“One and the Same Interest”

Antiblack Racism and Colonial Domination with and without Hegemony

(p.124) 4 “One and the Same Interest”
Black and White Manhattan


Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that the disciplinary mechanism of antiblack racism became a key instrument of governance in colonial New York City. It notes that New York City's Slave Revolt of 1712 was the act of unculturated native Africans and other slaves, who from their own distinctive worldviews, regarded colonial New York's institution of slavery as an unjust social relation. It demonstrates the specter of interracial sexual desire, especially in households where slave owners and their families lived under the same roof with black Africans.

Keywords:   antiblack racism, hegemony, New York City, slavery, Africans, 1712 Slave Revolt
