Read Native Son 107 Is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in Ameri. Have you heard the name Trayvon Martin If you have good If you haven t look him up Open a tab search up the name T R A Y V O N etc and read Familiarize yourself with the exact definitions of the atrocity the scope of the repercussions throughout the US the up and currently running process of rectification that in a fair and just world would not be as excruciatingly slow and painful as it s turning out to be In a fair and just world he would not be one of countless mown down for everything but a valid reasonThis is not a fair and just worldNo this is a world where we have those who profess to be not only good writers deserving of literary rewards but good teachers of writing to boot despite bigoting their scope of literature down to the basic principle of whom they identify with based on parameters such as gender sexuality and color of skinDo you know what that sort of mentality would leave me reading this book Do you know which character I was expected to perfectly align with the one most feasible for the goal of sewing myself up in the skin and riding around in perfect harmony The young white girl so filled with highflown aspirations of social justice so loaded with easy income so filthy with white privilege who is suffocated and mutilated and burned up into a few fragments of bone and a single earringTell me then oh wise teacher keeper of books and innate sense of good literature white middle aged heterosexual the banality of character the default of personalization the one archetype for whom nearly the whole of literature has been customized for and has never known what it means to eke out an empathetic terrain on the basis of understanding not physicality Even here in this book written by a black man you have an overwhelming majority in terms of representation what with your Buckley your Max your multitudes of Klu Klux Klan and crowds and judges all in a big fat white male world While I have a single soul a Mary Dalton What the fuck am I supposed to do with her this small pretty idiot girl who knows nothing of the agony she is sustained by and thinks herself kind and generous by reaching out to those her very skin tone persecutes and compromising their existence with a single moment of stupidly inane trust What am I supposed to do with this pompously fulfilled imbecile this suicidally na ve prat who innocently frames her words out of what she perceives as an intention of kindness treating the other as an animal when she notices their plight and accessory ensuring her comfortable existence when she returns to her natural state of self righteous ignoranceFor you know teacher in spite of all that deficiencies on her part there is a case to be made when it comes to the casual abuse and even casual conformation of mind and soul of countless women in the history of both reality and literature Saintly virgin blighted whore girlfriend in a refrigerator all objects used with unconscious persistence of augmenting the male reality the male realization the male point of view You may not know teacher with your blatant refusal to even consider reading literature on the other side of the curtain of your all too male sensibilities but that is not how woman are That is not how I am and as such it would be all too easy to resonate with Bessie and Mary above all others young women there and gone in a swift spending of their use in the pursuit of a story of a young and violent manTell me in light of that should I hate Bigger Thomas Should I spit on him and his indomitable pride of living one that will not be blinded to the misery of him and his people no matter how much they beg and plead Should I ignore his anger his shame his fearful panic in the face of living cut and dried at every second every year every century that his ancestors were first wrenched away from their homeland and have suffered in inhuman bondage ever since Should I withhold my empathy for someone who looks the reality of his existence in the face dregging out his life in a country that rapes him into a corner and sees that as the way it ought to be Should I refuse to recognize the effects of a neverending amputation of the self s expression onto the wider plane of life and living the horrible conseuences that can and will result so long as oppression stamps its broken and bloody way across ethics and humanityShould I close my ears to the integrity of Max the manipulation of Buckley not chase the slightest bit of critical analysis of the two and their diatribes all because I cannot relate in terms of simple physicality Above all should I have not even embarked on this book written by Richard Wright because somehow I knew that I wouldn t relate because of the differences the author and I have in terms of skin and gender Tell me teacher although it s unlikely you would ever deserve the title no matter how much writing you did Would you have me stuff myself into a box that will cradle me with familiar blindness forever Would you have me tie myself down to the identity of someone like poor Mary Dalton the little fool and rightfully suffer for it For I will never know what it means on a visceral level to be black male and in the United States pushed past the farthest boundaries of humanity by centuries of systematic oppression of an entire people into a barren void where right and wrong sueak along with

Read Native Son 107 Right from the start Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance it was for murder and rape Native Son tells the st. My older brother Larry who is extremely well read recently came to town for a visit He had with him a copy of Native Son I asked what prompted him to re read it He explained that he had actually never read it before which he confessed was really odd given that the book is an undisputed classic Well here is Larry s two word review of the bookHoly shitI concurThose who have studied the Harlem Renaissance know that Richard Wright was a passionate angry man the writer about whom other African American writers of his era would say Well I d never write THAT but I m glad someone did Native Son is a brutally frank look at the racial divide of the America of the 1940s and the relevance to today is positively painfulThere have been many profound and moving stories both true and fictionalized of young black men wrongfully accused of crimes This book dares to tell the story of a young black man who in a moment of panic commits a horrible act That makes the way the man is treated thereafter so incredibly present and real You can t read this story from a distance You re in it you feel it so palpablyI think Native Son is one of the most powerful and important American books ever written

Read Native Son 107 Ory of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panicSet in Chicago in the 1930s Wright's powerful novel. One has got to appreciate the diplomatic mincing of words that graces the GR blurb Set in Chicago in the 1930s Wright s powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America A distinctly innocuous what it means to be black in America is a nice little euphemism for institutionalized racism or terminology like white supremacist capitalist patriarchy which are too confrontational too accusatory too ominous sounding That America continues to practice a similar form of conscious prevarication to avoid facing the true sordidness of its race problem is in some small way responsible for this book s enduring relevance America is still bowed under the weight of its real Bigger Thomas es and their collective existential agony otherwise Travyon Martin Michael Brown and Eric Garner would perhaps still be alive What the book blurb avoids spelling out is that to be black in America is to follow a trajectory of limited self improvement or slow and gradual decline carved out for one by malevolent mysterious forces way beyond one s control To be deprived of an agency to have one s freedom of movement thought and speech so severely restricted that the only way for a working class black man to make his presence felt in the world is by accidentally killing a rich white girl one whose coveted sexuality and beauty are treated as valuable objects in the ownership of the white supremacist capitalist patriarch Half the time I feel like I m on the outside of the world peeping in through a knothole in the fence Bigger Thomas embraces an absurd world and finds meaning in an otherwise futile existence only by committing accidental murder and finding a sense of accomplishment in that act but unlike Camus s Meursault the source of his private angst and indifference in the face of persecution is situated within a realm in which Jim Crow laws reign supreme It was the first full act of his life it was the most meaningful exciting and stirring thing that had ever happened to him He accepted it because it made him free gave him the possibility of choice of action the opportunity to act and to feel that his actions carried weight No other work has brought back memories of The Wire which has got to be the best thing ever made for television viewing as acutely as Native Son and Ta Nehisi Coates powerful diatribe against the systematic destruction of black bodies in contemporary America Between the World and Me because both books and tv show explicate the heart breaking conseuences of social injustice in its many macabre avatars and the trickle down effect of public policy aimed at preserving the noxious but brittle status uo And yet the discerning will not fail to notice that I have rated this work 4 stars despite my limitless love for The Wire This is majorly owing to the fact that Wright much like Camus in The Stranger seeks to rationalize a crimes simply to propound a philosophy The murdered women especially Bessie Mears are relegated to the status of lifeless plot devices whose purpose is merely to flesh out Bigger s fear of and anger at a world in which he is perpetually treated as a pariah Silly white entitled ignorant Mary Dalton is as much objectified by Bigger and his friends as by the self righteously outraged white community which treats her murder as an event of communal humiliation Her personhood life socialist inclinations and opinions are eventually subsumed by the color of her skin and its implied political symbolism That Bessie as a black woman is a doubly marginalized victim who suffers a two pronged form of oppression perpetrated both by an essentially racist social order and black men who find an amoral form of self expression through inflicting some kind of violence on the vulnerable is also never acknowledged by the narrative Not that I uestion Richard Wright s right to place black masculinity in the foreground of his novel but he achieves his narrative aim at the expense of overlooking the gravity of the hardships and everyday violence that black women endure Camus displays a similar thoughtlessness while portraying the accidental murder of a nameless Arab simply so that Meursault could have an epiphany and make peace with his absurd life and imminent execution Either scenario does not sit well with me After all it is usually the women and people of color who are robbed of even the minimal glory of true victimhood in literature
