“Acknowledge that you see what’s happening and share your solidarity in dismantling racism”
The politics of the left now come first in absolutely everything.

OSU med students required to read ‘antiracism’ docs, warned against asking Black colleagues ‘How are you doing?’
Ohio State University College of Medicine (OSUCOM) students are required to read a slew of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and antiracism literature, including an opinion piece that recommends a White colleague not ask a Black colleague how they are doing.
“This opinion piece … informs the reader of ‘things to be mindful of with not only Black friends but also Black Colleagues in the workplace.’ One recommendation is to stop asking, ‘How are you doing?’ Its reason is that the situation ‘for Black People (and all People of Color)’ is to ‘experience racism every day,’” the July 2023 report published by Do No Harm, a medical nonprofit, states.
The report’s author, Laura Morgan, is a former registered nurse and nurse residency coordinator at Baylor Scott & White Health in College Station, Texas. She was involuntarily terminated for refusing to take the annual implicit bias training.
The author of the opinion piece, “6 Questions to Stop Asking Your Black Friends Right Now,” recommends coworkers “use statements and just say you are thinking of us,” is Daisy Hunt Harris, a DEI consultant.
“Acknowledge that you see what’s happening and share your solidarity in dismantling racism,” Hunt Harris writes. “And then, say up front that you do not expect a text, a call, a response back. Take the burden off.”
A Black person who receives a “How’re you doing” text is akin to someone who recently lost a loved one receiving the same message, Harris also writes.
A second piece written by Harris and that OSUCOM students must read recommends that White people ask their Black colleagues if they need to make space before beginning a discussion.
“It is important that you ask Black people (not White people) if they would like further discussion space, as not everyone is comfortable, ready, or simply willing to discuss at work,” Harris writes.
