[The New American] A prominent psychoanalyst is currently on a speaking tour in which he argues that simply being white is a mental condition that one acquires by being born Caucasian. The presentation, entitled “On Having Whiteness,” is being given by Dr. Donald Moss and is targeted toward other psychoanalysts and social workers who can earn continuing education credits for attendance.
Moss, a private-practice psychoanalyst from New York, argues that whiteness “is parasitic in that it is contagious, passed on by other infected people,” and that “biologically ‘white’ people have a particular susceptibility to ‘Whiteness.’”
Moss himself is a white man. No word on whether he suffers from the affliction himself.
Last year, “On Having Whiteness” was a plenary address for the South African Psychoanalytical Association and was also recently featured at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Moss is also scheduled to present his work in February at the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies in New York.
