A text regarding a psychopathic individual and the laws that determine interracial relations in a fictional contemporary slave society where he lives, runs over darkened footage of a person cleaning a kitchen. The text elaborates on the history of the society's racial laws and the life and psychopathic crimes of the individual, who is classified as a subaltern masculinity, an 'hybrid'. The letters placed within box brackets in the running text function as racial and social categories that make differences of status between social groups integral to the fabric of language.
