2948 Cultural Issues Race Black family working for white
5413 Cultural Issues Race Black foresight

Any time a black character appears to have a premonition or intuition about how events will play out. I'm thinking her of Job in "Uncle Willy" who melancholically tags along even though he knows things will end badly. The same could be said for any number of Black servants who are forced to entertain their master's fancies. Dilsey is another example. JB

615 Cultural Issues Race Hierarchical
1346 Cultural Issues Race Imaginary Negro men
5415 Cultural Issues Race Indistinguishable

Whenever a white and black character cannot be distinguished from one another, or when a white character looks black and vice versa. I'm thinking here of Uncle Willy and Secretary in the plane in "Uncle Willy", "Uncle Willy and Secretary side by side and looking exactly alike, I don't mean in the face but exactly alike two tines of a garden fork look exactly alike before they chop into the ground" (244). JB

4167 Cultural Issues Race Inequalities

Created to capture the pervasive patterns of difference caused by race - specifically, that the white hunters in "Race at Morning" carry good guns while Simon carries an old "britchloader slung on a piece of plow line" (298). Could also be used to capture what Bayard calls the "arrangements" between him and Ringo, etc. SR

1802 Cultural Issues Race Integration
4590 Cultural Issues Race Inverting a stereotype
5312 Cultural Issues Race Jewish

This is listed under cultural identity and ethnic identity, but in "Death Drag" it is very clear that this is a racial difference. The text states, "When he came up the spectators saw that he, like the limping man, was also a Jew. That is, they knew at once that two of the strangers were of a different race from themselves, without being able to say what the difference was" (188). Not sure if it makes to consolidate with the other forms of identifying Jewishness. JHB

The informal names given to people of another race, especially African-Americans. In particular, names like "Uncle" or "Mammy" stand out here. This is a bit distinct from "Naming slavery" as these practices post-date enslavement. JB

1600 Cultural Issues Race Native American

I added this in addition to the more specific Indian tribal identifications because I thought that it would be useful to have a larger umbrella term for users searching for Faulkner's Native American material. LW
