Aruna Khilanani at it again, this time calls White people 'lying psychopaths'
'I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way,' Khilanani had said during a Yale lecture in April
Disgraced psychiatrist Dr Aruna Khilanani from Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, has come under fire once again for her problematic remarks towards White people in a new interview. The New York-based psychiatrist referred to White people as 'lying psychopaths' during her appearance on Marc Lamont Hill's Black News Tonight. As she was being questioned about her controversial Yale speech from the past, Khilanani this time said, "The level of lying that white people do that has started since colonialism, we're just used to it."
Host Marc Lamont Hill asked her, "Would it be fair to say, based on your expertise, that white people are psychopathic?" To this Khilanani responded, "I think so, yeah." In April, Khilanani had given a lecture on 'The psychopathic problem of the White mind' at Yale University, during which she said, "White people make my blood boil.....White people are out of their minds and they have been for a long time. She further added, "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------ favor." Her shocking comments created a furor after Bari Weiss published the recording of the lecture on her Substack blog.
On Thursday, June 17, 2021, Khilanani appeared on 'Black News Tonight' to clarify and elaborate on her controversial Yale speech. There she shared her opinion about how White people had 'sanitized' the horrors and violence of colonization, accusing them of taking credit for the discovery of things that already existed.
She stated, "Every time that you steal a country, you loot, you say you've discovered something. 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 actually talk about the level of what actually occurred."
Khilanani, who is of Indian origin, further claimed that White people have stolen the practices of vegetarianism and Yoga. "This level of discovery is everywhere. You've discovered vegetarianism, you know. You've discovered yoga. Everything is a discovery. And it's all actually stolen," she said.
Her controversial remarks at the interview added up to the negative impact of her Yale speech. During her April lecture, Khilanani had said, "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 (White people) 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."
