9/11/2020: “Sambos and Minstrels” by Sylvia Wynter

Today’s #AntiAbleistComposition feature is “Sambos and Minstrels” by Sylvia Wynter. The essay is published in the first issue of Social Text.

From the text:

“The internalization of the master-model by poor whites who owned no slaves – and who had no material relation to the ownership of slaves – gives insight into the power that the bourgeois [rich white elites] control of the means of socialization had in fashioning the attitudes and responses of the nonowning classes. It is here perhaps that we glimpse the mechanisms of the constitution of white racism, a pathology so deeply rooted and pervasive that Richard Wright defined the problem of the U.S.A. not as a Negro but as a White problem.”
