Frantz Fanon February 11, 2009 Surprisingly I read Black Skin White Masks in two days. I had heard that this was a difficult book to read and understand but I did not have any trouble with it. Mr. Fanon did use plenty of medical terminologies however they could be understood within the context of the sentence. I did wish that Mr. Fanon had gone more into why certain African Americans were Expatriates in Paris during the 1920s to the 1950s. If France was so racist and biased as he state in his book why would Josephine Baker, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker choose to live there. I also wished he had included his thoughts on The Harlem Renaissance and writer Zora Neale Hurston. Monday, April 20, 2009 Excellent book. Some say his books are difficult to read but despite some of the medical/psychiatric terminologies he was always on point and what he writes is still relevant in today's world. He is a fantastic writer whose analogies and stories resonant with the 21st century reader. I look forward to reading his other books.

An absolutely must read for anyone of any race - it's not just for the black revolutionary. It's a well reasoned book with a clear understanding of black identity. For any minority struggling between assimilation and integration, this book puts things in perspective and hopefully helps make the non-minorities irrelevant in determining personal worth. For non-minorities, I hope it enlightens about history, emotion, and psyche. For all its polarizing passages, it ends on a hopeful message.
