A New York-based psychiatrist has sparked considerable outrage after she told an audience at the Yale School of Medicine that she had fantasized about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person who got in my way." Prominent social media figures have now called for her license to be revoked. 

Dr Aruna Khilanani, who has her own practice in Manhattan, delivered the talk titled "Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" to medical students and faculty in April after being invited by the Ivy League college's Child Study Center. Audio footage from her lecture was published on journalist Bari Weiss' Substack blog Friday, June 6, per the New York Post.

During her talk in April, Khilanani made a series of shocking statements largely based on what she thought was the psychology behind "whiteness."

"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 brazenly told her audience

She accused white people of having a "psychological predicament" that made them feel bullied when people of color brought up race in a conversation. "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," Khilanani declared. "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," she added.

People online lashed out at the New York-based psychiatrist over her "racism" and called for her license to be revoked.

"The racism expressed by Dr. Aruna Khilanani in a Grand Rounds at Yale, just released by @bariweiss & @kittypurrzog, is deeply worrisome & counter-productive. Of course, as an invitee, she is free to speak on campus. But her views must be soundly rejected," Yale Professor Nicholas Christakis tweeted.

"Dear @aruna_khilanani, if I'm not mistaken, you are the presenter of the talk in question. If I'm a Lebanese Jew, do I suffer from the psychopathy of the white mind, or do I possess the noble architecture of a brown mind? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's brown!" Lebanese-Canadian psychologist Gad Saad added.

"Read it and weep. Grand rounds. Psychiatrist Yale. Say no more," conservative psychologist Jordan B. Peterson commented.

"Unless your entire persona is an elaborate prank, you are one of the most pathologically racist people who has ever opened her mouth. Your rhetoric sits very comfortably beside that of the 20th Century's worst perpetrators of genocide. Your words are poison to humanity," one Twitter user wrote.

"I wonder how fairly you graded your white students considering the violent fantasies you hold towards them? You should immediately stripped of your position of power and investigated," another chimed in.

"I read the interview. Projection, narcissism, and circular reasoning. Would love to see you debate an actual psychologist who can see these subtle maneuvers for what they are instead of being interviewed by a clueless, common ‘journalist’. Your license should be revoked. #donoharm," a third added.
