A white psychoanalyst has published an article in a respected academic journal labeling whiteness as “a malignant, parasitic condition” that is “incurable” and arouses “perverted appetite,” it has been revealed.
dr. Donald Moss published an article last month entitled On Having Whiteness in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, the abstract of which is available online.
dr. Moss, who teaches psychoanalysis at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis, has been criticized online by other psychologists and psychiatrists for the new research.
Whiteness is a condition one acquires and then has – a malignant, parasitic condition to which ‘white’ people have a special susceptibility. The condition is fundamental and generates characteristic ways of being in your body, in your mind and in your world,” the article summarizes.
Parasitic whiteness makes its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable and perverse. This malformed appetite is mainly aimed at non-white people.’
The summary continues: ‘Once this appetite is established, it is almost impossible to get rid of. An effective treatment consists of a combination of psychological and socio-historical interventions.’

dr. Moss wrote that such interventions “may reasonably only be intended to reshape Whiteness’s infiltrated appetite,” calling whiteness a “chronic condition” for which “there is as yet no permanent cure.”
“The havoc wrought by the chronic condition can serve as both a warning (‘never again’) or a temptation (‘great again’). Remembrance alone is therefore no guarantee against regression,” he wrote.
DailyMail.com has contacted Dr. Moss for more information on how he arrived at his findings, as well as additional commentary.
Last February, Dr. Moss a lesson on having whiteness Class with the same messages as the new journal article. Tickets for the course cost $40 for members of the general public to attend the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies.
A leaflet shows that the ‘learning objectives’ for the course included teaching participants how toexplaining the concept of ‘internal racial identity’ and ‘identifying obstacles to clinicians’ working effectively with race issues in the therapeutic relationship.’
dr. Moss appears to have taught the same course in a presentation at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, although the description for that event was slightly different.
In that course outline, Dr. Moss that whiteness is “evil because it spreads/metastasizes, targeting an ever-expanding area of objects.”
‘It is parasitic because it is contagious and is passed on from other infected people. Biologically ‘white’ people have a special sensitivity. to ‘Whiteness,’ wrote Dr. moss.
“This susceptibility is based on pre-existing hierarchical representations of self and object – in each representation organizing the self and the other in a vertical relationship, powerful and powerless.”
He added: ‘For Whiteness, ‘color’ is the most perceptually available category over which to establish hierarchical relationships. Race offers ‘Whiteness’ the easiest target.”

People were quick to tell Dr. Moss for the “racist” article in posts on Twitter.
Psychologist Dr. Philip Pellegrino tweeted: ‘How do my colleagues view this scholarship?’
‘What about these magazines? Is it that no one cares anymore and they just post it, or are they afraid to offend the ‘awakened’ crowd, or are they ideologically driven? Does science play a role in this at all?’ the account @Jess3Livermore responded to Pellegrino’s tweet.
Another Twitter user wrote: “I was skeptical so I looked it up, and yes, this is real and now I want to throw my psychology degree in the trash.”
dr. Moss previously wrote a number of articles for scientific journals with tantalizing titles.
In a magazine article, he writes poetically about patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, titled: I and You – One Sentence Per Patient Per Session in the Time of COVID.

The meaning of the journal article was not immediately apparent, although a preview of it shows the article in the form of a poem or diary entry with the headline ‘Day 1’.
Under the heading, Dr. Moss: ‘Did you forget you could kill yourself? What if she slept with that other man? Yesterday the salad, today the biscuit. I live for the constant alarm, the 24/7. Then I switched to Armenian chants. Aren’t you saying it’s wrong? That’s what I did, and sometimes still do.’
The article continues: ‘My phone gives me weekly updates. Shut up and give me the baby. All I ask is for a Friday night dinner. We’ve earned this for a long time.’
dr. Moss also addressed “racism, homophobia, and misogyny” in a 2001 magazine article entitled: On Hating in the First Person Plural: Psychoanalytic Thinking about Racism, Homophobia, and Misogyny.
In the abstract for that article, Dr. Moss: ‘Effective psychoanalytic work with these hatreds involves resisting the moral pressure to differentiate yourself from them, while bearing the often profound discomfort that comes with identifying with them.
According to the American Psychoanalytic Association, he has studied “clinical/theoretical/activist perspectives” in psychoanalysis since the 1980s and is a member of a so-called “Green Gang” that attacks the “natural world” with “hate”.
