Fanon on Colonialism

“Colonialism almost never exploits the entire country. It is content with extracting natural resources and exporting them to metropolitan industries thereby enabling a specific sector to grow relatively wealthy, while the rest of the colony continues, or rather sinks, into underdevelopment and poverty”Frantz Fanon in Wretched of the Earth
