Author Victor Lavalle wrote a great article on Bookforum.com about black nationalism, skin color, and black empowerment. 

My favorite part of the essay is this:

I’m sick of discussing black nationalism. I’m tired of all the dourness and doomsaying; of the grimace that’s required whenever we discuss it and blackness in general; of the countless humorless men and women who scold every impulse toward comfort or laughter or, dare I say it, optimism. I’m sick of the same old forecast for blackness: gloom followed by clouds of hail.
