Shelley Capito Meet Joe Bageant

Morgan County, West Virginia’s own Joe Bageant has written a remarkable new book.

It’s called Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir.

His previous book was Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America’s Class War.

Bageant’s grandparents were subsistence farmers.

Spending at most $100 a year.

But in two generations, subsistence farmers were wiped out.

Replaced by a white underclass living in grinding poverty.

How did that happen?
