Another perhaps special, instance of the use of projection is the historic and continuing desire of whites for sexual alliances with non-whites- a desire indulged by white males throughout the world. This deep desire has been projected onto Black males and females, and is manifest in the notion that people of color have sexual desires for white males and females. The Color-Confrontation theory postulates that whites desired and still do desire sexual alliances with non-whites, both male and female, because it is only through this route that whites can achieve the illusion of being able to produce color. The extreme rage vented against even the idea of a sexual alliance between the Black male and the white female, which has long been a dominant theme in the white supremacy culture, is viewed by the Color Confrontation theory as a result of the white male's intense fear of the Black male's capacity to fulfill the greatest longing of the white female- that of conceiving and birthing a product of color.

At another level, white male homosexuality may be viewed as the symbolic attempt to incorporate into the white male body more male substance by either sucking the penis of another male and orally ingesting the semen, or by having male ejaculate deposited in the other end of the alimentary canal. Though anal intercourse, the self debasing white male may fantasize that he can produce a product of color, albeit that the product of color is fecal matter. This fantasy is significant for white males because males who are able to produce skin color are viewed as the real men. [My underlines]The Isis Papers Before I enter into why I provided the above quotes I want to address the second quote. If we take the above quote seriously then it should be suggested that this applies not only to homosexual white men but to heterosexual ones as well. In the example I'm going to provide we will see that anal sex is not (or no longer) necessary for the "fantasy". Now for the example:
My wife and I are white evangelicals. Here’s why we chose to give birth to black triplets.What rational reason would there be for a white couple to give birth to black triplets. And lets leave aside that until very recently such an act would have been impossible. What deep underlying psychosis would cause this couple to spend the money it takes to secure and implant the offspring of some other couple?
This past Sunday, my gorgeous wife – a white evangelical, like me — gave birth to our beautiful African-American triplet daughters whom we adopted as embryos.Adopted? Children are adopted. Embryos are bought and sold.
These sweet girls will hopefully soon be coming home to meet their 3-year-old African-American brother and 2-year-old biracial sister, both of whom we adopted as infants.So this is a habit then...
I grew up as a child of evangelical missionaries in Honduras, very aware of racial diversity because I was the blue-eyed, cotton-topped white kid who stuck out like a sore thumb, but all the while felt deeply connected to the people there, even though we looked very different.If you got this far and still thought the opening quotes were at a minimum "offensive", you might want to go back and read it again.
My wife, on the other hand, grew up in the delta of Mississippi and it wasn’t until she took a few trips to Haiti that the veil of racial prejudice was lifted from her eyes. One of the central themes of Christianity is, after all, that God, through His Son, is calling people from every tongue, tribe and nation.I missed the part of the Bible that called for seed carrying.
When we were still dating, a common bond that drew us together was the fact that Rachel and I both wanted to adopt. While we were fertile, we were both deeply convicted that one of the ways to be pro-life is to involve ourselves in adoption.Lets assume the above is truthful in terms of the outward conversation. Given what we've read so far, I believe the entire "pro life" and Christian angle is a cover for a deep desire on the wife's part to have black babies, as is done by high profile celebrities. On his part his desire to be seen as fathers of black babies is so strong that he is willing to cuck himself (apparently without the sexual intercourse) to raise the seed of other people.
Knowing that it is often more challenging to find adoptive homes in the United States for non-Caucasian children we informed the agency that we were willing to accept any child except a fully Caucasian child.Uh huh...
We did this with the deeply held conviction that if the Lord wanted us to have a fully Caucasian child my wife would conceive naturally.Uh huh....You'll note this is the only time "natural conception" is discussed. No one even bothered to ask them if they tried to have their own children.
There is something beautiful and enriching being the only white face sitting and chatting with some of my African-American friends as my son gets his hair cut on a Saturday morning. There is also something wonderful in the relationship that is built as my wife asks a black friend on Facebook how to care for our little biracial daughter’s hair.Per the opening quotes: Mission accomplished!
I felt sheer delight during this pregnancy watching my son and daughter, with his dark brown skin and her with the ringlet hair and slightly tan skin, kiss my white wife’s growing belly. Each evening they said good night to those three growing little girls in her belly, and now they get to finally say sweet dreams to their baby sisters — face-to-adorable-face.Did I step into a fetish magazine? Seriously though, how can this not be a textbook example of what I quoted above? HOw is this not using, to take a popular phrase, black bodies in order to salve deep seated genetic self-hatred? The delight at knowing black bodies were growing in his wife's belly (which I assume he had his penis near at some point closely timed to implantation).
I can remember a friend going through the adoption process telling me he had always wanted his family to look like a little United Nations.This is telling us that this is not just one person. I will remind the reader that most interracial marriages/breeding that involve black people are in the form of black male and white female. And that incidence has grown to about 30% (whereas in the 1970's or so, it was maybe 5%). At the very least we can respect those that don't cover up their desires with "Pro life" and "Christian" values. But these people are examples that makes the Isis Papers not something you can just dismiss out of hand (though it does contain some items that are factually wrong among other things).
