James Baldwin 11 : Who is the Nigger? or Reclaiming the Dream 2010

A short clip from “Take This Hammer” in which Baldwin throws the “nigger” back at whiteness who invented him in the first place. Very pertinent in these moments of escalating right wing anti-Muslim hatred – a hatred invented to fill a void of hate that must always be full. Without hate there is no one to blame, nothing to rally behind.
