Remembering Dr. Frances Cress Welsing

15826522_1601482106532343_2285311203869775550_nIt’s been a year now that we lost this great woman of conscience. Last year was a horrible year because so many icons of black history made the transition to be with our ancestors. On this day a year ago, we lost a giant, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, born Frances Luella Cress, who was blessed to live an extraordinary life and opened the eyes of many people to which I am grateful for the knowledge she shared with the world. Dr. Welsing was an Afro-centrist and a renowned psychiatrist, who with her 1970 essay The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism (White Supremacy) offered her interpretation of the origins of white supremacy.

She was the author of The Isis Papers (1991) and The Keys to the Colors (1991). In her writing, Welsing discusses that white people are the result of a genetic mutation of albinism and are the outcast offspring of the original peoples of Africa. Welsing caused controversy after she said that homosexuality among African-Americans was a ploy by white males to decrease the black population.

Dr. Welsing was born Frances Luella Cress in Chicago, Illinois, on March 18, 1935, and in 1957, she earned a B.S. degree at Antioch College and in 1962 received an M.D. at Howard University. She moved to Washington, DC in the 1960s and worked at many hospitals, especially children’s hospitals.

Welsing states that a system is practiced by the global white minority, on both conscious and unconscious levels, to ensure their genetic survival by any means necessary. According to Welsing, this system attacks people of color, particularly people of African descent, in the nine major areas of people’s activity: economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war. Welsing believes that it is imperative that people of color, especially people of African descent, understand how the system of white supremacy works to dismantle it and bring true justice to planet Earth.

Dr. Welsing is famously known for her groundbreaking novel The Isis Papers where in it, she states the melanin theory, which white people are the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants. She also states that because of this “defective” mutation, they may have been forcibly expelled from Africa, among other possibilities.

Welsing suggests that, because it is so easy for pure whiteness to be genetically lost during interracial mixing, White-skinned people developed an aggressive colonial urge and their societies dominated others militarily to preserve this White-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, 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 non-white (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-skinned people.

Welsing discusses her “Unified Field Theory Psychiatry” as a broader framework, encompassing biology, psychology, and physics, as a prerequisite to understanding the etiology of a unified field of energy phenomena, specifically the “behavior-energy” underlying racial conflict. She states that her position is more analogous to the “determinist” model of physicist Albert Einstein than to the “indeterminacy” theories of Max Born and Werner Heisenberg. Furthermore, she asserts that both homosexuality and sexism are necessarily derived from this behavior-energy system.

Dr. Welsing has been criticized, wrongly I think, for stating that black male homosexuality was imposed on the black man by the white man in order to reduce the black population. Whereas White 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 was a brilliant woman and a profound forward thinker on African American topics unheard of before her work. Sadly, the good doctor suffered a Stroke on January 1, 2016, and was placed in critical condition, where she later died in a Washington DC area hospital on the morning of January 2, 2016, at the age of 80. Her passing was a crippling loss to the black conscious community, and she will be sorely missed. My prayers are that she is resting in power. And that’s my thought provoking…

Only In America

193_160God Bless America! If ever there was a time to ask for this blessing it is today; because there are those forces among us who want to turn back the hands of time. They call themselves patriots. You know the party of “No,” who have wanted to take over the government to use their power to rape the country of all the money they can take. Well, it just happened! Trump and his band of thieves or Robber Barons as it were who have emerged in this alt-right movement are scary enough for us to ask for help from someone greater than ourselves.

Of course, some of these people who have or will take back their country are saying the same thing – in the name of God, which is frightening too. Because what they mean is the God on the back of the dollar bill! These are the same folks who want us to believe in the false assertion that America will now be put on the right track and move in the right direction, which means 1950.

Back in the day, there were the George Wallace’s, Bull Connor’s, Strom Thurman’s and today we have a new breed; Breitbart, Sarah Palin, David Duke – to name a few. Their rage, from sea to shining sea, infects their followers who create conspiracies and assume false narratives regarding everything that quite neatly put the country into a place of perceived fear. This place they will create or want back was not all that great! I know I was there; elitism, white privilege, and America’s racial codes were cruelty, unfairness, and a place of amoral agenda’s.

Let’s face it; it had been a pretty good run, about 400 years, with little sign of any serious trouble challenging their superiority. The system was working and humming along as they came up with new forms of discrimination so that all people of their hue, particularly men, benefited. They controlled or occupied just about every branch of government for more than two centuries and had sole possession and leadership of its executive branch, where the symbol of power is the White House. Now there is Trump and his cronies!

The man who said the president was not born in the America; therefore, ineligible to be president is now the president. Pure psychodrama! Most sane people believe the devil has taken over the country and for the first time in American history; well maybe not the first time; there have been other crooks before him. The election of this guy should be “Like tectonic plates that slow-moving but irreversible forces may generate enormous turbulence as they grind against each other … At some point, when tectonic plates build up enough tension, that destructive energy gets unleashed in a major earthquake.” Actually, this is a pretty good metaphor for what happened!

This is what they do, lie and create distorted facts, false information and don’t forget they add a few a few false narratives into the truth with bogymen like brown-skinned people and the Muslims. Finally, enter the most extreme bigots, and the recipe is cooking for making America white again. Meaning more racist than Jackson could imagine. I am just pointing out what appears to be a tone that does not have our best interest in America and surely not for people of color.

For those that can remember segregation and its horrors – listen carefully at the words being used by those who are in charge. Every person should be afraid – very afraid! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

In Case You Forgot


Any of these immoral systems can come to pass again. Fight the power! And that’ my thought provoking perspectives… 

Happy Holiday From Me To You

On this day that I am so blessed to share, I want to send my best wishes to you and your families. If I had one wish, it would be that there would be no more murders of unarmed black people. Also, I want to ask that you say a prayer or take a moment of silence for the many Black Lives who are not with us on this day as a result of being killed at the hands of the new Nazis, the American terrorists.

I have lost a child and know the pain and emptiness of those parents are feeling. Therefore, I ask that your prayers also go out to the parents too.

In my mind, it is not really Christmas until I hear the lovely melodic sounds of the Temptations sing this Christmas song. Finally, I want to send much love, from my heart, and to say that I appreciate your support, for reading and following THOUGHT PROVOKING PERSPECTIVES…

Happy Holiday!
