Wanna know why we have this intense racially charged reaction to President Barack Obama being in the White House? It’s not because people may disagree with his policies. That’s understandable and fair game, but when you have a 400% increase in threats and this over the top maligning of his character mired in racial stereotypes, there’s something else going on. Perhaps we can find some answers rooted in what psychologist Francis Cress Welsing talks about in with her Race and Color Confrontation Theory.
Cress Welsing states white supremacy is 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 Cress 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. Cress Welsing believes that it is imperative that people of color, especially people of African descent, understand how the system of white supremacy works in order to dismantle it and bring true justice to planet Earth.
Below are clips from an appearance that Welsing made on the film Donahue show where she breaks all this down.. You can read her works in the Isis Papers and The Keys to the Colors..
After you watch the Phil Donahue excerpts you can scroll down and watch the historic debate between Francis Cress Welsing and Dr William Shockley
