Why do people call them trailer trash?

So people who don't have enough money (or they have but choose to live like that) and they live in a trailer park, are they deserved to be called "trailer trash"? Or it's just one particular class of people, and other ones who just live in trailers are not called like that? 


What if a person looks normal, intelligent and has a job but still lives in a trailer, will he be called trailer trash anyway?

    I purchased my first home 14 months ago.

    It's a double-wide manufactured home, but I call it a trailer.

    I proudly announce myself as trailer trash now.

    Yes, according to the left, any and all that live in trailers are trash, they view them as the equivalent of the projects they put up in their cities.

    People seek to solidify their social status by ripping on those below them. It's nature.
