Hillbilly Elegy

Hillbilly Elegy is the talk of the political world right now. I didn't read the book, but I read an essay (or excerpt) from the author and my takeaway is that working class whites refuse to get an education and refuse to move away from towns with no economic viability and denigrate anyone who tries to improve their situation as getting "too big for their britches." So I feel like it's not Obama's fault or my fault (as an educated "elite") that these people's prospects aren't better!
