New York City Dr. Donald Moss published a recent article with his evaluation and idea of white people’s serious condition of their own whiteness.
In the paper titled “On Having Whiteness,” Dr. Donald Moss, a psychiatrist with 50 years in the field, defined whiteness as a “malignant, parasitic-like” condition that does not have a permanent cure, according to the abstract found featured in SAGE.
“The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples,” wrote Moss.
Moss has authored numerous papers in the past including “On Hating In The First Person Plural: Thinking Psychoanalytically About Racism, Homophobia and Misogyny,” “Masculinity as Masquerade”, and ” On Situating Homophobia,” according to SAGE.
While Moss notes that there isn’t an available cure for “whiteness,” he advised in his paper that those afflicted by it should be treated with “psychic and social-historical interventions” to deter their negative behaviors.
“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,” Moss wrote. Shortly after the paper was published by the American Psychoanalytic Association, users took to Twitter to voice their opposition to the publication of the piece [Daily Caller].
