Ask JAMA (top medical journal) to stop perpetuating racism in medicine

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.
