White People Problems

Modern psychology has studied numerous social and racial groups. So it’s curious that a field mostly made up of white practitioners has yet to take a serious look at what it means to be white. Psychologist Natasha Stovall joins host Krys Boyd to talk about why it’s taboo to study how white patients worry, reckon, or rage about their place in the social system; her recent essay on the topic appears on the website Longreads.
