(The Isley brothers). It was created in Detroit, and Motown stands for “motor city.” Trying to cultivate black celebrities in the United States. III. Confronting the “black rapist” image- This is a long standing image in the American culture that dates back to the nineteenth century. Richard Wright wrote a novel called “Native Son” that described the social pressures of a black man that turn him into a rapist. In the 1950s, the idea of the black rapists started being rejected, and the idea of the white woman seducing the black man emerges. A. Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal”- Uses a blonde stripper as a symbol as mainstream American culture. Uses this to position the black man as wanting the white woman, which is what society says should happen. It is a double bind of him wanting and not wanting the white woman.
