In case you’re not black or Latin in NYC, perhaps you ought to move, as when it comes to healthcare the city’s Jim Dove racism will put you at the back of the medical bus.
Courtesy of New York City, and not surprisingly Harvard, two racist quacks have decided that white people, which is a very wide net that also ignores the fact the Latins are European and also thus white, do not deserve the quality or alacrity of medical care that PC approved minorities do. So that’s it, if you’re white you can just die on the sidewalk. New York City doesn’t give a damn.
By the way, as a Latin I can tell you, Latins refer to themselves and other Latins by their country of heritage or as Latin American (Latins). So when you hear “latinx” or “Hispanic”, you’re listening to a race hustler or a guilty white liberal.

FNC: “Two physicians, including the New York City health department’s chief medical officer, have proposed racial preferences for black and ‘latinx’ patients, in order to address structural inequities. The proposal came as part of a Boston Review op-ed earlier this month in which Drs. Michelle Morse and Bram Wispelwey – both of whom have worked at a teaching hospital for Harvard University – called for an anti-racist approach to medicine. While they didn’t explicitly call for ‘discrimination,’ they criticized colorblind policies and sought racial preferences in patient admissions.”
Bull O’Connor and early George Wallace in scrubs speak: “After more than five decades of colorblind law … the stubborn persistence of racial inequities – both in health care and across society at large – gives the lie to the effectiveness of colorblind policies,” the racist doctors wrote.
“[W]e have taken redress in our particular initiative to mean providing precisely what was denied for at least a decade: a preferential admission option for black and latinx heart failure patients to our specialty cardiology service. The Healing ARC [acknowledgment, redress and closure] will include a flag in our electronic medical record and admissions system suggesting that providers admit black and latinx heart failure patients to cardiology, rather than rely on provider discretion or patient self-advocacy to determine whether they should go to cardiology or general medicine.” Racial and ethnic quotas in healthcare. It was bound to come to this.
“But given the ample current evidence that our health, judicial and other systems already unfairly preference people who are white, we believe that our approach is corrective and therefore mandated,” the vicious Mengele-like duo added.
Discovery Institute’s Chris Rufo responded. “The ‘equity’ ideology has permeated all of our elite institutions. Now medical professionals are setting the conceptual framework to deny medical treatment to whites in order to achieve ‘non-disparate’ outcomes. This is a moral crime, a violation of the 14th Amendment, and a direct contravention of their oath to ‘do no harm.'”
