I wonder Marley K. if you have come across the writings of Dr Frances Cress Welling? the very active ways in which white silencing and erasure occurs means that it is very difficult for us to keep hold of the toch of learning that is independet of white approval. Our living is made precarious as we lose our jobs, get pushed out of academia, our publications die out and books that took huge effort to write and publish, in the face of malicious opposition, become unavailable.
Dr Welling is an honorable ancestor indeed, a person of great integrity and intelligence as well as moral courage. Her writing is unique in bringing a psychological/anthropological analysis to bear on the question of white aggression towards all other cultures . She developed a fascinating theory about the deep-seated inferiority of white collective, from which arises its centurie-s long desperate need to degrade all people of colour and assert superiority. 'The Cress theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism' demonstrates her originality and genius in describing the origins of white supremacist thought and systems of violent, vicious, domination.
