“You're the nigger, baby, it isn't me”. Rassismus, Kapitalismus und Bildung als postkoloniale Subjektivierung

Essay aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Politische Soziologie, Majoritäten, Minoritäten, Note: 1,0, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Institut für Bildungswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Bildungssoziologie und Soziologie sozialer Ungleichheit, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In einer filmischen Dokumentation aus dem Jahre 1963 über einen Besuch von James Baldwin in San Francisco spricht dieser als ein schwarzer homosexueller Autor und politischer Aktivist über die Gewalt von Worten und dekonstruiert ein auch heute noch existierendes Wort zur Benennung einer spezifischen kolonialen Subjektposition: „Anyone's whose tried to live knows this: That what you say about anyone else ... reveals you. What I think of you as being, is dictated by my own necessities, my own psychology, my own fears and desires. I'm not describing you when I talk about you, I'm describing me.“ Später in seiner Rede stellt James Baldwin die Frage: „I've always known that I am not a nigger. But if I am not the nigger, and if it's true that your invention reveals you, then who is the nigger?” Er argumentiert die Antwort dann selbst: “Well, he's unnecessary to me, so he must be necessary to you. So I give you your problem back: You're the nigger, baby, it isn't me.” Der Äußerungsakt von James Baldwin kann als Zeugnis einer frühen subversiv-dekonstruktivistischen bzw. dekolonialen Intervention in rassistische und gesellschafts-politische Diskriminierungsdiskurse in den USA gelesen werden. Baldwin rekurriert hier auf jene gängige Vorstellung eines Selbst, das sich dadurch hervorbringt, dass es die Perspektive der*des Anderen einnimmt, so eine Vorstellung von sich ausbildet, um dann einen Akt der Subjektivierung durch Objektivierung vollziehen zu können. Durch seinen Akt der Gegenübertragung dieser gewaltvollen Subjektivierungspraxis wendet er so die sprachliche Gewalt gegen die Gewalttäter. Im Kontext der Ziele der Dokumentation, die im Auftrag eines kalifornischen TV-Bildungsprogramms hergestellt wurde, ist sein Beitrag gleichsam ein frühes Zeugnis anti-rassistischer Bildungsarbeit, da hier Fragen einer antirassistischen Pädagogik bearbeitet werden, so wie sie Maria Do Mar Castro Varela und Birgit Jagusch auch für eine geschlechtergerechte und antirassistische Jugendarbeit formulieren: Es geht dabei darum, wie die Mechanismen der Konstruktion von Zugehörigkeit und Ausgrenzung funktionieren und welche Möglichkeiten es gibt, der beständigen Reproduktion von gleich und anders zu entgehen.

The British actor Peter Bull returned from a visit to Greece in 1962 obsessed with a desire to build a house on one of the remoter Ionian Islands. It appeared on his shopping list constantly. 'Buy cauliflower, string, scotch tape, and a bit of land on Paxos.' By 1964 he had achieved this and It isn't all Greek to Me is a hilarious account of his life there and in 'To Spiti Mou (My House)'. Readers of Mr Bull's earlier work need have no fear that he has delved deep into the mythology or history of Greece. He has just transferred to another country his talent for being unable to take anything very seriously. His difficulties with the language, the water situation and some of the eccentric people he has met there are dealt with lightly and touchingly and the happiness that he has got from the experience glows from every page.

I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't)

Making the Journey from "What Will People Think?" to "I Am Enough"

Researcher, thought leader, and New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown offers a liberating study on the importance of our imperfections—both to our relationships and to our own sense of self The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what and how we’re supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. Dr. Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, is the leading authority on the power of vulnerability, and has inspired thousands through her top-selling books Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, and The Gifts of Imperfection, her wildly popular TEDx talks, and a PBS special. Based on seven years of her ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we’re all in this together. Dr. Brown writes, “We need our lives back. It’s time to reclaim the gifts of imperfection—the courage to be real, the compassion we need to love ourselves and others, and the connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives.” From the Trade Paperback edition.
