Medical Doctors Are Now Making Calls For ‘Proactively Antiracist Agenda For Medicine.’ Here’s What That Means.Michael Cantrell
In a bid to supposedly be “anti-racist” in the area of medicine and treatment for people in the country, doctors are now advocating changes be made to the system so that if you have a grandma who happens to be withe, she might be skipped for treatment so that a person of color can get treated instead, due to a “proactively antiracist agenda for medicine.”
An intelligent person will immediately note how this is completely and totally racist in and of itself. It’s the left attempting to get rid of “racism” in the medical field — which may or may not actually exist — by creating racism. You don’t fix something that’s broken by breaking it more.
According to a piece published by Red State, Drs. Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse are advocating for this “anti-racist” agenda and are fighting desperately to see that these sort of actions are implemented, caring little for the ramifications of this kind of system and the thinking behind it might affect the already troubled health care system.
Morse wrote about this agenda in a piece for the Boston Review, describing it as “offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity” in full awareness that it violates civil rights law and will “elicit legal challenges,” said columnist Wesley Yang in a post on Twitter, but ” in confidence that recent WH executive provides backing.”
Here’s a portion of Yang’s tweet on this madness:
Offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity may elicit legal challenges from our system of colorblind law.
“But given the ample current evidence that our health, judicial, and other systems already unfairly preference people who are white, we believe—following the ethical framework of [philosopher Naomi] Zack and others—that our approach is corrective and therefore mandated.
“We encourage other institutions to proceed confidently on behalf of equity and racial justice, with backing provided by recent White House executive orders.”
This is just another very dangerous application of critical race theory, a Marxist ideology that says America is foundationally racist at its core, including all of its institutions. Thinking of this nature could lead to a total violation of medical ethics, particularly the Hippocratic Oath.
You cannot put out a fire by using more fire. This is common sense.
