I first read this when I was in college in the ’80s and I’ve been fascinated by it ever since.
I appreciate her psychiatric approach to tying together the relevance of symbols that are seemingly unrelated. I’m doing it no justice in my explanation, but in actually reading the book – the concept makes much sense. If you’re open to thinking of things in ways you probably never did before, this is a great book for you.
Mar 14, Senien Hicks rated it it was amazing. I still use it to decode unconscious behavior of our race to this day.
This woman is a fringe kook but I have no doubt that mainstream psychiatry has plans to first classify any “racist” feelings among whites as a disorder and eventually even acknowledging that there is such a thing as race. This book also goes a long way to prove what Fraances often say that people who work in the mental health field are quite often mentally unstable themself.
The main point Welsing tries to get across in this point is that so called white racism is the result of an concious and subconci This woman is a fringe kook but I have no doubt that mainstream psychiatry has plans to first classify any “racist” feelings among whites as a disorder and eventually even acknowledging that there is such a thing as race.
The main point Welsing tries to get across in this point is that feances called white racism is the result of an concious and subconcious fear of whites that they will be “geneticly annihilated” through race mixing. I would agree with her that this is, and should be, a fear among the remaining sane portion of the white race.
But along with this basic thesis, which I believe has some basis she mixes in some completely wacked out anti-white claims that are so screwy its unintentionally funny. Her ideas about sports and balls are particuarly funny with her ramblings about smashing and hitting white balls. There are all kinds of weird sexual interpretations of white oapers in The Isis Papers.
She sees white penis everywhere, missiles, architecture, household appliances. My own Freudian analysis of Welsing tells me that she is sexually frustrated and would like to be ewlsing black dominatrix degrading white males or kicking white guys in franes nuts but also feels a conflicting paperz to be ravaged and dominated by a white man with a large penis.
Frances Cress Welsing Quotes (Author of The Isis Papers)
Welsing also claims that whites subconciously want to be black and gives examples like white hippies being dirty is an attempt to make their skin black and she states that whites like to rub fecal matter on themselves as a way to have brown skin! Not surprisingly she also states right off the bat that the title and idea for the book came from a patient of hers in a Washington D. C public mental health clinic.
Her ideas on racial origins are pretty wacky too. She says whites were albinos cast out of the tribe in Africa. Jews get a pass with Welsing. She says they are “mulattos” who are the result of Roman soldiers raping African women. I’m giving this book 4 stars mainly because I love to read fringe theories and ideas. Also for being one of the funniest unintentionally funny books I have read and also she does bring up something that I believe white people are afraid to discuss and that is we will potentially cease to exist if we fully accept universalism and randomly intermarry and breed with other races.

It gives insight into racial things in this country. Nov 09, Ty rated it it was amazing. The book takes a good look at the conditioning of the black mind.
As radical as many of Dr. Welsing’s theories are, when I began to look at things through her lens, I realized one simply cannot afford to overlook the fact that she is symbolically right.

Pyschiatrist Cress Welsing’s functional definition of racism – the local and global power system structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; this system 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.
The ultimate purp Pyschiatrist Cress Welsing’s functional definition of racism – the local and global power system structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; this system 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.
The ultimate purpose of the system is to prevent white genetic annihilation on Earth – a planet in which the overwhelming majority of people are classified as non-white black, brown, red and yellow by white-skinned people. All the non-white people are genetically dominant in terms of skin coloration compared to the genetically recessive white-skinned people.

This book was probably one of the most powerful texts I’ve ever read in terms of its complete analysis on how white supremacy’s fingers extend into every facet of life that can be controlled, thus producing devastating consequences that are still present through my existence as a ‘free’ black woman.
It’s unbelievable to me how much the author’s theory makes sense and how it can logically be connected to all subsequent actions that influence both public and private life with different levels of h This book was probably one of the most powerful texts I’ve ever read in terms of its complete analysis on how white supremacy’s fingers extend into every facet of life that can be controlled, thus producing devastating consequences that are still present through my existence as a ‘free’ black woman.
It’s unbelievable to me how much the author’s theory makes sense and how it can logically be connected to all subsequent actions that influence both public and private life with different levels of harshness based on genetic threat. The constant realization that my history extends to the beginning of humankind and not with the brutal and inhumane institution of black slavery always reminds me that my skin color is a result of the papeers of humanity and that I should be proud, difficult as ppapers may be living in a world that is oppressive.
Anyways, although some points were difficult to agree with and hence, jsis about the author’s observations of black existence in the modern world, it made sense This book was written francws thirty years ago and it still rings significantly true if not more potent with the extension of time into supposed equality for all.
It has inspired to me to learn about my history before white supremacy annihilated it. Oct 03, Randy rated it it paoers amazing. Frances Cress-Welsing was speaking from a Psychiatric understanding of the many suggestions all around us for frahces, even centuries, but on the subconscious mind.
