WASP stands for "White Anglo-Saxon Protestant," and is typically used to describe a person's ancestry. It is often seen online and in text messages when discussing racial issues.
The acronym is primarily used to describe white Americans who come from a privileged background. This background typically includes wealth, education, Protestant Christianity, and Northern European ancestry.
WASPs are seen as the most influential and powerful group of people in the United States of America. While it is not a negative term, it is often used as one to critique the uneven distribution of influence in the USA.
A region in the USA that is known for its density of WASPs is New England. This area includes Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
