In historical manner, racialization in every generation has shaped their own identities with opposition and resistance and is a forever changing concept in viewpoints, conflicts, and redefinition. Third, voice against dominant opinions is an effective way to notice how the structures, processes, and practices continue to provide racial inequality. This makes the critical race theory effective for the narratives and stories from the viewpoints of those persecuted. It is a political expression of power relationships and minority perspectives challenge the account from dominant groups. Critical race theorists say the beliefs of master narratives are not objective but are chosen to be by others.

Although slavery and segregation have been abolished and deemed illegal, racism is still a major issue in today’s society. In Claudia Rankines, Citizen: An American Lyric, she explores racism in a unique way. She takes situations that happen on a daily basis, real life tragedies and acts in the media to analyze and bring awareness to the subtle and not so subtle forms of racism. While reading Citizen, people may interpret Rankine’s use of different pronouns as a way to detach herself from the situations so she wouldn’t come across as biased or one sided.

In the late nineteenth century really hits on this idea, not only on immigration laws but also the impression of prostitution and Venereal Disease. According to the book, “Race Over Empire: Racism and U.S. Imperialism, 1865-1900,” by Eric T. Love, talks about how race has moved, shaped, and inspired the late-nineteenth-century U.S.
In the contemporary era, the issue of race remains a prevalent topic in public discussion. Thus, Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad is meaningful as it explores the legacy of racial injustice in the United States and its consequences in today’s society. In his development of the underground railroad as a literal and physical vehicle to freedom, Whitehead is able to candidly detail the ubiquitous nature of racial prejudice and the horrors associated with it. Over the course of his novel, the author utilizes a variety of rhetorical devices in order to further explore the many hardships that ‘freedom’ inevitably entails. In particular, Whitehead’s use of imagery, character interactions and figurative language brings to attention aspects of race relations that were and are still often misunderstood or disregarded by society.
