AFRICANGLOBE – In light of the epidemic killing of Black men, by White police officers nationwide, epitomized by what happened to Michael Brown and Eric Garner, the question of the “fear of Black men” reminiscent of Rap group Public Enemy’s album “Fear of a Black planet” and where it stems from needs to be more fully explored.
The thoughts of Dr. Francis Cress Welsing author of the seminal The Isis Papers; The Keys to the Colors are important in deciphering the source of White people’s fear of Black males. Dr. Cress Welsing is known for advancing the controversial “The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation .”
Examine this quote from Dr. Welsing “Racism (White Supremacy) is the local and global power system and dynamic, structured and 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 majority of people are classified as non-White.”
Under her theory, White fear of Black men is inextricable linked to the “genetic survival” of White people. She maintains White people target Black men, more than Black women, because White people perceive Black men as primary threats to annihilating the White race, “genetically,” because White people fear Black male sexuality. Dr. Welsing’s ideas dovetail with the high levels of Black male unemployment, imprisonment and premature death.
She says “The war of White genetic survival attacks the functioning of Blacks in general, but most specifically attacks the Black male, as it is the Black male who most specifically threatens White genetic survival at a level the Black female is unable to approach.”
The thought of rising population rates of Blacks apparently scares some White people who see a world already filled with too many Black people. Some have long labelled Dr. Welsing a dangerous quack and “reverse racist.” However, a closer look at her thoughts seem to explain a number of awful statistics that have kept the Black population especially, here in America low.
In the aftermath of the Ferguson and Staten Island cases, Americans are now being forced to acknowledge that there is a problem with police brutality. Some, are even, begrudgingly, admitting that reforms in policing are needed. However, many White Americans still reject the notion that racism plays any role in these instances of police brutality against Black men.
Yet, there can be no doubt that Black men have a right to be concerned for their safety whenever police are around. How else do we explain the fact that young Black males are 21 times more likely to die by the hands of police than their White counterparts? Every Black parent, unlike White parents, has to worry about White cops brutalizing or killing their children; especially males.
Dr. Welsing has integrated other indicators to inform her argument that Black people are being killed in a slow-genocide manner. For, example she has pointed out the discrepancies in things like the infant mortality rates, HIV\AIDS rates, and other health and sociopolitical factors that prematurely kill Black people.
Some may say these statements are reckless hypothesis by someone who should know better. Why would Whites in government do this? Where is the basis for making such outrageous claims?
Yet, there is a historical basis for these claims.
We do know what happened during the Tuskegee Experiments, where White American doctors watched scores of African-American men, women and children die of syphilis, as these doctors did whatever studies they were engaged in on Black sexuality and biological diseases.
In 2010, it was revealed that American doctors deliberately and knowingly infected soldiers, prisoners and mental patients, in Guatemala, with syphilis and gonorrhea. And we’ve all heard about how Native Americans were given blankets infected with Smallpox.
We also know that some White people in the eugenics movement, especially, after World War 2, (those who wanted to purge America and Western countries of “feeble-minded undesirables”) specifically targeted Black people in programs for things like sterilization. Some of the characterizations used to justify those to be sterilized were descriptions like these: “lazy,” “promiscuous,” and “sexually uncontrollable.”
In the late 1960’s, records indicate that 60 percent of those sterilized were young African-American women. Government officials apparently used things like the Welfare rolls to pinpoint “undesirables.” Many women were sterilized without their knowledge.
It’s important to note that Adolph Hitler learned many of his tactics from White Americans in the eugenics movement here in America, including those who operated out of the Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory, on Long Island, New York.
The disproportionately high incarceration rates of Black males, including for low level crimes that many White people are never arrested for, let alone being prosecuted, is another way to remove them from society.
Some people believe that Planned Parenthood and abortion are part of the eugenics movement’s instruments to diminish Black birth rates. Moreover, the Black infant mortality rate is already high. A Black infant is three times more likely to die than a White infant, and, that has been the case for generations. African-Americans face statistics that speak of the genocidal climate conditions under which we live in this country.
What does any of this have to do with what happened in Ferguson, or, on Staten Island and other cases of egregious police killings that go unpunished or where regardless of the clear evidence available the killers walk free? The connection is — all these things are but pieces of an overall depopulation program, targeted at making sure the Black population in America doesn’t expand.
The killing of Black men by police is just one aspect. This system is working so well that many Blacks internalize the hatred White America has toward them. People of the same race are primarily the ones who kill their own.
Because Blacks are truly an endangered species, we must do everything we can to reduce the self-destructive tendencies that we have learned in this America.
White America has been using, abusing and killing Black people from the very beginning. If Black people are going to protect the “genetic survival” of Black people we must first become truly aware of the dire situation that we’re in.
We live in a racist, White supremacist society that, ironically, is probably more racist that it was before Barack Obama became the 44 President of the United States.
Think about that.
