'Racism is a behavioral system for survival'
Dr. Francis Cress Welsing’s pivotal 1991 book, "The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors," presented a bold psychoanalysis of the system of racism/White supremacy. Dr. Welsing postulated that White supremacy exists as a behavioral reaction to the genetic recessive state of the White race. Dr. Welsing continues to practice psychiatry in the Washington, D.C. area. She holds a lecture series on the second Thursday of every month that’s free to the public at the Cress-Welsing Institute of Psychiatry and Social Research. She states, "It’s a lecture series where I talk only about racism and aspects of racism." She is currently working on her second book, "The Isis Papers - Volume 2." Dr. Welsing was interviewed by Final Call contributor Barbara Beebe.
Q: Do you believe Black people, in general, have a greater understanding/response to White supremacy since the publication of "The Isis Papers?"
A: I gave a lecture last night and one of the people said that I had saved her life, based on the understanding that she gained about what was happening in the dynamic of racism. I get many letters from people … people in prison who’ve said that it has helped them understand what has happened to them in their lives and what is currently happening to them.
Q: John Singleton’s movie "Baby Boy" opens with a short explanation of your theory on the effects of White supremacy on the development of Black males. Do you think its portrayal of dysfunction was realistic? Effective?
A: John Singleton read "The Isis Papers." He was impressed with some of the ideas and that motivated him to do the film "Baby Boy." Columbia Pictures contacted me. I said, well I have to read the script. And I had them modify it. They made an initial statement that Dr. Francis Welsing says that Black men are babies. I said that’s not correct. I said that because of the system of racism/White supremacy, Black males are sometimes caused to think of themselves as babies. But they took out White supremacy and said it was because of the system of racism.
I think John Singleton wanted to give an explanation through an artistic, creative production to try to tie in some of the concepts and things that influence Black male behavior. The very fact that he tried to say something about this terrible dynamic, I give him a lot of credit for attempting to do that, because most of the films that we see certainly do not talk about this system dynamic of racism.
Q: Why do you think there is reluctance/refusal to use the term White supremacy with the term racism?
A: There are people who want to maintain the system of racism/White supremacy. They don’t want the victims of that system to have clarity as to what’s happening to them.
Q: The recently published Scientific American magazine article "Skin Deep" states that melanin is an evolutionary advantage. Please discuss that article in relation to your theories.
A: First of all, Black people were the first people on the planet. Everybody, including White people, come from Black people. White people are a genetic mutation or a genetic deficiency state [which] is what causes skin to be White. Now, the article doesn’t talk about White skin in those terms. It talks about people migrating north and therefore losing color. I maintain that’s not at all what happened. They lost the color through a genetic mutation to albinism, which genetics defines as a genetic deficiency state and they were forced out of Africa into Europe. Scientists who classify themselves as White don’t want to say [this]. You can’t simultaneously think White is superior and then say that White is a genetic deficiency state.
Q: Genetically modified melanin (i.e. Epitan, Melanotan) is now being combined with libido-enhancing properties. Please discuss this new "commodity" in relation to your theory on the reasons for White supremacy.
A: I am not at all surprised. The mania to suntan [and] the new chemical and genetic techniques that they are developing to allow people to have skin coloration is evidence that they feel at deep subconscious levels that something is missing and something is wrong. White people are developing techniques to increase their fertility and give them skin coloration; at the same time you have mass murder on the continent of Africa of Black people, a people who already have melanin pigmentation. You have White supremacy through HIV/AIDS killing tens of millions of people on the continent of Africa. I have often thought that maybe the White supremacy mind or the genetic deficiency state of albinism, that mindset [says], "well, let me kill off all of the people who already have color and then I will develop for myself a way to produce color."
A: I look at the system of racism having come into being consciously because the White population recognized, after they circumnavigated the globe, that they were a tiny minority, fewer that one-tenth of the people on the planet. And they were genetic-recessive compared to the genetic dominance of people who produce color. They realized that they could be genetically annihilated and White people could, as a collective of people, disappear. They worked out a system for White survival, which entails dominating all of the Black, Brown, Red and Yellow people on the planet. So racism is a behavioral system for the survival of White people. I would advise Black people and other people of color that since the practice of racism is the practice of White genetic survival, that the expectation that people who classify themselves as White can change this behavior is a high level expectation. Black people [must] finally understand that White people are playing a White survival game [which] has to inferiorize the functioning of Black and other people of color.
Well, how do we come out of the inferiorized state? We have to devise those means of behavior that are going to allow for the maximal development of the Black genetically constituted potential. That begins with how we relate to the behavior of sex. If we want to produce strong Black males and females, then we have to realize that White supremacy is not going to set up the conditions where that will happen because they are in fear of strong Black, Brown, Red and Yellow people. They] set up a dynamic where you end up with large numbers of teenagers and children reproducing, single parents reproducing and not being able to guide the development of male children to functional adult male status. Black people [should] have quality control of Black reproduction. Well, how do we go about it? You have to have mature parents. You have to have parents who are married. If I could wave the magic wand, Black people wouldn’t have sex until they got married and they wouldn’t get married until they were 30. In the meantime, they would be going to school.
Q: War is one of the areas of people activity, and seeing that the U.S. government is about to go to war in Iraq, it may be appropriate for you to give your opinions about this area of people activity.
A: The first war that we have to understand is the war of White supremacy against non-White people all over the globe. And from that vantage point, what is happening in the Middle East, I have labeled it WWIII. WWI and WWII were about the people who classify themselves as White dividing up the planet and taking control over non-White people. WWIII is this: if all of the resources are in the areas of the world where non-White people are, then people who classify themselves as White can go in and take those resources. [They] set up whatever pretense is needed to justify going in and taking control over those resources. The non-White people are not supposed to have any means to protect and defend themselves from this ultimate aggression.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to say to The Final Call audience?
A: I am suggesting that for the sake of Black mental health and for Black intelligence that all people of color must understand the dynamic of racism/White supremacy, what it is and how it works, so that they can have an appropriate, self-respecting response to racism. Television is indoctrinating Black people to think of themselves as buffoons and clowns and trashy people. By understanding racism you will understand that this is what the system of racism survives on. As long as we are disrespecting ourselves and acting in a stupid, demeaning manner, this furthers the dynamic of racism/White supremacy and we need to give a lot of thought to that and decide that we are not going to participate in it.

Genocide: a system of survival (Interview)
By FinalCall.com News
Updated Dec 22, 2003, 11:10 pm
One on one with Dr. Frances Cress Welsing
Dr. Frances Cress Welsing is a psychiatrist who once taught at the Howard University School of Medicine. She is author of "The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation." Final Call White House Correspondent Askia Muhammad discusses with Dr. Welsing her study of the global dynamics of genocide.
FinalCall.com (FC): In the face of the AIDS pandemic, wars, famine, drought, is it possible that the African continent, and Black people around the world, are targets of a genocide conspiracy by Europeans?
Dr. Frances Cress Welsing (FCW): I have for a long time looked at the problem of Black people as being related to racism, White supremacy. Those words are synonymous—meaning global behavioral system for White genetic survival on the planet.
In other words, the White population on the planet is a tiny minority population, fewer than one-tenth of the people on the planet. They are genetic recessive in terms of skin coloration—meaning, White can be genetically annihilated. White plus Black equals Colored. White plus Brown equals Colored. White plus Yellow equals Colored.
So, the White minority is aware; I would say they have been aware since they circumnavigated the globe, that they were a minority. White males having sexual relations with Non-White women found out that the children all look like the mothers, meaning the White was annihilated.
I say that this is the fundamental motivation of people who classify themselves as White, whether it is conscious and/or subconsciously determined. In other words: what the White Collective is doing on the planet is engaging in behaviors—in economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and more—in order for them to survive on the planet, by any means necessary.
When people are consciously and/or subconsciously on course for their genetic survival—meaning that they’re found genetically vulnerable to other people who can cause their genetic annihilation—then the practice of genocide is a logical outcome from this.
As I see what is happening on the Continent of Africa and other places where there are Non-White people—even if we just look at the AIDS-HIV epidemic—this is something that is killing tens of millions of Non-White people. I don’t think that an intelligent and an aware Black person—any aware person—is not thinking that HIV/AIDS is something that just spontaneously occurred in nature.
Then, I say that we have to conclude: This is biological warfare until proven otherwise. I would say that it is used against Non-White population—as (Dr.) Neely Fuller used the term, "population tailoring"—to kill certain numbers of Non-White people on the planet.
A dimension of genocide is incarcerating large numbers of Black men in their reproductive years, so that you control the number of Black people being produced.
FC: Are Black people in this country and in other parts of the world sufficiently conscious of this to take the proper actions to defend our people?
FCW: I think that Black people and other people of color on the planet have been systematically deceived as to what the global dynamic is really all about. People are told that this is a democracy and everybody is equal and everybody is treated equally. Black people’s religious beliefs encourage them to love everyone and not be mindful. Hope and pray, but not be analytical. The majority of Non-White people on the planet do not have a sufficient analysis of racism, White supremacy.
And we’re propagandized in the media as to how to think about the problems that occur. Most people go along with the propaganda. Even more specifically, Black people are being programmed through the media and television to really just focus on clowning and buffoonery, and to be obsessed with sexual activity and not think—singing, dancing, and being obsessed with sex. This is diverting attention away from what is actually going on.
FC: I can just hear your critics say: "She never met a conspiracy she didn’t like. Her theories are really hard to swallow." What do you say to them?
FCW: If we just look back in history, Adolph Hitler ran a White supremacist state in Germany. The people who were victimized by that—Gypsies, Black people and Semites of the Jewish religion—Adolph Hitler said that all of these people were not White. They were not Aryan, so they were going to be killed because he was interested in having a pure Aryan population in Germany, as well as the rest of Europe.
In spite of the fact that the Semites of the Jewish religion had scholars such as (Sigmund) Freud and (Albert) Einstein, they didn’t understand what was happening. They kept saying: "We’re Germans." They wanted to be assimilated and included. Even when Semites of the Jewish religion became aware of what was actually coming down and done to them, there were a large number of Semites of the Jewish religion who said: "That’s preposterous. It wouldn’t happen. I don’t want to hear it."
I’m not surprised when people are not aware, when they don’t read widely, when they really are looking forward to being accepted by those persons in power, then I can understand why people might say that.
FC: Are you saying that Black assimilation, and what many would say is "success" within the American culture, is really detrimental to our real best interests?
FCW: The Semites of the Jewish religion in Germany believed that they had been assimilated; they were being assimilated from the middle of the 19th Century. They felt that the barriers and the ghettoes no longer existed and that they were being allowed to attend colleges, and be more mobile in the society. Then, at a critical point, all of that was washed away.
FC: Thank you.
