WASP is a term used in the United States derived from an acronym for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.
The term does not have a precise definition and can be used to describe greatly differing sociological groups. The WASP acronym originated in reference to White Americans with an "old money" background, who are alleged to form a powerful elite. Some may use the term to describe any white person who does not claim any minority affiliation, regardless of their socio-economic status or actual ancestry. However, working class whites in the U.S. are not usually referred to as WASPs, even if they are Protestants of Anglo-Saxon descent.
