One aspect of current Leftist orthodoxy is the claim that racism requires the power to systemically persecute an ethnic minority, and is not possible by members of a minority. Is this accurate? So when a non-white psychiatrist gives a lecture at Yale titled "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind," in which she states that white people are "out of their minds," that "there are no good apples [among whites] out there," and that "white people make my blood boil," this is not racism. Nor is it racism when she says that she had "fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any White person that got in my way." What is racism? Are members of ethnic minorities capable of it? If, driven by racial hatred, she acted out this violent fantasy, would that be racist? Dr. Aaron Briley joins Andrew Bernstein and Bosch Fawstin to discuss this life-and-death issue.
