Aruna Khilanani Wiki – Aruna Khilanani Bio
Dr. Aruna Khilayani is a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who runs her own practice in Manhattan. She was caught making racist comments during a talk at Yale University. Titled ‘The psychopathic problem of the white mind’, Khilayani addressed students virtually on April 6th.
A recording of this conversation was sent to Bari Weiss, who later posted it on the Substack blog.
Khilayani is a psychiatrist currently living in New York. According to a biography, he has an MA. in critical theory from the University of Chicago.
He also graduated from the university’s medical school in 2006 and interned at Bellevue Hospital in NYC in 2007.
The Daily Mail reports that Khilayani has previously taught at Cornell, Columbia and New York universities. The board-certified psychiatrist claims to be an expert on violence and racism, racial identity, sexual identity, and the prison population.
Khilayani is a prolific social media user beyond his private practice.
We found a Facebook page, Instagram profile, Twitter account, and TikTok account that she used very often, mostly to post about racism. On April 28, he posted a chart on Facebook detailing “3 tragedies that can happen if white people don’t deal with their hate properly.”
On April 18, she uploaded a video on Instagram saying “the biggest racists are Liberals and White Feminists.”

Universities have become hotbeds of recent racism against both Black and White populations.
But the sharp rise in anti-White rhetoric has surprised some. Cornell University recently opened a rock climbing course just for BIPOC students. “All Whites are racist,” Brandeis University official Kate Slater wrote on Instagram in late May. Earlier that same month, Iowa State University professor Rita Mookerjee tweeted that she was trying to “limit as much as possible” her interactions with White people.
Khilayani’s comments seem to be in line, with anti-White comments being made publicly with little backlash.
Instead, Khilayani criticized Yale for not making the video of her speech public, claiming they promised to do so.

Dr. Khilayani gave the talk virtually to medical students and faculty in April, after being invited by the Yale School of Medicine Child Study Center. Khilayani, who has previously taught at Cornell, Columbia and New York universities, made a number of striking comments during her talk.
Much of his speech was based largely on the psychology behind “whiteness.”
Aruna Khilanani Twitter
A quick scroll through her social media indicates a strong anti-White bias.
On April 20, she tweeted, “Is everyone else holding their breath since jury deliberations began? White people have a history of never doing the right thing.” She has also tweeted in the name of MaKhia Bryant, Duante Wright, George Floyd and other African-Americans killed by the police.
On April 6, Khilanani addressed the Child Study Centre at Yale where she made her comments.
She told attendees, “White people make my blood boil”, and “White people are out of their minds and they have been for a long time.”
Perhaps her most controversial comment though, came when she said, “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.”
Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind
today’s good trouble:
the title alone tells you why they do not want it open.

To this, Khilanani replied, “If you eliminate the difference here f—— it’s okay, so shut up, you’re the real racist.” Reportedly, the conversation was public, but the recording of Khilanani hitting TikTok was never made public.
“My talk at the Yale Child Education Center has just been published internally. It’s anonymous and anonymous like the privilege it protects,” he claimed in a video.
According to Weiss, Yale limited recording of the talk to only those with a school ID. It was also posted with a trigger warning for “blasphemous and violent images.” The university has yet to comment on why Khilanani did not make her speech public or respond to allegations that she was “suppressed”.
“Taking racism assumes that whites can see and process what we’re talking about. They can’t. That’s why they sound crazy.”
“They don’t even know they have masks. White people think this is their true face. We need to recognize the mask,” he said.
At various other points, he described white people as ‘out of his mind’ and said that he ‘made his blood boil’.
