Yes, we do have racism today. But why? Rather than struggle unsuccessfully with the answer to this question, there is a better question to ask. Who?

The truth is we will not fully understand racism until we recognize that two largely unsuspected groups are actively and deceptively fostering racism throughout the world. The legacy of these groups includes such large-scale tragedies as the Nazi Holocaust, South Africa's apartheid and today, the widespread disabling of millions of schoolchildren with harmful, addictive drugs.

These groups are psychiatry and psychology.

For centuries, psychiatry and psychology have provided the "scientific" justification for racism.

In 1883, British psychologist Francis Galton created the term "eugenics," from the Greek word eugenes, meaning "good stock," and defined certain racial groups as "inferior."

Through their history of invented racial "diseases," psychiatry and psychology have not only legitimized modern racism, but also provided the justification for outright genocide.

In 1895, Swiss-German psychiatrist Alfred Ploetz published his theories about eugenics and race inferiority, coining the word Rassenhygiene (racial hygiene) and providing the "biological foundations" for the Holocaust.

In 1920, German psychiatrist Alfred Hoche published a book, Permission to Destroy Life Unworthy of Life, wherein he demanded euthanasia be conducted on "mental defectives."

Tens of thousands of black South Africans were incarcerated in psychiatric camps during the apartheid era, used for slave labor and allowed to die from untreated medical conditions.

Today, for minorities, Special Education is covert psychiatric racism; a means of getting millions of children hooked on mind-altering drugs, making them a new generation of slaves. However, the U.S. President's Commission on Excellence in Education revealed that 40% of children in Special Education were falsely labeled with learning disorders simply because they were not taught to read.

All psychiatric and psychological racist influence — in our courts, police departments, prisons, schools and universities — must be eradicated so that it can never again be used to oppress and degrade individuals.
