Duquesne University is based in Pittsburgh and calls itself one of America’s most prominent Catholic Universities. Derek Hook is an associate professor of psychology. He is also a Professor at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and has a Youtube Channel where he talks about “post-colonial” politics.
Hook is a promoter of Marxist Critical Theory but takes things even further. He calls for the eradication of White people as a race.
As part of a so-called “Anti-Racist” panel discussion for The American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work [AAPCSW], Hook spoke to other psychologists about his extremist views. The panel was called “Nice White Therapists.”
Here we see Derek Hook defending the writings of Terblanche Delport, a lecturer at the University of South Africa, who has advocated for White people to commit suicide “as an ethical act.” Hook states that Delport is provocative, but “there is an ethical dimension” for promoting White suicide. The Duquesne professor says there is value in urging White people to imagine how much better the world would allegedly be if White people ceased to exist.
Hook delivered the incendiary speech on June 12th, 2021, using Zoom. The video was posted on Twitter recently and then immediately deleted when the Twitter account @MythinformedMKE re-tweeted it.
Some of Delports most atrocious quotes:
“The only 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.”
“Whites should die.”
“We [Whites] should be prepared to die silently, without having children, so that white supremacy could come to an end at last.”
Duquesne University is 78% White.
Professor of Psychology at Duquesne University Derek Hook, defends the quote “white people should commit suicide as an ethical act” as an “opportunity” to “castrate whiteness”.
