These are the places in California with the most drug-addicted, violent, welfare receiving populations in the Golden State.

This article is an opinion based on facts and is meant as infotainment. Don’t freak out.

Do you know anyone whom you’d refer to as Trashy? Most likely. Either there’s someone at your job, in your neighborhood, or in your family that you’d throw that label on.
Essentially, Trashy is everywhere.
While calling someone Trashy might be a mean-spirited way of ridiculing or poking fun at a particular demographic, it can also serve as a way to express disdain about the way someone lives their life. It isn’t as derogatory as using other racial slurs, and in fact, the term has a bit of humor associated with it, making it the focus of pop culture.
Take for instance Jerry Springer, Honey Boo Boo, Kid Rock, Eminem, Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite and even Cousin Eddie in National Lampoon movies.
According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, trashy is defined as:
“A term used broadly to define a person or group of persons whom embody the concepts of ignorance, racism, violence, alcoholism, poverty, and anglo-saxon ancestry. Similarly used with the term ‘cracker,’ ‘hillbilly’ or ‘redneck’.”
So, using some data crunching, we should be able to measure where the most Trashy communities in the state of California are actually located.
After pouring over data, watching too many fist fights and perusing illiterate Facebook comments, we’ve determined these are the most Trashy cities in California:

  1. Mendota (Photos)
  2. Red Bluff (Photos)
  3. Arvin (Photos)
  4. Madera (Photos)
  5. Grass Valley (Photos)
  6. Taft (Photos)
  7. Mcfarland
  8. Corning (Photos)
  9. Anderson
  10. Shafter (Photos)

Time to take some meth and stay up all night with us as we go through the cities one by one. And before you say we’re some kind of reverse racist, you can also check out the most Ghetto city in California.

How we determined the most trashy cities in California?

Using publicly available government data, as well as Google Maps, we were able to collect the data on the following trashy metrics:

  • Cities where there are lots of white people
  • Cities where residents are poorer than average
  • Cities where a high number of residents are high school dropouts
  • Cities with a high number of single parents
  • High drug use
  • Higher than average Payday Loan Outlets
  • Violent cities (measured in aggravated assaults)
  • Cities with a high number of residents on welfare

We used the government Census for most of the data. For drug use and violence, we used FBI data, and for Cash Advance Outlets, we used Google Maps.
Simple, right?
We limited the analysis to non-CDPs that have over 5,000 people.
Then, we ranked each place from 1 to 217 for each of the trashy criteria.
Next, then averaged all the ranks to create a “trashy index”.
In the end, Mendota ended up being the the most trashy city in the Golden State.

85 thoughts on “These Are The 10 Trashiest Cities In California

  1. If you making $10K a month working from home, what kinda meth you sellin’? And what white trash Cali city you live in?

  2. Well thanks for this Wonderful News of the city I live and work in. I have worked for the School District for 25 yrs. I have lived in Hemet for 28 yrs.
    My Husband has been here since 1963. This news just makes us feel all warm inside. (haha) Maybe its time for the City Officials to do something
    about all this Crime and Drugs and Homeless going on here. Please do not call us White Trash.

    1. I completely agree!!! Who are you to judge anyone and the situations they are in or how they got there! Shame on you and your trashy so called news!

      1. Denise, You need to know they used PROVEN data. Obviously, they hit you hard! Are you white trash? If so, time to de-litter your life. If not, then help those who are.

        1. Bill; They used no proven data!!! It is all made up!!! FAKE NEWS IN ACTION and you fell for it!!

    2. this article is kind of a slanted opinion honestly beth i think you should already know if your city is bad and dont need a misspelled article to make you feel scared this is what we call fear mongering and its bad you see it plays upon your fears so you pass legislation that usually creates more restrictions which is bad for people good for government are you following along with my point?

    3. Yup, it’s so annoying to be all lumped into one category of people. I’m a single mom, but I don’t do drugs. I have a four year college degree. I work. My son is on the honor roll. I’m not white, but no one likes to be put down and called names.

    1. Leave V.O.E. out of it. What happens in V.O.E.M.H.P. stays in V.O.E.M.H.P.! Lol Valley of Entrancement, Speeder Glen, and Blow Jay are all excellent places to live and/or raise young humans. Economically, there are pretty much only two levels of income on The Hill. Not everyone can be rich, weekending flatlanders (Flattenlandern). Save a squirrel, squish a Flatlander!

    2. I used to have a 40′ vacation trailer in Ohrmund’s Resort in Valley of Enchantment, and even in the 70s it was known as the armpit of the San Bernardino Mtns. Tweekers and pot heads just like in Lake Hughes in LA County.

  3. We have enough people that have moved here that have trashed our town and talked crap about it with their negative attitudes! We don’t need more people talking bad and destroying it more from people that have nothing better to do with their life! By the way my family does not fit anywhere in your “so called statistics” or analysis! I have been here since 77 and noticed allot of people move here and not care about their environment!

  4. There are several assessments on Hesperia that are incorrect and or lacking evidence. First, Hesperia is predominantly Hispanic. Second, its area code 760 not 909, it is not off the 215 it’s off the 15. If the high school drop out rate is 17% but schools are 63% Hispanic wouldn’t it be more likely that drop outs are more likely to be Hispanic and not in fact “white trash”? Mel

  5. Are you assuming single parents are trash? Are you assuming lower income people are trash? Are you generalizing? I will answer for you…yes, you are assuming and you are generalizing and your article is TRASH!

  6. I want to know where the writer this awesome article, went to school? Uneducated white trash population. All I read in the article was run on after run on!

  7. They forgot Niland California in Imperial County.yout wanna see some white trash look up slap city tweeter central, lol

  8. This article about white trash, I found quite comical, you really have no clue about anything do you? And I mean anything

  9. Thank you fabulously hilarious next to comedic genius. I love the borderline racial context white trash percentages I am a ginger so this is hereby non offensive. Bravo keep it up

  10. I lived in the Ozarks with my grandparents back in ’65, in a county that was the poorest in the State. The town, 10 miles from the Arkansas border, had a population of 1,200, and I can assure you that EVERYONE was white. Setting aside your so-called “statistics,” with their inane “operational definitions,” please be aware that those “hillbillies” were the finest group of people I had ever encountered, regardless of their net worth. White trash? You should be so lucky.
    Now, let’s see your in-depth study on the Muslims.

    1. I lived in the Ozarks in 1963 and 1964. On a Quaint resort it was called Cactus Point Resort. It was on the Horse shoe Bend. I have looked to try and find people that may have known about the family that I stayed with. They were the best family. MARY and Buck Gibbons. They had seven children. I lost touch with all of them years ago.
      Any chance that you ever heard of it? I was a teenager at that time. I went to High School there it was called Osage.
      I loved my life living there on the Lake. We worked hard all the time. But had lots of fun too! I helped my family build 13 cabins there on that land. I often wanted to go back there just to see what it is like now. But around 20 years ago I found someone that knew of the place and they told me that it was all gone. I was told that big business came in. And unfortunately had bought them out and put in sky Rise Apartment building. I was told that I would be very disappointed if I were to go back to see that place. Because I wouldn’t even recognize it.

    2. What’s the issue with Muslims? They are generally very family-oriented, hard-working, place a great deal of emphasis on education, and are extremely patriotic. I spent several years in Hamtramck, Michigan. I was the only white person on the street. I was welcomed with open arms. I have never seen so many American flags in people’s yards. I’ll take living in a majority Muslim community over a white trash community any day.

    1. Dawn Romona is a high school and area of Riverside city proper, as well as Canyon Crest another part of Riverside proper. Expand a map on Riverside city and you will see that. I know I lived there 26 years. No I don’t live there anymore, ha

  11. I’m a single, white mother of three beautiful husband after my husband passed away two years ago. I’m college educated, work full time but get food stamps to help out because I *still* don’t make enough at my job to fully get by and I live in a cheaper part of Riverside because no, I can’t afford to and don’t want to live in some upscale, snooty neighborhood. My current neighbors are GOOD people. The people I work with are GOOD people. The area in which I live is filled with GOOD people. The only thing wrong is the fact that someone shared this biased story on Facebook saying how horrible Riverside must be and decided to read it to find out why it’s so horrible here. Spoiler alert: It’s not. It’s actually pretty beautiful.

  12. Not one mention of Rubidoux? I’m disappointed! I guess that’s included in Riverside…Rubidoux is the most miserable excuse for a town that I have ever had the misfortune to have spent time.

  13. I love Lakeside! Have lived on and off in Lakeside for the past 50 years. Love the “hick town”. Lakeside is famous for their Rodeo’s and friendly folks.
    Every city has drug problems, homelessness, assaults, welfare free loaders, single parents.
    You need to come visit Lakeside, CA and meet the REAL friendly people in this hick town!

    1. It does seem like a lot of stereotypical ‘redneck’ communities have a major meth problem. I’ll take a whole apartment block of alcoholic, crackhead, heroin addicts in my neighborhood over a tweaked out redneck who hasn’t slept in a few days roaming the block.

  14. Hesperia IS NOT on the 215 OR the 15. It is on the 395. And why is nothing about SAN BERNARDINO, FONTANA or COLTON?

  15. Temecula? You’re out of your mind, it’s one of the most upscale cities in Riverside County, a sea of red tile roofs, a vibrant Wine Country and Oldtown. One of the lowest crime rates in the US.
    Obviously you’ve never been south of San Bernardino, which should have made your list, but didn’t. You blew it on this one!

  16. Very nice article and the hilarious comments were a huge huuge bonus, you truly succeeded to piss of the white trash. Congatulations!

    1. lol Right? I couldn’t get through the article fast enough because I knew the comments would be equally entertaining.

  17. White Trash is not limited to poor as your assessment seems to focus its attention on only the poor. Rich white trash live everywhere and yet you ignore them. They are in the news everyday and yet you ignore them. They are in the White House, the Senate, Congress, Supreme Court, Government, Law Enforcement, Military, Wall Street, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Ceo’s of Major Corporations, and yet You ignore them Just because they are Rich, does not make them better than poor white trash. In truth by the definition of White Trash that You provided the Rich White Trash embody all the concepts except poverty.
    According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, white trash is defined as:
    “A term used broadly to define a person or group of persons whom embody the concepts of ignorance, racism, violence, alcoholism, poverty, and anglo-saxon ancestry.

  18. This is why we can’t have nice things. Poor isn’t a character flaw. People are not “trash.” Having money is not virtuous. It does not mean you are good, educated, smart, nice, or hard working. What you have compiled is a list of cities that are the consequence of unregulated capitalism. White, Brown, Black, Red, or Yellow- these are the enemies they have created for you. When the only true enemy of We the People has one color, GREEN.

  19. To the person who posted this article, obviously you haven’t traveled to these places.. I lived in Livermore for 35+ years, and there is in NO WAY why this place should be considered. There’s far worse places in California that I’ve lived in, or visited that make Livermore look like Beverly Hills. Your statistical logic is really ridiculous..
    If you can’t give a far assessment of these issues including every race then what is your point.??
    Other than your obvious hatered of white people…..

  20. Sorry but the singling out of single mothers is offensive to me. Are they less of a person than a married couple? They get to be listed with white trash? Because they are a single mother, mom? tongue and cheek article is fine until you pick a segment of the population that is discriminated against for usually no fault of their own. They don’t get hired because they cannot be married to work and a decent mom at the same time. Of the ones that do get hired for minimum wage or just above, get shorted for overtime, get sexually harassed as a target for management because they stay quiet for fear of losing the job. Please rethink before you write another article degrading this part of our population. They need our support as most are left without support from the man, not getting child support and may noy have a job history due to raising children.

  21. It is more likely than not, that the term “WHITE TRASH” (which to a Caucasian is just as offensive, as say SELECT words are to other ethnicity) is what seems to be the main problem with this thread.
    When the topic of what the cities themselves had problems with was then, it did not seem to be an issue.
    No ETHINIC opinions need to be discussed, there are issues within ALL Ethnicities

  22. Walk into 98% of the homes and they are clean, sanitary and very comfortable. You will always have those whose homes look like the outside as well. That has nothing to do with welfare, pay day loans, religion, whiteness or economics.
    Many would rather work than be on welfare. Thank the remnants of Johnson’s War on Poverty that drove fathers away from families and many it impossible for people to even have a part time job without losing benefits. Thank the D.C. System that made it impossible for people to transition from welfare to work. There is a gap, ya know, when a person finds a job the family loses medical care and income as they transition from welfare to better paying work. Most of these folks don’t deserve the white trailer park trash label.
    They should be called SURVIVORS despite Government regulation, rules and policies. The Democratic plan all along has been to make people slaves to the government.

  23. Spot on. Hemet is the trashiest shit hole I’ve ever lived in, and I’ve lived in numerous trashy shit holes.

  24. The author sure talks some trash, like white trash. Communities and quality of life is more complex. I’ve lived for years in Hemet, Riverside and Santa Cruz (which the New York Times rated as the most desirable town to live in this week). Hemet has many solid neighborhoods, some of them mobile home parks where seniors live good, decent and save lives. Other than some smog, Riverside is a wonderful community, with several universities, a vibrant downtown, surrounded by mountains over 10,000′. The author is a bottom feeder and should aim for a higher calling than talking trash.

  25. First of all, if you look at the mans statistics, he gives a % of people that are “white trash” in a given city. He’s not saying everyone is a welfare receiving, single mother/father, meth addicted alcoholic that’s been arrested for aggravated assault. So quit trippin! If you’re crying about how nice your town is then you need to check yourself, and look around you. This man is on the money on all his cities. And there’s many others that could easily make this list. Why don’t you go to a nice city and take a look the way it is there? i.e. South Pasadena, Arcadia, La Canada (yes I lived in the S.G. valley for over 40 years) Due to a recent transfer I have the joy of living in Lakeside! Nothing like having a 7-11 on damn near every corner, with hideous tweaker bitches crawling all over the place. Not a single grass parkway, tumbleweeds and garbage line the streets here! So if your offended by this article, then you are guilty as charged!

  26. I am left to wonder what censure by progressives would erupt if black dominated metro areas were referred to as “black trash cities”?

  27. Livermore? Really? More Ph.D’s there than any city in the world. Oldest vineyards in the state. Check the property values-realtors refer to it as “Silicon Valley North”. Local community college and public transportation to world-recognized State colleges and Universities. Local Symphony, Shakespeare Company, Film Festival, Guitar Festival, etc. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia. Day trips to SF, Oakland, San Jose, Napa, Sierras. Oh yeah Oh yeah, it’s white trash you don’t want to go.

  28. Where’s Yuba City and or Marysville??
    Livermore should not be here. The area is far too expensive and has too many educated professionals. Tracy or Manteca should be here before Livermore.


  30. Now do an article using the term Yellow, Black or Brown trash.
    See where that gets you!

  31. what about sandberdodo its bankrupt , high welfare population high crime rate, i feel real safe here lol

  32. I live in Bakersfield and I completely agree – we are full of white trash. It used to be a nice little town but its become acceptable to be 14 and pregnant – and parents are applauding and celebrating it like “Hey girl – you done good!” Let’s throw a BBQ and teach you how to fill out your welfare papers!! Every other corner is either a payday loan business or a “Medicinal” marijuana facility. One more year and I can leave this hell hole.

  33. Cute. And if anyone did this for blacks or hispanics, people would be yelling racism so fast our ears would explode.

  34. NIKO JAMISON What Trashy place you from looks like you look at one area in the place and call it white trash. Quit being racist about white people just as many other races do drugs and crime. Try beautifying not destroying.

  35. This guy is obviously a racist piece of shit. I dare you to swap it out for the n word… It’s ok it’s only satire right !!???

  36. I hope you learn a valuable lesson … Before you get handed your walking papers…you can joke and be racist too… and you are part of why it exists….

  37. I don’t jump on the bandwagon that stereotypes and humiliates people because they are poor.
    Poor White people do that to people of color , and White people who are middle class and higher do it to poor Whites. The truth is there are real reasons that a person’s life may be chaos. It’s not necessarily about their character or their culture.

  38. “White Trash Cities”! Really! That’s as racist as it gets! I’m offended!! What do you think the outcry would be if the headline read Black Trash Cities? or Black ghetto cities?

  39. I think its funny how when Ridgecrest was listed, ut gave an image of a jacked up street and the funny thing is that street doesnt exist there!! I spent 30 years there and there arent any streets that are like that. People will be good or bad and it doesnt depend on race, location or money. Its about choices. There are people with loads of cash a,d they are trashy people. On the flip side, there are people that are basically broke and they are the most generous people out there. Wrong to classify people based on region. Thats equivalent to saying “everyone in Iraq or Iran is a terrorist”. Please stop acting and writing out in hate. If you wanna see a change, take a look at yourself first and then help others. And not in hatred, but with the desire to help. Once more, its not about you.

  40. So you are calling a town that houses the military personnel and DoD employees and those in the town that own the businesses and working within the town, a white trash town? No city is perfect and i can tell you that Ridgecrest is NOT a white trash town. With almost 29,000 people living and working within the city and on the base and having a median income for a household in the city was $44,971, and the median income for a family was $52,725. Males had a median income of $46,993 versus $29,558 for females. The per capita income for the city was $21,312. About 10.2% of families and 12.3% of the population were below the poverty line, including 17.5% of those under age 18 and 5.1% of those age 65 or over.
    Crime index: 40.0% safe city
    High school or higher: 87.4%
    Bachelor’s degree or higher: 24.4%
    Graduate or professional degree: 8.5%
    Unemployed: 6.8%
    So instead of spreading rumors and other lies to make a name for yourself and you blog, check the damned facts. I know for a fact that at least 20,000 of those people and that includes the military personnel would love to show you “around”.

  41. White trash I guess the person that wrote this article lives in a cave due to all cities have there issue. But if it wasn’t for the Stockton area you racist wouldn’t have food!!

  42. You must be proud of yourself making money publicising about the less fortunate. You are a sad small person diminishing cities filled with hard working people scraping by. Carma will find you it always does.

  43. So where is the equal opportunity posting highlighting the 10 worst PJ infested ghettos in California… an since California is actually Mexifornia, the 10 worst barrio bajos in Mexifornia. Clearly, this article was written by a racist punk.

  44. Word usage is an author’s trick to catch the attention of its readers. Would the same article catch your attention if it didn’t contain the words “White trash”? Or would the location of the details change? I’m not commenting on the content of the article itself but I gotta say… I’m not surprised by the reaction of the readers. My, I am appalled by how quick we are to want to defend or debate the grammatical effects; I applaud the few that did actually notice the actual message to the article.

  45. Maybe you used some data but you seemed to not include other facts. I live in lakeside. It may not be San Diego but you know what? I lived in SD for 4 years and didn’t even know my neigbors. Everything costs more than it should and everyone is self absorbed. Here there are quite a few families with disabled children and a lot of those families are indeed on welfare. Do you know why? Because these kids need full time care. How many jobs do you know of that will keep you when you need to leave when ever a therapist needs to change the time or you have to change a colostomy bag? I am one of these “parasites”. I have two boys on the spectrum. I do therapy with them five days a week. I went to college and mastered in psychology. My neighbors bring me groceries and homemade tamales. They help me when my child is having a meltdown on the sidewalk so he doesn’t get hurt. We say hi to eachother and help eachother. If my neighborhood is white trash than I’m glad. Because I love it here I love my neighbors. You should be ashamed for writing such a judgmental article about people when you have no idea what your talking about.

  46. No Ventura is the absolute worst!! I went there and had people tell me to keep my mouth shut about what’s going on there. There were two women who got brutally raped my two men and then the men killed both of them.
    When your waiting for you bus to arrive they absolutely take their sweet ass time making you wait 4 hrs, then when you ask the Greyhound dudes for help they laugh in your face. The meth heads are really bad here, and the cops don’t seem to wanna do their fucking job and not only that I’m almost positive that the Ventura bus stop is a giant meth lab and the Mexicans are dealing the drugs there. So just keep the hell away from here unless you want a death wish from these psyco meth heads and sketcy ass people. This should be labeled the worst place ever in Cali. Will never come back!!!!!

  47. Mendota is 96.6% Hispanic. The idiot author doesn’t understand the difference between people of European decent and Hispanic decent. Both can claim to be white, but there is a big difference (think Finland vs El Salvador). There are literally just a few Europeans living in the shit-holes he referenced, they are not 80%+ white, they are almost exclusively Hispanic.
    The 2010 United States Census[14] reported that Mendota had a population of 11,014. The population density was 3,356.3 people per square mile (1,295.9/km²). The racial makeup of Mendota was 5,823 (52.9%) White, 107 (1.0%) African American, 153 (1.4%) Native American, 82 (0.7%) Asian, 5 (0.0%) Pacific Islander, 4,465 (40.5%) from other races, and 379 (3.4%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 10,643 persons (96.6%).

  48. White people get so triggered when others point out their flaws. I’m LMFAO at the defensive comments. The article is obviously satire but you idiots cannot see that.

  49. i wanna live in a city ware peoples plays thare bass the loddest i am a bass addic and needs to feal bass all the time is thare a citythat got itspeople playing lodd bass all the time I wanna no cause ware i live only a few dudes got nice thump i wanna here it all ttime im thinkin someware in la is cool cause the wather is nice

  50. If you look at who’s been apprehended for burglaries, robberies, murders and muggings it’s RARELY “white trash” that commits MOST of these crimes. Since California is a sanctuary state thanks to Gov. Gavin Nonsense, the high influx of illegals getting into Califonia has significantly increased violent crimes. And with proposition 47 voted in it allowed the purging of Califonia prisons and plenty of felonious vermin to be set free. California is quickly going down the sewer one flush at a time. Except in San Francisco all the waste collects in plain view on the curbside!
