AUTHORS | Where did the giraffe
end up? How was color not based on skin color in the IO world? How else
is yellow not like white? What else pulls Black and yellow apart?
Memorize paper format:
Black male traits.
What exactly did the Renunciation Act allow people to do?
Why was the Renunciation Act ruled unconstitutional?
Is Jaden Smith in Karate Kid a sign of tension or alliance?
Differences between people were
rooted in language; lots of commerce and trade (giraffe); cosmopolitan,
cordial, open; polyculturalism; linguistic exchanges (Swahili and
Arabic, etc.); Da Gama brought avarice and violence.
Economics, not on the basis of
race. Color was not based on skin color. Racism was necessary to justify
slavery's practices. Capitalism and race are wedded. There must be an
exploited group to generate profit.
LeBron and Gisele cover (African
American man as King Kong), animalization; The need for labor and land
(slavery and plantation labor); "negative comparison": wild,
instinctual, savage, childlike; not masters over their natural life;
therefore they needed to be controlled by others, sexually and socially.
In contrast to: white, Christian, rational, sexually controlled,
First wave of Asian immigration: 1848-1924. Themes:
Nativism = anti-immigrant.
Push and pull of international migration.
Labor needs and creating the nation.
WHat is the relationship between capitalism and racism?
Immigration laws, restrictions, and defining America.
What accounted for increasing anti-Chinese nativism?
Work on the transcontinental railroad further east while the Irish were building it further west.
Declining economy led to an increase in racism and anti-immigration.
Media depictions of Chinese men as superhuman (eight arms) AND subhuman (rat like).
Two percent of the nationality in
the U.S. in 1890 can immigrate. Virtually stopped S & E European
immigration. Also stopped Asian migration (esp. Japanese). Consolidated
whiteness, drew a line around Europe.
Scientific racism developed when? What did it argue?
Post-slavery. It was not
objective. Argued that the outside characteristics of a person tell us
about the inside of a person. Darkness does not equal Blackness. It
argued that people with different characteristics (or races) can't mix.
Hypersexed Black woman, overly sexual, predatory, animalistic;
Therefore justifies when white men sexually assault Black women;
normalizes heterosexuality; upholds white womanhood (enforces these
binaries; the white woman is pure; the Black woman is soiled;
commodification if someone always wants sex, they are unrapeable.
Ex.: Michelle Obama
Aggressive, family-head, emasculating for men.
Justifies "strong Black women," family issues. It becomes something to
put responsibility on the family instead of structures; serves to become
a scapegoat for blaming family culture, not structures; solidifies the
American work ethic.
Barack and Curtis illustrate what about Black masculinity:
It's narrow. Masculinity
constrains men who don't fulfill them. 50 Cent's music applies some
white supremacist thinking; AND the concept that a Black man can't have
both a Hugo Boss suit and baggy jeans in his wardrobe
Lazy, neglects kids, selfish, very fertile.
A way to control Black fertility in a shrinking economy; Argument that
she is having babies for more welfare; reinforces heterosexual
marriages; masks cuts in welfare spending (theory that cutting welfare
puts welfare queens into the job market).
They were viewed as a model
nation for people of color; the first nonwhite country to beat a white
one; Du Bois saw Japanese imperialism as the scourge of white supremacy;
Af Ams might resist the draft; created Afro-Asian organizations.
Given numbers, housed in stables;
Oftentimes, Japanese served as the labor for these camps. Lots of male suicide, alcoholism, decline in patriarchy.
Generation reversal: second gen (Nisei) viewed as more valuable, because they were viewed as more American.
Relative increase in women's independence.
Erosion of Issei power.
Allowed interned Japanese to
renunce U.S. citizenship: 5,700 did. Some renounced citizenship to stay
in camps longer before being shipped back to Japan, which was devastated
by war. The U.S. could then trade Japanese who renounced U.S.
citizenship and then draft for U.S. Americans held by Japan.
Is Beyonce appropriating? There
are Black people in India. India, a poor country, is being used for
entertainment rather than understanding. Race is not enough for an
analysis here, nationalism matters too.
Coldplay is British (colonization by the British --> Western cultural imperialism and American neocolonization)
The video is also HIndu-centric.
Ultimately, it's an Orientalist fantasy.
Black guy say's he's tired, gets multiple women.
White guy: he gets his pick of any and he gets the leading woman.
Asian guy: gets an Asian woman but it's really just for a part of the
plot later on, so she can be cunning, like a Dragon Lady, they aren't
sexual and Bruce Lee was busy doodling/thinking.
