April 7, 2023 — Internal Racism
M. Fakhry Davids, a British psychoanalyst, has formulated a theory of how racism becomes an internal structure in the mind. His theory posits that “the internal racist organization is . . . a pathological organization that occurs in the “normal” mind,” built on a projective process interacting with awareness of the social meanings of difference in the external world. The reading is dense but rich and very thought provoking. Our plan is to spend two weeks talking about Davids’ ideas and we encourage you to consider reading it through a second time.
