Those born with the unshrivable sin of “Whiteness” must grovel by acknowledging this sin in order to work their chosen profession in an act of useless recentness. Specifically, Australian nurses are now required to announce their “White Privilege” to Aboriginal patients.
“Australian nurses and midwives are being forced to announce their ‘white privilege’ before treating Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander patients – a move which has been slammed as ‘racist to its core’.
“The term ‘white privilege’ defines the unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people with white skin which are not enjoyed by people of colour or non-white backgrounds.
“The Nursing and Midwifery Board believes the cultural safety of Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander patients is just as important as their clinical safety.”
Medical care is medical care. Medicine is not based on culture let alone “cultural sensitivity”.
This has not gone without criticism, however.
If that hasn’t been declared to be a H8 crime yet, it probably will be soon…
