Pedro Bell on the importance of a visual concept as a band.

“If you have have group that has a concept that’s visual, people will buy the product,” [Pedro Bell] said. Groups like Mandrill and The Undisputed Truth were impressive, but didn’t have the longevity of Funkadelic because they lacked a coherent (literal) vision of themselves, and the world they were creating. “If you want to survive, you better have some visual concept, and if you really want to survive you better have more than that.”

Stereotypes

The Mammy

The Mammy

The Mammy is “so closely related to the comic coons that she is usually relegated to their ranks. Mammy is distinguished, however, by her sex and her fierce independence. She is usually big, fat, and cantankerous.
— Donald Bogle, 2001

Identity politics

Identity (construct of…)

“Now part of what”…“I see as the problem is the idea of anybody’s having to fight the fragmentation and multicultural diversity of the world, not to mention outright oppression, by constructing something so rigid as an identity, an identity in which there has to be a fixed and immobile core, a core that is structured to hold inviolate such a complete biological fantasy as race— whether white or black”  —Samuel R. Delany, interviewed by Mark Dery, 1994
