DECONSTRUCTING RACISM: A STUDY OF JESMYN WARD’S SING, UNBURIED SING WITH REFERENCE TO CRITICAL RACE THEORY
The current research deals with the concept of racism that has been deconstructed with reference to Dr. Pierce’s concept and theoretical discussion on racism in his critical race theory. He endorses racism is a marginalizing tool that has been used by the white supremacist against the non-western to marginalize them. Therefore, the current research deals with the elements of deconstructing the concept and idea of racism in Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied Sing which has explicitly shown the marginalization of black people and how the stances of racism are explicit in the novel to oppress and marginalize the black people, even to present them as other as shown in Edward Said’s Orientalism. Therefore, the current research is revisiting the elements of racism in the selected text and deconstructing the already presented concept of racism as shown in the novel.
