This is one of my favorite and most lent out books It s a very brash no punches pulled look at race and class issues in America As someone who has zero interest in political correctness and in fact feels it s one of the main reasons this country is going to shit I share many if not all of Goads opinions However if you can t handle offensive language and a completely fearless and maybe tastless inspection of these delicate issues you might not want to sully your virgin eyesIf you can handle Goads way of expressing himself you will get your eyes opened to alot of things that only he has had the balls to say outloud

free read The Redneck Manifesto How Hillbillies Hicks and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats 106 Oldly points out and brilliantly demonstrates America's dirty little secret isn't racism but classism While pouncing incessantly on racial themes most major media are silent about America's widening class rifts a problem that negatively affects people of all colors tha. The Redneck Manifesto is a rant The sort of rant you might hear at any number of grimy dive bars across the country on any given night A rant that is unuestionably entirely entertaining and slick that you would hear at those dive bars It s even a rant with endnotes But if it s an intelligent rant it s not an accurate one endnotes notwithstandingJim Goad is angry and if you re a hillbilly hick redneck or white trash of any variety a bit broad there but we ll return to that he s angry on your behalf And he s got a point in there somewhere White and black men are much likely to mingle in a factory than a white shoe law firm in a dive bar than a martini bar and in a trailer park than a gated community Life as an indentured servant was than a little hard the early historical portions of the book are easily its best We really should have been a bit worried in the 90s about foreign Arabic terroristsWell yes But American white terrorists aren t any less nasty We would kindly ask people to not knock over our buildings and failing that not ask and not do it kindly The portion of his rant on tidewater cavaliers would have been considered roughly accurate had he written it a few decades ago but historiography marched on without Mr Goad and he would have benefited from picking up a newer bookTherein lies one of Mr Goad s primary problems He s always got a source ready at hand but by his standards it need merely be in support of his position Accuracy and intellectual honesty are optional at best Hence the bad history above And a ready willingness to uote Alexander Hamilton on guns that is strangely absent when it comes time to talk about banks Would I betray my hillbilly roots as high faluting to demand that if you use endnotes you not be completely full of BS And it s not a bad bibliography One can overlook a little A People s History of United States for some Mind of the South and Night Comes to the CumberlandsYou can t hardly rant without throwing your own biases in but I guess this is a rant too so I won t shed too many tears over pointing Mr Goad s biases out Mr Goad has a very specific view of what the very broad people he is talking about are and he ll fit them into that suare hole come heck or high water He thinks religion is silly so he just talks about Bigfoot and Elvis instead he s channeling his inner Marx here which is a bit bourgeois to tell the truth Well growing up in backwoods southern Appalachia we took religion REAL serious and hellfire and brimstone flew every Sunday Mr Goad Portland white trash that he is only has a passing familiarity with my people now doesn t he He commits that old sin of lumping us highland southerners with the lowland southerners and letting a bunch of people from Lord knows wherever take up cause with us while he s at it As anyone who has lived in both the highland and lowland South could tell you David Hackett Fischer was right They remain two very different places populated by two very different culturesAnd so Mr Goad s rant goes down the path of so many other lonely fools on barroom stools He can turn a phrase or two and hit a button yes but that son of a gun doesn t know his rear end from a hole in the ground

On school you are taught from many different perspectives But there is a certain perspective of a certain people they won t touch with a ten yard stick That s the perspective of the white working class Esspecially the American white working class First they were fucked when they arrived as serfs on American soil Then after they were freed their jobs were stolen by people that don t even wanted them And after that and after the civil war they were supposed to like the free black people while the former slave holders moved to areas without any freed slaves
