You call your post an 'analysis' however I canot see what you have analysed. You appear to have listed racist steroetypes, which in itself is
What are you analysing exactly? Where is your research? Did you conduct any interviews/questionnaires?
Of course I researched this.I asked a black man who was a medic how he felt when the N-word was used on him.
This is what he said:-
He said "his heart sank and made him feel depressed and sapped his confidence in himself..Sometimes when he was alone and remembered it bought tears
to his eyes"
It sucks any pride he has in himself or his work.
Patients often used the word against him and many don't want to be examined by him.Many women patients think he is after them and their white bodies
and want a white doctor.
It also made him feel when he interacted with a white that the white saw him as a monkey and not as a human being....He feels the white man could
never get past his black skin".
He also said when he had a fight once with a white "friend" the first insult was you f------- N.
One can never separate a word from its connotations, denotations, and historical past.
The N-word has been established as a word to dehumanize black people and reinforce the idea that to be black is to be ignorant, childlike, and
three-fifths of a human being. The is a brand word, used as a justification for unspeakable acts of cruelty, injustice, and crimes.
Other major media examples are when Peter Jackson remade King Kong the shocking racism was astounding.
Blacks were portrayed as dumb spear chucking savages lusting after blond white women and beating bongo drums.Kong himself was the ultimate threat to
the white mans possession and had to be destroyed.
Did you see those horrible scenes with natives "screaming like there was no tomorrow" scenes.
That film was a huge hit with whites as it reinforced their ingrained stereotypes.
