In this book, Shelly Eversley historicizes the demand for racial authenticity - what Zora Neale Hurston called 'the real Negro' - in twentieth-century American literature. Eversley argues that the modern emergence of the interest in 'the real Negro' transforms the question of what race an author belongs into a question of what it takes to belong to that race. Consequently, Paul Laurence Dunbar's Negro dialect poems were prized in the first part of the century because - written by a black man - they were not 'imitation' black, while the dialect performances by Zora Neale Hurston were celebrated because, written by a 'real' black, they were not 'imitation' white. The second half of the century, in its dismissal of material segregation, sanctions a notion of black racial meaning as internal and psychological and thus promotes a version of black racial 'truth' as invisible and interior, yet fixed within a stable conception of difference. The Real Negro foregrounds how investments in black racial specificity illuminate the dynamic terms that define what makes a text and a person 'black', while it also reveals how 'blackness', spoken and authentic, guards a more fragile, because unspoken, commitment to the purity and primacy of 'whiteness' as a stable, uncontested ideal.

What’s Going On? In today’s era, the 1990s, this is what’s going on and society can see it’s not just paranoia - it’s real plain old fashioned hatred. These dramas were shown in movies such as Roots, The Ring, School Daze, Queen, and even Bedroom Eyes, to name a few - seemingly condemning ‘some shades of color’ in America. These movies and others show how society in this era is fragmenti ng, with racism, prejudice and discrimination against their own brothers / sisters that stemmed from the beginning and over the mere evolution of ti me, developed over the centuries to become what it is today. Division, dividing and conquering - one can see throughout the five centuries and fi ve statuses, the changes make no differences, that bias and bigotry with hatred still exists with all people of the world, and will remain until the Judgement Day. This is one reason why the Black’s fi ft h status change should require another box for the multi -mixed Americans, such as Black and Indian and White, Black and White, Black and Asian and White - etc., when the census comes around again. These individuals need to become and develop their own identities as born American citizens, and this change should have taken place along with the fifth status change for Black Americans. Future Americans may vote this in. This takes care of yesterday, today and tomorrow for a new beginning of all people, with hope for tomorrow. The late singer - songwriter by the name of Marvin Gaye may have been propheti c with his song, “What’s Going On?” It sounds just like today.
