Psychiatrist Invited To Yale Spoke Of Fantasies Of Shooting White People

Published

on

Dr. Aruna Khilanani, a professional psychiatrist in New York, was recently invited to give a lecture at Yale University’s School of Medicine. Most of the attendees were utterly shocked with the racism-laced, profanity-filled talks, prompting the university to impose restrictions on her program for being “antithetical to the values of the school.”

Dubbed “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind,” the talk was part of Grand Rounds by the School of Medicine’s Child Study Center. Grand Rounds is a forum that focuses on mental health, with Yale faculty and staff as participants. This session with Khilanani was unexpected and has since sparked criticisms for its racist tone aimed at caucasian people.

“White people are out of their minds, and they have been for a long time. White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race,” she said.

“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 favor,” Khilanani said in her expletive-laden lecture.

A recording of the session also caught the psychiatrist saying “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.”

Dr.Carol Swain, an African-American former Princeton professor, slammed Khilanani for the overtly racist message that she has been spewing in her lectures.

“She should not be practicing medicine. What she says matters. There are lunatics that may be listening to her speech right now that will go out and act on her fantasy. She has planted that in someone’s mind,” Swain said in an interview with Lawrence Jones.

“That statement should have ended the career of that doctor because she is unfit to practice medicine. This is ridiculous, this is unprofessional, it’s un-American, it’s probably illegal. If not, it should be,” Swain added.

Khilanani seems unperturbed by the attention that she has been getting for her controversial lecture and even took a jab at the “double standards” of some universities.

“What I’ve always noticed is that the universities seem to reward the ones who make the most outrageous, the most hate-filled statements. It’s been that case ever since I’ve been in academia,” Khilanani said.

Yale clarified their stance on the incident through an official statement.

“Yale School of Medicine expects the members of our community to speak respectfully to one another and does not condone imagery of violence or racism against any group,” the statement explained.
