I live in a diverse neighborhood, we are all probably below poverty level, why are poor whites only called trash?



Because it's politically incorrect to call any others besides whites derogatory terms.

Because other white people who somehow think themselves of higher station or are morally(cough, cough) superior harbor the notion that those white trash should know better than to sink to the level that they perceive them to be in.

Its a bit of racism toward your own race mixed with a health sprinkling of classicism and ignorance.
.


Funny...whether you intentionally meant it or not. If I had a dollar for every time that I have seen a minority use the term white trash on message boards or social media over the last decade I would be a very rich man.

Hey if you cannot laugh at this world and the crap we put stock in and value so much, you really cannot laugh at all.


Truth be told we should all be on our hands and knees weeping at the fact that we seem doomed to repeat our past mistakes and transgression and refuse to learn for history.

Ooo how clever!

If you vote for Trump you are nothing but trash.

I see what you did there. Shear genius I never would have caught on. Now I have no choice but to vote Democratic. I'm so shamed.

Amen, because we don't know the history, maybe they should tell the history of the terms used,

Apparently Hitler won.

I dont like Trump but on the flip side of the above a vote for Hillary will also land the nation in a heap load of rubbish.

It a darned if you do, darned if you don't scenario if ever there was one.


Said it before and i will again, its the two party system and the candidates put forward for office that's the problem!

Well that's it, our respective grand parents fought in wars to secure our future and make sure fascism and totalitarian forms of government were vanquished.

Truth is everything they fought to prevent has come to pass, or is about to.

Not to ruffle any feathers here, but there is a difference between those who have diplomas, and those who are highly intellectual. While I will grant you that intellectual persons do get diplomas, there are some total idiots out there who also possess degrees. There are some people out there who have forgotten more about the world than some folk who have diplomas will ever learn.

Takeaway should be, diploma possession is not ACTUALLY possession of more or less intellect than someone who has no diploma. It is merely proof that one has applied oneself to learning in a given field, to a certain standard.

I can see the day when the last white person dies, the World will be filled with despotic leaders like Mugabe and poverty will be the mainstay. No more hand outs and no more technology, then after the darker races settle all their scores they will sit back and long for the good old days when the food come to them.


OMG. You are not only racist, you are the most racist person to ever type.

Don't confuse the truth with racism, I can and will be proud of my White Ancestry and its achievements.

Hmm, I kind of embrace my redneck heritage. In my mind it means we take care of our own, family, friends, and neighbors.

Do we look at others and say they are white trash, yeah we do. Even among rednecks, you will find liberals and conservatives, politics is not important, family, friends and neighbors are.

Rednecks pretty much don't care about the color of a persons skin, or their ethnicity or their religion. We care about the character of the individual. Rednecks are probably the original Libertarians.

Case in point, Central Florida, 2004, we had three hurricanes in 6 weeks, I lived in a rural area, we were all helping each other, while those in Orlando were crying that the government was not doing enough for them.

For what is coming in the future, I truly suggest you find a redneck friend, they are semi skilled in multiple tasks, they can grow stuff, know how to clean fish, and skin game, they truly might save your life.

I have never seen redneck as a detriment in any way.

Intelligence for me isn't just regurgitating "Parrot Fashion" what a book says, its being able to determine and figure complex scenario's out yourself. This would include theory and practice which most "Degree'd Types" have very little of the latter.

Such begins an article published only yesterday by one, and only, Kyle Smith of the New York Post.

Well, to begin, this story does one thing and one thing only for me. It makes me mad. That the NYPost would publish something so blatantly racist is not the most surprising thing, no. To me it's that in this racist BLM-sponsoring MSM day in age, they also ACTIVELY tell WHITES they are bad, or trashy. We are busing INUNDATED with constant streams of anti-white culture and anti-white media non-stop throughout our day.

Wanna check Yahoo! to see if some funny animal video is worth wathcing, except blatant anti-white stories.

Flipping through channels on the telly? You just KNOW you're going to have to flip quickly so your children don't have to see some anti-white speaker from the DNC.

Oh, the children. Don't bother sending them to school unless you want them to be actively taught about how unbelievably bad they should feel to this day for being white and putting those lazy slaves to work.

I'm really getting pretty darned tired of saying this, [rolls eyes] If the roles were reversed, this wouldn't even make it to the editors desk. It's open-effing season on white people and I'm getting very defensive.

If this is what our world is coming to I should just go bush.

What do you think ATS, should I go bush? Wanna come?



I won't come with you because I don't know you, but I think it's in your best interest to do it. I relocated to a different state in a more rural area. My life has already improved in so many ways. I spend my free time shooting and trekking around on foot getting to know the environment, what it has to offer, and my abilities within it. I have dramatically increased my fitness level and my endurance. I talk openly and honestly about the situation (but not obsessively) with anyone who seems receptive, and it's almost scary how many people are receptive. I've learned a lot, but what I learned most was how much more is left to do.

Plan, practice, and be ready. There won't be any single point that stands out as being when "it" happened, it will be a slow process before everyone realizes what has happened. It's not about race, or gender, or money, it's about control. They want to have it over you. Refuse.

Can you hunt, can you fish, do your own electrical work, your own plumbing, grow a garden, preserve what you grow?


I have more questions, but when you are concerned about your fitness level and endurance, I question whether you truly are working on skills to survive.

Based on your rant, if you go bush, you and your entire family will perish. Based on what you have posted here, I have serious doubts that you would survive 30 days, I may be wrong, you might be prepped, but I have my doubts beyond what supplies you have collected.

How true! We'll see which groups are more passionate about their candidate, and gets out to vote on November 8th. If crowds are any indication, Trump has this election sewed up! Particularly if the weather is bad in certain states.

Trump has a serious Electorial College problem, but guess we can deal with that on the 9th. Keep living your dreams

I can't build a power station but my hobbies from a young age have included working with both AC and DC power system. I'm quite familiar with them (both in practice and in principle) and have built more than a few scrapped together generation and storage devices.

I am not nearly as knowledgeable when it comes to agriculture as I'd like to be, but I'll just be honest about this one, I've grown medical herbs in the past (legally in the state at the time) which, to grow right, is a lot more difficult than growing food crops, which I've also grown in a backyard plot. Agriculture requires a fixed location and security and this isn't something I'm convinced will be available. I've focused more on foraging, which I'm getting quite good at.

I've not hunted big game, but am a good varmit hunter. I see a lot more varmits around than big game, and I suspect that trend would intensify if anything were to happen. I know how to catch fish. A lot of fish. It's just not legal. A fishing rod is a poor way to get a fish. That's all I'm going to say.

Plumbing? What about gas? I've installed two hot water heaters and more toilets than I can remember. I've done the plumbing for sinks during a kitchen remodel. It all still works today. My last hot water install was checked over by an inspector before the house was sold, no issues.

Preservation? Absolutely. I brew beer, make sauerkraut, berry and fruit preserves, pickles, make cheese, and cure meat. That's as far as my hands-on experience goes but that knowledge can be applied to plenty of other foods.

I can fix cars too, the older the better. Not sure how many people will be driving though. Eventually I'd like to relocate to the coast (I'm in the Pacific NW) for a steady supply of salt

To specify, I'm not preparing to be transported through time to the stone age or disappear into the wilderness. I'm planning on a slow decay of society, and how to make myself more resilient in the face of it. I'd humbly suggest you don't assume everyone is as ignorant as your average American. To get ahead you don't have to know everything, just know more than most the people around you.
