A professor at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh argues it would be an “ethical act” if white people just committed suicide.
As is frequently the case with liberals, the professor, Derek Hook, who himself is white, is apparently unwilling to follow his own advice on what constitutes ethics.
Still, Hook apparently was an advocate for an end to other white people.
According to the conservative website The College Fix, the video was posted on Twitter in late August by a group opposed to critical race theory, Mythinformed MKE.
“This is part of an ‘anti-racist’ discussion on ‘nice white therapists held by the [American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work],” the group posted on social media.
In the brief video, Hook discusses South African philosophy professor Terblanche Delport, who in 2016 advocated for whites in his country to off themselves.
The video features a slide presentation that has the quote “White people should commit suicide as an ethical act” at its top.
Hook uses a Delport quote that states, “The only way for white people [in South Africa] to become part of Africa is to not exist as white people anymore.”
“If the goal is to dismantle whoite supremacy, and white supremacy is white culture,” Delport continued, as quoted by Hook, “then the goal has to be to dismantle white culture and ultimately white people themselves.”
“Here’s the kind of crazy gambit of this talk,” Hook said during the video. “I want to suggest that psychoanalytically we could even make the argument that there was something ethical in Delport’s statements.”
“I want to make the argument that there is some kind of ethical dimension to his provocations,” the professor added.
“I think Delport took his white audience to the threshold of a type of symbolic extinction,” said Hook, adding that his source wanted whites in South Africa to contemplate the “castration of whiteness.”
A little amazing that a psychologist could see something “ethical” about ending one’s own life. A lot less amazing that this is what passes for scholarship and teaching in an American university.
