Killing Race, Preserving Racism: Adam Manbach's Angry Black White Boy and The End of the Jews

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Post-racial discourse has become parlance at coffee tables across America. The term “post-racial,” though discussed in academia for nearly two decades, was introduced to mass society amidst the media frenzy surrounding Senator Barack Obama’s campaign. However, even as Obama enlisted concerted efforts to separate himself from the rhetoric of race, racial tension and racism is maintained in media and public agendas.
At this moment, the cultural climate of the United States is not “post-racial,” but it is within an era of Neo-racialism where post-Civil Rights and post-Affirmative Action has established a tenor of covert racism and racialization. The overt public denigration of non-whites by whites, historically acceptable, is now socially demonized, while pulling the “race card” has become a superfluous trump by numerous disgruntled blacks.
Couched within the frameworks of Critical Race and Whiteness Studies, this essay examines the evolving tone of American race relations in two novels by Adam Mansbach, Angry Black White Boy and The End of the Jews, concerning the advent of neo-abolitonism, race traitors, and neo-racialism. Mansbach’s works are expressions of what happens when one tries to relinquish membership to the “club of whiteness.” Newcomer Adam Mansbach is a frequent lecturer on race, music, and literature, Mansbach is a voice declaring to make whiteness visible to contemporary audiences. Growing up as a white, suburban teenager entrenched in hip-hop culture, he has now developed a body of literature that often interrogates the production of race and racism from behind the veil of whiteness.
