The Redneck Manifesto



The Redneck Manifesto Culture maverick Jim Goad presents a thoroughly reasoned, darkly funny, and rampagingly angry defense of America s most maligned social group the cultural clan variously referred to as rednecks, hillbillies, white trash, crackers, and trailer trash As The Redneck Manifesto boldly 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 than does racism With an unmatched ability for rubbing salt in cultural wounds, Jim Goad deftly dismantles most popular American notions about race and culture and takes a sledgehammer to our delicate glass blown popular conceptions of government, religion, media, and history.

    This is one of my favorite and most lent out books It s a very brash, no punches pulled look at race and class issues in America As someone who has zero interest in political correctness, and in fact feels it s one of the main reasons this country is going to shit, I share many if not all of Goads opinions However, if you can t handle offensive language and a completely fearless and maybe tastless inspection of these delicate issues, you might not want to sully your virgin eyes.If you can h This is one of my favorite and most lent out books It s a very brash, no punches pulled look at race and class issues in America As someone who has zero interest in political correctness, and in fact feels it s one of the main reasons this country is going to shit, I share many if not all of Goads opinions However, if you can t handle offensive language and a completely fearless and maybe tastless inspection of...

    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 sorts.God, 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 compare contrast essay on the beautiful lawns of the nicer neighborhoods where he grew up, compared with the squalor of his own ho 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 sorts.God, 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 compare contrast essay on the beautiful lawns of the nicer neighborhoods where he grew up, compared with the squalor of his own home.Also, he borrows an argument from Engels that the lower classes enjoy monster truck rallies and professional wrestling because it is an extreme diversion, something jolting to get them out of their dead end lives Personally, I thought...

    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 esque social criticism which examines the plight of working whites Although few would take seriously the concept of white plight, in Goad s eyes privileged white...

    The Redneck Manifesto is a rant The sort of rant you might hear at any number of grimy dive bars across the country on any given night A rant that is, unquestionably, entirelyentertaining and slick that you would hear at those dive bars It s even a rant with endnotes But if it s an intelligent rant, it s not an accurate one, endnotes notwithstanding.Jim Goad is angry, and if you re a hillbilly, hick, redneck, or white trash of any variety a bit broad there, but we ll return to that h The Redneck Manifesto is a rant The sort of rant you might hear at any number of grimy dive bars across the country on any given night A rant that is, unquestionably, entirelyentertaining and slick that you would hear at those dive bars It s even a rant with endnotes But if it s an intelligent rant, it s not an accurate one, endnotes notwithstanding.Jim Goad is angry, and if you re a hillbilly, hick, redneck, or white trash of any variety a bit broad there, but we ll return to that he s angry on your behalf And he s got a point in there somewhere White and black men are muchlikely to mingle in a factory than a white shoe law firm, in a dive bar than a martini bar, and in a trailer park than a gated community Life as an indentured servant wasthan a little hard the early, historical portions of the book are easily its best We really should have been a bitworried in the 90s about foreign, Arabic terrorists.Well, yes But American, white te...

    Parts of the book were really good Goad is convincing on the class contempt the richer save for the poorer, and on how the white working class is the only group in US society one can publicly look down upon in fine company The first part, about white slavery perhaps under another word, but slavery nonetheless , is sad and every bit as infuriating as other tales on slavery And it might be a story which could be toldoften I for one had heard about it, but never much, and never so syst Parts of the book were really good Goad is convincing on the class contempt the richer save for the poorer, and on how the white working class is the only group in US socie...

    The Redneck Manifesto is a flawed classic a case of a brilliant idea running out ahead of a book weighed down by the author s own frenetic style and tackled at the five yard line by error It s a book everyone should read, and no one should get their hopes up about Goad s aim is to make a case for the redneck , by which he means poor and working class whites While the book s title might suggest to some that it is a racist screed, it is, in fact, exactly the opposite In taking the right th The Redneck Manifesto is a flawed classic a case of a brilliant idea running out ahead of a book weighed down by the author s own frenetic style and tackled at the five yard line by error It s a book everyone should read, and no one should get their hopes up about Goad s aim is to make a case for the redneck , by which he means poor and working class whites While the book s title might suggest to some that it is a racist screed, it is, in f...
