An official event at the Yale School of Medicine featured a New York-based psychiatrist telling students she fantasizes about “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.”
Disturbingly the talk entitled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” was held as part of the continuing program, the Child Study Center Grand rounds. The event was held in April, but audio only late this week of New York-based Dr. Aruna Khilanani gleefully musing about murdering white people became available and was posted on journalist Bari Weiss’s Substack.
The presentation by Khilaniani, who is described in a separate interview as a “Forensic Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst, with expertise in violence, racism, and marginalized identities” has since gone viral and earned widespread condemnation for its brazen and overt racism, which includes expressing a desire to commit genocide.
“I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a fucking favor,” Khilanani said at one point in the talk.
Prior to this, she had told the Yale students, “This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil.”
We are now in a psychological predicament, because white people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. 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. It ain’t gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall. It’s just like sort of not a good idea.

She further advocated not even talking directly to white people about racial issues, calling the endeavor “useless” as all white people “sound demented” according to her.
We need to remember that directly talking about race to white people is useless, because they are at the wrong level of conversation. Addressing racism assumes that white people can see and process what we are talking about. They can’t. That’s why they sound demented. They don’t even know they have a mask on. White people think it’s their actual face. We need to get to know the mask, Khilanani said.
A poster from the event confirmed the whole thing was officially sponsored by Yale.
This kind of extremist rhetoric has seemed commonplace of late at Yale and other Ivy League institutions. Over the past years there’s further been a number of firings of faculty or staff who dare to question it, or what it has to do with giving students an authentic academic formation and experience.
Rod Dreher at The American Conservative observed of audio of the event that “it’s hard to come up with a better example of the woke totalitarian capture of elite institution.”
