New York Psychiatrist Admits in Yale Lecture to Fantasizing About Shooting White People

Aruna Khilanani
by Eric Lendrum


A psychiatrist from New York City went on a racist rant back in April in which she expressed her desire to kill White people simply because they are White, as heard in recently-revealed audio of the lecture, the New York Post reports.

The comments were made by Dr. Aruna Khilanani during a lecture to the Yale School of Medicine on April 6th. She said that she dreams of “unloading a revolver into the head of any White person that got in my way,” and that if she did so, she would leave the scene of the crime “with a bounce in my step.” She added that White people “make [her] blood boil,” and also believes that White people “are out of their minds and have been for a long time.”

The lecture was titled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind.” During the speech, Khilanani talked about “learning objectives” such as “[setting] up White people’s absence of empathy towards black rage as a problem,” and also claiming that “White people are psychologically dependent on black rage.” These details, along with the full audio of the lecture, were posted online via Substack on Friday, by former New York Times editor Bari Weiss.

During the lecture, Khilanani claimed that minorities always feel an “intense rage and futility” whenever talking to White people about racism, and that “we are clam, we are giving, too giving. And then when we get angry, they use our responses as confirmation that we’re crazy or have emotional problems…Nothing makes me angrier than a White person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet.”

Khilanani at one point even admitted to having “systematically” cut all ties with most of her White friends “around five years ago.”

On the subject of discussing racism with White people, Khilanani said that “White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race…We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath. We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero to accept responsibility.”

Neither Khilanani nor Yale faculty responsible for the lecture responded to media requests for comment about the substance of the lecture.

7 Thoughts to “New York Psychiatrist Admits in Yale Lecture to Fantasizing About Shooting White People”

  1. Dr. Ken Jensen

    After writing above, with a little research this isn’t the first time of a psychiatrist envisioning shooting people. Army psychiatrist Nadal Hasan not only had the same thoughts, he acted on them. I believe it was Fort Hood where he opened fire on US serviceman killing many. Hasan too, was thought to be a crack pot but not one acted. Why isn’t anyone in New York referring her to the State’s Medical Board? Given her warped mind, she is incapable of treating anyone regardless of race as she has no objectivity, no morals and no judgment. Her license to practice would likely be revoked or suspended. I question the judgment as well of Yale University. Hopefully their donors will say enough of this garbage, no more donations. I guarantee you that will get the full attention of their administration.

    Does the doctor understand Red Flag laws?
    Does the doctor understand professional licenses can be revoked for threats under Red Flag laws?
    As a physician, the doctor is licensed by the federal government to prescribe medications.
    The statements by the physician indicate an unstable individual.

  3. Traditional Thinker

    Yet white people are the racist ones…these liberals are below animal standards at this point in time. They have been given over to a reprobate mind. There’s no other explanation than that.

  4. Nashville Deplorable

    Defund psychiatrists!

  5. AWM

    And this nitwit will be allowed to continue her “hate” speech because ……………..?

  6. Dr. Ken Jensen

    Time and again I have heard “one of us doesn’t speak for all of us”. Thus, he neither speaks for the profession nor his race. For every Aruna there are 50 minority psychiatrists who reject his vile, hateful message. This psychiatrist’s rage toward white people is truly pathological. The state medical board needs to intercede to see if he is competent to treat patients of any race given his impairment. Likewise, any university needs to reassess if he is an appropriate lecturer. In a clinical setting this man is sitting on the wrong side of the desk.

    sounds like the title of her book was projecting – she is the one with a psychopath mind.

    who wants to bet she is a member of the ‘party of tolerance’?
