What’s the Matter with White People? Why We Long for a Golden Age That Never Was

Joan Walsh

For four decades, “other” people—including people of color, the LGBT community, feminists, immigrants and union members—have been blamed for the crumbling of America’s middle class. Right-wing culture warriors have used this idea to create “us” vs. “them” divisiveness in our country, and liberals have failed to counter it by making the case that we’re all in this together.

The new book by MSNBC political analyst and Salon columnist Joan Walsh explores in unflinching terms the roots and effects of scapegoat politics. Please join us Wednesday for a discussion and book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
