Aruna Khilanani bombarded with 1-star ratings after ‘shoot whites’ Yale talk
The psychiatry specialist with over 16 years of experience in the medical field has received a deluge -- 86 one-star ratings -- of negative reviews on HealthGrades
Dr Aruna Khilanani, the Manhattan-based psychiatrist who gave a lecture at Yale University where she reportedly fantasized of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way”, has been receiving backlash in many forms -- one of which is negative ratings online.
Khilanani, who runs her own practice in Manhattan, delivered a talk titled “Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” to medical students and faculty back in April, virtually, after being invited by Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center. The talk, aside from daydreams of gunning down white people, also reportedly dismissed the possibility that any white person could empathize with people of color or understand racism. She supposedly said, “addressing racism assumes that white people can see and process what we are talking about.”
“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,” Khilanani allegedly said during the talk. She also said that white people feel they are being bullied when people of color bring up race and described it as a “psychological predicament”.
She reportedly said, “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.”
After audio of her 50-minute lecture was published on Substack by conservative journalist and provocateur Bari Weiss, the backlash has been constant. The psychiatry specialist with over 16 years of experience in the medical field has received a deluge of negative reviews on HealthGrades, a website that “provides the most accurate, comprehensive information about doctors and hospitals with data not available anywhere else -- giving you the full picture of a provider’s qualifications.”
Under Khilanani’s listing, the comments section turned into a bloodbath following the release of the lecture’s contents. Out of the website’s highest score of five stars, Khilanani currently has 1.2 stars - five five-star ratings, one two-star rating, and 86 one-star ratings at the time of writing this report.
And these ratings were accompanied by comments as well, some of which were very racist. "I personally don't feel safe around her," said one comment. "Dr Khilanani fantasies about killing people, specifically white people," said another.
One user commented, “It would be hard to have a great experience knowing this would fantasize about murdering me through our whole session.” Another said, “you need help and a good psychiatrist and some meds.. scary to know people like you are actually seeing patients. the most vulnerable come to see us may they beware of you and may the Lord protect them. May you be delivered and set free from your demons as they are in you not outside of you!!”
