There are 3 comments on Rich vs Poor: BU Learn More Series to Focus on Social Class in America

  1. Nancy, truly unfortunate that the average age of university life is not up to dismantling your wide brush extravaganza for socialist BS.

    For reasons not necessary to discuss this almost 80 yer old just happened onto your propaganda.

    Collegial would be the wrong word for me to use to describe a discussion with someone so entrenched in taking the great distinction between common sense and non-sense and blurring it into the political correctness of the times.

    Let me just leave anyone reading this with the understanding I pray you have the curiosity to research this woman’s words to understand the sophistry.

    Stay well.

  2. Professor Isenberg:

    God Bless You for writing a book to increase insight and empathy for a group
    of people who can be mocked, marginalized and discriminated against with
    no legal mechanism others enjoy to defend their identity and integrity.

    Also, since historically many of those who have served and continue to serve
    in the US Military are or are related to many of these people:
    (Think J.D. Vance. Hillbilly Elegy) , and come from these communities.

    I read this book a couple of years ago, I especially appreciated that Professor
    Isenberg was astute to include the fictional movie: Deliverance.

    Deliverance (complete fiction) portrayed rural white males as being deranged
    murderers during the 1970’s. This is all while many of them are being injured
    or killed in the Vietnam War they were drafted into mind you.

    Thank you, again, professor Isenberg and thank you BU for series. Hopefully
    the more people that learn about this history will be more empathetic in the
    future.

    Peace & God Bless America.
