I completely agree with the psychiatrist Frantz Fanon on colonization. All the years of schooling and recieving an education in the United States all our history books have told us that Christopher Columbus came and discovered the “America’s” in 1492 and we were all taught that England was our motherland and we were colonized by these Europeans countries, we also have learned about the Alantic slave trade, the slavery and segregation within our own nation and all the oppession that minorities have faced due to white supremacy throughout centuries. I am absolutely disgusted with what colonization has done to people psychologically, emotionally, and the double consciousness it has forced people to live with forever. Due to colonization which was basically European countries taking over others people’s land then either slaughtering them like was done with the Native Americans or just plainly taking them as slaves and dehumanizing them as was did with the African people have just degraded them as people. Unfortunately the effects of this is still seen today. We are currently in the year 2013 and I saw on the news that in Tennessee for the first time high school students were gonna have an integrated prom seriously this shocked me I couldn’t believe this was actually still napping and that people in this century could seriously be that ignorant and racist. These are the permanent scars and effects of colonialism.
