Hi! I totally agree with you that there is a need for more perspectives from people of color in all genres but especially in the medical narrative sphere. I like that you acknowledge that there are different forms of racism and that everyone’s experience with racism is different. I think that Tweedy takes a unique approach when discussing race and discrimination in his book. He focuses on the social determinants of health that unequally affect people of color. His approach to race in the medical world both as a patient and practitioner reveals that there is much to be improved upon in our health care systems.
