Dr. Goodings wrote her thesis for her doctorate on the positive effects of violence on young Black men in America. Her premise was that it is human nature for young maturing men to war and that this violent inclination is a part of their growth process. She further asserted that since Black American men have no country worth fighting for, it is a natural function for them to act out in society with their Black rivals and against the White establishment that oppresses them and, yes, she claims violence against women as well. She does not encourage violence against women, she simply provides the practical rationale for it. Dr. Goodings promotes that society should not punish these actions, but that it should make efforts to submit to it and acclimate this tendency into an accepted part of the evolution of society. She states this evolutional activity will occur until the Black American is back in charge of their survival and that White society must face this reality. For this dissertation, UCLA applauded her and installed her as a tenured professor at 25 years old. Dr. Goodings is a regular talking head on social affairs shows and panels.
