R. Boxer, The Portuguese Seaborne Empire, 1415–1825. 4. Mary Louise Pratt, Imperial Eyes: Travel Writing and Transculturation, 5; Bhabha, “Other Question,” 41. ”5 This section of the chapter examines some of the ways in which Zurara’s chronicle, in recording an early instance of exploration-associated plunder, trade, and capital accumulation, prior to colonization proper, labels blacks and other colonized people as inferior, under various rubrics, and articulates a justification for their subjection, thereby setting a discursive precedent for subsequent colonial writing.

Not surprisingly, as Gilroy comments, parties and other forms of leisure and recreation in the black communities were demonized and represented in mainstream media in terms of vice and hedonism. ”25 Not surprisingly also, the “crisis in national identity” in contemporary France, according to cultural critic Julia Kristeva, herself an immigrant, is also directly associated with the immigration flow from non-European sources that responded to the national labor shortage after 1945. The postwar influx into France from the Magreb, sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia soon overcame native levels of tolerance, notwithstanding the French universalist ethic and the “blood tax” previously paid by soldiers from the colonies through their participation in the two great wars.

These include the idea of the happy black slave and the notion that blacks are unaffected by the tropical heat and are thus perfectly suited by nature for slave labor. The proposal carries the trace of the proslavery argument that held that blacks were better off in civilized Brazil as slaves than they were as savages in heathen Africa, or that their condition was preferable to that of many in the European working class. 33 Writing in 1933, Freyre would clearly have been under its influence. The inability or reluctance to recognize pain and suffering in the subordinated racial Other is a cornerstone of the racist outlook, as Mills has observed; in The Masters and the Slaves, it is a discursive constant.
