James Baldwin, the intellectual father of Critical White Studies, observed, “No
one was white before he/she came to America.” Rather, Irish, German, Italian,
Jewish, English, French, and other immigrants became white by endorsing white
supremacy and actively oppressing those thereby constructed as black. They “
became white . . . because of the necessity of denying the black presence, and
justifying the black subjugation.”3 By “necessity,” Baldwin does not mean that
immigrants ...

In a state where labor was associated with black skin and the whip and chain,
white workingmen feared becomingwhite slaves” or “white negroes,” as
proslavery advocates like Robert Wickliffe contemptuously labeled them, and “
every man shuns labor as an evil.” Under these circumstances, claimed a group
of Louisville conservatives, “necessity alone can compel a man to toil by the side
of his neighbor's slave, and under this compulsion the freeman becomes
discontented with his ...

culture" as a "culture," because they have the outsider's perspective to be able to
see that it exists.15 As groups immigrated, they had to assimilate to European
culture to escape prejudice and discrimination, find work, and ultimately "become
" white.16 It surprises many students when told, for example, that the second
wave of Irish and Italian immigrants, ancestors to many of them, were actually
considered a different race, not just a different ethnic group, when they first
arrived in the ...

The variable nature of female birds is discussed at length in Robert White and
Robert Link's parakeet study.* As has been known for some time, removal of the
functional ovary in a female bird results in her rudimentary ovary developing into
a testis, and the bird becoming male. White and Link's searching psychological
study traces the frantic and fearful behavior changes in six female parakeets
subjected to surgical removal of their functional ovaries. All six did indeed
become ...

Derek Walcott The fact that neither Aime Cesaire nor Leopold Senghor, two
major poets of our time, are included in a volume I own called "The Concise
Encyclopaedia of Modern World Literature", (although Amos Tutuola is registered
), may illustrate the necessity of "Negritude". There is a concept of language and
literature as being white that on one hand divides writers racially — anthologies
of Negro poetry for example, are becoming popular — and which on the other
claims that art ...

'White', 'popular', and 'cocaine' are all rigid, by my account, and the statements '
white is popular' and 'cocaine is white' are true; but these statements fail to be
necessarily true since there is nothing to prevent white from becoming
unfashionable or cocaine from taking on another color. The failure of rigidity to
underwrite the necessity of essential-property attributing statements like 'white is
a color' in the same, straightforward way that rigidity underwrites the necessity of
identity ...

The Native American culture and artifacts fascinated non-Native Americans as a
source of inspiration for craftsmanship and as an idealized image of preindustrial
handicrafts. The reality of the Indian nation, though, was far different. By the turn
of the century, Native Americans were being forced to conform to the lifestyle of
white men who had conquered them and, especially after the Dawes Act of 1 887
, were steadily losing their tribal lands to the white settlers. Their culture was

[whiteness is] this cowardice, this necessity of justifying a totally false identity and
of justifying what must be called a genocidal history has placed everyone now
living into the hands of the most ignorant and powerful people the world has ever
seen.35 Karen Brodkin may argue otherwise, contending that becoming white
was a process simultaneously assigned and acquiesced to Jewish populations
both for the dominant white American culture's benefit as well as for the survival

The error of the Megarians rests in their limiting being to actuality. ... We still must
account for the very becoming of that which, through time, is converted into
necessity: what is irreversibly accomplished. But since Diodorus ... 18 b9,
Ammonius remarks: “Of those who make predictions about it ['something will be
white'] it is not the one who says that of necessity it will be white who will speak
truly, but rather the one who says that all of this will occur in a contingent manner"
