How Medicine got Corrupted

Psychiatrist Sally Satel writes in Quillette:
Twenty-one years ago, I wrote a book called PC, M.D. How Political Correctness is Corrupting Medicine. One chapter explored “multicultural counseling,” a form of therapy that encouraged white clinicians to ask themselves, “what responsibility do you hold for the racist oppressive and discriminating manner by which you personally and professionally deal with minorities?” ...

Today, the Indoctrinologists are officially in.

She goes on to describe the situation today. It is so much worse, that it is a wonder what she could have been complaining about 20 years ago.

She concedes:

I strongly agree that much of black Americans’ disadvantage in health and access to care is the cumulative product of legal, political, and social institutions that have historically discriminated, and sometimes continue to discriminate, against them.

People say this, but with no data to back it up. I doubt it. Do Blacks get better treatment in African countries? No. Blacks come to the USA, and they do not leave.
