A New York City psychoanalyst is being accused of racism after he published an “academic” paper in a peer-reviewed journal that describes “Whiteness” as a “malignant, parasitic-like condition” with “no permanent cure”.
Dr. Donald Moss — a faculty member at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis — has drawn harsh criticism from psychiatrists, psychologists, and social media users after publishing an article titled “On Having Whiteness” in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association.
“Whiteness is a condition one first acquires, and then one has — a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which ‘white’ 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,” the abstract for the article reads.
“Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse,” the abstract continues. “These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples.”
Later on, in the peer-reviewed article, Moss asserts that “effective treatment consists of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions,” adding that Whiteness is a “chronic condition” for which “there is not yet a permanent cure.”
“The ravages wreaked by the chronic condition can function either as a warning (‘never again’) or as temptation (‘great again’). Memorialization alone, therefore, is no guarantee against regression,” Moss writes.
Moss’s article, after going viral on social media, sparked outrage among academics and internet users alike.
Dr. Philip Pellegrino, a clinical psychologist based in Pennsylvania, took to Twitter to slam the paper, writing: “How do my colleagues consider this scholarship? Anyone actually take this seriously?”

Some even questioned whether the so-called “research paper” was authentic due to its explicit racism.
“I was skeptical so I looked it up, and yeah this is real, and now I want to throw my Psychology degree in the garbage,” one Twitter user wrote.
“This racist vomit should be called out for what it is,” another individual tweeted, adding: “This is the lowest and most dangerous form of racism masquerading as academic discourse. Shameful.”
Moss is the author of several books and has published over 50 articles that claim to connect “basic Freudian concepts to contemporary social and clinical programs.” In his biography for the American Psychoanalytic Association, Moss says that since becoming a psychoanalyst in the 1980s. the primary goal of his work has been to “understand and dismantle structured forms of hatred, racism, homophobia, misogyny, and xenophobia.”
Is anti-White racism becoming more brazen?
Over the past months and years, the strain of anti-White rhetoric coming out of the academic establishment in the United States has become increasingly virulent and concerning. In April of this year, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a second-generation Indian immigrant, forensic psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst — delivered a lecture at Yale University on “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind.” Her speech was recoreded and leaked
During the lecture, Khilanani uttered racist statements such as: “This is the cost of talking to White people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil.”
The woke New York City psychologist also confessed to fantasizing about shooting White people.
“I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any White 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. Like I did the world a fucking favor.”
When asked about her hateful comments, Khilanai said: “My work is important. And, I stand by it. We need to heal this country.”
