This is a wonderfully crafted forum post and I completely agree that this book is very insightful in regards to the complex racial issues that are evident in the medical community. I also would have felt very sad and demoralized if one of my professors thought I was a technician instead of a medical student. I know that has to bring down a person’s self-esteem and question whether or not they belong in medical school. I have noticed implicit racial biases in some of my stem classes, as professors will describe a disorder as primarily evident in black people. Also, professors will mostly call on white people to answer questions, especially in regards to racial-oriented questions. You did a fantastic job of analyzing Tweedy’s insight on the implicit racism of institutions and people, whether intentional or not. Keep up the great work!
