In a win for the woke warriors who care more about feelings than they do science or medical wellbeing, medical schools are being forced to mandate Critical Race Theory (CRT) training.

According to the Critical Race Training in Education database and reported by the Daily Caller:

Approximately 58 of the top 100 medical schools ranked by the U.S. News & World report include CRT in their courses and student training, according to the Critical Race Training in Education database. Of the top schools, 46 provide students and staff with resources by Robin DiAngelo, the author of “Nice Racism,” a book about how progressive white people perpetuate racial harm, and Ibram X. Kendi, the author of several books on antiracism including “Stamped.”

The Critical Race Training in Education database states, “As with our higher education database, some have embraced CRT explicitly, while others have a continuum of programming, such as ‘antiracism,’ ‘equity,’ and ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ that does not easily fit into a Yes/No construct…We provide information from which you can make the most informed decision possible.”

The Daily Caller notes that CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.

The antiracism push in medical education is increasing; to reach diversity, equity and inclusion goals, 35.6% of medical schools are offering incentives to departments who meet the diversity goals set by the institution. In July, the Association of American Medical Colleges released new guidelines on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for medical schools to teach students to consider their “privilege” and patients’ “intersectionality” when providing treatment.

The Daily Caller provides a breakdown on some of the nation’s top Medical Schools:

Harvard Medical School, named the top medical school in the country by the U.S. News & World report, is developing new classes for their masters and Ph.D. programs which will help students “acknowledge the ways in which racism is embedded in science and scientific culture and work to redress these longstanding issues,” according to Harvard Medical School’s website. The school’s Global Surgery and Social Change program requires its students to “participate in and lead informed discussions about antiracism through a dedicated antiracism curriculum” in order to educate students on the “history of racism and colonialism in health.”

The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, ranked third in the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, has racial affinity caucusing groups for students to participate in “antiracist work and process the impact of racism on ourselves and our community,” the school’s website reads. In September 2022, the school announced its “Differences Matter Initiative” to help the school “accelerate the achievement of equity and inclusion across the medical profession.”

Duke University School of Medicine, ranked sixth by the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, implemented an antiracism committee to “incorporate teaching racism and racial inequities” through “teaching, research and clinical missions,” the school website showed. The school offers resources including “an antiracist reading list from Ibram X. Kendi” to help further its goal of making the school “an educational and research leader and agent of change towards an antiracist culture.”

The department of surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, ranked 68th for medical schools in the nation, provides “ongoing faculty development sessions in topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” the school website stated. Students in the department of surgery will be taught to “eliminate the impact of implicit and explicit bias” within their practice.

An estimated 1.1 million illegal immigrants are married to United States citizens, and President Joe Biden just gave them a path to amnesty. The administration announced Tuesday that the sweeping executive action will provide legal protections in an effort to “keep families together” known as the “parole in place” program.

Eligible individuals will be protected from deportation and be provided with work permits if they have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade. They have three years to apply for permanent citizenship.

“President Biden believes that securing the border is essential,” the White House said in a statement. “He also believes in expanding lawful pathways and keeping families together, and that immigrants who have been in the United States for decades, paying taxes and contributing to their communities, are part of the social fabric of our country.”

National Review reports an estimated 500,000 people could benefit, and that Biden is expected to celebrate the executive action at a White House event celebrating the 12-year anniversary of former president Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which shields illegal-immigrant children from deportation. The new order will also make DACA recipients eligible for Obamacare.
The Biden administration is also crafting a plan to streamline the process for undocumented students and other illegal immigrants to receive temporary work visas, according to National Review which also notes that “although DACA has survived legal challenges up to this point, it’s unclear if Biden’s new executive action will have a similar fate, particularly given the composition of the Supreme Court.”
