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…

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!

The Race Card

200_1000theThe phrase “N-Word” was created by white folks to be able to use the word “nigger” publicly and directed toward black people to minimized, and make it appear as if they are not bigots. Factually, when they use the language of their fathers, they want black people to think of them as being more decent and not bigoted. I am sure you have heard the commonly used remark – “I’ve got black friends” but dare not use that forbidden word directed at a black person.

This invented term alleges that someone has deliberately and falsely accused another person of being a racist in order to gain some sort of advantage. The term entered the lexicon of American dogma during the O. J. Simpson murder trial. It was coined when critics accused the defense of “playing the race card” in presenting Mark Fuhrman’s past recorded use of the word “nigger” in the trial for being accused of tampering with murder evidence in prior cases. To avoid being viewed as a racist, Fuhrman used the Fifth Amendment to avoid potential self-incrimination upon questioning as a reason not to destroy his credibility as a witness. In other words, to attempt to appear credible.

However, the purpose of the term race card is used to exploit prejudice against black people for political or some other advantage. The use of the southern strategy by bigoted political candidate is a version of playing the race card in reverse. For example, when former Senator Jesse Helms use of it during his 1990 Republican Senate campaign. He ran an ad showing a black man taking a white man’s job intended as a criticism of the idea of racial quotas. Many people interpreted the ad as trying to play to racist fears among white voters.

Ronald Reagan used it when you used the phrase “welfare queens” in his campaign and so did his vice president poppa Bush when he used the picture of a black murderer to suggest how tough on crime he was by using the image of a black man implying that all black people are criminals. Therefore, it is the whites who use this to accuse others falsely of being a racist to gain an advantage. When in reality it is more likely they are the racist.

Stanford professor Richard Thompson Ford has argued that the race card can be played independent of the person making the claim, or the race in question. An example cited was the Hillary Clinton campaign claiming that Obama won the 2008 Democratic Primary in South Carolina due to the disproportionate number of black registered Democrats in the state, implying more racism in the general population. George Dei in the book Playing the Race Card argues that the term itself is a rhetorical device created by white folk to use in an effort to devalue and minimize claims of racism.

Understand “N-Word” is a code for using the word “nigger”. Now, since everyone knows it. White folk are in essence using “nigger” and feel comfortable doing so when they say N-Word. We know white people use it amongst themselves and teach their children to know what it means. So it could be said, it is a way to live their father’s sin.

News flash – black people know you use the word “nigger” and understand why you do. It’s no secret! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

This is a MUST SEE VIDEO!!!


Police: Armed and Dangerous

200_1000theLet me begin with a “PSA”: People of America, especially black people, African Americans, and minorities. Be ever vigilant and careful as you go about your way, and if at all possible minimize your interactions with the police. Officer Friendly is not friendly when it comes to people of these distinctions. Your life could well depend on it!!!

Every day there is a new revelation of police misconduct or an atrocity inflicted upon black citizens; often for minor offenses, usually unarmed, and the person is killed. Those who are supposed to protect and serve have become very dangerous with this shot first, no worries attitude that most have and regularly act on it. I know this sound’s harsh, but the behavior we see today, with no consequences or accountability, would make Hitler blush.

For those who don’t know, this is not new to black people. These kinds of complaints have been ongoing for as long as there have been black people here dating back to the origin of police; then called slave catcher. If you can remember, the Black Panther Party was formed and organized because of the way the police targeted the black citizens of Oakland, CA.

Let’s be frank, the entire system is broken with regard to those who protect the president, the drug enforcement folks, and the cops on the street. What is rarely mentioned in the conversation are the deputies, as we saw this week with a seventy-three year guy who allegedly paid thousands to obtain influence to partake in police business kill a subdued man. After he shot and killed the person being arrested, he said, “It was a mistake”. Another area of law enforcement of major concern is the wannabe’s; the private security folk with guns and little training – just know how to point and shoot – are even more dangerous. Lest not forget the mall cops who are worse than them all. The point is we are under siege!

Let’s go back to the top professional cops, the ones that protect the president. I have been to the White House, not inside, and you cannot look in any direction without seeing a cop, yet someone was able to enter the building and reach the inner depths of it. Also, two wannabe celebrities were able to gain access to a dinner for leaders and heads of state or the alleged drunk driving incident and their prostitution scandal. But they rose to the occasion to shot and kill an unarmed black mother who had her child in the car. There are congressional hearings being held this week involving the DEA, who had sex parties thrown for them by Cartel organization they say.

There have been so many of these incidents and each one more disturbing than the last. Last week, we saw a cop kill in cold blood an unarmed black man, running away from him, shooting him in the back six times when the victim was thirty feet away. Then we saw the kind of dishonesty him via his police report to include others on the scene as well, but the killer was caught in his cover-up attempt because a video surfaced. This incident eerily reminds me of the Michael Brown killing. Same pattern, “in fear for his life”!

The list is too long to mention, Eric Garner, Tamera Rice, John Crawford, and lately two or three killings per week. Just yesterday we saw a cop at full speed in his cruiser run over a suspect in a takedown move. This was the most disturbing video to date. The man had his back turned walking down the street when he was run over. How he was not killed is a mystery to me but here’s the kicker, the police said “they did this to save his life”!

Many of these agencies are armed and appear to be preparing for war. You saw it last summer in Ferguson with your own eyes. Also, for those who are doubters of the severity of the crisis or the epidemic of police misconduct just read the Ferguson Report compiled by the Department of Justice. I am sure what they were doing in the city of Ferguson was not an isolated instance. It is happening all over America in small town near and far; and dare I say everywhere there are police. No, this is not a positive critique of those paid by us to protect and serve but as we’ve seen in the many videos – my eyes aren’t lying.

Nonetheless, the talking points are always the same was the victim’s fault he was killed. If they use that logic, if the victim did not get out of bed he would still be alive. Yes, I know this will not please some, and they will say that black people are thugs and such, but an eleven-year-old child! Or they will say, I am only talking about blacks being killed – yeah. Because it took over a year for the news media to pick up the Trayvon Martin murder so it must be at epidemic proportion for the mainstream media to be airing incident after incident.

Not only that but I have not seen white men being killed at the hands of the police in this manner. In fact, not too long age a white guy shot a policeman in the Pennsylvania area, hide in the mountains for a couple of months, and when they captured him – he only had a bruise on his cheek. It has come to a point where everyone should take a stand and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH because it is real and something needs to be done NOW! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

Dr. Umar Johnson On Education And Black Children

007_1000This is a powerful interview on what happens in the school community that every parent must hear. He explains the process as to why black kids are labeled, put on medicine, and put in Special Ed, which he calls a conspiracy. POWERFUL!!!

Dr. Johnson says “Politically-speaking, keeping Black boys from having a gambler’s chance at a decent life in this country seems to have become a fetish of the American social order,” he said. “As states scramble to find more dollars to incarcerate young Black males, a quiet but very powerful sense of hopelessness is settling in amongst the Black boy population in America.”

Johnson says if the Black community wants to “reverse the special education, ADHD, psychotropic drug, juvenile incarceration and premature extermination wars against Black boys. Then we will have to build schools that are uniquely designed to teach Black boys…how to avoid the trappings of a racist criminal justice system.” Johnson believes the boys who attend this school will see a much brighter outcome.
