Nikole Hannah-Jones to Discuss Diversity, Inclusion and Equity at a Veterinary Medicine Conference

Nikole Hannah-Jones to Discuss Diversity, Inclusion and Equity at a Veterinary Medicine Conference

“The AAVMC’s annual conference is considered one of the leading professional development events in international academic veterinary medicine.”

Giving talks about DIE, social justice, and Critical Race Theory has become a huge industry within higher education and 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah Jones is a leading figure in the business.

This week, Hannah-Jones will even speak at the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges’ conference.

This defies belief.

Ashe Schow writes at the Daily Wire:

Nikole Hannah-Jones To Speak At Veterinary Conference That ‘Focuses On Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion’

Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of historically inaccurate “1619 Project” at The New York Times, will keynote the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges’ (AAVMC) 2022 conference.

Yes, you read that correctly, this is a conference for veterinary medical colleges – as in animal medicine.

But, as with most colleges and universities these days, the conference has less to do with science and more to do with being woke. A description for the conference spells it out (emphasis added):

The AAVMC’s annual conference is considered one of the leading professional development events in international academic veterinary medicine. Hundreds of educators and other leaders from the veterinary medical profession gather every year for a three day-symposium that features respected thought-leaders from around the world, explores issues and opportunities, shares best practices, and focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion. The conference also features the AAVMC’s annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill…

The schedule for the conference shows the focus is on diversity, with one of the first sessions titled “Diversity Community Meeting, several sessions about admissions and outreach, and a session Thursday morning titled “Use of a Hackathon to Design a Longitudinal Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Thread in a Laboratory Animal Medicine Residency Program.”

Schow goes on the describe other events on the agenda having to do with diversity, LGBT issues and even responding to the death of George Floyd.

What does any of this have to do with veterinary medicine?

This would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

    Blue Lives Matter More

      Some, Select [Black] Lives Matter. Under Diversity, Inequity, and Exclusion, People of Black, Blue, and even Orange lives matter selectively, opportunistically, when politically congruent (“=”). Roe, Roe, Roe your baby… yourself, down the river Styx.

Vetinary clinic? What is she, getting her distemper shots?

Enough of this grifter.

She will propose that every herd of milk cows contain a minimum quota of black Angus cows. They don’t give much milk, but hey, it’s equity!!

Well I’m sending my black lab to the conference because Black Labs Matter.

We all have to be concerned about incompetent doctors; it is reasonable to be even more concerned when it is an Affirmative doctor.

Now we have to worry about incompetent Affirmative veterinarians.

When any unearned degree is handed out, degrees mean little, all degees are devalued.

It’s all about a $50k paycheck. Nobody will know until about 2 years later when they file the 990 and all will be forgotten.

My white lab would not be welcome but perhaps my chocolate lab would be allowed to sit in the back with Elizabeth Warren’s red dog.

Good heavens! Someone needs to tell her that Animal Farm was fiction and not a policy manual!

Sewerage eventually finds its own level.
(Yes, I know it’s sewage. For all intensive purposes, it’s an homage to Rhode Island.)

why does this black racist culturally appropriate a white hair color and Jewish first name?

It’s about time. My small black dog has been discriminated against for too long. People have been taught to be afraid of a black dog. I want a little CRT introduced into the training of the white supremacist dogs and maybe even some reparations.

Diversity (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry), Inequity, and Exclusion is the established Pro-Choice (“ethical”) dogma of the nominally “secular” Progressive Corporation. #HateLovesAbortion

Gotta get paid!

The Grift is strong in this one.

We desperately need minimum IQ standards for members of Congress, it is alarming how rapidly Congress’s average IQ is falling.

So what’s her angle? We have to let the pets of white owners die because slavery? I mean, really, what on earth is the racist “anti-racist” take here? Privilege pets of black owners and discriminate against pets of white owners because “equity”? This insanity has to stop.

What relevance does this purveyor of a false narrative have to do with veterinary medicine?

Perhaps the 1619 theory does belong to the dogs.

What kind of idiot would invite this dishonest harlot to a veterinary medical conference?

Now that I think on it, I have never seen a black veterinarian at any animal hospital or veterinary clinic I have been to. And that is over 50 years of having and caring for both dogs and cats.

Obviously racism, amirite?

    Black students who could successfully apply to vet school generally aren’t interested in vet medicine. Nearly all of them go to medical school instead.
    I suspect there are many reasons for that, but one compelling factor is that the average MD makes at least 4x the income of the average DVM, while enjoying higher social status.

    The Vet Med department at Tuskegee University has had an active DVM program for a long time. They are associated with the Vet Med program at Auburn University a few miles up I-85. As for the number of graduates I have no idea but they’re there.
