it was amazing

Fanon remains one of my all time favorite writers. I was reading Blacks Skin, White Masks to compare how much things have really change in relation to the conditions of black people or people of color on a world scale. The only conclusion from reading this book is that the more things change the more they stay the same. Fanon had a deep insight into the psychological impact of racism and white supremacy on black people. In the case of South Africa black people remain a psychological minority , despite being a numerical majority. It is in this sense that the book remains timeless and a tool of emancipation for both black and white. This book explores the different dimensions of racism and the psychology of black people in a white supremacist world. The question of race is often a neglected aspect in the broader emancipation project of the people of the world. Black Skins White Masks remains an important contribution today in the struggle's of black people and people of color in their quest for a true humanity.
