Critical race theory has arrived at medical schools. What could go wrong?
The promo for my hour-long interview on Tucker Carlson Today was supposed to run several weeks ago, but was bumped and then bumped again and then bumped again by the Trump indictment circus news cycles. It finally dropped today.
I previously wrote about my hour-long interview on Tucker Carlson Today, the most intense interview I’ve ever done, “Sir, your presentation was far and away the best Tucker has aired to date”.
That post has a couple of excerpts from the transcript, including Tucker’s kind opening:
Tucker: Welcome to Tucker Carlson Today. One of the saddest developments in the past 20 years is watching the total destruction of American journalism. Journalism is protected explicitly by the First Amendment for a reason. It’s what keeps our system at least theoretically free, open and fair. And it’s pretty much dead. It’s now an instrument of one of the two political parties. But the good news is that real journalism has emerged in its place to fill that vacuum, and it’s being practiced by people who aren’t strictly speaking journalists.
And one of the best journalists of our time is about as far from a trained journalist as you can get. He’s a law professor at an Ivy League school. His name is Bill Jacobson. He runs Legal Insurrection, and he has been one of the people covering the woke destruction of education for the rest of us.
Bill Jacobson, we’re really glad to have you…. A frequent guest on our nighttime show. Thank you so much. So I’ve been wanting to ask you this since you first started coming on. Like how did you get into [this] what is your life trajectory? I have a feel you’re not doing now what you expected to be doing with
WAJ: No part of my life has been planned. No part has been a clear trajectory…

Finally, the promo dropped today:

It’s still unclear whether it will be promoted on the nightly show — My segment promo may have fallen into the Trump news cycle abyss.
The medical school issue, and our CriticalRace.org project, was just a small piece of the longer interview, which covered:
- My days at Harvard Law School witnessing the birth of Critical Legal Theory and the foundations of Critical Race Theory
- my career as a plaintiff’s contingency fee lawyer
- the illness that forced me out of law practice and into Cornell Law School
- the founding of Legal Insurrection, how my early writings about Obama have been vindicated
- the work Legal Insurrection has done on Elizabeth Warren and Gibson’s Bakery
- the decade-long harassment I endured at Cornell as a result of speaking out
- the attempt to “cancel” me in June 2020 and the betrayal by work friends,
- Our CriticalRace.org and EqualProtect.org projects
- and more
The interview now streaming on Fox Nation. A Fox Nation subscription is needed to view the show, but they offer a free trial subscription so you can watch my segment at no cost.

It is as bad as you can imagine and worse. I am a soon to be retired faculty at a med school. Transgender students, transgender faculty, and the abandonment of evidence based medicine. Parents furious if you don’t send their kid to the gender clinic.
God that sounds so awful, don’t know if we will survive it. As a nurse I saw this coming too, so many wacko residents it blew my mind
I never argued with nurses… .fellow docs? Yes. Especially in internship ….. a good nurse was a life saver… for both the patient and me. The first week of internship, one of the interns ordered 50 mg of a beta blocker IV. The nurse kindly asked the intern if she wanted all fifty 1 mg vials used? Ah..ah…no… P.O. would be fine. How will we know if the care in the future is predicated on merit, political affiliation, or if the patient is up to speed on the most recent catch phrases? This is all a sign of a collapsing society as Camille Paglia wrote about.
Good Dr! I have a few resident stories myself.
In the past the residents were very open to nurses “suggestions “, that also has changed , not so much anymore amd the female residents are usually the worse and far outnumber male
Stay safe, stay free…stay well!
We did not know how good we had it, nor that we would be the last ones.
The acceptance of trans-gender nonsense is far worse than med schools adopting CRT. It not only rejects evidence-based medicine, it calls into question human sexual dimorphism itself and denies or ignores the role of the endocrine system in sex expression.
Why would a medical school adopt this equivalent of Phlogiston theory or Lysenkoism?
Maybe they’re thinking more about their graduates making $ than treating patients with knowledge based skill.
We’re dealing with a colossal mass delusion fostered by stratospherically wealthy interests who appear to be advancing some sort of trans-human movement that includes the de-sexing of human beings.
I’m beginning to wonder exactly who was behind the attempt to ruin Alex Jones other than a group of offended parents.
Be sure to ask your doctor if he/she/it took 9 months or 12 months to complete the first year. There has been a sub-group of students on the 12 month plan for at least the last 40 years. I have always wondered if they were also given an additional 33% more time to finish that open heart surgery.
Professor Jacobson is a real American hero who is fearless intellectually honest and utterly contemptuous of the woke worldview
We had several students (mostly..ah…minorities) that never made it through med school and were let go after up to 7 years…. they screamed racism.
Talked to an OB-GYN doc with rotation of residents through his practice. They were full of themselves as if they had not only gotten through residency but were experts in all things medical and social. Now add all things political and woke… oh boy.
I am so glad that my time as an assistant prof was back 35 years ago when none of this present garbage was even on the horizon. Teaching was both fun and rewarding. Now… I can’t imagine the potential frustration. If 2+2=4 is “racist” imagine sorting out lab values… was the EKG interpreted with the appropriate pronoun?
Gee, the Professor and Musk in the same week!
It will get worse because neither side can accept the truth.
So does this mean that only black doctors can treat black folks and only white doctors can treat white folks? Asking for a friend.
Did you realize that merely having black doctors in a county improves the lifespans of black people, even if they never meet each other?
It’s settled science, hater:
Call it “black doctor magic.”
Around 1985, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study proving the D.C. Gun ban was effective. One of the findings was that gun crime went down after passage of the ban but before implementation date. The article did not correct for population changes. As the gun deaths rose, the authors stated that even though more died more were being saved. Before Covid , if one replaced gun with virus nobody would believe that..but here we have Covid to prove the mindset again. During the Black Death, physicians wore (weird) masks to ward off the disease…. Nothing has changed.
“Settled Science”…….really? One study, was this peer reviewed? The results are indeed “astonishing”. Prob a reason for that.
Settled science? You mean like the covid vaccine is safe and effective?
Also, are you referring to actual science or THE SCIENCE (trade mark)? As in “covid vaccines are safe and effective” and “Y chromosome men have periods and babies.”
Maybe you should do a wee bit of research: The study you linked to at statnews.com, well that site was founded November 4, 2015, by John W. Henry, the owner of The Boston Globe. It is produced by Boston Globe Media and is headquartered in the Globe’s own building in Boston. Yeah – I trust the Boston Globe to be an expert on the study you mentioned like I trust Bill Gates to be a vaccine expert and Klaus Schwab to run the world.
There is so much arrogant ignorance out there . . .
It’s called association not causation. They are there because of better economic situations and thus better healthcare outcomes.
Correlation is not causation. Having black doctors does not improve the life expectancy of black people. Living in a country where blacks _can_ become doctors implies a country with less discrimination against blacks, and discrimination certainly lowered Emmett Till’s life expectancy. It lowered both black and white life expectancy when, instead of an ambulance taking an injured person to the nearest hospital, it took you to the nearest hospital of the matching color.
Having black doctors also implies that either blacks are closer to economic parity with the majority than they ever have been in the USA, or the country is so wealthy that even poor people can go to medical school. Wealth generally improves life expectancy.
What are the odds of increased knowledge about sickle cell anemia and other diseases that blacks suffer from more than whites ?
Seems a reasonable hypothesis. Perhaps obesity and/or diabetes effects, too?
What makes it an unreasonable hypothesis is that the black doctor isn’t involved with the patients benefited, and one black doctor in a county is enough for the entire black population. The black doctor is like fentanyl, or ricin, only good for you.
As Candace Owens said recently; “To survive the woke culture, you have to become a liar.”
My daughter finished her residency last year and took a position as a hospitalist in north Massachusetts. She tells my wife stories of institutional dysfunction and of patient non-compliance. I know she will evolve into a physician that any patient would be thankful to have…if the system doesn’t succeed in destroying her and many like her.
My advice to her is to use what she learned in anatomy class. Your ears outnumber your mouth for several reasons. Don’t give them a chance to say you didn’t listen to them. But always consider the source.
Thank you Mr. Jacobson for all you do.
THIS alone makes my annual subscription to FOXNATION well worth it!
I’ll be watching this Bill!
Ever read the text of the Obamacare bill? Most racist thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
The Feds took control of medical schools with that law. It enables them to discriminate on race in admissions, and allows them to dictate where new graduates can work – based on race of the graduate and the racial composition of the town they get assigned to work in.
It gives the Secretary of HHS sole discretion, and unlimited power, over virtually everything in any way related to health care in this country. Not just insurance coverage, but direct control over hospitals, doctors, and medical schools.
Like so many other bills where Congress Un-Constitutionally granted legislative authority to an Executive Bureaucracy, the Obamacare law gives the Sec. HHS personal authority to make up any rule as he/she sees fit. The most common words in the entire bill are, “The Secretary Shall Determine”. That phrase appears several hundred times in just that one bill.
How many people in America understand that the Sec. HHS is now the most powerful person in the country?
CRT didn’t arrive in medical school on its own. The Federal Govt. dictated the change in curriculum.
Correct, and our failure rate on exams has dramatically increased
Heather MacDonald’s new book on the decline of merit at the expense of race is must reading on this issue
“Critical Race Theory [is] an outgrowth of the European Marxist school of critical theory…”
Critical Theory was created by the Frankfurt School, whose members were almost all Jews. It’s dishonest to elide this by describing it blandly as a “European” entity.
The reason this matters is that their “Marxism” was almost purely a rationalization of resentment and hatred for the majority culture. And that in turn matters because the same kind of resentment and hatred drives Critical Race Theory. If you try to analyze this stuff primarily as ideology, you miss the point.
