“Whiteness” was described in an article appearing in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association as a “malignant” part of white people “to which ‘white’ people have particular susceptibility.”
Written by Dr. Donald Moss, the offensive description of white people was written in his paper called “On Having Whiteness.” The psychoanalyst, who teaches at New York Psychoanalytic Institute, wrote in his abstract, “Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has — a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which ‘white’ people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world.”
The abstract continues by saying, “Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate.“Effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions. 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.”
The conclusion of the shocking peer-reviewed abstract says, “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.”
This paper sent shockwaves across the internet, causing many psychiatric professionals and academics to call out Moss’s offensive and outrageous claims.
How do my colleagues consider this scholarship? Anyone actuality take this seriously? #science #psychology

A peer reviewed psychoanalytic journal calling whiteness a disease that needs to be cured.
The entire “mental health” industry is irreparably broken. Absolutely infested with this kind of madness. https://t.co/nz0AJ4IHBS
