Boston hospital set to offer 'preferential care based on race'

A Boston hospital says it will offer “preferential care based on race” and “race-explicit interventions” in an attempt to engage in an “antiracist agenda for medicine” based on critical race theory.

A Boston Review article titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine” lays out a plan from Brigham and Women’s Hospital that implements a “reparations framework” for distributing medical resources in order to “comprehensively confront structural racism."

“Together with a coalition of fellow practitioners and hospital leaders, we have developed what we hope will be a replicable pilot program for direct redress of many racial health care inequities,” Harvard Medical School instructors Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse wrote in the article.

The authors explain that “racial inequity” in hospitals is negatively affecting patients and propose solutions such as “cash transfers and discounted or free care” for minorities only.

“Offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity may elicit legal challenges from our system of colorblind law … We encourage other institutions to proceed confidently on behalf of equity and racial justice, with backing provided by recent White House executive orders,” the authors explain in a reference to recent executive orders signed by President Joe Biden.

Critical race theory, the belief that the United States is a fundamentally racist country, founding documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are inherently racist, and that a person can be inherently racist based simply on skin color, has permeated public schools and corporations over the past several years resulting in a now rescinded executive order from former President Donald Trump.

This too shall pass.
Lawsuits aside, this could have interesting consequences for that hospital. As the word gets around, I suspect most white folks are going to go to a different hospital for their care if at all possible. Then what? Accuse them of racism, just because they want to make sure they aren't made to accept the leftovers of medical care? Force them to use whatever hospital is closest? That's what they did with the public schools.

Just when I think things can't get crazier, someone ups the ante.

Edited to add: Then I read down the page and see Joe is considering lifting sanctions on Iran. I would go back to bed and burrow under the covers, but I can't wait to see what the third stupid idea of the day will be. /sarc

Everybody keeps saying "Lawsuits".

They didn't work for Trump - so why should we think they will work for any white conservative?

I hate to say it but the country that it would have worked in - is dead.
It isn't so much it getting into "court" as the bad PR and the pressure that creates for "settlements". We're talking literal "ambulance chaser" territory here.

I'm beginning to think that I want to move to another country. The US has become a very weak, ineffective, anti-Christian, racist (against whites), laughingstock country. At one time, the US was a country most were VERY PROUD to be a citizen of! Now? Not so much or not at all. I don't think I want to be part of this changed country anymore.

But...where to go...?

What a bunch of B.S.!! Race NEVER played a part in any treatment I ever recall, unless it was a specific condition tied to a specific group of people.....Like Sickle Cell, which BTW is not limited only to people of African origin, but rather any Dark Skinned Mediterranean PERSON!!

Things are just getting dumber and dumber and dumber. We've gone waaaaaay beyond stupid. We're entering the realm of PLAID!!

There is no where else to go. If we lose here, the entire world will fall with us.

There was that Caribbean island that's for sale mentioned a week or two ago. Perhaps we could create the Nation of TB2K?

Although perhaps an island isn't the greatest of ideas, what with Global Warming and oceans rising. Maybe a mountain redoubt? Sort of like Switzerland? Hmmmmm.

Ideas, suggestions, anyone?

I'm afraid you are right. But there's got to be someplace, somewhere that is better than here.

If not, then I guess we'd all best get busy - and get busy FAST and HARD! - to take our country back...if it's not too late. Either that, or pray for God to "Come Quickly, Lord!!"

I have a feeling that it is the last option. I know I'm Heaven-bound. Satan has gotten his hooks too deeply into this country and this world. It's about time to get off and head for Heaven.

This scenario has serious financial implications as well. If the white folks, who probably are statistically more likely to have insurance, stop using this hospital who will be left to pay the bills? There is no such thing as "free care". Someone has to pick up the tab. If most patients are medicare/medicaid, these are notoriously low reimbursement levels and the hospitals will not be able to survive without other funding sources.

Well - it's not like a patient can object over the race of their doc or nurse - or insist on "whites only" caregivers. But a move like this just might open up possibilities for "whites only" care, right? Ending a lot of confusion because either the doc's accent is so thick people can't understand them or English is their second language.

When I worked at a large private medical school in the radiology residency program B&Y was a choice place to go for advanced residency training.

God help us.

Wow, the progressives now engage in open segregation...fast track the destruction of the former usa
This^^^ Blacks better wake up because this is exactly what is happening and what type of doctors, nurses, and staff, do they think they're going to get at their antiracist minorities only hospital? I'm guessing not exactly top tier medical help.

Saddest of all, is it's reasonable to assume such political programs will result in substandard medical provisions, so the low income women of colour continue to lose and no one wins.
This is exactly what will happen one only has to look at the medical care facilities on the larger reservations, the smaller reservations do not have them, to see how poor the medical care quality is there.

That’s what I thought of too, sickle cell disease.

I worked as an RN for >20 years and can’t think of ANY instance when my care was dependent on a patient’s race.

For a short time, I was DON at a large nursing home, and most of the CNAs were black. I can assure you that some of them absolutely treated WHITE patients differently than black patients, and not in a good way. I showed them the door.

BS indeed!

Doesn't matter. The vast majority of their patients are black on black gunshot wounds, paid for by government funding...

The new key word is ”equity” rather than “equality.” Civil rights folks used to demand equality. But that is nowhere near what they seek today.

“Equity” or “inequity” implies the need for race-based preferential treatment.. the beginnings of reparations to pay back what was stolen... the REAL intent of all this critical race theory obsession.

Equality was the first step... Equity is the current next step... Reparations will be next upcoming.

Not a single one of these new "woke" realize that they are completely overturning what was done in the real civil rights movement ... and are now putting in a brand new type of racism that will end up hurting and not helping anyone.

Equity is not a right and in fact is a communist lie!

Equality under the law and judgement by your character are moral truths and these woke demon infested fools are 180 degrees out of phase.
