996 Cultural Issues Race Black property ownership
3116 Cultural Issues Race Black incarceration
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

4636 Cultural Issues Race Behaving/becoming "black"

This tag is used when a white character's appearance or behavior is associated with "blackness." Examples: when Jason Compson says in The Sound and the Fury that Miss Quentin's promiscuous behavior means she is "acting like a nigger" (181) or when Vardaman Bundren notes how his brother Cash's injured foot and his brother Jewel's burned back are turning black, "like a nigger's foot" or back (224). The trope isn't simply descriptive: it implies a loss of status, a threat to one's racial identity.
