The issue of black self-hatred is something I am supposed to pretend does not exist. However, the great French psychiatrist Frantz Fanon wrote about this issue in his groundbreaking book Black Skin White Masks, in a chapter called "the Lived Experience of the Black Man". According to Fanon, the black man is viewed in the third person, and he isn't seen as a three-dimensional human being. The black man internalizes the perspectives of white society and its negative thoughts about blackness affect his psyche. In the chapter, Fanon discusses a white child calling him the "N word" and how he becomes cognizant of how he is different and viewed as someone people should fear.
There is also a fear by some black people that discussing the issue of self-hatred is a sign of weakness. There is a discourse that black people engender: that black is beautiful. But the truth is, the image of blackness is ugly – at least it's perceived that way. There is nothing special or wonderful about being a black male – it is a life of misery and shame.
The issue of black self-hatred is usually depicted from a female point of view. There are documentaries such as Dark Girls which aired on Oprah's OWN network earlier this year, in which black women discuss their feelings of self hatred for having dark skin. There are numerous books, articles, documentaries, and essays published by black female writers describing black self-hatred. Black women are not afraid to speak out about their self-loathing, yet for some reason, black men are silent about our own contempt for what we are.

Kevin Quashie, Ph.D., was the guest lecturer for Stetson University's Social Justice Lecture Series in fall 2014. The professor in the Department of Afro-American Studies at Smith College spoke on “Quiet, Justice, Love."
In his talk, Quashie discusses African-American culture, often considered expressive, dramatic and even defiant, characterizations which are linked to the idea of resistance. Indeed, these terms come to dominate how we think of blackness. He addresses the topic of reimagining how we think about black culture, about resistance and justice. He questions how the idea of quiet, as a notion different from silence and as a metaphor for one’s inner life, could include insight into how to be alive in ways that are aware of social violence, but that retain the power and grace that is part of being human.

Islam. Join us on the next episode of MOORISH SCIENCE RADIO where the All Mighty Supreme Team will discuss the very social, psychological, political, and spiritual effects of those who believe that they are black people today; and why our nation or race of people are lagging behind the rest of the world intellectually and economically.
We will attempt to trace back the very origins of the first usage of this term as a descriptive of our people.
We will show how the Joshuaites (so called Jews) began to call our people "black" based on their Mosaic nomenclature and how this is constructed in the Torah; and we will also show how Christianity picked up these descriptions for our people and also prove that the "black man", according to these texts in its ORIGINAL INTENT was based on their image of the devil.
We will examine the political implications of a people cut-off from any national link to any nation or country or body politic and how this effects us in the moment and why we live in utter squalor in this American society.
We will examine the scientific meanings of why "black according to science means death" and how we are cut off from the great God of the Universe because we uphold this sinful name of being black.
We will be putting forth a challenge to all so called "black" scholars and afrocentrists to prove that we are in fact a black people and ask them to give us DEFINITIVE PROOF that we called ourselves black people prior to our contact with the pale skinned nations of Europe.
WE ARE MOORS AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MOORS AND WILL ALWAYS BE MOORS! COME AND HEAR THE TRUTH!
