For a time it looked as though racism had disappeared. This soul-soothing, unreal impression was simply the consequence of the evolution of forms of exploitation. Psychologists spoke of a prejudice having become unconscious. The truth is that the rigor of the system made the daily affirmation of a superiority superfluous. The need to appeal to various degrees of approval and support, to the native’s cooperation, modified relations in a less crude, more subtle, more “cultivated” direction. It was not rare, in fact, to see a “democratic and humane” ideology at this stage. The commercial undertaking of enslavement, of cultural destruction, progressively gave way to a verbal mystification.

The interesting thing about this evolution is that racism was taken as a topic of meditation, sometimes even as a publicity technique.

Thus the blues—”the black slave lament”—was offered up for the admiration of the oppressors.

symbolic interactionism

people walk from one destination to another
with looks of determination on their faces they stare at me
and they say ‘where the fuck are you going’
I say ‘I am going to a place’
they say ‘fuck you’
and I have an intense feeling of being a
pathetic asshole
and that feeling manifests itself in the form of
frantic unrestrained
movement

I begin to realize that my face will never be
inside of your face
and that we can silently communicate using a
series of microscopic gestures

and we will understand that the phrase ‘alone
together’ is not an
oxymoron anymore

and I will resolve to never be happy enough to
forgive you
and I promise that from now on I will only
have emotions that can be perceived as neutral

I wonder how it is possible that there are
billions of people in the world
yet I am the only person on the planet

New York Times: How do you rank yourself among writers (living) and of the immediate past?

Vladimir Nabokov: I often think there should exist a special typographical sign for a smile — some sort of concave mark, a supine round bracket, which I would now like to trace in reply to your question.

  A 1969 interview in which Nabokov invents the emoticon, quoted in Luke Stark and Kate Crawford’s The Conservatism of Emoji
