In 2015 Dylann Roof murdered nine people in a historically Black church in Charleston, South Carolina. This was an intentionally genocidal act. All the information available about Roof, and especially why he refused an insanity defense when facing the death penalty, allow formulations about the unconscious dynamics of murderous racism.
Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Explain why racist violence is intrinsic to the unconscious.
– Discuss how the mind can simultaneously function in a violently psychotic way, and appear normal at the same time.
