The Difficult to understand Racial Philosophy of Denise Ferreira da Silva ( UCLA/SD ) - US Constitution without Blacks - Brazilian Race, critique of Mestizos
I admire this Black Lady, Dr Denise Ferreira da Silva, Professor at the University of California at San Diego.
Her books and articles on Race, Racism and Raciality are extremely interesting and I am persuaded that there are many gold nuggets of Great Value to be found. This lady raises the most extreme and tough questions on Race.
Unfortunately there are many quotes of Great Famous Philosophers and other Racial Historians who are unknown to me and to most people.
This Lady Professor tries to explain such tough subjects as why the U. S. Constitution seems to exclude Blacks as not belonging to the Human Race. Remember that there were decisions of the U. S. Supreme Court in the Nineteen Century in which Blacks were not humans, or citizens, or whatever, and excuse, please my ignorance.
Dr Denise is "Black" and Brazilian and she doesn't seem to love the Racial History of Brazil.
It seems that the Black Race was appropiated for sexuality in Brazil, the female body, for the plantation owner. And so the mestizo was born, a shrewd strategy to avoid conflict ??? ( my question ).
The problem for Dr Denise with the mestizo, is that it is molded for Whiteness and for White values. Probably in Beauty contests, they approve some beautiful dark or brown skin, but select for White Features. You understand what I say, they want people that are not Milk-White but that have a trend or tendency to Whiteness, in Psychology and in Physical Presence.
Dr Denise thinks that the Brazilians want to produce a new race that ends the Blacks or Africans. And in which the White Psychological and Physical Values predominate.
All this is immersed in difficult philosophy and I don't reject it because of the difficulty. Who said that Gold Mining was easy !
I have to operate my site RACIALITY.COM and Dr Denise refers a lot to the word "Raciality", perhaps she wants to find a new term that carries a lot of meaning for the study of Legal Matters about Race, Philosophical matters about Race, History of Race, etc .... and the word "Racism" is no longer appropriate. So she loads the word "Raciality" with a lot of Historic, Legal and Philosophical difficulties and meanings. ( that is only my poor guess ! )
