A New York City-based psychiatrist recently told a Yale audience that she fantasizes about shooting white people in the head, burying their body and walking away guiltless.
Dr. Aruna Khilanani said she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way” during virtual remarks in April.
Audio of Dr. Aruna Khilanani’s remarks can be heard here.
The psychiatrist also said “white people are out of their minds” and their brains are damaged and demented: “They have five holes in their brain. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall.”
The New York Post reported (emphasis ours):
Khilanani opened her remarks by telling the audience, “I’m gonna say a lot of things, and it will probably provoke a lot of responses, and I want you to just maybe observe them in yourself.”
She then added “prayers up for DMX” before discussing what she described as the “intense rage and futility” people of color purportedly feel when talking to white people about racism.
“We are calm, 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,” Khilanani said. “It always ends that way, happens every time. Like a goddamn timer, you can count it down.
“Nothing makes me angrier than a white person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet,” she said — before talking about how she “systematically” cut off most of her former white friends “around five years ago.
“I stopped watching the news,” Khilanani continued. “Once I started, I couldn’t stop.”
“It was also a public service,” 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 f–king favor.”
