Assesment of her preference of audience:
I think Dr. Cress-Welsing wrote this book for the MASSES. There may have been some jargon here and there but overall the content is in a language that is overall simply comprehensive for all to read without overuasge of metaphors, idioms and other poetic language that could distort the message. An example of an author who uses poetic/distorted language in his content is Dr. Cornell West. His 1993 book "Race Matters" was clearly written to appease the white establishment or his fellow black bougiousie contemporaries. There was a lot of "talking around" the race issue or circular thinking vice linear thinking, confronting race head on, which Dr. Cress-Welsing does in this book.
Assessment of theory:
As for her theory, there may be some holes here and there. However, the overall content is EMPIRICAL! Based on facts and simple observation! Simply assess your environment and you will find parallels to Dr. Cress-Welsing's theory. It's in the media, it's within the monuments across this nation. It is literally across all areas of human activity!!! Simple observations that are not subjective but OBJECTIVE. As another reviewer stated, her content is no spooky angel/devil stuff. This is the real deal! Once again, a must have!!!!
This book should be required reading for black youth, especially non-white youth collectively. Because of Dr. Welsing's scholarship I am dedicated to making myself a better person and always displaying MAXIMUM black self-respect.
The Cress theory makes sense and explains many things that we as a people cannot otherwise account for.
I highly recommend this book for anyone living in the Diaspora. As you can see in the comment section those of different persuasion missed the mark in not only the relevancy of Structural Systemic White Supremacy is at its basic core an attempt to prevent White Genetic Annihilation and the most profound fact which scientists of the Drapetomania remnant TODAY refuse to release to the public is whites have Black Recessive Genetic material which makes it impossible to produce Melanin bringing a host of genetic and psychological neurosis.
Oh this is a good book.
