(WND News Center) – A psychology professor at Duquesne University is raising eyebrows by agreeing with another educator who says it would be ethical for white people to kill themselves.

“White people should commit suicide as an ethical act,” says the top of a video presentation by professor Derek Hook at the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, college.


The video was posted by the anti-Critical Race Theory group 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 wrote on Facebook.

The College Fix noted “the video appears to be from a summer session hosted by Hook, though the content is not otherwise publicly available.”

Hook, who himself is white, was quoting from Terblanche Delport, a South African philosophy professor at the University of Pretoria who wrote about white people killing themselves in 2016.

“[T]he only (life) purpose for whites, specifically Afrikaners, is to await their death or to commit suicide, like the samurai falls on his short sword when he has fallen into disgrace,” Delport said, according to Radio Free South Africa.

“White supremacy could only be ended once whites are dead,” continued Delport, who also is white. “We should be prepared to die silently, without having children, so that white supremacy could come to an end at last.”

“Here’s the kind of crazy gambit of this talk,” Hook said in his analysis. “I want to suggest that psychoanalytically we could even make the argument that there was something ethical in Delport’s statements.”

He suggested white folks could symbolically kill themselves or undergo metaphorical “castration.”

“I want to make the argument that there is some kind of ethical dimension to his provocations,” Hook continued.

“I think Delport took his white audience to the threshold of a type of symbolic extinction … he took them to a proposed end of whiteness.”

The Biden Administration has incredibly given permission to U.S. embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag alongside the American flag for the rest of the year.

This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!

Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!

According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to "hang BLM flags" "for calendar year 2021."

"As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission."

"The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact."

Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:

  • Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
  • Defunding of our police departments
  • The overthrow of the nuclear family
  • Perpetual marxist revolution

Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that "All Lives Matter," rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.

The Biden Administration's promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.

And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: "Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government."

This kind of cultural imperialism and coercion is downright insulting to our allies and partners abroad.

But, it also demonstrates how the current U.S. administration is beholden to the radical leftist element of the Democratic Party -- which is downright insulting to most average Americans.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition demanding that the U.S. Department of State rescind permission to fly the BLM flag at U.S. embassies around the world.

Then, please CONTACT the Department of State by email or by telephone, to politely, but firmly, demand that only the U.S. flag, and not the BLM flag, be flown at U.S. diplomatic installations.

The State Department may be contacted by email at this webpage: https://register.state.gov/contactus/contactusform

The Office of the Secretary of State may be contacted at this telephone number: 202-647-4000

According to his Duquesne biography, Hook is a “scholar and a practitioner of psychoanalysis with expertise in the areas of Lacanian psychoanalysis, post-colonial theory (the work of Frantz Fanon in particular), the psychology of racism and critical social psychology.”

The College Fix noted: “The American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work is a liberal group that previously called on President Trump to resign days before his term in office ended due to the violence at the Capitol.

“The group ‘believes that Donald Trump’s presidential powers must be immediately revoked,’ according to a January 13 statement. ‘He has demonstrated an exploitation of such powers through the consistent promotion of racist groups and ideologies.’”
