Contents
Philosophy, theory and race. Not from some racial Zeus's head : my intellectual development. Textual acts and semiotic gestures : race, writing and technotopia. Baptizing theory, representing truth : religious discourse, poststructuralist theory and multiculturalism. More than academic : seamless theory, racial disruptions and public intellectuals in the ebony tower. Trump cards : racial paradigms, postcolonial theory and feminist thought. Giving whiteness a black eye : excavating white identities, ideologies and institutions. "Is it something I said?" : dissident speech, plantation Negro syndrome, and the politics of self-respect -- Cultural studies. Is postmodernism just modernism in drag? : Black identities in flux. The great next : jazz origins and the anatomy of improvisation. Black fists and sole brothers : the 1968 Olympics. Adjusting the color : television, race and culture. "I love Black people, but I hate niggas" : intellectuals, Black comedy and the politics of self-criticism -- Religious beliefs, theological arguments. "Searching for Black Jesus" : the Nietzschean quest of a metaphysical thug. "Speech is my hammer" : Black preaching, social justice and rap rhetoric. Ecstasy, excess and eschatology : Black religion in crisis. The anatomy of radical Christianity : tracing Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dangerous legacy. Prophetic Black Islamic ethics : Malcolm X, spiritual warfare and angry Black love. Homotextualities : the Bible, sexual ethics and the theology of homoeroticism
