WE MUST NEVER FORGET!!
Dr. FRANCES CRESS WELSING 1935 – 2016
African American psychiatrist, lecturer and writer born in Chicago on March 18,1935. In 1957, she earned a B.S. degree at Antioch College and in 1962 received a M.D. at Howard University. She is noted for her “Cress Theory of Color Confrontation”, which explores the practice of white supremacy. She is the author of the historic work “The Isis Papers; The Keys to the Colors “(1991).
In The Isis Papers she states the melanin theory, that white people are the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants. She posits that because of this defective mutation, they may have been forcibly expelled from Africa, among other possibilities. Welsing proposes that, because it is so easy for pure whiteness to be genetically lost during interracial breeding, light-skinned peoples developed an aggressive colonial urge and their societies dominated others militarily in order to preserve this light-skinned purity. Welsing ascribes certain inherent and behavioral differences between black and white people to a “melanin deficiency” in white people. Welsing proposes what she calls a “functional definition of racism”:
Functional Definition Of Racism = White Supremacy = Apartheid: As a black behavioral scientist and practicing psychiatrist, my own functional definition of racism (white supremacy) is as follows: “Racism (white supremacy) is the local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action, and emotional response, as conducted, simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet Earth – a planet upon which the vast and overwhelming majority of people are classified as nonwhite (black, brown, red and yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people.”
Welsing further contends that chauvinism of white males is rooted in envy, “because Black is always genetically dominant to white”:
…I have said all of the above to state that, yes, there is envy in the white supremacy culture, but it began with the white male’s envy of the genetic power residing in the Black male’s testicles and phallus. Perhaps there was also envy of the comparatively longer length of the Black phallus. The sense of his relative genetic weakness and inferiority compared to Black males (because Black is always genetically dominant to white) caused the white male to attempt to project “inferiority” on white females as well.
Welsing has been criticized for stating that black male homosexuality was imposed on the black man by the white man in order to reduce the black population, that black homosexuality is a sign of weakness and that homosexual patterns of behavior are simply expressions of black male self-submission to other males in the area of sex, as well as in other areas such as economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, and war.
Dr. Welsing joined the ancestors on 1/2/2016 from a stroke. She leaves a legacy of work in literature, video and audio, to strengthen the minds of Black people. She will most notably be known for encouraging strong families and role models in the black community, Welsing wrote, “Children are the only future of any people.” Let’s all do what we can to continue her work and more to help our people, it’s “Time For An Awakening”.
