This book both pissed me off and made me more sympathetic to the plight of the South. But the gist of it is that there is a loss of honor and white people in the south feel like they have to wait in line for the American Dream and that line is getting longer with the federal government there to help everyone but them. They believe the Obamas cut in line, that business should be fully trusted, and paradoxically they want to cut more from federal government while still benefiting from it.
