from Black skinn, white masks

Frantz Fanon

I hope I have shown that here the master differs basically from the master described by Hegel. For Hegel there is reciprocity; here the master laughs at the consciousness of the slave. What he wants from the slave is not recognition but work.

In the same way, the slave here is in no way identifiable with the slave who loses himself in the object and finds in his work the source of his liberation.

The Negro wants to be like the master.

In Hegel the slave turns away from the master and turns toward the object.

Here the slave turns toward the master and abandons the object.
