    1. You ve met Charlotte Hays before the spinster aunt at a wedding who thinks the bridesmaids outfits have too much d colletage and the bride probably has to get married your grandmother or great grandmother who thought that rock and roll was the devil s own music and that Elvis Presley would bring Armageddon with his pelvis the teacher who longs for the good old days when pregnant girls were kicked out of school, minority and special needs children were in their own schools, you could paddle or ex [...]


    2. In his A Study of History Arnold Toynbee remarks that a society is disintegrating when it takes its cues for manners and customs from the underclass From there Hays discusses the state of modern society where Toynbee s observation is certainly the case.Hays is from the South and delineates how what we were cultural dividing lines between decent peopel and white trash have been erased, and even so, white trash s have been adopted by decent people Topics covered include tattoos, lack of real reli [...]


    3. I got this book from the library because I thought it would be funny Some of it was, but mostly it was just condescending and judgmental, and sometimes downright mean Hays basic thesis is that we re on the road to downfall as a society because of decay in manners and morals I happen to agree with some of her ideas such as that people make themselves look worse rather than better when they cover their bodies with tattoos However, I don t see that as a sign of the apocalypse I also think children [...]


    4. Avery sad assessment of how far our society has fallen A world lacking in manners, beliefs, and most importantly common sense Oh and it is a rather funny book you will notice it is not POOR WHITE TRASH Income plays no part in the depths of trash behavior of a person.Warning if you have children and they have a stupidly spelled name or the name of a stripper, if the care about the Kardashian s, if you think everything children do is precious and that their opinions are important, if you would nev [...]


    5. This book, albeit very well written style wise, is full of clich s and very old, outdated social norms I was ridiculously offended on her rude, nasty behavior It was not humorous in the least and this is not how a Southern lady truly behaves she seems very hypocritical and is most assuredly not a gentlewoman extraordinaire Just because you don t follow her ideas of classy doesn t make you white trash I agree with her complaint of reality TV and those role models, but they don t necessarily defin [...]


    6. The one star rating is based on my own personal opinion, so please understand this is my judgement and my feelings This was not my kind of book I found the writing to be condescending and preachy I am born and raised in the South Mississippi , and I am a middle class mom and housewife I could not relate to the writer s style or her viewpoint.


    7. While I agreed with a couple aspects of the book, I found it to be very snobby It wasn t exactly what I was expecting, I thought it would be endearing and comical but it s really not.The author calls herself a Southern gentlewoman but the way she trashes other people suggest otherwise.I did like the remember when tidbits thrown in and I thought the time line at the end of the book was pretty neat I also found chapter 3, the one about money management and that to be refreshing and true The rest [...]


    8. Well Yikes I thought this was something totally different when I picked it up, so I was in for a huge treat when I started reading it Not funny, just offensive Didn t even finish it If I would ve looked at the back, Ann Coulter had a review for it, and said that This is a book that has needed to be written for a long time Should ve been my clue NOT to grab this book from the library.


    9. It may have you shaking your head at the elitist tone of some passages and nodding your head in agreement of others, but Ms Hays book has enough middle ground for all, even though it is written for the conservative reader.


    10. A bit irreverent, but overall pretty good I m hoping some of this was a sarcastic view I sure wouldn t want a stepford wife type society, but a lot of the things mentioned in this book are long lost unfortunately Everybody is out for there self ONLY, and its a bit sad.


    11. This book, albeit very well written style wise, is full of clich s and very old, outdated social norms I was ridiculously offended on her rude, nasty behavior It was not humorous in the least and this is not how a Southern lady truly behaves she seems very hypocritical and is most assuredly not a gentlewoman extraordinaire Just because you don t follow her ideas of classy doesn t make you white trash I agree with her complaint of reality TV and those role models, but they don t necessarily defin [...]


    12. I happened across this book in the library of a cruise ship, and it kind of sucked me in A lot of the things that gross out Hays disturb me a bit, too, but labeling changing social conventions white trash is jarringly harsh and offensive One thing that I absolutely disagree witih Hays about is that Amy Carter s reading a book at a state dinner was a sign of the decay of decorum in America.


    13. This book says it as it is This is America today The ones who give it a one star or disagree are the neo white trash Tattoos, cigarettes, littering, not able to control their screaming brats, barking dogs, lesbians kissing outside your window This is the norm in today s lame society This is my review, my freedom of speech and I speak the truth and I am not a hypocrite.


    14. I m not sure about getting this book, but the author s biting criticism is sure entertaining nypost 2013 11 02 when did seems like a tabloid ish paper


    15. Some books were recommended to me as being humorous southern reads, which I thought this one was included While I may agree with some of Miss Hays writing, the reality of reading this book was just deeply depressing I didn t enjoy this book at all and only finished because the thought of starting a book and not finishing completely unnerves me.


    16. I have all her other books and probably enjoyed them than this one Maybe it s my age Or the recipes But I decided I d leave this in my car for times when I m too early or stuck waiting somewhere It s perfect to read a chapter and laugh.



    17. I thought this was hysterical Surely, Ms Hays can t be serious when she goes on her rants raves and judgemental laments Like all good comics she makes some valid points and then goes off the deep end for comedic effect Writing was good, format was oddly cobbled together and disjointed Each chapter was began with a series of white trash menu items that had nothing to do with the chapter and she should have taken the time and effort to write laughs in to fully round out her old white trash vision [...]


    18. I started this book thinking it was going to just validate things I have been feeling for years Why are we trying to emulate the white trash way I skimmed the first 20 pages that went on and on about using the right silverware and covering up your tattoos But, then, looking through the recipe chapters, they are ALL white trash recipes You can t bash white trash then eat like white trash To quote another review, this read like one big long complaint.


    19. While I found the book to be well written, I also found it a little whiny The first chapter is all over the place complaining and making irrational claims I did enjoy the comparison to how society has change and the new norms that have emerged in the process There are some current pop culture facts that are not accurate For instance Kris Jenner is actually Kim s mother not stepfather.


    20. This one was a back and forth book for me I hated it, I liked it, it was okay, I liked it I don t think I d recommend it, but it had funny parts, especially the recipes We read it as a book club, so I have people to laugh about it with, otherwise I d probably give it 2 stars.



    21. Amusing and mostly accurate book about the state of our country The white trash image has been foisted on us via pop culture and has traveled upwards.
