Famous quotes containing the word fanon:

    Collective guilt is borne by what is conventionally called the scapegoat. Now the scapegoat for white society—which is based on myths of progress, civilization, liberalism, education, enlightenment, refinement—will be precisely the force that opposes the expansion and the triumph of these myths. This brutal opposing force is supplied by the Negro.
    —Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)

    I am black: I am the incarnation of a complete fusion with the world, an intuitive understanding of the earth, an abandonment of my ego in the heart of the cosmos, and no white man, no matter how intelligent he may be, can ever understand Louis Armstrong and the music of the Congo.
    —Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)

    However painful it may be for me to accept this conclusion, I am obliged to state it: for the black man there is only one destiny. And it is white.
    —Frantz Fanon (1925–1961)
