Calling President Reagan ‘disturbingly racist,’ student wants his name stripped from med center
A UCLA student is calling for President Ronald Reagan’s name to be removed from the UCLA Medical Center, calling him “disturbingly racist” and arguing he did not address AIDS fast enough.
Founded in 1955, UCLA Medical Center became Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in 2008, according to its website.
“[A]s long as the hospital is associated with a figurehead whose actions were adversarial to health equity for people of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community, these efforts to curb bias in health care ring hollow,” student Sophia Kloster argued in the Daily Bruin.
She cited then-Calif. Gov. Reagan’s 1971 phone call with President Richard Nixon, when he called shoeless African delegates at the United Nations “monkeys.” She also chastised Reagan for not confronting AIDS from the White House until 1985.
“It is hypocritical for the center to preach equity for people of all sexual orientations, races and ethnicities while simultaneously carrying the name of a president whose actions undermined those values and led to the deaths of thousands,” Kloster wrote.
