I learn more and more each day how some of my attitudes have been shaped by systemic racism and its been a fruitful journey to make me a better person. I still have much to learn. So does my profession.

Historically, the AMA has been on the wrong of history so many times. They need systemic cultural change to be responsive to the real needs of America's physicians.

Structural racism runs so deep in health care that this podcast was published by JAMA!

The JAMA Clinical Reviews podcast on structural racism was a disaster of entitled, privileged, white supremacist ignorant swagger. Its still posted. Take it down. Archive it for historical and critical analysis purposes, but take it down now. I have never belonged to the AMA because it has repeatedly and persistently stood on the wrong side of history and the public good. Its performance had improved lately through working groups of rank & file. But the fish rots from the head. The leadership of entitled, privileged, elite, powerful, mutually well-connected white men needs to be vetted and mostly replaced with qualified but overlooked leaders from other groups. Only then and after proven organizational performance improvement might I join.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This is long overdue and need to be done in all major American (and beyond) institutions, from medical to housing, from banking to education.

The medical profession must OWN - and work to remedy - its institutional arrangements that, in effect, perpetuate racial inequity in health.
