On the first page of the article The Oppositional Gaze by bell hooks, she is making a connection between how as a child she was punished for gazing (starring) and how white slave owners punished their slaves for looking as well. This denying individuals the right to gaze is in relationship to one another. On the bottom of the first page hooks writes, "the ways power as domination reproduces itself in different locations employing similar apparatuses, strategies, and mechanisms of control"(hooks,307). With this said, is hooks comparing the distribution of control of the white slave owners power over blacks gaze to parents power over their childs gaze? Anyway, I do agree with hooks quote, how domination of power and control reproduce itself. How core issues still exist but in more progressive forms in our society. Like slavery has progressed into the form of racism in America. Or some might say that globalization is the progressive form of slavery. Just some thoughts.
