Under 'Critical Race Theory,' Racist Medicine
Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital is hosting an "anti-racist" medical initiative, to be replicated at other hospitals, in which medical decisions will be made in an explicitly race-conscious manner. Care providers will be directed to admit black and "Latinx" heart-failure patients on a "preferential" basis to the specialty cardiology service, where the level of care is higher than in the general medical ward, as a way of "correcting" years of what the pilot project authors claim to be structural racism, in which black and Latino patients were "more likely than white patients to end up on our general medicine service."
The sleights of hand and deliberate
obfuscations typical of Critical Race Theory are evident throughout this
justification of what, in a sane age, would immediately be recognized as
promotion of racial hatred and medical malpractice.
