The following guides emphasize information that can be used to stimulate thinking about cultural differences and prompt questions that will help providers understand how their patients identify with and express their cultural backgrounds.These are not fact lists to apply indiscriminately.And then I turn to new words that refer to the changing relationship between men and women at this time.As discussed in the book Dewdroppers, Waldos, and Slackers: A decade-by-decade guide to the vanishing vocabulary of the twentieth century (Ostler) there were a number of new terms for women in the 1920s, which reflected the news ways in which they were being viewed by others in society.He was 32 and well into his career before his mother revealed to him that the man he knew as his father wasn’t and that his real dad was a black man.When Darnell Martin produced “I Like It Like That” in 1994, she was the first black woman to write and direct a film for a major Hollywood studio.There are a number of these terms that must have been really colloquial and maybe even localized, because they aren't found at all in the 400 million word COHA corpus, and are quite rare in even the 155 billion word Google Books corpus.
In the sections that follow, I first look at some of the (slang) terms that were new in the 1920s, which were used to describe these new women.
On July 1949,the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act, Act No 55 of 1949 that prohibited marriage or a sexual relationship between White people and people of other race groups in South Africa is passed.
The law was introduced by the apartheid government and part of its overall policy of separateness.
Using these categories, the apartheid government proceeded to criminalise marriages between people of different racial groups.
Subsequent to the passing of this legislation, a number of people were arrested and charged for breaking its provisions.
Race politics can be complicated and bi-racial stars often find themselves on one side of the Hollywood divide.
