America’s white ideology is certainly under threat by African American blackvoices. The Bluest Eye by Morrison shows the dimensions of and resistances to the dominant discourse of America’s white bourgeois system. This study focuses on the point of disagreement between new historicism and cultural materialism that is the outcome of resistances to the dominant discourse/ideology. New historicists tend to pessimistically look forward for the evidences of containment and cooption of resistances within the dominant discourse, while, on the other hand, cultural materialism concentrates on the action itself that is the resistance without prejudging an outcome for it. The outcome of black resistances to the white ideology and the effects of America’s dominant discourse on the black way of life will be studied according to new historicism and cultural materialistic mode of thinking.
