About this product
- DescriptionIn this incisive and unflinching study, Randall Kennedy, author of <i>Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word, </i>tackles ather stigma of America's racial discourse: selling out. He explains the origins of the concept and shows how fear of this label has haunted prominent members of the black community including, most recently, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and Barack Obama. <b>Sellout </b>also contains a rigorously fair case study of America's quintessential racial sellout Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In the book's final section, Kennedy recounts how he himself has dealt with accusations of being a sellout after meeting fierce criticism at Harvard upon the publication of his book, <i>Nigger</i>.
