Laws allowed men to ‘rape Black women’; claims Dante King during lecture at UCSF

The University of California, San Francisco recently hosted a speaker, Dante King, as part of a Black History Month event, where he delivered a lecture titled “Diagnosing Whiteness and Anti-Blackness: White Psychopathology, Collective Psychosis, and Trauma in America.”

King’s lecture has stirred controversy, as he seemingly disparaged White people, labeling them as psychopathic and attributing certain behaviors to a biologically transmitted proclivity rooted in evolutionary history.

During the approximately 90-minute lecture, clips were compiled by the Young America’s Foundation, showcasing King’s statements that fueled the controversy. He boldly asserted, “Whites are psychopaths,” suggesting a deep-seated proclivity within the evolutionary history of Whiteness.

“Whites are psychopaths,” King said. “And their behavior represents an underlying, biologically transmitted proclivity with roots deep in their evolutionary history. How many of you can see the proclivity that evolved deep within the evolutionary history of Whiteness? By show of hands, how many of you could see it? Some people are sitting here, ‘Oh no, I don’t want to raise my hand,’ that’s called denial.”

King went further, accusing White people of engaging in extensive lying, particularly since colonial times, and asserting that this behavior has become ingrained in their culture.

King’s provocative comments extended to the foundation of American institutions, asserting that “Anti-Blackness” is the bedrock of all White American establishments.

In a particularly inflammatory remark, he claimed that raping Black women is “written in the law,” arguing that discussions about the delusions and perversion of Whiteness are lacking. According to King, this is not merely gaslighting but rooted in psychological delusion, emphasizing that rape culture is embedded in America’s legal, economic, and moral institutions.

The controversial nature of King’s lecture reached another level when he seemingly defended violent crimes, especially those committed by teenagers and young individuals.

King urged the audience to consider such actions as part of human nature, making a sweeping statement that could be interpreted as justifying criminal behavior.

In response to the backlash, Fox News Digital reached out to Dante King’s team for a comment. The reply included notes from King’s presentation, citing three state Supreme Court decisions from 1855, 1859, and 1918, which he claimed allowed for the rape of Black women.

The notes also referenced multiple state laws between 1802 and 1858, supposedly focused on protecting White women. Notably, King’s notes did not cite a state law that explicitly allowed for the rape of Black women, but he argued that Black women and non-white women were exempted from these rape statutes and laws.

The controversy didn’t stop at the content of the lecture. Reporters also reached out to the University of California, San Francisco for a comment, but as of their report, the school had not responded. Despite the controversy surrounding King’s remarks, he is scheduled to speak at the university again in March.

Critics argue that King’s statements perpetuate harmful stereotypes and contribute to racial tension, while supporters may see it as an opportunity for frank discussions about historical injustices and their lingering impact. The role of universities in shaping these conversations comes into focus, prompting a reexamination of the balance between academic freedom and the responsibility to foster an inclusive and respectful learning environment.
