A DIVIDED WORLD
The colonial world is a world cut in two. In the colonies , it is the policeman and the
soldier who are the spokesmen of the settler and his rule of oppression. By their
immediate presence and direct action, they maintain contact with the native and advise
him by means of weapons not to budge. They speak the ******** of the pure force.
The zone where the natives live is opposed to the zone inhabited by the settlers. The
settlers’ town is strongly built and brightly lit. The settlers’ feet are never visible, except
perhaps in the sea ; but there, you are never close enough to see them. The settlers’ town
is a town of white people, of foreigners. It is a well-fed and an easy going town.
The town belonging to the colonized people, or at the native town, the negro village,
the medina, the reservation, is a place of evil reputation, a world without spaciousness.
They are born there and will die there, it matters little where, nor how. The native town is
a hungry town, starved of bread, of meat, of shoes, of coal, of light.
The colonized man is an envious man for he always dreams of being in the settler’s
place, to sit at the settler’s table and to sleep in his comfortable bed. And this, the settler
knows it very well.
(After Frantz – Fanon)
