Social ties are not established by culture, but through “an identity of passion.” With an extensive analysis of the transcontinental “passions”—referring to the encompassing compliance to postcolonial subjectivity—is the opposing relationship of the discursive regimes: a hegemonic, imperialist, European-based dissertation characterized by discriminations about the black race; an anti-colonialist, African-oriented contrasting discourse focused on cultural independence and non-submission to Eurocentric principles; and a promising, luminal, integrative discussion against colonialism and subsequent to Afrocentrism. All of these complexes concentrate on the activity of thinking difference, which can only be explicitly or implicitly explained using the cultural identity and diversity paradigms that are either expressive (together with their unrecognized ethnocentric discriminations) or performative (dealing with inter-culturally flexible self-evaluative processes and methods).
