This paper briefly discusses the issues of white superiority over 'Blacks' in American history. It shows how "Stranger in the Village" is primarily a cry against racial discrimination. It examines the complex historical relationship between the "blacks" and "whites" - Black refers to the American Negroes and white refers to white men, the Americans, according to Baldwin.
From the Paper:"These Americans were originally discontented Europeans (Baldwin 1955) who came to the New World - which later became the North American continent - and found the Blacks there. These original settlers believed that they were morally destined to conquer this vast and great Continent and, out of necessity, had to reconcile the fact of Black slavery as part of that moral assumption of superiority, conquest and destiny. It has been more than 300 years since at Jamestown and the Negro has remained a slave, wrestling and fighting for his dignity, identity and freedom from his American master."
