  3. Derek Hook - On the ‘Pleasure of Hating’: An introduction to the idea of racism as ‘enjoyment’

    Historically, we are accustomed to thinking of racism as the outcome of ignorance or intolerance. Most approaches miss a central feature of everyday racism, namely that it hinges on a type of passionate intensity. This talk introduces the notion that racism entails a type of ‘enjoyment’ (or libidinal arousal) which is present both in the ‘pleasure of hating’ and in attributions of others as possessed of a toxic, excessive enjoyment (by virtue of "their" music, food, religion, etc.). A systematic exploration of a core set of ideas (racist enjoyment as involving a dialectic of possession, a relation of enjoyment resentment that comes before the arrival of the racial other, the notion of libidinal treasures, the moral dimension of racism) suggests that they might be more workable, indeed, essential, to how we think about and act upon racism today.

  4. What does Jordan Peterson think of Institutional Racism?

    This issue is very important to me. Of my JBP videos this one is my most autobiographical. https://youtu.be/GZR2xldACd0 I’ve always seen racism as a very big deal but I’m increasingly disturbed at how the fight against it is turning into a liturgy of self-righteous shaming. I think this is counter productive in the long run.

    Peterson is easily and commonly smeared on racism if he doesn’t embrace the ascendant imagined SOLUTION to racism. Anti-racism is increasingly a religion of its own and if you fail to invoke the demanded liturgy you are denounced. This is a dangerous development because polarization will make matters worse.

    Peterson answer the question on racism in institutions as ONE factor among many in institutional tyranny. It isn’t the ONLY factor but if you talk this way the cult of anti-racism will denounce you for being insufficiently holy.
