Summary
"In 1992 the U.S. media was treated to "conflict" between blacks and Asians during the Los Angeles uprising. The event crystallized white-supremacist stereotypes of blacks as the "problem" minority and Asians as the "model."" "In this work, historian Vijay Prashad refuses to engage the typical racial discussion that matches people of color against each other while institutionalizing the primacy of the white majority. Instead he examines more than five centuries of remarkable historical evidence of cultural and political interaction between blacks and Asians around the world, in which they have exchanged cultural and religious symbols, appropriated personas and lifestyles, and worked together to achieve political change. From the Shivites of Jamaica, who introduced Ganja and dreadlocks to the Afro-Jamaicans; to Ho Chi Minh the Garveyite; to Japanese-American Richard Aoki, a charter member of the Black Panthers, African- and Asian-derived movements and cultures, like all others, have been porous rather than discrete."--BOOK JACKET
