The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table, by Tracie McMillan


The stories of her actual experiences are interesting, as are some of her conclusions about them. But in the end it's still a person who is white telling us how non-white people feel, a fairly well-off person (comparatively) telling us how poor people feel, after barely dipping her toes into the world they live in. It's a type of journalism that is unsatisfying.
