A New York-based psychiatrist who was invited by Yale University to give a talk titled Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind told the audience that she had fantasized about ‘unloading a revolver into the head of any white person’ who got in her way.

Audio of her 50-minute lecture was published on journalist Bari Weiss’ Substack blog on Friday.
Khilanani, who has previously taught at Cornell, Columbia and New York universities, made a series of stunning comments during her talk that was largely based on 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 said during the talk.
She went on to say that white people feel they are being bullied when people of color bring up race and described it as a ‘psychological predicament’.
‘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,’ she said.
