Esteemed Medical Journal Prescribes the Cure for America's Racism: Segregation

An iconic medical journal has diagnosed America with a critical case of Caucasian corruption. But don’t worry — it’s also penned our prescription.


In an April 27th article, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) claims healthcare is riddled with racism:

As academic medicine begins to recognize and examine racism as the root cause of racially disparate health outcomes, we need curricula for training physicians to dismantle the systems that perpetuate these inequities.

Medical instruction is equally KKK-ish:

Since traditional approaches to medical education are themselves founded in inequitable systems, new approaches are essential.

The Journal offers a racism-eradicating key:

Racial affinity group caucuses (RAGCs)…are facilitated sessions involving participants grouped according to self-identified racial or ethnic identity to support integration of antiracism curricula into clinical practice.

Segregating students will serve as “part of a broader antiracism and antioppression curriculum.” Whiteness has wrecked the medical apparatus:

Founded on legacies of colonialism and racism, medical education has historically centered White learners and continues to perpetuate structural racism. Pedagogical approaches often center White learners and ignore the differential impact of content on BIPOC learners (Black, Indigenous, or people of color) with personal experiences of racism that are nuanced and have been informed by interactions and observations over their lifetimes.

Trauma calls for triage:

Immersion in the existing medical education system can therefore be retraumatizing, resulting in imposter syndrome, heightened anxiety, and a reduced sense of belonging. Especially as we seek to recruit more medical students who are BIPOC, we need to recognize this harm and encourage pedagogical approaches that support the needs of BIPOC learners.


The authors — a quartet of University of California researchers — recommend a whites-only group. Folks with meager melanin will face their foulness:

RAGCs for White learners differ from other White-dominated spaces in allowing participants to be held accountable without burdening or retraumatizing BIPOC colleagues who are affected by racism.

Nonwhites will frolic in the freedom to be themselves:

In a space without White people, BIPOC participants can bring their whole selves, heal from racial trauma together, and identify strategies for addressing structural racism.

Such ideas have surged in popularity; People of the Pale are purportedly pernicious:

Per the NEJM, whites are fatally fragile. Furthermore, they’re bent on bamboozling BIPOCs:

[Racial affinity group caucuses] also allow Black learners to explore their experience of racism and contextualize their understanding of antiracism without the burden of educating or taking care of non-Black colleagues, and without facing the otherwise-common denial, gaslighting (undermining another person by causing them to doubt their own perceptions and experience), and White fragility.


If nonwhites are schooled sans Aryan imperialism, they’ll more readily resist racism’s rigors:

BIPOC learners are better equipped to interrogate the impact of racism, including how their own communities perpetuate colorism, colonialism, xenophobia, and anti-Black racism.

Meanwhile, a coalition called Do Not Harm is opposing the New England Journal of Medicine. From the alliance’s “About Us” page:

We are a diverse group of physicians, healthcare professionals, medical students, patients, and policymakers united by a moral mission: Protect healthcare from a radical, divisive, and discriminatory ideology. We believe in making healthcare better for all – not undermining it in pursuit of a political agenda.

To that end, Do Not Harm has published a petition:

We join with diverse medical professionals in calling for real solutions to the root causes of persistent health disparities. Divisive and racist language will only hold back progress. The Journal should apologize for running such an illiberal and extremist article, and ask itself why it was published in the first place. Anything less sends a deeply concerning message about the priorities – and indeed, the principles – of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Is America’s medical arena rife with anti-black racism? Are white students eager to gaslight minorities? If so, is the antidote segregation?

Not long ago, it was thought that only unity could pummel prejudice. These days, institutions appear averse to the idea. We’re being sent to our respective racial corners, as if a “divide and conquer” strategy is at play.


What will be the result? Whatever it is, America seems bound to find out. If The New England Journal of Medicine gets its way, we’ll soon enough learn whether the medicine was worse than the malady.
