Deconstruction, Fetishism, and the Racial Contract: On the Politics of "Faking It" in Music

CR 7 (1):45-80 (2007)
Abstract
I read Sara Kofman's work on Nietzsche, Charles Mills' _The Racial Contract_, and Kodwo Eshun's Afrofuturist musicology to argue that most condemnations of "faking it" in music rest on a racially and sexually problematic fetishization of "the real."
