“White Coats for Black Lives”
Medical science and saving lives has nothing to do with social justice. Hopefully, the folks at Harvard Medical School laughed this off.
The Washington Examiner reports:
‘White Coats for Black Lives’ issues racial justice report card to Harvard Medical School
Harvard Medical School just received its first ever “racial justice report card,” receiving a score of B-. The unconventional assessment was done by a group called “White Coats for Black Lives.”
The group clarifies that the report card should be utilized as a resource for “justice-oriented medical students,” and aims to engender an “anti-racist environment” at Harvard, and presumably other prominent medical schools across the nation as well.
The organization evaluated racial justice at Harvard Medical School using 15 different metrics, largely correlating around issues regarding underrepresented minorities on campus.
The group states that certain Harvard Medical School students “with troubling racist histories are publicly celebrated” and that further focus on “public artworks and monuments” is needed. They also dinged the medical school because there isn’t any “publicly available information about grade disparities at Harvard.”
Other institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University, and Yale each received C’s on their racial justice evaluations.
