Finally, I close by replying to Jorge Garcia's recent (2001) full-length critique of
my book, The Racial Contract (Mills 1997), and by giving, much more briefly,
rejoinders to some criticisms from other writers. Choosing this as a final chapter is
appropriate for a number of reasons. Classic social contract theory has a
descriptive as well as a normative dimension, insofar as the idea of a "contract"
captures the idea that society is a human creation. But the atomic individualism of

Mills describes these conditions as elements of a racial contract, a set of formal
and informal agreements agreement between members of a subset of individuals
who, in racial terms, are designated “white,” to categorize the remaining subset of
human beings as “non-white” and of a different and inferior moral status (Mills 11)
, into experiencing an inferior and subordinate civil standing. This makes the
subordinate group the objects rather than the subjects of these agreements.

Instead of recognizing racial oppression as a fundamental source, the West
invents a hypothetical story of a social contract in which all willingly agree to
forego some of their individual liberty for collective security and freedom.

nonwhites as barbarians, ...

contract is the reconstitution of the political and moral obligations of the social
contract into a subversive and morally repugnant white supremacist contract. The
racial contract explains the creation of Western society based on racial hierarchy.
The racial hierarchy reconstitutes individuals in society, establishes the state, and
creates the moral and psychological code of white supremacy.154 The racial
contract is ...

—S.Craig Watkins1 Breaking the Contract In Black Skins, White Masks, the late
Caribbean psychiatrist and revolutionary theorist Frantz Fanon explores the
psychoracial dimensions of social marginality. He is particularly concerned with
the ways in which racial experience is mediated and determined through external
means and the impact on internal self-conceptions. This process is captured in
the defining instant, as Fanon sees it, when white recognition of the black subject
