Abstract

This research analyzes about how racial equality was achieved by an Indian who named Arnold Spirit, Jr. from white people. This study used social identity theory and post colonialism. The researcher found some of the data required about achieving racial equality. This research uses qualitative descriptive method in analyzing the novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (2007) which written by a Spokane Indian, Sherman Alexie. The data collected in the study was gained through narration and dialogue in the novel. By analyzing the elements of power and the inferior (subaltern), the results show that hegemony happens will have an impact on the emergence of the issue of racism. As described by the author himself as the main character, Arnold showed resistance because of the presence of inequality as well as colonization which caused slumped the Indians on reservations. By making social mobility, he moved to the Reardan and struggled to break through limitations in the white group as well as gaining a better life. Although in the end he had to be in a position where he was ambivalent to unify two different cultures to survive the differences in both. Penelitian ini menganalisis tentang bagaimana kesetaraan ras di dapat dalam perjalanan Arnold Spirit, Jr. karya penulis Indian Spokane, Sherman Alexie. Penelitian ini menggunakan teori identitas sosial dan post-kolonialisme. Peneliti menemukan beberapa data yang dibutuhkan dalam mencapai kesetaraan ras. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode deskriptif kualitatif dalam menganalisis novel tersebut yang berjudul The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (2007). Data yang dikumpulkan dalam penelitian didapat melalui narasi serta dialog dalam novel. Dengan menganalisa unsur kekuasaan dan kaum inferior (subaltern), ditemukan hasil bahwa hegemoni yang terjadi akan berdampak pada timbulnya isu rasisme. Sebagai mana yang digambarkan oleh penulis sendiri, Arnold sebagai karakter utama memperlihatkan resistensi karena mengetahui adanya ketimpangan serta kolonisasi yang menyebabkan terpuruknya kaum Indian di reservasi. Dengan melakukan mobilitas sosial, ia pindah ke Reardan dan berjuang untuk menembus batasan dalam kelompok kulit putih serta mendapatkan kehidupan yang lebih baik. Meski pada akhirnya ia harus berada dalam posisi yang ambivalen dimana ia menyatukan dua budaya yang berbeda untuk bertahan dari keberbedaan di keduanya.
