The diseased minds of the mental health experts.

Every profession has one or two prominent monthly publications which anyone working in the area have to leaf through if only to stay familiar with what’s happening or what’s currently en vogue. You leaf through, reading anything that catches your eye. Last month, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association published a fully peer reviewed paper on the subject of blackness. The author, Donald Moss, came to some startling conclusions.

Rather than rehash the contents of the whole paper, it’s easier to just reproduce its abstract.

“Blackness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “black” 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. Parasitic Blackness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target white 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 Blackness’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.”

These conclusions may seem extreme, but the paper did clear a peer review process, so it obviously represents mainline thinking in American mental health circles. Looking around, I came across another peer reviewed paper in the American Journal of Community Psychology. Its abstract is broadly supportive of Moss’ startling conclusions and is reproduced below.

“Community psychology is expressly concerned with social justice. Such concern necessitates attention to race. Yet, nearly absent from the field’s literature is explicit and critical attention to blackness. Thus, community psychology’s contribution to promoting social justice remains incomplete. In this article, we examine how a critical construction of blackness can be useful for community research and action. After a brief history of the construction of blackness in the United States, and a summary of key insights from critical blackness studies, we present a scoping review of the nascent body of community psychology literature that addresses blackness. That work implicates blackness in the emergence of the field itself, frames blackness as social location, problematizes blackness, addresses Black supremacy and institutional racism, interrogates Black privilege, and employs blackness as a theoretical standpoint. We conclude with three propositions for scholars to broker the relationship between community psychology and critical blackness studies: (a) community psychology should become more critically conscious of blackness, (b) community psychologists should promote critical awareness of the ways that blackness operates as a complex system, and (c) greater critical awareness of blackness should be applied to the development of multilevel interventions aimed at dismantling blackness as a system of domination.”

The three authors of this paper – Brett Russell ColemanCharles R CollinsCourtney M Bonam all show long and I must assume distinguished histories of publishing papers on various aspects of psychology. All four of these people have backgrounds in teaching or in some cases treating people with mental problems.

These things do tend to come in threes. Only last week it came to light that a New York-based psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Aruna Khilanani had given a lecture at Yale university in April on her problems dealing with the black mind, the “psychopathic problem of the black mind.” The highlights of her lecture to the faculty and student body included “I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any black person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step”.

Her conclusions about her black patients were even more startling. The Black presented as a “demented, violent predator who thinks they are a saint or superhero.”.

One can only find it impressive just how much a highly learned person can deduce about someone simply by the colour of their skin. I guess MLK got it wrong after all. You have to judge people by the colour of their skin and the content of their character is irrelevant. I guess all the blacks I met over the years were just statistical outliers.

Patently, all I’ve done here is a global edit to change the noun white to black and let’s face it, the results are stark. It brings into sharp contrast the dire state and political degeneracy of the both the educational and therapeutic sides of psychology. Bear in mind that while they’re lecturing young students, they in some cases are treating patients.

These people themselves have a schizophrenic if not paranoid view of reality but it gets worse. They’re not isolated one offs, they’re all a group in the same bubble just reinforcing their nearly psychotic view of crime and appropriate punishment. Ask any criminologist what happens when two psychotics meet up. For once, they have validation of each others sick view of the world and it only escalates from there. This extremism you’ve just read is typical of that escalation.

I’ve only ever seen such language and stereotypes before in publications like Julius Streicher’s Der Stürmer when talking about Jews or old 1930’s American publications talking about those damn sub-human niggers. This is filth and when it’s being taught to malleable young minds in universities, it’s a form or intellectual venereal disease that in some cases will lurk in the primordial mud of the victim’s id for the rest of their lives.

Nearly a decade ago I wrote about this type of academic legitimisation of nothing more than hatred and bigotry. People of authority in academia and the sciences letting people know know it’s officially okay to hate and punish others for their race, colour or religion gave an academic justification for the holocaust and so many other examples of mass brutality. Some were very personal, like hanging that uppity nigger from a tree, some were just everyday bigotry like back of the bus or segregated drinking fountains stuff.

I’ve been on the receiving end of it personally and could have had an easier younger life by going along with it, but a youthful mix of anger and pride wouldn’t allow me to renounce my background or demean myself to people which even in my salad days I could plainly see were nothing more than a sad, smug coterie of well-educated scum.

That fact that sicko zealots like these can be given a platform at once prestigious places of learning like Yale merely indicates how much these places have become debased wastelands out of touch with everyday reality. They even put the words of the classic behavioural sciences psychopath up on Yale’s website.

If you’re young and have the SAT scores to get into somewhere like Yale, Harvard or Princeton, consider if getting yourself $150,000 into debt for a useless piece of paper from somewhere whose cachet has long since disappeared with potential employers is really worth it. Newsflash – they regard Ivy League colleges as nothing but shitholes producing ill-educated dross these days. If you really must have a piece of paper that’s worth something, my advice would be to go for one of the faith colleges. Nowadays, they’re the happy hunting grounds of recruitment agencies tasked with finding young, hungry talent.

Times change. We’re now in an era where we’re going backwards in science, politics and art, and the charge back to a pre-enlightenment era when faith, superstition and feelings trumped reason is being led by the former bastions of free thought, Jean Jacques Rousseau’s woke inheritors and a degenerate artistic leitmotiv.

When I was a young man, my father, who’d seen the true face of war and had few illusions about it, told me with his far away look of long-ago bad memories that I knew brooked no further enquiry, that war was bad but there was nothing worse than a civil war. I fear he might’ve been wrong. If these idiots get the race war they’re trying to foment, God help both blacks and whites.

    Peter Grant covered this on June 10th at , so I was initially confused by your substitution of black for white. That substitution might make some heads explode, though, before they go check the original and find it was against white people.

    Personally I don’t reckon skin colour as important at all, except for the vitamin D production rate that means that dark-skinned people living too close to the poles need to spend more time in the sun that’s there. Culture is way more important, and people of good character can accommodate others’ culture and can absorb the useful bits of each others culture. Fusion cooking is an example here that is non-contentious, though I expect some Karens will complain of cultural appropriation.

    This “psychoanalysis” has echoes of Eugenics, where some races are vermin and to be exterminated. In its time, Eugenics was well-respected and was considered good science. It justified taking children from women in Ireland, the UK, Australia, Canada and other places, and treating them as orphans to be brought up the way the people in charge wanted. It justified ethnic cleansings, too. Strange thing is that there is no such thing as racial purity, since as far as we know each person has unique DNA and is thus a minority of 1 (even identical twins gain some DNA difference AFAIK).

    You can gain a lot of power and money by telling people they are the chosen race, and that it’s OK to oppress (or rob or kill) others not of the chosen race, and that once you’ve got rid of the vermin then things will be much better.

    Your changing the oppressor roles in the statements by these people is telling…

    People not being judged by the their character but by their skin colour is truly obnoxious.
