Tackies Mudsills Scalawags Briar hoppers Hillbillies Low downers White niggers Degenerates White trash Rednecks Trailer trash Swamp people My mom was always rather class conscious I d make a new friend at school and the first thing my mother would do was go through my new friend s family history with me When I started chasing after girls based on how long their legs were or how pretty their eyes were my mother was always uick to inform me if they were really worth my time She saw every girlfriend as a potential daughter in law I remember with one brown eyed girl that I thought was the prettiest doe I d ever seen my mother informed me in a voice of doom that she wasCatholic I couldn t have cared less if she were a Martian My mother cackled when she found out I was taking a girl from a well to do family to prom She told me that they would never see me as good enough for their daughter All of this was rather baffling to me After reading this book I started to really think about how class conscious my mother was Of course when I asked a girl to go to the movies or to go for a ride in my car I wasn t thinking of her as my future wife I was just enjoying her company and plotting how best I could steal a kiss My family was never what I would call elevated The differences between us and most other people could be measured in hair breadth differences We were landowning Protestants and my mother s family were also landowning Protestants so that lifted us up to a rung that gave us a thin demarcation line from those who worked for other people My mother was never malicious about being class conscious in fact she regularly helped anyone who needed it She was definitely someone who would give a person the shirt off her back regardless of where they fell in the hierarchy of life but she wanted her sons to find good wives and finding one in her opinion from a similar position in life would insure a better chance for success The story of America is the story of the poor Convict labor the disadvantaged and slaves built America The poor fought our wars The exemptions for the sons of planters in the South and the ability for those of means in the North to pay someone to take their place in the ranks of soldiers insured that a disproportion of the poor lost their lives for the cause whatever that cause turned out to be Nancy Isenberg teaches a class on the 400 year history of class in America As you read this book your opinion of Benjamin Franklin Thomas Jefferson Theodore Roosevelt Andrew Jackson and even Pocahontas will alter slightly Isenberg lifts every rock and reveals some beliefs of people we admire that do not fit the image we have of them Even though I knew about most of the circumstances she discusses she illuminates many aspects that I had no idea about For example young women were being sent over from England to Virginia in 1620 The transportation of female cargo would tye and roote the Planters myndes to Virginia by the bonds of wives and children Sexual satisfaction and heirs to provide for would make slothful men into productive colonists To defray their transportation costs the men were expected to trade 150 pounds of tobacco for each of these women Women are cargo Women have historically always been considered possessions and passed from father to husband to son but then that is another subject slightly outside the scope of this book What is of interest to the main subject is that they the powers that be perceived poor men as lazy and the only thing standing between them and success was being industrious Of course most of the success pours upwards very little of it stays with the sharecropper who is trying so hard to get ahead to experience some version of the American dream Thank goodness he is at least getting laid nowI was reading a book the other day about a young lieutenant who discovered that his unit being sent to war during WW2 was made up of mostly Southerners and few of them knew how to read This was in 1944 When I think of poor white trash my first vision is of a trailer park in Mississippi not that disadvantaged whites don t live everywhere in the United States but the stereotype still brings to mind a state South of the Mason Dixon line Getting those states to embrace the idea of education for all and recognizing the benefits of an educated population has always been a struggle Whenever a politician argues that we need to get rid of Federal guidelines and let the states control the direction of education for their residentsI shudder Of course there are advantages to keeping people minimally educated They are easier to manipulate and exploitPoliticians going back to the 1800s in America realized the importance of convincing poor whites to vote for them They might even play the fiddle and convort with them for an afternoon before returning to their mansions in the evenings Americans had a taste for what he called a democracy of manners which was not the same as real democracy He meant that voters accepted huge disparities in wealth but at the same time expected their elected leaders to cultivate the appearance of being no different than the rest of us A man who works on the presses at the company I am part owner of said to me that he was going to vote for Donald Trump because he identified with him than he did with Hillary Clinton Similar genitalia During the hotly contested BushKerry race most of the people who worked for me voted for Bush because they liked him better He was a guy they would feel comfortable having a beer with I even had one guy tell me that he liked Bush because he was a dummy like me What the hell Personally I prefer people in the White House a helluva lot smarter than me I understand there really isn t much separation between the parties these days but there is separation It is interesting to me that every 1%er I ve ever met is a tax expert They seem to know about taxes than about the businesses that fuel their livelihood They certainly know about taxes than they do about the people whose backs they make a living off of Interesting enough Trump s main support is coming from white people without a college degree I m surprised that Trump can even give a speech around that silver spoon fork knife and plate that he was born with filling his mouth The nugget that has emerged about him that most annoys me is that he hasn t paid federal income tax for possibly up to two decades I ve paid a pile of Federal income tax every year of my life since age 16 and state and local taxes as well Which leads me into another uote In 2009 the 1 percent paid 52 percent of their income in state and local taxes while the poorest 20 percent paid 109 percent States penalized the poor with impunity This is the American dream I m in the 28% tax bracket After deductions I think I come out somewhere around 17% of my income going for taxes How can it be possible that I pay a higher % in taxes than the very richest Americans How can the poorest 20% ever climb up another rung on the ladder if they are paying twice as much as the top 1% in state and local taxes This is a travesty I m hanging on to being middle class by my fingernails but I have nothing to complain about compared to the poorest 20% Needless to say this book will create a lot of discussion among those who read it The four hundred year history of this country exploiting and discriminating against the poor and manipulating them politically is lurid and made me at times feel ueasy There are some eye opening observations and the photographs scattered throughout the text help to provide a true visual element to support the research It made me reevaluate my own place in this universe I uestioned my own preconceived notions about who someone really is I can only hope that in the process this book has helped shake out the last vestiges of my own brainwashed ideas of class structure I have an

In All the King s Men Robert Penn s classic novel of American politics the protagonist is Willie Stark the demagogic and corrupt governor of an unnamed state Willie is based on Huey Long of Louisiana The tragedy of Willie and All the King s Men is an archetypal tragedy is that he started out as a good man He was a backcountry bumpkin who managed to rise out of poverty to become an idealistic young lawyer Willie runs for County Treasurer promising transparency and honesty He loses to the establishment candidate a man known for corruption and self dealing The man who beats Willie accepts a low bid to build a school taking a kickback as payment Willie s career takes off after an accident at the shoddily constructed school kills three kids Suddenly Willie the Incorruptible is a hot property A local Democratic faction decides to run him as a gubernatorial candidate Not because they want him to win but because they want Willie to split the rube vote so that their chosen candidate has a better shot In a brilliant scene Willie finds out that he s being used To everyone s surprise he lashes out He stands before a crowd dispensing with his prepared remarks and starts talking about his own hick upbringing It s a funny story he said Get ready to laugh Get ready to bust your sides for it is sure a funny story It s about a hick It s about a redneck like you all if you please Yeah like you He grew up like any other mother s son on the dirt roads and gully washes of a north state farm He knew all about being a hick He knew what it was to get up before day and get cow dung between his toes and feed and slop and milk before breakfast so he could set off by sunup to walk six miles to a one room slab sided schoolhouse He knew what it was to pay high taxes for that windy shack of a schoolhouse and those gully washed red clay roads to walk over or to break his wagon axle or string halt his mules on After giving his own background Willie gets to his passionate call for action He leaned at them and said Listen to me you hicks Listen here and lift up your eyes and look on the God s blessed and unflyblown truth If you ve got the brain of a sapsucker left and can recognize the truth when you see it This is the truth you are a hick and nobody ever helped a hick but the hick himselfI was thinking about this scene as I read Nancy Isenberg s timely new book White Trash The 400 Year Untold History of Class in America Because that s who her story is about The hicks Of course as Isenberg points out they have many other names Waste people Offscourings Lubbers Bogtrotters Rascals Rubbish Suatters Crackers Clay eaters Tackies Mudsills Scalawags Briar hoppers HillbilliesWhite trash Rednecks Trailer trash Swamp people Isenberg s purpose in writing White Trash is to puncture the myth of American euality the notion that we are a classless society all with the same opportunity for success as everybody else To do so she undertakes a reevaluation of American history through the prism of class specifically by highlighting the forgotten and impoverished Think of it as A Poor People s History of the United States In this way Isenberg also hopes to help us better appreciate the gnawing contradictions still present in modern American society Isenberg tries to cover a lot of ground in just 321 pages She starts with the early colonization of America with heavy emphasis on reframing the meanings of Plymouth and Jamestown and ends with Bill Clinton and Sarah Palin It s almost enough to give you whiplash White Trash works best when it coheres around a set piece event slowing things down with focus and detail The section on eugenics and on the US Supreme Court s opinion in Buck vs Bell is especially effective in this way So too is Isenberg s eye opening discussion on indentured servitude in early America White Trash is not what I d classify as popular history The topic is not conducive to a narrative approach and Isenberg does not try to force it into one Rather this is academic history Isenberg has a position to argue and she supports her thesis with a wide ranging survey of sources She does however make every attempt at accessibility This is not a book aimed solely at college professors Sure she spends a lot of time uoting from the now obscure 16th century writerpromoter Richard Hakluyt who foresaw America as a kind of penal colony or trash bin where the undesirables of England could be uarantined But she also delves into pop culture peering into the meaning behind Deliverance The Andy Griffith Show Elvis Presley and Bill Clinton s appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show This is not a perfect book At times I thought Isenberg oversold the conclusions to be drawn from the evidence Moving the spotlight from one group to another necessarily creates shadows In putting the poor front and center race becomes secondary There were moments when Isenberg came uncomfortably close to euating the experiences of poor whites with those of blacks Her proposition that the American Civil War was a class war is a huge stretch On some level all poverty is the same But the difference between the black poor and the white poor throughout history is massive Whites got called nasty names and were generally forgotten or ignored by the government Blacks on the other hand were statutorily and legislatively set apart as inferior beings their subordinate status written into the books of the law That s a big deal In any event Isenberg could have made it clearer that race and class are not a zero sum game The only people who want us to discuss either one or the other are the people protecting the status uo Pitting marginalized groups against each other is the easiest way to ensure nothing ever changesAnother oddity is a lack of poor white voices This is a volume filled with commentary on the poor but almost all of that commentary comes from elites We hear a lot about what Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson had to say about the lower classes We hear far less about the experience of poverty itself or how the poor defined themselves against the backdrop of the cosmos It s almost an act of meta condescension I understand that there is probably a dearth of primary accounts from early colonial suatters There s no excuse though when we get up to the Great Depression My final critiue is that White Trash goes to great lengths in describing how America thought about the poor It gives very little by way of explanation as to why the poor found themselves impoverished Isenberg details the physical ravages of poverty in the stunted jaundiced hook wormed straw haired forms of the backcountry poor She does not explain how they got to this point This leads to a ueasy and unspoken implication that maybe all the elitist critics were right Maybe the poor were a lower breed unable to rise from the muck Maybe they are lazy ingrown hicks This is nonsense of course The structural disadvantages faced by the poor were built into the American system from the beginning when democracy meant that everyone had a say as long as that person was a white landowning male Take for example the history of America s westward expansion which is also the history of public private corruption self dealing and trading on insider knowledge Many of the brave pioneers we still extol ended up as suatters on the land they secured at the risk of their lives They often lost everything to people who never risked than capital The losses suffered by the Indians belongs in a different category altogether The real winners of the west were the bankers and lawyers the investors and speculators and the crooked politicians who helped partition huge swaths of public land for the private benefit of the few Isenberg mentions some of these systemic issues but doesn t give them depth I think that s a shame because without them there is a lingering sense of otherness given to the poor a notion they chose their lot and were content to suffer it With that said Isenberg makes a powerful statement about giving poor whites their due not just historically but today The poor are blamed for living on bad land as though they had other choices From the beginning they have existed in the minds of rural or urban elites and the middle class as extrusions of the weedy unproductive soil They are depicted as slothful rootless vagrants physically scarred by their poverty The worst ate clay and turned yellow wallowed in mud and muck and their necks became burned by the hot sun Their poorly clothed poorly fed children generated what others believed to be a permanent and defective breedWe think of the left behind groups as extinct and the present as a time of advanced thought and sensibility But today s trailer trash are merely yesterday s vagrants on wheels an updated version of Okies in jalopies and Florida crackers in their cartsAny book that dares take on American foundational myths is bound to stir up passions That s especially true with class which along with race is a particularly sensitive issue White Trash might make you angry It might make a lot of people angry But it s going to make different people angry for different reasons Frankly this is a book I grappled with I even took down some notes as I read it as though I were having a dialogue I don t agree with all the conclusions That s nearly beside the point This is a discussion that needs to be had This is in fact an important book for understanding what is happening today all around us Reviewer s note I received a copy of White Trash from the
