Other than that totally trivial observation, it beats me what Derrida has really said or contributed to the world of intellectual thought. Indeed, I would term Derrida's work philosophizing for the lazy intellectual. 'Lazy' because a good analysis based on mathematics and statistics would resolve these 'binary oppositions' that Derrida talks about. If there were "binary opposition"s and they were a construction of the "West", then how could the same sort of analytical tools that are used in the "West" are also effective in the "East" - e.g. in countries like India and China?
Here is an example. For a multi-racial person like Obama, a statement like "blacks in America are poor while the whites are rich" would be understandable. But a comment like "Ninja please" would be doubly hard to cognitively process because he has taken a lot of pains to get out of the very stereotypes about blacks that people often label them with. But then again, at the end of the day, they may attribute his success to his being not entirely black and therefore "accceptable" to everyone. But there is nothing special going on -cognitively- in the mind of Obama. There is no specific hard-to-resolve "binary opposition". It is simply the case that statements like "blacks in America are poor while whites are rich" are statistical observations. Also, there is a lot of not-very-nice people in the world. That is about the only conclusions one can draw from these comments. There is no reason to believe that there are "binary oppositions" out there waiting to be pounced upon by the cruel, unfeeling world.
