Title: Aint that the Truth Ruth : Historic to Contemporary Views of Black Men and Homosexuality


1
Aint that the Truth Ruth! Historic to
Contemporary Views of Black Men and Homosexuality
  • McCall, Josh, and Nora
  • May 4, 2009

2
ICE BREAKER!!!
  • REALLY QUICKLY
  • RAISE YOUR HAND AND STATE THE FIRST THING THAT
    COMES INTO YOUR HEAD WHEN WE SAY
  • BLACK
  • HOMOSEXUAL
  • MEN

3
What if?
  • We said BLACK HOMOSEXUAL MEN?
  • What is the response then?

Appropriating Blackness
  • Given Cleavers credentials, who could compete
    with his black or masculine authenticity?
    According to this logic, criminality, misogyny,
    sexism, and a general hatred of white
    establishment are the tenets of black masculinity
    and black authenticity. (52)

5
By Contrast
  • The association of homosexuality with disease and
    whiteness stems sponse to it. To the the extent
    that homosexuality is equated with effeminacy or
    the feminine and whiteness with homosexuality,
    and given surprising that Cleavers own admission
    of misogyny (Ive been a rapist), it is not
    surprising that Cleavers invective positions
    James Baldwin and black homosexuals in general as
    self-hating, effeminate pawns of white men.

CLUTCH MY PEARLS!!!!!

  • This parody stereotypes all gays as queeny and
    promiscuous addition to perpetuating the myth
    that all gay men are woman haters. (68)

BREAKING THE MOLD
  • It is even more interesting to note that
    Cleavers definition of homosexuality is almost
    always couched in interracialist terms. He
    conflates interracial homosocial envy (i.e. the
    black man wanting what the white man has) with
    homosexual desire, as if to suggest that same-sex
    desire can only occur within an interracial
    context.
