Abstract

Dealing with African American study, especially on literary works involving white and black characters, discussing “who writes about whom” is always interesting. As people’s point of view on black today, especially in America, is different from the way it used to be, this study is trying to find how white authors today write on black and white characters. The New City by Stephen Amidon is chosen for this purpose. This study will start the analysis on the ideology of the text through representation of the characters: black versus white. In this novel, black significant characters are presented as good: civilized, educated, and manly, while the bad images—lesscivilized, childish, and villain—mostly goes to the white main characters. It seems that this work is trying to reverse the stereotype of the black characters and, even, exchanges the addressee of the binary opposition proposed for white and black
