Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, best known for her book “The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors” died in Washington D.C. of complications from a stroke early Saturday. It’s reported that she was 80.
The Washington Informer reported Welsing was taken to MedStar Washington Medical Center and was kept alive by ventilator until her passing.
n 1991, she published “The Isis Papers” which further outlined her arguments on White supremacy and how it had permeated society in many forms. She theorized that it comes from a White fear of genetic annihilation, which had been historically focused on Black males.
In the White supremacy mind-set, consciously or subconsciously, Black males must be destroyed in significant numbers -just as they were in earlier days when there was widespread open lynching and castration of Black males, or during the Tuskegee Syphilis Study from 1932 to 1972 when a large number of Black males were used and destroyed by Whites.
.“We must revolutionize ourselves,” she said in a 1987 interview with Essence magazine. “Whether White people are consciously or subconsciously aware of it, they are behaving in a manner to ensure white genetic survival. We must know this truth. And the truth is the first step toward real strength.”
