A New York City psychiatrist, Dr. Aruna Khilanani, confirmed her belief Wednesday that white people are “psychopathic,” saying they lie to themselves with a false sense of identity that makes them unable to discuss issues of race.
Fox News reports:
“The intention is to actually talk about unconscious negative feelings, because if we’re not actually aware of unconscious negative feelings, it’s going to turn into a violent action,” Khilanani said after far-left host Marc Lamont Hill asked about her intention with the comments.
“So of course I don’t want to kill White people. That’s completely ludicrous,” she added. “But I think through my words, White people feel like they’re actually getting murdered because my words are troubling. It’s going to cause the death of their preferred self-image, the image that they’ve had through colonialism of being good, helping and teaching.”
“Would it be fair to say based on your expertise that White people are psychopathic?” she was asked.
“I think so. Yeah … the level of lying that White people do that has started since colonialism – we’re just used to it,” Khilanani said. “Every time that you steal a country, you loot, you say you’ve discovered something. I mean, this level of lies [is] actually part of history.”
Dr. Khilanani then explains why distinctions between individual and structural racism can be useful, but also troublesome. pic.twitter.com/bRhBlxdIy8
