Race et couleur chez Jacques Roumain

by: Acacia Michel

Ce texte introduit le lecteur à des aspects relativement méconnus ou occultés de la vie et l’oeuvre de Jacques Roumain. Il nous fait entendre les multiples voix de l’homme sur la race et la couleur. Il nous donne à lire les différents registres que l’écrivain a eu à utiliser dans son traitement de ces questions, que ce soit à travers des textes polémiques, scientifiques ou de fiction.
Dans une écriture entrainante, documents à l’appui, Michel Acacia interpelle l’environnement socio-politique qui a servi (successivement) de cadre à l’action et à la pensée de Roumain.

About This Book
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.
