Do YOU Know Who Dr. Frances Cress Welsing Is?
Dr. Welsing is an amazing family therapist in the Washington, DC area who I have had the great fortune to see twice. She is the author of the incredible, “Isis Papers.” While I don’t agree with every word she’s written (and that could be a reflection of my current inability to understand it), Dr. Welsing is an amazing, brilliant, Black Woman. She’s a freedom fighter, a liberator. Why is she seemingly on the margins of OUR culture when what she says — in my humble opinion — is so relevant and REAL?!
“The white personality, in the presence of color, can be stabilized only by keeping Blacks and other non-whites in obviously inferior positions. The situation of mass proximity to Blacks is intolerable to whites because Blacks are inherently more than equal. People of color always will have something highly visible that whites never can have or produce — the genetic factor of color. Always, in the presence of color, whites will feel genetically inferior.”
“They can compensate for their color inadequacy only by placing themselves in socially superior positions.”
“If hate and lack of respect are manifested towards others, hate and lack of respect are felt most often at deeper levels towards the self.”
“(The Cress) Color-Confrontation theory postulates that whites desired and still do desire sexual alliances with non-whites, both male and female, because it is only through this route that whites can achieve the illusion of being able to produce color…The extreme rage vented against even the idea of a sexual alliance between the Black male and the white female, which has long been a dominant theme in the white supremacy culture, is viewed by the Color-Confrontation theory as a result of the white male’s intense fear of the Black male’s capacity to fulfill the greatest longing of the white female — that of conceiving and birthing a product of color.”
“The C-C theory also explains why Black male’s testicles were the body parts that white males attacked in most lynchings: the testicles store powerful color-producing genetic material. Likewise, the repeated and consistent focus on the size of Black males’ penises by both white males and females is viewed by this theory as a displacement of the fundamental concern with the genetic color-producing capacity residing in the testicles. Since the fact of color-envy must remain repressed, color-desire can never be mentioned or the entire white psychological structure collapses.”
