When Did White Trash Become the New Normal?: A Southern Lady Asks the Impertinent Question based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I read this book expecting lighthearted and accessible sociology. Instead, I got one woman's screed against everyone who is not exactly like her. The author states that anyone who does not know the words to a particular Protestant hymn is probably white trash. Really?? While she makes some valid points, they don't make up for her small-mindedness masquerading as Southern gentility. If you think we should return to the most repressive aspects of the 1950's, or you feel women are too weak to open a car door, this is the book for you. Otherwise, save your money.
