A New York-based psychiatrist who recently told a Yale audience that she fantasizes about shooting white people in the head, then claimed her comments were taken out of context, has now declared that all white people are psychopaths.
Dr. Aruna Khilanani initially made waves when she said during a speech at Yale that she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way” – then burying their body with her bloody hands.
“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.”
“We keep forgetting that directly talking about race [with white people] is a waste of our breath,” Khilanani also said during the talk. “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.”
Audio of Khilanani’s lecture dubbed, “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” can be heard here.
Khilanani went on to claim that her statement was taken out of context.
However, she has now doubled down hard during an interview on Thursday with “Black News Tonight.” The host, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill, is a Temple University professor who was fired by CNN for antisemitic remarks.

“Would it be fair to say, based on your expertise, that white people are psychopathic?” Hill asked.
“I think so, yeah,” Khilanani answered. “I think that there’s many lies … the level of lying that white people do that has started since colonialism, we’re just used to it.”
She added, “every time that you steal a country, you loot, you say you’ve discovered something. I mean, this level of lies is actually part of history.”
“We don’t say that we killed all these people, we got rid of all the Native Americans, we say we discovered America. You don’t talk about the level of death. You don’t talk about the level of what actually occurred,” she continued. “You wipe the slate clean, you sanitize the violence – and you actually got lost along the way, trying to go to India — and then you say you discovered something. And this level of ‘discovery’ is everywhere. You discovered vegetarianism. You discovered yoga. You discovered — everything is a discovery and it’s all actually stolen.”
Khilanani also said during the interview that everyone is racist, ironically.
She stated that “people have this idea that racism is something if you are consciously racist or if you’re a Klan member. Racism is something that is unconscious and that it is in everyone. Everyone uses these words systemic, that [they] know racism is systemic. But when you call it out individually…people disown their own violence and racism.”
