I used to look at people with the smugness you do until I began to get to know some of those people. I came to understand that most of these folks are actually warm, loving people who simply don’t give a fuck what they look like to others. They’re too busy keeping their lives together on their meager incomes. I remember as a kid growing up that we had the most fun at the house of a “white trash” family rather than the well-manicured homes of others in our school. The white trashers were always generous, would set an extra place at the table should someone be hungry — and the mother was THERE for us. I can’t say enough good things about white trash folks. They work hard and they play hard with what little money they have.
