I’ve seen people eating fried green tomatoes out of a squalid trailer who keep their word and treat people with respect. Not all of such people are like that, but some. I’m sorry, but if you can’t do the same, you don’t even rate as trailer trash. Not even because you have a vocabulary or education or pronounce words correctly. Ghetto is ghetto, even in a tux or a ballroom gown.
