Quote of the Day

Natasha Stovall, a New York-based clinical psychologist, recently described “whiteness” as “a ghost” that haunts white people’s minds.

WHAT HAPPENED

“Whiteness is something that white clients are really split off from often,” Stovall said in a resurfaced clip from a March virtual salon sponsored by the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Work. “And then it comes back as a ghost and kind of interferes with psychotherapeutic work.”

 

Stovall, an expert on the psychology of whiteness, explained that patients “disavowal” of their whiteness “leads to the creation of a self that cuts one off from empathetic identification from people who are a different or ‘different’ in some way, and then at the same time drains off psychic energy of the person, of the white person.”

Confused? Just trust the science.
