Yale backs away from psychiatrist who said she fantasized about shooting White people
Yale University now appears to be distancing itself from a psychiatrist who said during a School of Medicine talk that she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any White person,” saying in a statement that officials found her remarks “antithetical” to the institution’s values.
Dr. Aruna Khilanani has been facing criticism after making the controversial comment during an April 6 virtual speech at Yale’s Child Study Center titled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind.” In it, the New York City psychiatrist also said that “White people make my blood boil” and “White people are out of their minds and they have been for a long time,” according to audio posted on the substack online platform of former New York Times opinion writer and editor Bari Weiss.
“After the event, several faculty members expressed concern to the Yale School of Medicine’s Office of Academic and Professional Development and the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion about the content of the talk,” Yale said in a statement released over the weekend.
“Based on these concerns, School of Medicine leaders, including Dean Brown and Deputy Dean Latimore, in consultation with the chair of the Child Study Center, reviewed a recording of the talk and found the tone and content antithetical to the values of the school,” it added.
Khilanani opened her speech by noting that she is going to “say a lot of things, and it will probably provoke a lot of responses, and I want you to just maybe observe them in yourself.”
