U.S. MED SCHOOLS THINK DIVERSITY MEANS MAKING SURE 1 OUT OF EVERY 1,500* STUDENTS IS BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN.
In 1978, there were 542 black male matriculants to U.S. medical schools. In 2014 there were 515. Yet, somehow, through a severe case of cognitive dissonance, the AAMC thinks they’ve made huge strides in correcting their lack of diversity. That makes sense if you think “huge strides” means “made things significantly worse.”
If you agree, email your elected representative and tell them you think being black shouldn’t stop someone from wearing a white coat.
