Social Ethics for the African-American Church

Here is a study in theological social ethics for North American black churches. It aims to present a conception of liberty/freedom and a liberating social ethic, both relentlessly informed by a black churchly understanding of ourselves in relation to God. There are two main questions: How should we conceive of liberty/freedom? and What should contemporary black churches do in order to contribute to the continuing struggle for liberty? Answers derive from consulting black church history, black theology and the philosophy of black power. Also, the descriptions, predictions and public policy prescriptions of liberal and black sociologies are evaluated from a black churchly perspective. Rightly conceived, liberty/freedom includes comprehensive social-economic-political empowerment and righteous relations to God and others. Accordingly, we church folk should empower the people through an ethic of breaking bread. The religious and social stakes are high. Where bread is not broken, Jesus is not recognized, God is not served, and the people are not free.

In the past few years, a new generation of progressive intellectuals has dramatically transformed how law, race, and racial power are understood and discussed in America. Questioning the old assumptions of both liberals and conservatives with respect to the goals and the means of traditional civil rights reform, critical race theorists have presented new paradigms for understanding racial injustice and new ways of seeing the links between race, gender, sexual orientation, and class. This reader, edited by the principal founders and leading theoreticians of the critical race theory movement, gathers together for the first time the movement's most important essays.

Rhetorical Healing

The Reeducation of Contemporary Black Womanhood

Reveals the rhetorical strategies African American writers have used to promote Black women’s recovery and wellness through educational and entertainment genres and the conservative gender politics that are distributed when these efforts are sold for public consumption. Since the Black women’s literary renaissance ended nearly three decades ago, a profitable and expansive market of self-help books, inspirational literature, family-friendly plays, and films marketed to Black women has emerged. Through messages of hope and responsibility, the writers of these texts develop templates that tap into legacies of literacy as activism, preaching techniques, and narrative formulas to teach strategies for overcoming personal traumas or dilemmas and resuming one’s quality of life. Drawing upon Black vernacular culture as well as scholarship in rhetorical theory, literacy studies, Black feminism, literary theory, and cultural studies, Tamika L. Carey deftly traces discourses on healing within the writings and teachings of such figures as Oprah Winfrey, Iyanla Vanzant, T. D. Jakes, and Tyler Perry, revealing the arguments and curricula they rely on to engage Black women and guide them to an idealized conception of wellness. As Carey demonstrates, Black women’s wellness campaigns indicate how African Americans use rhetorical education to solve social problems within their communities and the complex gender politics that are mass-produced when these efforts are commercialized.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

Written by the most prominent of the new generation of historians, this superb volume offers the most up-to-date and authoritative account available of African-American history, ranging from the first Africans brought as slaves into the Americas, to today's black filmmakers and politicians. Here is a panoramic view of African American life, rich in gripping first-person accounts and short character sketches that invite readers to relive history as African Americans experienced it. We begin in Africa, with the growth of the slave trade, and follow the forced migration of what is estimated to be between ten and twenty million people, witnessing the terrible human cost of slavery in the colonies of England and Spain. We read of the Haitian Revolution, which ended victoriously in 1804 with the birth of the first independent black nation in the New World, and of slave rebellions and resistance in the United States in the years leading up to the Civil War. There are vivid accounts of the Civil War and Reconstruction years, the backlash of notorious "Jim Crow" laws and mob lynchings, and the founding of key black educational institutions. The contributors also trace the migration of blacks to the major cities, the birth of the Harlem Renaissance, the hardships of the Great Depression and the service of African Americans in World War II, the struggle for Civil Rights in the 1950s and '60s, and the emergence of today's black middle class. From Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass to Martin Luther King, Jr., and Louis Farrakhan, To Make Our World Anew is an unforgettable portrait of a people.

Shrinking Violets and Caspar Milquetoasts

Shyness, Power, and Intimacy in the United States, 1950-1995

Since World War II Americans’ attitudes towards shyness have changed. The women’s movement and the sexual revolution raised questions about communication, self-expression, intimacy, and personality, leading to new concerns about shyness. At the same time, the growth of psychotherapy and the mental health industry brought shyness to the attention of professionals who began to regard it as an illness in need of a cure. But what is shyness? How is it related to gender, race, and class identities? And what does its stigmatization say about our culture? In Shrinking Violets and Caspar Milquetoasts, Patricia McDaniel tells the story of shyness. Using popular self-help books and magazine articles she shows how prevailing attitudes toward shyness frequently work to disempower women. She draws on evidence as diverse as 1950s views of shyness as a womanly virtue to contemporary views of shyness as a barrier to intimacy to highlight how cultural standards governing shyness reproduce and maintain power differences between and among women and men.

Warum ich nicht länger mit Weißen über Hautfarbe spreche

Viel zu lange wurde Rassismus als reines Problem rechter Extremisten definiert. Doch die subtileren, nicht weniger gefährlichen Vorurteile finden sich dort, wo man am wenigsten mit ihnen rechnen würde – im Herzen der achtbaren Gesellschaft. Was bedeutet es, in einer Welt, in der Weißsein als die selbstverständliche Norm gilt, nicht weiß zu sein? Reni Eddo-Lodge spürt den historischen Wurzeln der Vorurteile nach, und zeigt unmissverständlich, dass die Ungleichbehandlung Weißer und Nicht-Weißer unseren Systemen seit Generationen eingeschrieben ist. Ob in Politik oder Popkultur – nicht nur in der europaweiten Angst vor Immigration, sondern auch in aufwogenden Protestwellen gegen eine schwarze Hermine oder einen dunkelhäutigen Stormtrooper wird klar: Diskriminierende Tendenzen werden nicht nur von offenen Rassisten, sondern auch von vermeintlich toleranten Menschen praktiziert. Um die Ungerechtigkeiten des strukturellen Rassismus herauszustellen und zu bekämpfen, müssen darum People of Color und Weiße gleichermaßen aktiv werden – »Es gibt keine Gerechtigkeit, es gibt nur uns.«

Why I Hate Abercrombie & Fitch

Essays On Race and Sexuality

Publisher: NYU Press

ISBN: 0814761232

Category: Social Science

Why hate Abercrombie? In a world rife with human cruelty and oppression, why waste your scorn on a popular clothing retailer? The rationale, Dwight A. McBride argues, lies in “the banality of evil,” or the quiet way discriminatory hiring practices and racist ad campaigns seep into and reflect malevolent undertones in American culture. McBride maintains that issues of race and sexuality are often subtle and always messy, and his compelling new book does not offer simple answers. Instead, in a collection of essays about such diverse topics as biased marketing strategies, black gay media representations, the role of African American studies in higher education, gay personal ads, and pornography, he offers the evolving insights of one black gay male scholar. As adept at analyzing affirmative action as dissecting Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, McBride employs a range of academic, journalistic, and autobiographical writing styles. Each chapter speaks a version of the truth about black gay male life, African American studies, and the black community. Original and astute, Why I Hate Abercrombie & Fitch is a powerful vision of a rapidly changing social landscape.

For The Black Woman gives perspective to the root cause of many physical and psychological ills haunting black women today. Whether children, economics, sexuality or divine orientation. This book addresses the pain of the past and current after affects that still hinder us and our men from taking advantage of the benefits of raising a family and prospering like other races and nationalities. It points out how we were used for experimental purposes, from which the American School of Gynecology was established and the darker side of our true relationship with the white woman.

Wie viel ein schwarzes Leben zählt. Patrisse Khan-Cullors, die Mitbegründerin der neuen Bürgerrechtsbewegung #BlackLivesMatter, erzählt in diesem Buch vom Aufwachsen in einem Land, das von Armut, Ungleichheit und rassistischer Polizeigewalt geprägt ist. Sie schildert, wie sie Menschen begegnet, die entschlossen sind, Amerika zu verändern. Gemeinsam mit ihnen fordert sie eine neue Antwort auf eine alte Frage: Wie viel zählt ein schwarzes Leben? Als im Sommer 2013 der Nachbarschaftswachmann George Zimmerman, der den 17-jährigen schwarzen Schüler Trayvon Martin erschossen hat, freigesprochen wird, entsteht in den USA eine neue Bürgerrechtsbewegung unter dem Hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. In diesem Buch erzählt die Mitbegründerin ihre Geschichte. Patrisse Khan-Cullors wird in einem der ärmsten Viertel von Los Angeles geboren. Schon als kleines Mädchen erlebt sie den grundlegenden Unterschied, den ihre Hautfarbe bedeutet: in der Schule, in Freundschaften, in der Nachbarschaft. Der Zusammenhalt in ihrer Familie wird immer wieder auf die Probe gestellt – ihre Eltern, Verwandten und Geschwister kämpfen verzweifelt gegen die Folgen von Polizeigewalt, Ausbeutung in McJobs, Drogensucht, Rassismus und staatlicher Willkür. Auf dem Weg in ein selbstbestimmtes und freies Leben helfen ihr Kunst, Bildung und große Offenheit für andere Menschen. Ein Netzwerk entsteht, dessen Engagement über den Kampf gegen Rassismus hinausgeht. In eindringlicher Sprache erzählt Patrisse Khan-Cullors aus dem Alltag eines unbekannten Amerikas. Ihre zutiefst bewegende Geschichte hat eine einfache Botschaft: #BlackLivesMatter.
