noun ( sometimes lowercase )
the doctrine or advocacy of equal rights for blacks.
a quality or manner, as a speech pattern or pronunciation, considered characteristic of blacks.
"For the white man to ask the black man if he hates him is just like the rapist asking the raped, or the wolf asking the sheep, ‘Do you hate me?’ The white man is in no moral position to accuse anyone else of hate! “Why, when all of my ancestors are snake-bitten, and I’m snake-bitten, and I warn my children to avoid snakes, what does that snake sound like accusing me of hate-teaching?"
