, but also factually incorrect, since levels of unemployment and welfare dependency are actually much higher in certain immigrant communities. According to the Office of National Statistics, 35 per cent of Muslim households have no adult in employment, more than twice the national average, though no liberal columnist would dream of ever writing about "Muslim scroungers".

    The growing ostracism of the white working class is highlighted in a report out today by the Tory party's Social Justice Policy Group, chaired by the former leader Iain Duncan Smith. In his report, Duncan Smith warns that white pupils from poor backgrounds are performing worse at schools than any other ethnic group. He fears that there is a danger of creating "an uneducated and unemployable underclass of forgotten children".

    On top of the crisis in education, white workers are also confronted with economic difficulties, since they are disproportionately employed in the declining manufacturing industries, while in the services sector their wages are under pressure because of mass immigration. Yet, instead of having their plight recognised, they are condemned by the nanny-employing classes for their insular racism and reluctance to struggle on minimal pay.

    If the experience of poor urban whites were happening to other groups, there would be an outcry, followed by official inquiries, commissions, reports, and positive action plans. But nothing of the sort will occur. The entire thrust of the state machine is to address the needs of ethnic minorities, not the hard-pressed indigenous population.
    I notice things are changing, I'm seeing many of these articles now in papers that i'd never expect anything so honest and pertinent would be written. I'm impressed.

    Re: In defence of the white working class

    I don't have any sympathy for the (lower) working class where I live. Saying that their jobs are all taken by immigrants is just a piss poor attempt at justifying their pathetic behaviour. In fact, I'd go as far as saying many of the scallies around here behave worse than the actual immigrants. It's hard to put into words the disgust I feel when I see tracksuit-wearing 13 year old chavs roaming the city streets at night, drinking alcohol, smoking, and looking for trouble. Sometimes I really think the country would be a whole lot better off if they were just put into gas wagons and exterminated. At the very least make them join the army for a few years. They don't do ANYTHING positive for the country, yet I get taxed a fifth of my wages to support these animals. Boo-hoo, they're so vulnerable!

    Maybe they're a yobbo strand. I know loads of Working class people, and they are just normal folk, who speak more often than not less articulately, and with less income.
    I do know of the kind you are talking of, but they don't seem common in South England.

    I can't speak for the situation in England, but in South Wales they are everywhere. They are completely and utterly absent of morals. I have worked with them before. I once felt physically ill for nearly a week after a 16 year old co-worker told me she fell pregnant because she would get free council housing and benefits for the rest of her life. Their women grow up to be chain smoking, lager drinking slags, and the men usually become violent, unpredictable drug-using criminals. Not only that, but they are breeding uncontrollably, often race-mixing in the process. I view them as unfit for life in the 21st century, these people are on the same level as the 'thug-life' blacks in America's ghettos.

    They sound like the kind of people who should be bribed into having themselves sterilized. It would be cheaper then providing them with lifetime benefits.

    Re: In defence of the white working class

    This thread should be about positivity.
    Yes, on the one hand, there is a noticeable sub-strand within the working class that may aswell be as foreign and threatening an element to our way of life as any ethnic immigrant, they are disaffected/ill-educated and largely a product of Liberalism/Multiculturalism I would assert.

    Equally destructive, is the element within the Middle Class whom promote Multiculturalism in Working class areas, yet live in safe suburbia in their crime-free homogenous neighbourhoods .

    More than likely, those effected most heavily by Multiculturalism are the white working classes, something this article asserts and defends. I myself am from a Middle Class background, parents both born Working class. But the town as a whole, isn't middle-class and so I have spent my life socialising between the Working/Middle classes.

    The very undesireable element within the Working Class, whatever we call them, would be sorted with an end to the welfare state, with national service, with discipline and morals instilled from a young age.

    Re: In defence of the white working class

    There are decent working class people and there are scumbags. To a large extent, the problem is a lack of education and a lack of guidance from the state. The only solution to the yob problem is to bring back national service and corporal punishment. Physical pain and hardship is an effective medicine for the evils of a dysfunctional society, of this I am firmly convinced.

    I must say I agree with you, the thread should be positive, in your country and mine it is the white working class, that shows the most noblility and keeps the country and economy going, it is only that very small number of druggies, and lower tramps that give guys like us a bad name
