Wake Up White People,

You're Getting Screwed Too!

by FORMER OREGON STATE TREASURER, JIM HILL

The great question before our country now is when will middle-class Americans, especially the white middle class, finally wake up and realize that now they are the newest ‘second-class’ citizen and are being discriminated against and exploited.

Author Jim Hill

Among his many achievements, Jim Hill was the first person of color elected to a statewide office in Oregon State as the 25th State Treasure in 1993.

Jim Hill was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1947, and raised there by his single mother. After growing up in the segregated South, he received a BA in economics from Michigan State University in 1969, an MBA from Indiana University in 1971, and a JD from Indiana University College of Law in 1974. Jim moved to Salem, Oregon, in 1974, where he raised a biracial daughter, Jennifer, and worked as an Assistant Attorney General at the Oregon Department of Justice. He went on to become an Oregon State Representative in 1983 and an Oregon State Senator in 1987.

Reader Reviews

Jim Hill’s clarion call for the middle class to wake up to what is happening to them and to vote to turn the tide for a brighter future couldn’t be more timely and comes from unique life experiences.

... Jim Hill’s greatest strength is his deep compassion for other people. It does not surprise me at all that he would write a book dedicated to improving the lives of working class Americans.”
