"Every day across the U.S., 66 million poor white people pay the price for failing whiteness. In this sweeping debut, activist and chaplain Cedar Monroe introduces us to the poor and unhoused of a small town in Washington, who grapple with desperation, a collapsing economy, and their own racism.

I tried to get into this book, but ended putting it down. ( )

I received this book for free from the Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review. Trash is the story of Cedar Monroe, and their journey from childhood in a poor community in Washington state that has now lost its main source of jobs. Cedar returned to this community as a chaplain, in an effort to both minister to and organize the community to combat poverty. Monroe’s thesis is that poverty can be overcome if poor whites join with people of color to change the driving forces of capitalism and white supremacy in American society. There are numerous statistics and vignettes that resonate, but this book would benefit from more concrete suggestions for change. Still, a relatively short, accessible, read that may be good for those new to these topics. ( )

I am writing this as a placeholder for the fuller review that I plan to provide. I've been deluged with things to read and have had to put this one on the back burner, but it does seem like a book that takes an interesting angle on the subject of poverty and one that is written in a way that I am likely to find compelling.

I received a copy of this book from LT's Early Reviewer program.

Monroe grew up poor in the Pacific Northwest and after finishing at an Episcopal seminary in Boston, they returned to their home and served as a chaplain to the unhoused population occupying land along the river in Aberdeen, Washington. This book, while repetitive in places, is an important look at the intersection of race, ethnicity, powerlessness, unfettered capitalism, and how people living in poverty or on the edge of it - whether black or white, Indigenous or not, rural or urban - would be well-served to join forces to demand basic needs like health care and housing. Monroe's central thesis regarding white supremacy and poverty is an interesting one, and their voice is an important one.

"Trash" is Cedar Monroe's story of the poor white people in Aberdeen, Washington, and the surrounding area. She focuses on their community on "The River" and their struggle with the day-to-day needs. As a minister she does what she can to help them out, with the means of physical survival, and with emotional and psychological support. She herself had a difficult childhood in the same community, but succeeded with becoming educated, and then she came back to do what she could to help the people in the same situation. Despite the final termination of the homeless community camp by the river, she continues to help the people there. Her analysis of the causes of the poverty and homelessness is eloquently stated and explained, that the affected people are relegated to the bottom of the capitalistic society, which values money over people's lives.

They say we are trash people. White trash. My story is part of the story of the sixty-six million poor white people in the United States. We live scattered around the country, from rural towns and farms to inner cities, from trailer parks on the edge of towns to tent cities in our largest urban areas. I come from these people, variously called, in popular culture, white trash, rednecks, poor whites, or crackers. My wife calls us broke-ass white people.

It is a stubborn aspect of white supremacy to blame poor people for the mistakes they make while ignoring the system that continues to kill them.
My generation of poor white people, and the generations after us, get to choose: between the empty promises of white supremacy, on the one hand, and solidarity with poor people across race on the other. This book is about that choice.
Who am I, as a poor white person? What is my history? Why are poor white people pitted against people of color? Why are 33 percent of white people poor, and why are 43.5 percent of Americans poor? And why don't we join forces across various divisions—and across the globe—to end our poverty?
This book is a story of confronting the history of this country and the marks of its devastation on one corner of the world. It is the story of learning from the Indigenous people of this place, whose land this is, as they suffer the continued effects of genocide. It is the story of confronting white supremacy, in my own heart and in my community, as we seek a way forward in a country that has betrayed us. It is the story of poor white people, my own people, who are marked as failed white people and treated accordingly. It is the story of the punishment meted out to those who fail white supremacy.
