my grandma coined the term "igloo trash," I posted it, now it's a meme. yays!
by the way, for the record this never had anything to do with inuits. in fact, it specifically refers to those who killed off the inuits so they could take over their igloos and drill their land full of oily holes.
My first and only encounter with the term was in a reader comment clearly intended to refer to Sarah Palin ("...bring McSame and igloo trash into the job especially after what George W. bush has done to our country"). If the term existed before that or if it was ever intended to slur an ethnic or economic group, I'm not aware of it. I assumed it was a play on trailer trash.
But I'm feeling a little of c_b's guilt now myself.
