Frances Cress Drops Knowledge About “White Supremacy Culture”
Frances Cress Welsing was born in 1935 and she was a brilliant psychiatrist. Her 1970 essay, The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism, offered her interpretation on the origins of what she described as white supremacy culture.
She was the author of The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors. Welsing caused controversy after she said that homosexuality among African-Americans was a ploy by white males to decrease the black population.
In The Isis Papers, she described white people as the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants. She wrote that due to this “defective” mutation, they may have been forcibly expelled from Africa, among other possibilities. Racism, in the views of Welsing, is a conspiracy “to ensure white genetic survival”. She attributed AIDS and addiction to crack cocaine and other substances to “chemical and biological warfare” by whites.
