Where is the Love? White Nationalist Discourse on Hip-HopWhere is the Love? White Nationalist Discourse on Hip-Hop
129 , 2017-10-01Palgrave Macmillan
Influenced by a professional interest in political hip-hop, expressions of nationalism, and sociolinguistic constructions of otherness, this chapter explores the discursive intersections of racialized identities as formulated around, and in response to, hip-hop culture. In contrast to several other chapters presented within this volume, the expressions of dissatisfaction and dissent showcased here come not through examination of lyrical content. Instead, discursive data is instead drawn from the discussion boards of Stormfront (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/), an online community dedicated to the promotion of white nationalism and white supremacy (De Koster and Houtman, 2008).
