Arguing that structure, as a cultured perform, and blackness, as a linguistic perform, function in the related semiotic paradigm, Darell Fields employs a method wherein works are similar during the repetition and revision in their semiotic constructions. Fields reconstructs the family tree of a black racial topic, represented through the simultaneous examining of a number canonical texts from Hegel to Saussure to Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
