Racial binaries and the emergence of postcolonial voices
Author(s): Dr. Debabhuson Borah
Abstract: The issue of race plays a significant role in the discourse of Postcolonialism. Racial prejudice was one of the key substances in the ideology of colonialism where many things had been looked upon basically in terms of racial binary. Several postcolonial writers, more or less, tried to question such racial myths. In fact, one reason for which they started raising their voices was the racial discrimination. An attempt is made in this paper to examine how racial binary was dominant in European colonial framework and how it in turn influenced the postcolonial writers to raise their voices.
