RACISM MEETS CRITERIA FOR THREAT TO PUBLIC HEALTH

Force CDC/NIH to admit that racism is the true public health target impacting outcomes for ALL Americans. Cure the infection and not just the fever.

Why is this important?

From gun violence to universal healthcare, no field of endeavor or conflict in this country is untouched by the legacy of racism manifest by our American destiny. Despite scholarly and established work to the contrary, CDC cries "No evidence-based best practices to address it" as an excuse not to do their job, so the people must demand it. I have seen the stress of loss of privilege, the minute daily drips of intangible "microaggressions" and the gaping wounds of bullets; I took an oath and DO NO HARM is not enough. We're also on Twitter and would ask folks to tweet Trevor Noah and other prominent folks who "have the mic"! @Right2healthNow

Reasons for signing

  • This is everyone's responsibility to change.
  • Racism has been so baked into our nation that it impacts every facet of our lives. We need to allocate resources to re-form, de-center, scientific and medical procedures based on eugenicist ideology and adjust the way we practice medicine and perceive pain, and prioritize the bodies that have been used and abused by our system.
  • This is a grave concern that must be addressed.
