Black Skins, White Mask by Frantz Fanon "Some men or some women, in effect, by choosing partners of another race, marry persons of a class or a culture inferior to their own race and who chief asset seems to be the assurance that the partner will achieve denaturalization and (to use a loathsome word) "deracialization." Among certain people of color, the fact that they are marrying someone of the white race seems to have overridden every other consideration." I was simply struck by the truthfulness of this statement. He also talks about black women. However, in the AA community, sistahs have never been fascinated with white men. So I can't relate to the black women he is talking about. I also was struck by his writings on blacks and the language. He absolutely hits the nail on the head. I am only half way through the book. I think it is an excellent read. He just generally talks about the psychological affects of colonized, colored people of the world, specifically, people of African descent. Though he focuses on his on nation, the island of Martinique, a French colony, the behavior is quite typical for many colonized or subjugated people. Contents Chap.
