We’ve previously reported on the “day of discrimination” hosted by the Medical College of South Carolina. Now we know how much MUSC paid for the privilege of accusing its faculty, staff, and students of bias, racism, and white privilege.
We submitted a freedom of information request to MUSC, asking for copies of the contracts and invoices for the speakers at the “Inclusion to Innovation” summit. It turns out the medical school paid a whopping $45,000 for woke speakers, including Robin DiAngelo and Isabel Wilkerson.
Who are these people? Robin DiAngelo is the author of “White Fragility,” one of the seminal works in the woke canon. It accuses white people of racism and encourages radical re-education along racial lines. Such indoctrination is exactly what MUSC is now implementing.
Isabel Wilkerson is no better. She argues that America isn’t just racist – it actually suffers from a “caste system.” The “solution,” naturally, is to radically reorient society along race-based lines. Indoctrinating faculty and students is necessary to the success of this extremist project.
What does any of this have to do with medical education at MUSC? Nothing. If anything, it will worsen the quality of that education, and ultimately, the care that medical students provide when they enter the field. The last thing MUSC should be doing is drilling divisive and discriminatory ideas into people’s heads.
Taxpayers fund a significant part of the Medical College of South Carolina. They – and the state’s lawmakers – should be asking why they’re forking over so much money for woke indoctrination. If anyone can save MUSC, it’s the people and their representatives.
