I’m sure you recall the long and nasty election season of 2016. Yeah the one in which Donald Trump shocked the world and got elected President of the United States. I immediately wanted to understand who in the world would vote for such a man. Living in diverse, affluent Arlington, VA I thought we represented the rest of America. Man was I wrong. So I picked up this book at Barnes and Noble and learned about people truly suffering in the industrial industry, coal industry, with VA affairs, etc. I also learned about what I suspected: racists and mysogynists making excuses about why they are or in total denial that they are. Still quite eye opening about the America that I actually live in versus the progressive one I imagined in my head.
