Explanation of the Book:

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.

Explanation of the Book:

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, University of Duisburg-Essen, course: Views of Linguistic Correctness, language: English, abstract: This thesis deals with the lexeme nigger" under the aspect of the ongoing debate about political correctness. The aim is to show, how the word has developed from a neutral meaning to a taboo word and why and where it arouses a great deal of interest in public. Furthermore, I want to analyse, using the example of nigger," how offensive words are objectively described and how that is documented in some important monolingual dictionaries of the English language. The lexical field about and around the word nigger" has aroused people's interest in the last two decades. More and more people from Africa immigrate to Europe due to war, poverty, etc. in their home countries. Expressions for addressing and talking about black people are used more often than in the past and therefore these words gain people's attention. Especially the term nigger" has led and still leads to discussions in public today. Several incidents have contributed to the growing interest about the word, too. To only name one example amongst hundreds, the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida in February 2012, caused a worldwide discussion about racial discrimination. The African-American student was shot by the 28-year-old neighbourhood watch George Zimmerman, a Hispanic man, who was responsible for the gated community where Martin was living. During an altercation Zimmerman shot the boy who was unarmed. The neighbourhood watch claimed he had acted in self-defence. The fact that he was not charged with murder, due to lack of evidence, made the huge debate about racial discrimination worse (McVeigh 2012). There are a lot of other examples that could be mentioned, where (innocent) black people have been abused by white people with racist motives, even by police force but this is"

Explanation of the Book:

Is there a "nigger" in you? If you have attempted to avoid and/or escape oppression, been made to feel as if you are a problem, been treated as "lesser than" or even like a criminal, all just because you are different in a given context, then what Dr. J. W. Wiley asserts through the title of this book inescapably applies to you. Through any of our multiple identities--our socio-economic class, level of education, gender, disability, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion--we are all potential victims as well as perpetrators of denigrating language and discrimination. Dr. Wiley borrows the agency of nigger to re-frame the word as no longer just a racial term but one that symbolizes many of the ways we disrespect or bully one another, are inconsiderate of one another, prejudge one another, and internalize our demonization. He defines the word in a way that demonstrates its equivalence to other dysfunctional language (retard, bitch, fag, trailer trash, etc.) that suggests that those so targeted are unworthy of consideration in our society. By creating a conversation around such language, Dr. Wiley challenges us to recognize that, when we give in to our prejudices and stereotypes, the "nigger in you" is what we are apt to see when we encounter those different from ourselves. By dissecting the offensive language we often use, consciously or unconsciously, Dr. Wiley provokes us to recognize that, since every one of us has multiple identities beyond just the color of our skin, it is virtually impossible for most of us not to have felt the sting of oppression or the power of privilege. Consequently, it is morally incumbent on us to contest and ultimately transcend oppression wherever we encounter it, to respect the humanity of those different from us, and become allies in the war to protect and advance people's right to be different. Through personal stories, scholarship, poetry, commentary on current affairs, lyrics, and his experiences as a Black man both rooted in African American culture and the culture of the academy, Dr. Wiley leads us on a journey toward social justice. In doing so, he empowers us to embrace our leadership moments by engaging those who would perpetrate dysfunctional language or behavior, and help create a world in which differences are respected and validated.

Explanation of the Book:

abstract: while in fact all countries are white. some countries on earth are largely comprised of a black hominoid population of individuals commonly referred to as niggers. I am from one of these countries. I was unclear as to how black jamaica actually is. to assess this and also to learn about the other black nigger countries, I defined a black country as a country for which the population of black skinned fitzpatrick 6 congoid niggers is greater than 75%. I used infoplease.com to access composite data demonstrating the racial mix of each country. There are 47 black nigger countries on earth according to my definition. This is also referred to as the third world. these countries are all in the congo, which is south of the sahara desert, and the caribbean. I was also interested in identifying the most intelligent black country. so after creating that list of black nigger countries, I then abstracted composite data from richard lynn and tatu vanhanen's book on intelligence. I organized this data and computed some fundamental statistics. the range of final estimated intelligence quotients for black nigger countries is 60.1 to 84. the mode is 71, and the mean is 70.523, and the median is 71. the most intelligent black country is bahamas, which is in the caribbean. the least intelligent black country is malawi, which is in the congo. the most intelligent black country of the congo is rwanda, with an estimated intelligence quotient of 76. the blackest countries are in the congo. the whitest of the black nigger countries is saint vincent and the grenadines, and second was niger, and third is south africa. their percent of black niggerness according to my equation is 77.88%, 81.999%, and 84.21875% respectively, and their final estimated intelligence quotients are 71, 70, and 71.6, respectively. do note that nigger is a very important word and it is very specific. nigger is much more specific than black.

Explanation of the Book:

Niggerology 101 is a must read book; for every Afrikan man, woman, and child. Niggerology 101 is the powerful new book, which both honesty, and analytically scrutinizes both the word nigger, and the mutant creations which evolved out of this word. The word nigger all and them that illogically identify themselves as niggers and niggas are a dysfunctional and devastatingly direct cultural offense, to all constructive and socially progressive Afrikan peoples. Day after day, that abominable word, nigger, is frivolously tossed around with more and more casualness, and daily, those of us for whom this iniquitous word was premeditatedly fashioned; descend deeper, and deeper into the destructively demoralizing depths of despair, despondency, and desperation. Unbeknownst to most; Afrikans are the deliberate, and the intentional targets of their wicked abomination. Nigger is an iniquitous incantation, designed by malevolent people, to lead Afrikan people into the throes damnation, devastation, and ruination, upon its very invocation! Certain vocalizations possess enormous amounts of power, for the spoken word is a very influential medium. The words we speak, constructed in deliberately premeditated patterns, can lead us to hope, health, and happiness, or death, destruction, and despair. The word nigger is an evil word fashioned from the depths evil to constantly produce, reproduce and broadcast the type of iniquitous damage that nigger encompasses. Nigger has that much power! AmeriKKKa long ago initiated her unconstructive paradigm to fabricate niggers, and construct faux nigger realities, and the slaves have long since fallen prey to their nigger agendas. AmeriKKKa produces nigger music, nigger movies, nigger fashions, and a host of the nigger things, for them niggers, and niggas to do. Our oppressors have fashioned paradoxical nigger paradigms, premeditated, by design to function on the basic principles of, "trust, trick, and trap." They induce Afrikans to trust those people which enslaved and oppress them; and trick them into falling for the forged fallacies, and dreams of being prosperous niggers, getting nigger rich; and trap niggers, into the never-ending cycles of, forever chasing superficial shadows, and faux fantasies designed to eviscerate, incarcerate, and surreptitiously annihilate all Afrikan people. This book/lesson plan is a tutorial of essays, observations and poetry intended to assist in the stimulation, education, and revitalization of the Afrikan mind, body, and soul. This book is being created as a heartfelt effort to guide back the innumerable multitudes of Afrikans, who have candidly succumbed to the carefully crafted deceptions of bigoted oppressors. This book/lesson plan is being written especially for those who think that they can change definitions; by endeavoring to put positive spins on sin. You can't put positive spins on sin. "Where my niggas at?" They are lost, within AmeriKKKa's ghettoes, jails, penitentiaries, and the prisons of their own minds! Mustafa Rasul Al-Amin

Editor: Jonathan Ball Publishers
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Capitalist Nigger is an explosive and jarring indictment of the black race. The book asserts that the Negroid race, as naturally endowed as any other, is culpably a non-productive race, a consumer race that depends on other communities for its culture, its language, its feeding and its clothing. Despite enormous natural resources, blacks are economic slaves because they lack the ‘devil-may-care’ attitude and the ‘killer instinct’ of the Caucasian, as well as the spider web mentality of the Asian. A Capitalist Nigger must embody ruthlessness in pursuit of excellence in his drive towards achieving the goal of becoming an economic warrior. In putting forward the idea of the Capitalist Nigger, Chika Onyeani charts a road to success whereby black economic warriors employ the ‘Spider Web Doctrine’ – discipline, self-reliance, ruthlessness – to escape from their victim mentality. Born in Nigeria, Chika Onyeani is a journalist, editor and former diplomat.

Explanation of the Book:

More than any other black leader, H. Rap Brown, chairman of the radical Black Power organization Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), came to symbolize the ideology of black revolution. This autobiography--which was first published in 1969, went through seven printings and has long been unavailable--chronicles the making of a revolutionary. It is much more than a personal history, however; it is a call to arms, an urgent message to the black community to be the vanguard force in the struggle of oppressed people. Forthright, sardonic, and shocking, this book is not only illuminating and dynamic but also a vitally important document that is essential to understanding the upheavals of the late 1960s. University of Massachusetts professor Ekwueme Michael Thelwell has updated this edition, covering Brown's decades of harassment by law enforcement agencies, his extraordinary transformation into an important Muslim leader, and his sensational trial.
