I'm going to go out on a bit of a limb here, so please don't jump down my throat, but I'm inclined to believe that entertaining murderous racist rampages is perhaps counterproductive.
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.
Be honest. As you read that sentence, tell me this image didn't pop into your head.
However, this was not some lunatic spewing racist hatred on the street, the kind of person you'd give a wide berth to as you pass by and maybe say a prayer and then call social services. No, this was Dr. Aruna Khilanani, a practicing psychiatrist giving a virtual talk at the prestigious Yale University School of Medicine.
It's not even a matter of her being some loose cannon going off script.
This was the script.
The title of the talk?
"The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind."
You'd think that would raise some red flags, and in a manner of speaking, it did, but only those tiny little ones utilities use to mark buried electrical cables.
In her interview with Herzog, Khilanani also shared an e-mail she said was forwarded to her from the dean that read: "Good morning, I was surprised to see the announcement for tomorrow's [talk]."
"I imagine replacing the words ‘white mind' with ‘Asian mind' or ‘gay mind' as we work towards equity and inclusion and unity. I wonder what impact this presentation will have," the dean wrote.
This timid, almost fearful, response is coming from a dean who just learned that someone was going to give an explicitly racist presentation, "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind," under the imprimatur of his esteemed university.
Khilanani responded, "When I'm breaking this down psychologically, what they're saying on some level is like, ‘We need things to be the same. If you can say white, we can say Asian.'"
Which is what you do in a colorblind, non-racist society, but that's not what people like her want. They want an explicitly racist society in which the spoils of the economy are distributed based on your "identities," by people like her. (One for you and two for me...)
"Psychologically, they're actually making a false equivalence," she said. "What they're doing psychologically is obliterating the difference between white and Asian, and if you obliterate the difference there's no f——— problem here, so shut up, you're the real racist. That's how it functions psychologically."
There are a couple of things here to unpack.
First is her comical employment of "psychologically" before and after every sentence. She is trying to create a gloss of science and expertise over her racist statements.
You don't hate science, do you?
Second, in her effort to refute the argument against her, she actually supports it. Namely, if you believe there is no difference between the races, that is we're all just human beings, then people like her who say there is a racial difference are open to the charge of being racist themselves.
And that's the real danger here. How do you bridge that chasm? It's a fundamental difference, one explicitly racist claiming not to be, and one genuinely not.
Bari Weiss got her hands on an audio recording of the talk and the flyer used to promote it.
There was never any mystery what this talk was going to be about.
These were the "learning objectives."
The entire construct and premise of there being a "white mind" is racist, period, and we should refuse to normalize this kind of talk.
Understand How white people are psychologically dependent on black rage.
Again, racist. Also, what?!
Thats not even the real kicker. This was for credit, part of the "YaleCME," or "Continuing Medical Education."
So, what did people really get out of this for-credit presentation?
"Nothing makes me angrier than a white person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet," she said — before talking about how she "systematically" cut off most of her former white friends "around five years ago."
I feel the need to remind everyone that Khilanani's day job is helping people with mental health issues.
At least she's thoroughly familiar with the topic.
This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil.
All white people are bad.
[White people] are confused, and so are we. 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. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall.
All white people are "demented, violent predators."
Can you believe this?
You can listen to her 51-minute presentation here if you'd like. This is not an official recording, but rather one that was sent to Bari Weiss, so the audio is quite poor. Yale is in fact holding up releasing a recording of the talk. Khilanani is of course outraged. She wants this out! Seriously. She thinks that is a good idea.
If nothing else, she is truly passionate and committed to her race hatred.
In fact, she has made a series of Tik-Tok videos about Yale refusing to release the presentation, which are unsurprisingly equally unhinged with one even accompanied by a strange bouncy sound track. She weaves this conspiracy across a number of videos about how Yale was giving her various excuses as to why the video was still not available.
I believe her in that Yale is too cowardly to confront her and say why they did not want to release the video ("you are a racist lunatic" is a really short conversation, don't even need HR for that one), but that's not what's offensive about her TikTok videos. It's the casual, constant, racist comments.
Just a few choice excerpts.
Video 7: "Remember, for white people, newly reporting a chronic issue is not a lie, it's just that they forgot."
Video 9: "White people don't want a record... And they did exactly what I said white people do."
Video 10: "You'll probably consult lawyers, because they're f——— white."
Did you notice she uses profanity a lot? That's always a reliable sign that you're dealing with a higher intellect. Or a sailor.
This is where we are: a licensed, practicing professional can give a talk in which she spews the most violent, racial hatred imaginable, things that would get you, me, and everyone else here kicked off of every social media platform and probably get our Amazon Prime account and Netflix subscriptions cancelled to boot, and the elite gatekeepers at Yale are trying to find someplace to hide.
