ABSTRACT
This article proposes that the analytical category "racism" is not adequate to analyze the experiences of black people, either in Brazil or in the rest of the diaspora. By supposing that black experiences and non-black experiences are analogous and therefore commensurable, racism does not account for the uniqueness of black experiences. Indeed, black people occupy a unique position in the constitution of modern subjectivities. Constituting the opposing identities, in which humanity defines itself, the black person is simultaneously excluded from the human family and indispensable for the constitution of that same family. Antiblackness, unlike racism, accepts this proposition as a starting point and suggests that the fundamental dyad of the modern world is "black people/non-black people." This dyad suggests a planetary social world very different from that of racism. According to racism, the defining dyad of the planetary social world is "white people/non-white people".
