He defended a proposition by a fellow professor
Duquesne University Professor Derek Hook said there are merits to the argument proposed by another professor who argued that it would be ethical for white people to kill themselves.
The anti-critical race theory group Mythinformed MKE posted the video recently. “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 video appears to be from a summer session hosted by Hook, though the content is not otherwise publicly available.
“White people should commit suicide as an ethical act,” the top of a presentation by Hook said.
He quoted from a South African philosophy professor named Terblanche Delport, who wrote in 2016 about white people killing themselves.
Delport allegedly made similar comments in 2016, in reaction to racial division in the former apartheid state.
