Thanks for all the input guys. I guess I should have mentioned the fact that i need to turn in a printout or copy of the ad with the paper, so online sources would be best.<br><br>And what I mean by the white trash stereotype is something along the lines of the white trash guy on The Simpsons. The idea of the assignment is to point out harmful stereotypes.<br><br>It occurs to me that the one thing that ties together all of our associations (or at least the one I'm after) is poverty. They're made fun of for living in low-rent housing, wearing old and work out clothes, speaking improper English, being lazy, and any other myriad items you can think of. <br><br>
Well I might not be of much help - Coming from a State that has NO trailer parks whatsoever, even those giant RC vans are rare. So I have no experience with white trash = trailer park kind of folks.<br><br>[color:blue]harmful stereotypes in the advertising media</font color=blue><br><br>Since I have no experience with white trash - Soooo what I know about white has to come from the media - this is the "Harmful" part.<br><br>White trash;<br>Poor = money<br>Poorly educated = dumb arses <br>Poor english and grammar skills = white mans ebonics <br>Babes are easy and the men are rednecks.<br><br>I know all of that through the media <-- isn't the media just great <br><br>
The thing is, everyone wants to equate being white trash with economic status. It has nothing to do with that. <br><br>There is plenty of rich white trash. It's a way of life, not a circumstance. <br><br>
LOL<br>We don't even use that phrase here "white trash" when describing a person.<br>We just go strait to the 4 letter variety which is more descriptive - "bumb" "prick" "arse" and so on and its bounded by no color <br><br>
