I’m Not As Worried About The Illegal Immigrants As Much As I’m Worried About The White Trash Americans

You know who they are, they are the ones with the beat up cars with no license plate or probably insurance, smoking cigarettes in the face of their fourteen children of different ages (each fathered by a different father), leaving their Big Gulp in a parking space for you to run over, only to discover that it’s filled with cigarette butts from what would seem like a month but are really from three days in the back of their Ford Escort. They end their poor sentences (when they make complete ones) with prepositional phrases at the end, “I seen him yesterday at that place where you’re at.” Ugh, it sends a shudder down my spine. And in all their unkempt appearance and supposedly lack of funds they seem to manage to have their hair dyed and be on a cell phone. So when it comes to worrying about people who are sucking the system and my patience dry, I’ve found it’s much more about the white trash than it is the illegal immigrants. I’m not as worried about the illegal immigrants as much as I’m worried about the white trash Americans – Don’t Get Me Started!

I can feel you getting uncomfortable all ready. And guess what, I like it. That’s right, we need to realize that all these well to do white “Christian” people who want to get rid of anyone of color in this nation who have deluded themselves into believing that they built this country with their lily white hands need to start to turn the mirror onto their own race for a change. Between the lack of funding for schools and the popularity of American Idol becoming a “career choice,” all of us Americans are getting a little dumber each day and the really bad part is that we’re passing it down to our children. My parents wanted me to be a doctor or lawyer (come on, we’re Jews after all) but what aspirations do the white trash have for their kids? Sure some may put them in “beauty pageants” but that’ll only take them until twenty when I guess they expect them to marry or just have at least six kids by then. Can someone with no education and less drive and determination that a common garden slug really be a good parent? I think not.

So here we go, you knew I was going to get there. I saw a woman get out of her car (throwing litter about as she got out), the cigarette hanging from her mouth and a cell phone attached to her ear as she spewed obscenities to whoever was on the other end of the phone. Her six year old looking child got himself out of the passenger side of the car (right, the kid should have been in the back seat and in a proper seat) and closed the car with a “crunch” as the side of the car had been all plowed into at one point by the evidence of its appearance. As the kid went around the back of the car, almost into traffic, the mother started screaming obscenities to the child about being “f-ing stupid” for walking near traffic. And so I thought, “What kind of life does this child have or will he have as he grows?”

To all of the “Christians” out there who don’t think it’s a healthy environment for a child to be brought up in a home with parents of the same sex, I say get out more often and see what is really raising the next generation and you’ll be begging us gays to take the next generation and clean them up like we did your inner city neighborhoods. We cleaned up cities, creating jobs and increasing property values, what makes you think we’re not going to do that with our children?

Still, to some the real enemies are those Mexicans who come over the border and give birth thus giving birth to an American citizen. Most of these undocumented workers are at least working folks I can’t say the same for the white trash population. Sure, I think that if you work in America, live in America or buy in America you should pay taxes. But I can’t help but think that the politicians behind these immigration efforts are more about their own political gain and helping the white man feel as though there are still more of “us” than there are of “them.” Before we start trying to “clean the borders and their English up” I wish someone would spend a little more time cleaning up the white trash population that seems to be increasing daily. I get that condoms are expensive and another baby means more welfare. And why not have another Nathan Nascar Thompson Jr. to add to your collection of kids if it means more welfare? But at some point we’re going to have to take the education of these white trash kids more seriously and help them out of the scummy world their uneducated and toothless parents brought them into because if we don’t we’re doomed to have The Jerry Springer show become the Sixty Minutes of the next generation. Or has it all ready? I’m not as worried about the illegal immigrants as much as I’m worried about the white trash Americans – Don’t Get Me Started!

Please understand that not you are judging Christians the way the world judges you. Jesus loves you no matter what you do.

So much hate. I get your point though. But treating white trash the way some people treat gays isn't helpful (although it does make for a colorful rant---American Idol as a career choice, love it). Lots of people treat their children badly (screaming obscenities/ignoring them isn't a white trash only phenonmenon); lots of people treat their children well (it's not limited to wealthy whites).

It would seem education is key, but if America's economic underclass becomes educated, who will the mighty use for cannon fodder? Because, after American Idol, the next most obvious career choice is the military (they always seem to be hiring and it's one of the few options left with 'job security'---that's in quotes because of the whole "unless you die" thing). George Carlin really got it right on this one. Politicians are focusing their outrage on things like illegal immigrants because it touches on primal fears and distracts all eyes from the obvious---it's not in the interests of the politicians to have educated citizens. The more they can do to thwart that goal, the more they consolidate their power.

I love the description in the beginning, when you said "big gulp" I almost lost it. That was funny.

I think your view is a slight bit harsh but I agree with most of it.

To be fair, it does seem you are equating christians with white trash? I'm not a Christian but still think that is a bit of an unfair comparison to allude to the fact that they are all trash(although there are plenty of them)

LRC - Thanks for reading and commenting. To be clear, I was not saying all Christians are white trash, I was saying that they are the ones who think that gays shouldn't be raising children and a lot of other things. They stand in moral judgment of anyone who doesn't believe or behave exactly as they do and it's time they realize that there is more to the world than a white Christian and that it's okay for some of us to believe in other things, be different colors and still be decent productive members of society.

On a side note, what people who read my blogs need to realize is that sometimes, just sometimes, I'm being harsh or over the top to solicit a reaction out of you. Honestly, if I walked around with as much rage as is in my blog I'd have exploded long ago.;)

I know what you mean. Look into thine own eye to cast out the beam, before trying to eliminate someone else's.

I feel sorry for the kids, who have uncaring parents, or uneducated ones. They are the ones who suffer into the next generation.

Well I guess all we can hope for with the next generation coming up is that they see the way their "white trash parents" lived and would want better for themselves. I have a prime example of this first hand....ME! I have a mother who is just like this. Was verbally and mentally abusive and was just a welfare, child support junkie and an alcoholic and drug abuser. And you know what? I'm nothing like her thank goodness. I raised a newborn baby at the age of 7 (my youngest sister), would walk my mom home from the bar and would even get myself up and ready for school. I was left alone for the first time I can remember when I was 5. So it's not hopeless you see for the next generation, they just have to want better for themselves!

gqgirl - Well that's one way to make me shut my mouth and sit in awe. You have a book, movie for Lifetime and a whole afterschool coaching career in teaching others about your life experience. In all seriousness, thank you for sharing and congrats to you and that lucky sister of yours for having one another and finding your own way.

My ex brother-in-law expressed his opinions of cultural differences by assigning "culture kits" to segments of the American population. If a guy wore a tie and jacket, he was a "suit". If a truck had a gun rack in the back window (and especially an American flag decal on same), the driver was a "hick". My ex-bil had hair down to his waist, wore tie-died shirts all his life, and lived off the grid. He didn't mind classifying himself as an aged hippie. He'd help anyone, despite their culture kit or his, when they needed something.

Your point is well taken on all levels. People who live in glass houses have no business throwing stones.

My entire extended family is like this. I don't know how the Hell my mother escaped and managed to raise me by herself like a human child should be raised. She came from a family whose aspirations for her was only that she did not have children before she was married. For the boys the aspiration was that they graduate high school. Most failed on both accounts. Funny enough most of my extended family hated me... for a very simple reason, I succeeded where their feral children did not. I did not get knocked up in my teens (or later) and have only had one romantic relationship in my life which was stable, monogamous, and is still going strong despite our choice not to get married. Of course they blamed their distaste for me over the fact I was "worldly" and a sinner for not attending church. These are the same people who live two hours from Canada and are bitching about Mexicans. What?? The same people who bitch about the unjustness of a universal health plan - until they themselves get sick, then its a wonderful idea! As my mother always told me, "Its usually the loudest voices that are the most wrong." I don't know any gay couples... but I have watched way too many children popped out like Pez candies and then left to raise themselves. Surely two stable parents must be better than that. Rant aside I agree with you and laughed with your plucky writing style. Voted up!
