Is it a sort of "torture porn" for those who'd like to read about Europeans being whipped and raped for once?

The punctuation style in Blonde Roots is conventional, unlike her later writing inspired by her poetry. It’s not fantasy, but nor has the historical timeline been smoothly switched, Evaristo does play with technological development and settings. Blonde Roots is full of literary and historical resonances, including aping pro-slavery `eye-witness accounts' of the civilising effects of slavery, and, most tellingly, Joseph Conrad's seminal novel about exploitation in Belgian Congo, Heart of Darkness (Penguin Classics) . Booker μάς παραδίδει ένα συγκλονιστικό βιβλίο καταδεικνύοντας τη δυσκολία επιβίωσης ατόμων που διαφέρουν με οποιονδήποτε τρόπο.Even when two slaves discover that they are from the same country, they do not speak their native language together - even when this is English. It's sort of kind of our world, except geography is randomly different (and I don't mean place names, but actual continents and stuff are not the same shape). unanimemente riconosciuto che la testa negroide presenta una fronte ampia e prominente, con una regione posteriore voluminosa e rotonda, accompagnata da quello che è stato definito prognatismo della mascella (mascella sporgente).

The title is amazing and I spent a long time thinking about it with all the implications, hidden and obvious.It reminded me somewhat of Body Ritual Among the Nacirema in its ability to dismantle our own cultural assumptions with the eye of the outside, and I couldn't help feeling that had the novel as a whole been writted in this vein, it would have been much harder-hitting. It is this that makes Blonde Roots more than just a clever satire on race and achieves what one presumes the author intended: to remind us that ‘us’ and ‘them’ could so easily have been reversed, and that regarding someone as less than fully human is the root of all tyranny. Some said that the guns the greedy aristocrats received in exchange for slaves encouraged them to start more wars just to meet the demand of the slave traders who wanted a yearly increase in exports.

Naturalmente, agli sceriffi la pelle bianka bastava e avanzava come pretesto per fermare un ragazzo e fargli una perquisizione integrale.He meets an Aphrikan who had gone native (along the lines of Conrad's Mr Kurtz) and describes entering `the Heart of Greyness' (p. Bernardine Evaristo always dares to be different ( New Nation ) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition. Are there still people who can't understand the horrors of slavery because it happened to Africans and not them?
