Fallen: O.J. Simpson, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the re-centering of white patriarchy
The authors examine two Time magazine cover images: O.J. Simpson, after his arrest for the murder of Nicole Brown, and Hillary Clinton during the Whitewater controversy, arguing that the Time covers function as a visual rhetoric, invoking myths central to Western culture. The photos naturalize deep, cultural myths which assert that black men and women of all colors are evil, thereby re-centering white masculinity.
