“How can a podcast be so shortsided as to have two men (white men?) declaring that there is no racism in the medical profession. First, that’s a sweeping idea - that there exists zero racism - and second, they are not the affected parties.
By centering themselves at the table, by not inviting a more knowledgeable guest, they looked foolish and uninformed as they talked outside their specialty. Maybe they didn’t know anyone within the 5% of Black doctors to give first hand accounts of the experiences they’ve faced, like listening to AMA podcasts. The entire situation reeks of irony, and I hope the AMA opens up it’s board membership and replaces uninformed people with doctors on the frontlines of change.
I have Instagram content more educational than that episode. There’s a group of Black surgeons who do TikTok and demonstrate that they can be who they are, look who they look like, and be a licensed physician. They discuss the racism they face at their workplace, the statements by staff and patients. But instead we needed opinions from people who are not the victims of racism on whether racism has been solved.”
