Lyndon Johnson once observed, “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket.” UVM English professor Greg Bottoms discusses his memoir, Lowest White Boy, which explores the powerful historical, cultural, social, and political forces behind white supremacy.
