    Boston Hospital starts race based preference treatment with reparations framework

    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/202.../race-a07.html
    From the article.
    The currently unnamed program is discussed at length in a March 17 article (“An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine”) authored by Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse and published in the Boston Review.

    According to the article, the new “pilot initiative” uses a “reparations framework” that focuses on “Black and Latinx patients and community members,” who, according to the authors, have been “most impacted by unjust heart failure management and under whose direction appropriate restitution can begin to take shape. They insist, moreover, that the Boston initiative be a “replicable pilot program” to be launched in hospitals across the country.
    Apparently, the biggest hurdle is the racist jim crow era Civil Rights act of 1964
    Article 4 specifically, “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity,” including “education, health care, housing, social services.”
    Also, apparently, it's *medically unethical* too, but that's not the law, so there might be workarounds to this BOLD new medical initiative.

    What are your thoughts on this program, what changes to the law should be made so that it cane be done legally?

    I don't know anything about this program, but I will say that medical treatment across the US has shown to have lots of racial bias and disparate treatment of minorities so there is at the very least a problem with the equality of treatment, even if this isn't the solution.

    Boston should concentrate on changing the logo of the Celtics.

    Us Irish are offended by that goofy caricature.

    Ten pounds of Idahos and a sixer of Harp each should do it.

    You know what's funny, i never thought anything of it before, but now that the washington Redskins changed their name, it's kinda mind blowing that that was their name! It is SO derogatory, yet it was the name of a football team, lmao!

    I cant believe we had a team named Redskins and we were all just cool with it! [emoji23][emoji23]

    Lol, that is very much not true. It's an overt racial slur and cherry picked surveys indicating a high approval rating of the name are just that.

    Plenty of native Americans had a problem with it.

    That's how I initially felt when this whole.thing became a story. But now I'm realizing, damn, that was EXTREME. The redskins. That's such a flat out slur, it's crazy a whole franchise had that as its mascot.

    I was always indifferent towards that story, but now I'm glad they changed their name. Should have done that decades ago.

    Gender based issues as well. It turns out when medical researchers ask for volunteers they tend to get white males more than any other group and drawing conclusions from one gender/race can cause major issues.
