The topic of the study paper is the impact of racism on psychological well-being. Toni Morrison's novel "The Bluest Eye" was chosen for analysis, and Frantz Fanon's "Black Skin White Masks" theory was used to do so. The study is significant since it is helpful for both students and their professors. It can also be helpful for other studies because it can provide information on how racism impacts people's minds. Additionally, students might gain from this experience by understanding the value of identity to an individual. The data is gathered using the qualitative method from the book "The Bluest Eye." The novel is subjected to a thorough descriptive study using Fanon's theory to assess how racial discrimination has a negative impact on coloured people's mental health. How inferiority complexes affect black men and women. Always having a complexion that was dark hinted towards enslavement and depression, and even damaged people's psyches. Toni Morrison's book has been the subject of a lot of inquiry, however the Black Skin White Masks theory has somehow been overlooked as not properly applying to the book. By using Fanon's theory, the novel is given a thorough examination.
