Shelley Capito Meet Joe BageantPosted: August 24, 2011
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.
