According to Agostinho Neto's 'Night' in the selected poems, the problems that the black man faces today mostly stem from the lack of a clear sense of direction coupled with years of oppression that have weakened his will. This means that due to the history of oppression and lack of proper leadership, the black man has struggled to find a path forward, and this has weakened his resolve to overcome these challenges. The other options, such as superstition, skin color, and haste to catch up with the rest of the world, are not explicitly mentioned as the main cause of the problems facing the black man in the poem.
