White poverty. Black poverty. To Michael Patrick MacDonald, author of incendiary New York Times best-selling memoir All Souls: A Family Story from Southie, and Easter Rising: A Memoir of Roots and Rebellion, a white kid in the soul-crushing poverty of South Boston, it was all the same. It was not just race, it was about class and the fact that all the kids in his neighborhood were poor -- fighting on the streets, becoming pawns in the drug trade, while living on food stamps and "wellie cheese." They were all the "have nots."
