On Thursday, the Washington Examiner reported that the Boston-based Brigham and Women’s Hospital is set to offer “preferential care based on race” and “race-explicit interventions” in an attempt to engage in an “antiracist agenda for medicine” based on critical race theory.
“Together with a coalition of fellow practitioners and hospital leaders, we have developed what we hope will be a replicable pilot program for direct redress of many racial health care inequities,” Harvard Medical School instructors Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse wrote in a Boston Review article titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine.”

According to the Washington Examiner:
The authors explain that “racial inequity” in hospitals is negatively affecting patients and propose solutions such as “cash transfers and discounted or free care” for minorities only.
“Offering preferential care based on race or ethnicity may elicit legal challenges from our system of colorblind law … We encourage other institutions to proceed confidently on behalf of equity and racial justice, with backing provided by recent White House executive orders,” the authors explain in a reference to recent executive orders signed by President Joe Biden.
Critical race theory, the belief that the United States is a fundamentally racist country, founding documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are inherently racist, and that a person can be inherently racist based simply on skin color, has permeated public schools and corporations over the past several years resulting in a now rescinded executive order from former President Donald Trump.
Reaction to the idea was pretty much what you might think.
So if there is a white woman and a black woman in the Emergency Room they’ll give preference to the black woman?
Seems sorta … racist.
And even illegal.
Not like we’re experts or anything but still.
FWIW, I don’t really see a scenario where this is *actually* put into practice. U.S. does not have a health care rationing or scarcity issue, thankfully, but the hyper-politicization of every part of life, even something as sacred as health care, should give us cause for pause.

In a statement to the Examiner, the hospital said the article is an “opinion piece written by two physicians, not a formal position of the hospital.”
“The Brigham is committed to examining and eliminating the many impacts that racism has on the health and wellbeing of our patients,” the statement added. “As part of our system’s United Against Racism campaign, we support efforts focused on improving both the access and the experience of our patients, focusing on community health and advocacy, and increasing the diversity of leadership.”
Right… Fight racism by being racist… Makes a lot of sense to us… Not.
