Among the race-based inquiries in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association (JAPA) was an essay called On Having Whiteness. It’s by Dr. Donald Moss who holds faculty positions at Psychoanalytic institutes in San Francisco and New York.
As highlighted by Newsweek there’s a considerable level of concern by other psychologists as to the divisive nature of the content.
Despite being a white man himself, Dr. Moss thinks his race has a “particular susceptibility” to being “parasites.” By that he means white people have a sense of entitlement that has enabled them to seize power “without limit, force without restriction, violence without mercy,” and can become terrorists as a result.
"Such interventions can reasonably aim only to reshape Whiteness's infiltrated appetites -- to reduce their intensity, redistribute their aims, and occasionally turn those aims toward the work of reparation. When remembered and represented, the ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as warning ("never again") or as temptation ("great again"). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression. There is not yet a permanent cure."
James Lindsay of “Grievance Studies” fame commented saying that it impressed even him about the contents of the journal article exceeding the level of academic parody that his team deployed during their studies.
The intellectual stylings of Donald Moss are not the only attraction in JAPA’s latest issue. In other papers of flagellation against white people for existing we have “Observations on Use of the N-Word in Psychoanalytic Conferences” and “The Historian’s Self-Reflection and American Racism.”
This is par for the course for the profession of psychiatry. Most recently Dr. Aruna Khilanani told a panel at Yale University she had fantasies of killing white people. When the comments surfaced online she defended her behavior as a means of expressing herself as a person of Indian background.
In Dr. Donald’s free time he discusses the subject matter of xenophobia and misogyny regularly, being a founding member of the “Green Gang” group that focuses on “climate change and its denial.”
