This essay explores how body politics embody in Toni Morrisons novels, The Bluest Eye, Beloved, and Home. Morrison delineates black people as the victim of racial ideology or white supremacy. She postulates that blacks are the victim of body politics by white people in American history as a means to their political and ideological end. As Morrison puts it, blacks are people marked because of their skin color in America, I try to elucidate her novels in terms of body politics. There is negative body politics victimized by white supremacy through her works. In her first novel, The Bluest Eye, she portrays black body as a victim of racial prejudice by white people. She also depicts body politics of black people by whites slavocracy in Beloved, her representative novel. In her recent novel, Home can be also read the text of black body politics of war and eugenics under the white supremacy. At the same time, she suggests solutions of positive body politics including communal ethics and blacks responsibility and identity. Describing herself as an egalitarian, Morrison provides insight into an egalitarian hybrid society based on tolerance by embodying negative body politics by white people and positive body politics by black people.
