Is ?Black? Really Beautiful?? is an unorthodox presentation of race, racism and color. The main thesis of the book is that who people are ?ontically? or ?noumenally? speaking and the color that has been used to describe them aren?t one and the sample: Blackness per se isn?t Africaness and Whiteness per se isn?t Europeanness. Kuir maintains that how a group of people is racially described should be taken with moral priority because it affects the social standing of such a group of people in terms of inter-racial, inter-cultural interactions and discourses. So any given racial description should be passed through a moral gauge or meter to ascertain if it passes or not. So far, how the African person is described fails all the moral requirements of a decent and civil regard. This ontological look at color and race is meant to humble the rest and make the African person speak.
