    As someone who isn't too far removed from his Cracker roots I was hoping that this book would be a Fanfare for the Redneck Man of sortsGod was I disappointed Instead it's pretty clear that Goad is a self loathing Redneck and desperately wishes that he could be part of the bourgeois class he claims to despise If you think I'm lying check out his obsessive comparecontrast essay on the beautiful lawns of the nicer neighborhoods where he grew

The Redneck Manifesto How Hillbillies Hicks and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats

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 Rednecks of the world unite You have nothing to lose but your bills Jim Goad s The Redneck Manifesto is a raucous mixture of southern pride and Marx esue social criticism which examines the plight of working whites Although few would take seriously the concept of white plight in Goad s eyes privileged whites constitute a minority of American whites most are working class slobs like himself who have been treated as miserably throughout American history as any minority even slaves His aim is to expose anti prole bigotry by shock therapy if need be and demonstrate that America s big problems are rooted in class not ethnic tensionHis history might echo A People s History if Howard Zinn had focused on working whites and were give nto telling the reader to f off It is a history rooted in class conflict since time immemorial a wealthy few have kept most of the power in their hands and America is no different Though our national legend involves Pilgrims seeking liberty in the fact of the matter is that most whites who immigrated came against their wills they were the poor pushed off the fields scraped off the streets and shanghaied across the Atlantic to toil as indentured servants Volunteering or conscripting in the Revolution they died to help create a Constitution which had no place for them and the centuries of progress that followed brought only of the same The Civil War destroyed the economy of the south but did little to displace the power elite industrialism proved even lethal than the killing fields of Europe s Great War at least for Americans as thousands died every year from factory and mining accidents The rest of the century was no better homes were blown apart as companies tried to crack open the Appalachian mountains like a walnut with no mind given to the people who lived there and free trade agreements saw the disappearance of jobs which remained To add insult to injury institutions that persecuted blacks like slavery and Jim Crow laws were somehow blamed on the impoverished working class despite it being just as disenfranchised by local elites Documents like the 1901 Alabama Constitution remain eual opportunity oppressors of the working poor While the 20th century saw various populations gain media shielding and political protection the white working class remained a common horse to beat on a pleasure shared by both formerly marginalized minorities and the elite Against all this Goad doesn t call for sensitivity no self respecting working man would whine What he does want is for everyone to leave rednecks the hell alone Making fun of his kin on TV is one thing everybody likes their scapegoats What he has his sights on is excessive tax burdens let the government be paid for by people who receive the services or the propertied and the United States foreign policy which typically involves sending the sons and daughters of the poor to fight to fulfill the elite s ambitions War is the harvester of the home and nothing else In addition to calling for an end to death and taxes Goad celebrates the culture of the white working family with chapters given over to Playing Hard and even to Praying Hard despite Goad s firm belief that religion and politics are both full of it The Redneck Manifesto may have a serious intent but it s hard to take the delivery as such Goad is deliberately and enthusiastically vulgar employing racial slurs throughout to goad the reader hopefully forcing them to see redneck and hillbilly as pejoratives on the level as kike Chink and yea even the dreaded N word That s artistic license but his seemingly schizophrenic style alternating between informal if serious analysis and seemingly insane ranting throwing in nicknames for personalities and employing collouial spelling randomly can easily throw a reader off It s surely deliberate Goad s whole purpose in writing the book is defy conventional attitudes The Redneck Manifesto is a fascinating if problematic book it s not a perspective I m used to hearing Class is a taboo topic now relegated only to Marxists and few working men would give Marx s conflict theory of society a moment s consideration after a half century of being assured by the TV that in America we re all one big happy middle class family Good luck too finding the self described Marxist who would go anywhere near ethnic consciousness if they are white As a product of the white working class with a sympathy for Marxist social critiue I had a ball reading this even while wading through the eccentric treatment of the English tongue It s funny cringingly inappropriate and yet thoughtful at the same time a tirade with a point There s tremendous value in looking at an often ignored segment of the impoverished population but considering the abuse Goad hurls out readers other than southerners looking for a sympathetic voice of which Goad s is surely one might put it down earlyRelatedThe Renegade History of America Thaddaeus Russell
