(American Greatness) — A psychiatrist from New York City went on a racist rant back in April in which she expressed her desire to kill white people simply because they are white, as heard in recently revealed audio of the lecture, the New York Post reports.

The comments were made by Dr. Aruna Khilanani during a lecture to the Yale School of Medicine on April 6. She said that she dreams of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way,” and that if she did so, she would leave the scene of the crime “with a bounce in my step.” She added that white people “make [her] blood boil,” and also believes that white people “are out of their minds and have been for a long time.”

The lecture was titled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind.” During the speech, Khilanani talked about “learning objectives” such as “[setting] up white people’s absence of empathy towards black rage as a problem,” and also claiming that “white people are psychologically dependent on black rage.” These details, along with the full audio of the lecture, were posted online via Substack on Friday by former New York Times editor Bari Weiss.

During the lecture, Khilanani claimed that minorities always feel an “intense rage and futility” whenever talking to white people about racism, and that “we are calm, we are giving, too giving. And then when we get angry, they use our responses as confirmation that we’re crazy or have emotional problems … Nothing makes me angrier than a white person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet.”

Khilanani at one point even admitted to having “systematically” cut all ties with most of her white friends “around five years ago.”

On the subject of discussing racism with white people, Khilanani said that “white people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race … 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.”

Neither Khilanani nor Yale faculty responsible for the lecture responded to media requests for comment about the substance of the lecture.
