Quote of the Day

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


“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.
