Newspeak word, plus one of pillars of Ingsoc. Like many Newspeak words, it has two contradictory definitions. In an optimistic sense, it means somebody who can think that black is white, or that two plus two creates five, in the event that Party wishes it. In the bad sense, it means someone who feels that black is white when it is obviously not (for example. as long as the celebration does not want it to be). A white person who tans or uses so much self-tanner that their skin appears to be compared to a black individuals.
