  • Nègres blancs d'Amérique est un livre autobiographique de Pierre Vallières publié en 1968 aux éditions Parti pris. Ce récit, écrit par Vallières alors qu'il était emprisonné aux États-Unis, est à la fois un essai et une autobiographie qui dresse un portrait de la société québécoise des années 1950 et 1960, encore sous l'emprise économique des conglomérats anglo-américains et incapable de se définir clairement par rapport aux différentes formes de pouvoirs qui s'exerçaient alors.Pour Vallières, le Québec francophone de l'époque est la patrie d'un peuple encore grandement colonisé que seule une révolution (marxiste) pourra libérer.Ce livre sera un temps considéré comme le principal manifeste du mouvement de libération nationale québécois. Nègres blancs d'Amérique reste, selon Louis Hamelin, le meilleur document québécois sur le bouillonnement de ces années-là.Nègres blancs d'Amérique fera l'objet de plusieurs rééditions chez différents éditeurs (éd. Parti Pris, éd. Maspéro, éd. Typo)
  • White Niggers of America is a work of non-fiction literature written by Pierre Vallières, a leader of the Front de libération du Québec.White Niggers of America chronicles the history of the French colonists of North America, first in the New France colonial empire, and then in British North America. A book about exploitation, author Vallières compares to some extent the plight of these immigrants to that of blacks in the American South, arguing that both groups were forcibly imported to the New World and subsequently exploited by aristocrat capitalists.Vallières wrote the book while serving a four year prison sentence for manslaughter in the Manhattan House of Detention for Men in New York City. He was later acquitted in a second trial in 1970.The book is a class analysis of French Canadian settlement and social, political, and economic life in Canada since arrival. Vallières argues that French Canadians have been kept in a position of exploited workers by the English upper class entrepreneurs. He draws parallels between the social and economic position of French Canadians and slaves in the United States, hoping to show that both cultural groups have been brought to the continent to serve as the lower, under, and working class for a common oppressor.Vallières attempts to use the term “nigger” not solely as a cultural or racial indicator, but as a concept encompassing social class and power. In drawing these comparisons, he states that the liberation movements of Black people in America have provided inspiration for French Canadians.The book also serves as Vallières's “call to arms” for the apparently exploited masses of French Canadians. He describes the development of a class consciousness among French Canadians through which they become cognizant of their position as oppressed, and Vallières advocates for an armed uprising. Vallières traces the development of his own intellectual and class consciousness, citing the policies and actions of Maurice Duplessis as contributing to his own social unrest. He discusses the Asbestos and Murdochville mine strikes as particular instances contributing to his own sense of awareness of the injustice in Quebec.
