-Baldwin believed America has a white problem
-Baldwin resisted being classified into a section or group
-where my risk would be more personal and my fate had been more sealed; meaning,
knew that by staying the U.S he would be classifies as a black American writer so he took
a risk by not just writing in the U.S but outside of it in Paris
-he could be judged for who he is and his talent; that is an enormous risk to take
-Now in Paris he is judged as an American so his plan failed
-but this impacted him because he begins to think about what it is to be an American
-found that French culture was very structured; everyone had a certain status
-America wasn’t worse than France; it wasn’t worse than other places
-he fooled himself that oppression was specific to the American society, however it was
everything
-he couldn’t find himself outside of the U.S which was the cruellest trick (it was an error
on his part)
-there were 2 ways of being drafted into the army
1. Secure the status of conscientious objector (a person who maintains that his conscious
does not allow him to bare arms). Humanist (moral) views prevented involvement in the
war
2. Fail the medical exam (some people starved themselves)
