A New York psychiatrist during a speech earlier this year at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center said she fantasized about “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.”
Audio of the speech by Dr. Aruna Khilanani, "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind," was published online in journalist Bari Weiss' substack.
Yale restricted online access to Khilanani's expletive-filled talk, saying it was “antithetical to the values of the school.”
Khilanani, who is of Indian descent, during the online lecture recalled an encounter with a white therapist telling her she was "psychotic" whenever she expressed anger at racism.
"[T]his is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry," she said.
"There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
She mentioned how she "systematically white-ghosted most of my white friends.
"And got rid of the couple white BIPOCs that snuck in my crew too. I stopped watching the news. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I have less than one percent left. It was also a public service. 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 f*cking favor."
She later said discussing racism with white people was hopeless.
“We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero to accept responsibility,” she said. “It ain’t going to happen. They have five holes in their brain.”
Khilanani told the New York Times that her words had been taken out of context to “control the narrative" and said her lecture had “used provocation as a tool for real engagement.”
“Too much of the discourse on race is a dry, bland regurgitation of new vocabulary words with no work in the unconscious,” she said. “And, if you want to hit the unconscious, you will have to feel real negative feelings.”
She added: “My speaking metaphorically about my own anger was a method for people to reflect on negative feelings. To normalize negative feelings. Because if you don’t, it will turn into a violent action.”
