Download E-books Peau Noire, Masques Blancs (French Edition) PDF

By Frantz Fanon

Fanon à 27 ans lorsqu’il publie Peau noire, Masques blancs en 1952. Dans l. a. nomenclature des couleurs – qui se décline en dizaine de sous-catégories raciales dans les sociétés matters de l. a. colonisation française – l’auteur qu’il n’est pas encore est probablement sous le choc lorsqu’il découvre que, sorti de sa Martinique, où l’expression du racisme est plus diffuse, son identité (dit) de Mulâtre ne le protégeait pas du racisme grossier qui, dans son will pay, était généralement dirigé contre les (dits) Noirs. C’est ainsi que Fanon va s’activer à l. a. fois dans los angeles stigmatisation sans concession de ce racisme brutal qui lui fait l’effet d’un tremblement de terre, et dans l. a. déconstruction/reconstruction de sa ‘’nouvelle’’ identité de Noir. Dès les premières lignes de son advent, l’on perçoit l’état de pressure dans lequel il se trouve : « De partout m’assaillent et tentent de s’imposer à moi des dizaines et des centaines de pages ». Il réfère à une explosion qui n’aura pas lieu, à des choses à dire sur le ton de los angeles sérénité et non pas à crier ; à l. a. nécessité de répondre calmement ; sans cependant réussir à ne pas stigmatiser autant les imbéciles qu’il trouve en trop grand nombre sur terre…» Si l’utilité de Peau noire, Masques blancs reste avérée, c’est par son caractère public qu’il doit l’être, pour renseigner notamment ceux qui n’auront jamais l’occasion de vivre l’expérience du racisme de peau, pour comprendre à quel aspect il est destructeur… l. a. critique du racisme entreprise par Fanon reste d’une étonnante actualité. Lui qui disait déjà que le racisme « n’est pas un tout mais l’élément le plus noticeable, le plus quotidien (…), le plus grossier d’une constitution donnée ». most unlikely donc d’y faire sans une compréhension radicale du système de creation du culturel et de l’économique. Tel est le sens de l’engagement et de l’immense œuvre de Fanon qui, à 36 ans, s’en alla pour un repos paisible en ayant pris soin…d’accomplir sa challenge.
