Alors que le mouvement des droits civiques commence embraser l'Amrique des annes 1950, les hôpitaux psychiatriques attestent d'une trange volution du diagnostic de la schizophrnie : jusque-l rserve aux intellectuels et aux femmes au foyer blanches, la maladie devient soudain l'apanage d'une nouvelle catgorie d'individus - majoritairement des hommes noirs et en colre. C'est en se plongeant dans les archives de l'hpital d'Etat d'Ionia (Michigan) que le psychiatre Jonathan Metzl a fait cette dcouverte stupfiante. D'inhibs qu'ils taient, les " nouveaux" schizophrnes se voient qualifis de belliqueux ou de paranoaques et, paralllement, sous la plume des grands psychiatres de l'poque, la schizophrnie devient une " psychose de rvolte ". Plus encore, l'abus diagnostique s'immisce dans le langage courant au point que mme Martin Luther King ou Stokely Carmichael le reprendront leur compte, faisant de la schizophrnie une image de l'identit afro-amricaine scinde en deux par l'hgmonisme blanc. Dans cet ouvrage passionnant, J. Metzl met au jour un racisme institutionnel d'un genre nouveau : l'instrumentalisation de la psychiatrie des fins de domination des populations. Un ouvrage plus que jamais ncessaire, l'heure o l'urgence de dconstruire toute forme de racialisation apparat de faon toujours plus clatante.
