The Walking Dead is one of the leading Television Shows of all times. But have you realize there are a couple of incidents where racial discrimination of black have been explored in the show?

One of the words which is regarded as a highly discriminatory word is 'Nigger'. Even saying this word is highly prohibited in the White House and all parts of America but in the latter seasons of the Television Show, the writers of the show introduced a group of annihilators who referred to themselves as 'Negan'. The word 'nigger' was first corrupted to 'Niga' and then 'Nigan' to refer to a member of the group with their leader also known as Negan.

 Even before colonialism, the 'white man' claimed the black race were supposed to belong to an inferior race which had to be enlightened by the white man. Because of this and other misconceptions that Africa is a 'dark continent' established by the white man, the black race were exploited through slavery for many centuries.

The blacks were depicted by the white man as people who only knows how to destroy everything in their path even if there is no reason to destroy it. 'Nigger' was an offensive word which Americans used to refer to the blacks and after so many petitions and protests by the blacks was banned and highly prohibited in the United States.

 In order to divert attention and make it an open case, the popular 'Negan' group was introduced and this group main roles was to destroy everyone and everything around them which also depicts the misconception by the white man that the black race are barbarians. Everyone who watched the Television Show will confirm to the destructive activities which the Negan group indulge and supported.

 After the Negan group members were exterminated and their leader was captured by Rick Grimes and his group, Negan was put in a cell in a form of punishment and in order to be 'turned'. This also represents the methods employed by the colonialists during the colonial times where the blacks where subjected in places to be 'educated' because the white man claimed then that because the black race belong to an inferior race it was the white man's burden to Educate, Civilise and Christianize the black race.

 Officer Rick Grimes and his group represented the white man who deemed themselves as 'righteous' and 'civilized' race. Their roles were to correct the wrong doings and eliminate the Negan group which also show how the white man claims that they enlightened Africans who had no history and removed their 'uncivilized' ways of life. 

 If you're a big fan of the show, you will discover the vast contradiction between the Rick Grimes group and the Negan group and you will see that there are even more instances of ways the Negan group wreaked things which showed the depiction of the white man ideologies of the black race and the name given to such group that carries out these activities.
