Genre: Social Science

It’s “the nuclear bomb of racial epithets,” a word that whites have employed to wound and degrade African Americans for three centuries. Paradoxically, among many black people it has become a term of affection and even empowerment. The word, of course, is nigger, and in this candid, lucidly argued book the distinguished legal scholar Randall Kennedy traces its origins, maps its multifarious connotations, and explores the controversies that rage around it. Should blacks be able to use nigger in ways forbidden to others? Should the law treat it as a provocation that reduces the culpability of those who respond to it violently? Should it cost a person his job, or a book like Huckleberry Finn its place on library shelves? With a range of reference that extends from the Jim Crow south to Chris Rock routines and the O. J. Simpson trial, Kennedy takes on not just a word, but our laws, attitudes, and culture with bracing courage and intelligence.

Release Date: 1962
Genre: Blacks

The Nigger of the ‘Narcissus’ is the tale of a dying West Indian black sailor on board a merchant ship Narcissus. He is suffering from tuberculosis and falls ill during the journey, and his misfortunes arouse the humanitarian sympathies of the crew members, five of whom rescue him from his deck cabin during a storm, placing their own lives and the ship at risk. The ship’s captain Alistoun, however, is more concerned with the duties of the ship. This book was written in 1896, following a journey that Conrad himself had taken from Bombay to London.

You re the nigger baby it isn t me Rassismus Kapitalismus und Bildung als postkoloniale Subjektivierung

Genre: Social Science

Essay aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Politische Soziologie, Majoritäten, Minoritäten, Note: 1,0, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Institut für Bildungswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Bildungssoziologie und Soziologie sozialer Ungleichheit, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In einer filmischen Dokumentation aus dem Jahre 1963 über einen Besuch von James Baldwin in San Francisco spricht dieser als ein schwarzer homosexueller Autor und politischer Aktivist über die Gewalt von Worten und dekonstruiert ein auch heute noch existierendes Wort zur Benennung einer spezifischen kolonialen Subjektposition: „Anyone's whose tried to live knows this: That what you say about anyone else ... reveals you. What I think of you as being, is dictated by my own necessities, my own psychology, my own fears and desires. I'm not describing you when I talk about you, I'm describing me.“ Später in seiner Rede stellt James Baldwin die Frage: „I've always known that I am not a nigger. But if I am not the nigger, and if it's true that your invention reveals you, then who is the nigger?” Er argumentiert die Antwort dann selbst: “Well, he's unnecessary to me, so he must be necessary to you. So I give you your problem back: You're the nigger, baby, it isn't me.” Der Äußerungsakt von James Baldwin kann als Zeugnis einer frühen subversiv-dekonstruktivistischen bzw. dekolonialen Intervention in rassistische und gesellschafts-politische Diskriminierungsdiskurse in den USA gelesen werden. Baldwin rekurriert hier auf jene gängige Vorstellung eines Selbst, das sich dadurch hervorbringt, dass es die Perspektive der*des Anderen einnimmt, so eine Vorstellung von sich ausbildet, um dann einen Akt der Subjektivierung durch Objektivierung vollziehen zu können. Durch seinen Akt der Gegenübertragung dieser gewaltvollen Subjektivierungspraxis wendet er so die sprachliche Gewalt gegen die Gewalttäter. Im Kontext der Ziele der Dokumentation, die im Auftrag eines kalifornischen TV-Bildungsprogramms hergestellt wurde, ist sein Beitrag gleichsam ein frühes Zeugnis anti-rassistischer Bildungsarbeit, da hier Fragen einer antirassistischen Pädagogik bearbeitet werden, so wie sie Maria Do Mar Castro Varela und Birgit Jagusch auch für eine geschlechtergerechte und antirassistische Jugendarbeit formulieren: Es geht dabei darum, wie die Mechanismen der Konstruktion von Zugehörigkeit und Ausgrenzung funktionieren und welche Möglichkeiten es gibt, der beständigen Reproduktion von gleich und anders zu entgehen.

Step inside the lost paradise of a Brave New World. This book is rated PG: Psychopathic Genius... Vanity is the only sanity.

The Life and Loves of Mr Jiveass Nigger

Author: Cecil Brown
Publisher: Frog Books
ISBN: 1583942106
Release Date: 2008-01
Genre: Fiction

“If you're black you don't need to get at anything. You're already there. You can live right out of your insides.” So says the antihero of this legendary novel that reimagines the Bible’s prodigal son as a young black man in post-Civil Rights-era America. George Washington—one of his many aliases—is a classic trickster figure, a blend of con artist, deep thinker, and willing object of white women’s sexual fantasies. Fed up with life in racist America, he leaves his rural South for Denmark on a curious quest, determined to discover if there is “any mother fucker in this despiteful world who ever told himself the truth.” In Denmark he spends his days bantering with fellow black expatriates and his nights bedding a series of white women who project their desires on him. Inevitably, these worlds collide, with Washington, aka Anthony Miller, aka Paul Winthrop, aka Mr. Jiveass Nigger, increasingly alienated in a world of opportunists. A return to America after his self-imposed exile promises transformation, but is Washington too far gone? Cecil Brown brings blistering prose, unabashed eroticism, and biting satire to this controversial masterpiece that’s as timely today as when it was first published.

Genre:

The purpose of the current study is to expand knowledge of the history of the term Nigger and its variation Nigga (Nigger/a) in Hip-Hop music. The word "Nigger/a" was a label for African slaves that was also used to signify inferiority. "Nigger/a" is often used in the African American community as a term of endearment. Moreover, the word is regularly used in Hip-Hop music. Eight Hip-Hop songs from the early 1990"s and 2011-2013 were used to identify trends in how the word was used in reference to the artist and others. Hip-Hop lyrics from the early 1990"s used "Nigger/a" largely to speak of discrimination and other social disparities while the modern artists used the term to gain solidarity from their audience. The modern Hip-Hop lyrics did not contain Nigger or any variation of the term as frequently as the lyrics from the 1990"s. Misogynist messages appeared in the more current lyrics and no misogynist lyrics were identified in the older lyrics. Results suggest that successful Hip-Hop/rap songs are not authentic unless the word nigga is used to gain solidarity and misogyny is used in reference to women.
