A tipster recently sent us an email from the American Board of Pediatrics. Like so many other medical associations, the board – which oversees the physicians who care for our kids – is fully bought into the woke agenda.
The email involves “maintenance of certification” credit, which is required for pediatricians who want to maintain their license. In the email, the board urges pediatricians to claim credit for DEI-related education, in reference to the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” ideology that’s central to woke identity politics.
The board makes this stunning claim:
“The ABP understands that racism and other forms of discrimination contribute to health inequities among children of color and other under-represented groups.”American Board of Pediatrics
Translation: Pediatricians need to be re-educated to stop them from being racist. Yet the board offers no proof that pediatricians are racist, biased, or anything else.
More to the point, the board is pushing ideas grounded in “anti-racism,” which demands discrimination on the basis of race. In the context of medicine, that means offering different levels of access and standards of care to people of different skin colors.
That’s right: The American Board of Pediatrics is implicitly endorsing racial discrimination while claiming to oppose it. This is a direct threat to the health and well-being of American children – and parents and physicians alike should demand better.
