This presentation is based upon a very simple
premise; namely, that in their relationship with the
Illack race, Europeans (Whites) are psychopaths and
their behavior reflects an underlying biologically
transmitted proclivity with roots deep in their evolutionary
history. The psychopath is an individual who is
constantly in conflict with other persons or groups. He
is unable to experience guilt, is completely selfish and
callous and has a total disregard for the rights of
olhers. This premise is supported by overwhelming
scientific evidence. (See references 1-6 ) T’here is a
scicntific dictum which states that “everything that
exists, exists in some amount and if it exists, it can be
One of the best methods that can be used to
measure the psychopathic traits of the White race is by
observing and analyzing their universal overt behaviors
and attitudes toward Blacks. However, in doing that,
since Blacks have been enslaved and colonized by
\\’hites, a very subtle psychological problem is posed
that every Black should be aware of, i.e., merely having
inteilectual insight about Whites does not insure that
there will be a corresponding change in Blacks’ behavior
and attitude toward them, even when there is a threat
involved or particularly when there is a threat involved.
For example, everywhere one finds Whites and Blacks
in close proximity to each other, the Whites are in
control, u’herther it is Chicago or Zimbabwe. Yet, Blacks

raise this cluestion with admonitions such as “we should

mental conditions which are clearly the result of White
oppression. On the contrary, Blacks are held responsible
for the deterioration of their communities even though
all of the property is White controlled. In addition,
municipal services are withdrawn from Black communities
and most of these communities have been ‘.usedup”
before Blacks are allowed to move into them.
In the fields of mental health and drug abuse,
Whites are at their psychopathic best. The United
States g,evernment’s position on drug users is that
addicts are cured when they cease anti-social behavior,
regardless of how long they have to be “maintained” on
methadone or other drugs. Drs. Jerome Jaffe and
Edward Senay, the czars of the U.S. Drug Abuse
Program, with the assistance and protection of Black
addicts and “ex-addicts,” have created one of the most
destructive programs in the Black community, namely,
the “methadone maintenance” program. The United
States government is the largest supplier of drugs to
addicts in the Black community. Senay takes the
position that Black addicts should not be given
“placebos”* or just plain orange juice. This writer takes
the position that if “sexually frustrated” suburban
White housewives can be given “sugar pills” rather
than real drugs, why can’t Black addicts be given
orange juice without the methadone since they cannot
tell the difference? Senay states that giving Black
addicts pure orange juice without the methadone is
“unethical.” Therefore, it can be deduced that doctors
such as Senay believe that it is an “honorable” act to
give Blacks drugs. Community mental health centers
are in such disarray that space does not permit an
adequate discussion. They are underfunded and therefore
understaffed with the usual staffing pattern
consisting of all White professionals and all Black

the patient might believe he is receiving medication, he is not.
The Psychopathic Racial Personality
lowly-paid non-professionals. Additionally, almost
every existing center uses the “medical model,” i.e., the
belief that the major problem is the Black person
without any regard to his circumstances or environment.
Furthermore, the center and government agencies
are heavily influenced by the American Medical Association
which is one of the most overt racist and
probably the most powerful organization in the United
States. A very vicious funding game is played with
Black mental health centers in which the U.S. Government
supplies funds with the stipulation being that the
Black community must find “matching funds.” Needless
to say, there are usually no matching funds for Black
mental health programs, therefore, the federal funds
revert back to the U.S. Government.
Psychopaths also reject constituted authority and
discipline. The presence of this trait in the White race
has grave implications for Blacks who seek legal
solutions to their problems. This especially applies to
the Blacks in the United States who are the world’s
only legally created group, namely, through the i3th,
14th, and 15th amendments which can be repealed at any
moment by the Congress or declared unconstitutional
by the Supreme Court. As long as this condition exists
Black people in the United States will always be legally
five minutes away from slavery. For Blacks in the
United States to place their destiny in the hands of
Supreme Court Justices is an extreme form of psychological
blindness and a pathological rejection of historl’.
The Supreme Court of the United States has alwavs
used the prevailing White political climate as rh(‘
criterion in dealing with questions of race. For examplc.
as a result of that “infamous” 1954 school desegragation
decision, Blacks have lost an estimated 35,000 teaching
and administrative positions in the South. Former
Bobby E. Wright
Black principals of Black schools are now janitors in
integrated schools and the same thing is going to
happen to Black teachers in the North. Eventually, the
Supreme Court is going to find the 1954 decision
“unconstitutional” but by that time Whites will have
taken over all Black schools including the Black colleges.
The psychopathic behavior of Supreme Court
Justices is consistent with that of other White professionals,
e.g., lawyers, doctors, judges, and politicians..
They consistently take advantage of Blacks without
any guilt, anxiety, or threat to their self-esteem. For
example, in the Black community, White doctors are
the largest group of “drug pushers.” They prescribe
unneeded and dangerous drugs along with performing
unnecessary operations. White scientists use Blacks in
very destructive studies, e.g., the Tuskegee experiment
where Black men were denied treatment for syphilis
and there is some evidence that many could have been
deliberately infected.
The role that White scientists have played in
Black oppression should not be surprising to Blacks for
they have been the planners of Black oppression and as
a rule never ask “why” but only “how,” This behavior of
White scholars, e.g., Jensen and Schockley, are classic

proposed that Blacks had smaller brains than Whites
and since “brain efficiency” depended on the number
and position of nerve cells and fibers in the brain,
Blacks had less capacity for development than Whites.l2
Dr. Carl Jung, one of the White giants of psychology
stated that White Americans’ sexual inadequacy was
due to their having to live together with a barbaric race
(Blacks). The Whites’ use of scientific justification for
racial oppression can be found in even the most
inadequate library. What makes White scientists such
as Schockley and Jensen so dangerous to the Black
community today is that not only do they present socalled
“scicntific proof” of the Black threat but they
also offer solutions, and with the present level of
technology available to them, should not be taken
lightly. However, it is self-defeating and useless for
Black scientists to debate on the question of race with
White scientists such as Schockley and Jensen using
the mass media. White scientists simply want exposure
of their ideas. Additionally, it is pathological for a
Black to discuss the question of whether Blacks should
exist or not with Whites. For all other people, simply
raising a question about their existence is tantamount
to a declaration of war.
This then is the psychopathic personality of the
matador. The one constant in this ever changing world
is the behavior of the White race in their relationships
with Blacks. This is a very challenging problem and the
inevitable question is “what should Blacks do?” One
dilemma that is posed for Black people is the consistent
appeal that is made for liberation by them through
channels created for them by the psychopaths, namely,
democracy and communism (marxism). A cursory
examination of both systems immediately points out
the futility of Blacks giving them any more consiiJobby

deration” Blacks must accept the reality that for the
White race, democracy and racial oppression are not
conflicting ideals. The fact that Blacks have been
enslaved for over 850 years by a dernocratic form of
government should be evidence enough. Furthermore,
a democratic government presupposes an inherent
equality of races, therefore, it does not provide methods
of liberation for those who are not equal. Communism.
can be dismissed as an aiternative with even less
discussion. For it to be viable requires cooperation of
the masses of the White’race and, with that being the
primary condition, needs no further consideration.
However, since Blacks have finally rejected clemocracy
as an alternative by attempting to burn down its
bastion, the United States, there are signs that it is
now time for the marxists (communist) to try to contain
them. ‘I’hey have enlisted some formidable Black allies,
e.g., throughout Africa, the Black heads of state have
rejected race as a criterion for struggle. The Black
leaders go to great lengths to deny our struggle is
racial, yet, the only truly independent nations on the
African continent are those headed by the Wtrite invaders.
One of the greatest tragedies is the relationship
between Blacks and the Arabs. For Blacks to accept
the Arabs as an-vthing but White invaders is a pathological
denial of realitl’. in the oil crisis, the slave
traders from the North (,\rabs) treated Black Africa
worse than they treated some European nations which
is consistent behavior for \Vhite ps1’chopaths. No White

Black Suicide
In the not too distant past, suicide in the Black
community was virtually non-existent. In. fact, tn
considering all possibilities of life and death, suicide for
Blacks was not an option. Further, all the traditional
reasons that have been projected as enhancing the
suicide dynamic did not manifest themselves in the
Black community. On the contrary, the conditions that
produced the feelings of helplessness, hopelessness,
powerlessness, etc., which create havoc for European
people, seemed to have strengthened the resolve of
Blacks who considered them as being part of our destiny.
Therefore, suffering for Blacks was and is a way of
bf.e, not death. It was out of this cultural imperative
that the “Blues” developed (and is now being stolen)
and revealed the incomparable “Soul of Black Folks.”
It should be noted that centuries before Whites
“discovered” existentialism, Blacks had accepted (unfortunately)
that “to live is to suffer and the ultimate test
is the meaning a people find in that suffering which
dictates the way they live and die.”
Given this historical reality, the question must be
raised as to how could a people, who in the worst of
times endured, now allegedly reflect one of the highest
suicide rates in the United States? In view of that
question, it is generally assumed by Black and White
scientists alike that traditional research analysis can be
applied to the allegedly Black suicide phenomena in
order to understand its dynamic. However, as this
author and colleagues have warned time and time
again, the most serious error a Black scientist can make
is to utilize European definitions and analysis in
attempting to understand and explain Black phenomena.
There is no denying the fact that “they who have
the power to define, rule.”

Rv lhis ti*;’ tht’ ;eade.r should be aware that I am
rrsing u,lt’n-ttut]itt”””i^onroach in examining “Black
suicitlL’,” ancl it is based on zr very simple premise: that
Illack Suicide
Blach suicid.e Ls a political dynamic. For political
reasons, Blacks are being programmed for self-iestruction
and “Black suicide” is one of the results. Lynching
by any other name is still lynching. The method thal
has been developed and is now being implemented
cannot be found in any of the litcrature or in any
research data, but it is one of the greatest discoveries of
psychology. The author has classified this process as
“mentacide,” (Wright, 19?6) which is defined as the
deliberate and systematic destruction of a group’s minds
with the ultimate objective being the extirpati,on of the
group.” For example, the acceptance by Blacks of the
concept of “free will” absolves Whites of any responsibility
for their victims’ condition. In faci, Whites
have developed an effective defense mechanism, namely,
“the guilt of the victim.” It is so effective that their
victims accept their plight as being,,God’s will.”
It should be noted that “mentacide” is a worldwide
phenomena which is being implemented against the
entire Black race. Therefore, Blacks in Africa will begin
to manifest the behavior of Blacks in the United Statls.
It’s also clear that there is a direct correlation between
the level of White involvement and control of Black
institutions and Black self-destruction.
This analysis should not be surprising to anyone
who has studied European history and is familiar with
their objective of world domination: and due to the
rising level of consciousness and Black nationalism
which threaten that process, mentacide was developed.
Approximately, fifty-five years ago, a White professor
of psychology at the University of Chicago proclaimed
to the world this prophesy: “Give me a dozen healthy
infants, well-informed, and my own specified world to
bring them up in, and I’ll guarantee to take any one at
random and train him to become any type of specialist
20 Bobby E. Wrighr
I might select-doctor, lawyer, artist, merchant, chief,
and yes, beggar-man and thief, regardless of hi. t”il;;;; penchants, tendencies, abilities, vocations, and the race
of his ancestors (Watson, 1924).”
The popularly called ,,behavior modification’, is a highly complex “qcience” which is underrated and generally ignored by Black behavioral scientists. yet,
any Black with a cursory knowledge “experimental of B.F. Skinner,s analysis of behavior” should recognize its potential danger to our community, where
situation is under the control of the white race. It” “.aruls.yl
clearly defines the Black Community as still being
enslaved and the prophesy of B.F. Skinner in Beyon’d
Freedom and Dignity is now a reality (Skinner, tgltl.
Skinner articulated that it is possible io ,,delude,; people
into believing that they have the essence of life_
freedom and digriity-and still control them. It should be clear that there cannot be an analysis
of “Black suicide” using traditional white techniques
because to do so would assume an inherent equaiity
between Blacks and Whites. It ignores the prevention
of opportunity, options, and control by Blacks over their
own destiny. In fact, a critical analysis of even White
suicide would raise serious questions concerning the
validity of Durkheim’s (the penultimate, White ,tod,,
of suicide theory) basic premise that the suicide rate for
any given social-area population varies inverselv with
the “stability and durability” of sociar relationships
within population (Durkheim,. 1951). For example, tle
death of a U.S. soldier who thiew himself on a grenade,
would be classified as an ,,altruistic” suicide by
Durkheim, and the soldier considered a person who has
lost his personal identity as a result of the group’s
authority becoming dominant, and he sacrificed his iife
for the group. Yet the U.S. Army does not treat
Black Suicide
or identify a soldier who commits suicide. on such an act as a the contrary, he is considered a hero and given the highest honois. Ho*”rr”., a kamikaze Japa- nese pilot who crashes his plane into an American shio is considered,,crazy” and ,,suicid”l.;. Fr;il;; #;;J: then propose and receive ,”*””..f, grants with the stated purpose of attempting to u.rJerstarrd the ,,Asian.,
In view of this-discussion, it should be very clear that the problem of so-called ni; suicide cannot be resolved at this time. To believe otherwise presupposes a sense of direction and level of power that does not exist in the Black community. filru is no intent to imply that our situation i. rtop”r”.r since a solution is readily available: the creatio” of u” african world_view through the development of u Bi;;k Sociat Th;;.y.1 social theory determines the destiny of a d;i; ;; establishing objectives and guidelines for their exis_ tence. It defines their relationship with other living things, it defines values and rituaii, methods of ch’d- rearing and education, etc. The ultimate achievement of a Black Social Theory would U” th” reintegration of a worldwide Black culture.
trlxampre after example can be cited about how Blacks have attempted to .esolve p.obt”^, ,h-il; variety of efforts orrly to end up in a weaker position. For example, the aftermath of the igOO,, or our present condition proves the importance oi u grulk’s;;i
Theory’ Blacks in the 196b’s *e.u di’uided along *i* social theoretical lines only to end up with the same pre-60’s choices, namely, Wt it” capitalism or White Marxism.
