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.[1] The WASP acronym originated in reference to White Americans with an "old money" background, who are alleged to form a powerful elite.[1] 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.[1] However, working class whites in the U.S. are not usually referred to as WASPs, even if they are Protestants of Anglo-Saxon descent.
