Is "White Trash" a racist term?

Ever use the term "white trash"?  Well you may not have realized that it's a racist term against not whites but blacks.

Let me explain.

Someone is white and they're trashy another word for low class. Why not just call them trash?

The racism comes in by adding "white" to the saying. You're not saying that all whites are trash, just this particular white person.

The implication is that white's aren't trashy but this white person is. Now you don't say "black trash" because ....

So, don't use the term and if you do use "trash" use it equally with whites and blacks.
