Abstract
This site is designed to prove that working class whites are a societal scapegoat historically and particularly in the present day as seen in literature, comics, television and film. They are easy prey to discrimination because they have a value system that is separate from mainstream America, centered in the areas of race, religion, work and a non-progressive lifestyle.
