Is It Racist To Be On Time? Duke Medical School Seems To Think So.


There’s a troubling trend in modern American culture whereby White leftists claim they are fighting “White supremacy” by insisting that minorities are incapable of accomplishing even the simplest tasks.

That seems to be the case with a new Duke Medical School document, which was wholeheartedly endorsed by the institution’s dean.

According to the New York Post:

“In the workplace, white supremacy culture explicitly and implicitly privileges whiteness and discriminates against non-Western and non-white professionalism standards related to dress code, speech, work style, and timeliness,” the document said. “Some identifiable characteristics of this culture includes perfectionism, belief that there’s only one right way, power hoarding, individualism, sense of urgency and defensiveness.”

The dean, Dr. Mary E. Klotman, praised the guide for reflecting the medical school’s “goals, priorities and strategies.”

“Our plan for dismantling racism and advancing equity, diversity and inclusion was created with an intentional and appropriate need for flexibility,” she said. “As you read this plan, consider the actions you might take individually, with your teams, and in your local units to support our collective goals. Each of you will play an important role in advancing our mission to dismantle racism and promote equity, diversity and inclusion at Duke and beyond.”

The school’s alarming claims have already begun attracting significant attention on social media:

Another part of the document claimed White people have a “fragility.”

The term “White fragility” was coined by Robin DiAngelo in her 2018 book titled “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism.”

White fragility is described by the school as “feelings of discomfort a White person experiences when they witness or engage in discussions around racial inequality and injustice.”

Fortunately, not everyone at Duke is buying into the woke nonsense, as this professor proved earlier this year:
