What’s happening today also bears the hallmark of a newer evil: Critical Race Theory (CRT). The language that…


‘DEI’ Is an Enemy of Free Speech, Not a Friend

  • November 21, 2023

How do you know when the good guys are winning? When the bad guys start denying what they’re really doing.

The Danger of Elevating Diversity over Quality in Medicine

  • October 10, 2023

We now have even more evidence that a lowering of standards in service of diversity is doing real harm to the medical profession. Diversity is good, but it should never come at the expense of quality. That’s especially true in fields like my own medical profession. For years, the medical establishment…

Prescription for Failure

  • May 19, 2023

The research establishment studying racial disparities in health care has a big problem. It has made a concerted effort to ignore any literature that contradicts the narrative that racial animus underlies the health-care disparities between white and black patients. As in any field, the more evidence you can cite in favor of your theory, the more acceptance your theory will gain. In medical literature, acceptance of ideas is achieved when other researchers cite the supporting studies for those concepts. In fact, “impact” in the medical literature is judged by frequency of citations. A most favored hypothesis these days holds that black patients need access to black physicians to receive optimal medical care. This concept is a major motivating force behind the search for greater numbers of blacks to enter the health-care workforce. Unfortunately, the research cited to support it is often disingenuous or, at worst, dishonest.

  • April 27, 2023

Increasing diversity of the physician workforce is a dominant activity in today’s healthcare system and the goal of the millions of dollars spent by hospitals and medical schools on their diversity bureaucracies. One of the most cited studies to support the rather unlikely notion that merely diversifying a hospital staff…
