The Context of White Supremacy hosts the debut study session on Frantz Fanon’s 1961 landmark book, The Wretched of the Earth. Born in Martinique in 1925, Fanon became a world renown psychiatrist and devoted much of his time and energy to Algerian independence from French colonial rule. He also wrote Black Skin, White Mask, which is a psychoanalysis of the perversions and neurosis of sexual activity between Whites and non-white people. Interestingly, Fanon himself was married to a White woman. The writer and psychiatrist died from leukemia the same year The Wretched of the Earth was published. Fanon’s last work is widely regarded as an “indictment of the violence and savagery of colonialism” against non-white people world wide. The book examines the violence necessary to maintain a global empire of racism and the merits of counter-violence as means of permanently solving this problem. Large numbers of Whites lavish praise on Fanon’s work, many college courses include this book on their syllabus. We’ll question why this work appeals to many suspected Race Soldiers.
