      White Racism. The current President's rhetoric has appealed to white racists through many not-so-subtle attacks on immigrants, who have been depicted as an invading force taking away their jobs. Last year’s notable “twin books” were Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance and White Trash: the Secret Year History of Poverty in America by Nancy Isenberg. The first is a memoir and the second a volume of history, but both examine the plight of poor and working-class whites in America. Hillbilly Elegy has been on the NYT Bestseller list for

      The Invisible Poverty of ‘Poor White Trash’ He has also written four books, The Little Way of Ruthie Leming, Crunchy Cons, How Dante Can Save Your Life, and The Benedict Option. A poor black family, in short, is much more likely than a poor white one to live in a neighborhood where many other families are poor, too, creating what sociologists call the "double burden" of.

      There were indentured servants, African slaves, Native Americans, poor white yeoman farmers, and a wealthier landowning aristocracy. Some of the first colonies were owned by wealthy English barons (like the Lords Proprietors in Carolina) and after the Revolution, most states had property requirements that kept the poor whites from voting. After two years of interviewing more than black, Latino, and white undergraduates at an elite university, Jack came up with a new way to think about how factors like poverty and socioeconomic segregation — segregation by class — shape the way students experience college.

Sherwood Anderson paints a broad stroke with an economy of language when he describes the advent of America's Industrial Age and its impact on the Midwest in Poor White. As the brutish, muddy pastoral that births the protagonist Hugh McVey gives way to factories and modern towns, so too do we as readers witness the tragedy and.

POOR WHITE is another tale set in Ohio in a small town called Bidwell. The most fascinating thing about Anderson's writing is that it is so quiet. The story is simply told and yet there is.

After one reads McIntosh’s powerful essay, it’s impossible to deny that being born with white skin in America affords people certain unearned privileges in life.

Sherwood Anderson's novel Poor White () explored how a poor white youth from Missouri tried to adjust to a middle-class world by moving to the Midwest.

The American eugenics movement encouraged the legalization of forced sterilizations. When poor (or formerly poor) white folks do get portrayed in the media and pop culture, they're often reduced to a series of offensive stereotypes: that they're angry, lazy, dirty, overweight.

In White Trash, Nancy Isenberg upends assumptions about America's supposedly class-free society. Poor whites were central to the rise of the Republican Party in the early 19th century, and the Civil War itself was fought over class issues nearly as much as it was fought over slavery.

Two new books, “The System,” by the former labor secretary Robert B. Reich, and “Break ’Em Up,” by the lawyer and activist Zephyr Teachout, a onetime candidate for New York State. “I’m a professor who studies racism,” she says. “And I’m about to marry a white man who grew up poor.
