    Exclamation hello everybody!can someone have a look at the text to see if there is any mistakes?

    White Teeth is categorized as a black British novel and has even been qualified by some critics as ‘‘the first black British novel of the millennium’’1 since it was published in 2000. However, Smith refuses such classification, and harshly condemns labelling. Kureishi, too, has often criticised labelling and categorisation.
    Some of the themes that their novels raise are related to those of the early works by Black and Asian postcolonial writers, such as feelings of displacement, elements of racial discrimination, questions of belonging, and identity.

    They occupy liminal positions that allow them to place themselves both within and outside the many cultures, histories and traditions they explore in their fiction. Thus, it is not surprising to see that most British postcolonial writers locate their narratives in districts of London. They write at the center of the ex- British empire, which has become predominantly non-white or of mixed ethnicity.

    Furthermore, the last point of my study on Memmi’s analysis examines how we must deal with differences, how we must learn to love and respect them and that is exactly what Kureishi and Smith bring about in their novels:up

    Thank u so much !
