Clearly, it has been neglected or perhaps ‘othered’ by both literary and non-literary scholars. It is my intention, therefore, to revisit this very issue through the eye of a fictional child, with CRT as my key theoretical frame, to seek new messages, viewpoints and positions on the issue of internalised racism and also, crucially, to seek to develop a new critical discourse regarding this silenced racial topic in relation to C&YA fiction.
In this book, this tenet and CRT’s Differential Racialisation, which is going to be discussed next, are two key tenets underlying most of the following chapters. Differential Racialisation This tenet certainly helps strengthen the fact that race is not a biological but socially constructed and manipulated category, as it holds that race, other than being socially constructed, is also constructed, at different times, in response to the shifting needs of the dominant group (Delgado and Stefancic, 2012).
In addition, a recent phenomenon—an African American presence in the White House, which is perhaps most historically, politically and socially momentous—has certainly helped create a global image of America as a 28 S. 1). With such progress made in law and politics, is it fair to say that America has now entered its post-racial era? Is a racially ambitious term such as ‘racelessness’ (Bernard, 2011) a fitting description for its current landscape? If so, should we not, then, give racism ‘a rest’ and move on?
