In 2010 Robin DiAngelo co-authored “Addressing Whiteness in Nursing Education-The Sociopolitical Climate Project at the University Of Washington School Of Nursing”. The paper described using an antiracist perspective to change the climate of whiteness in academic nursing.
Here is a link to the paper:…
Fast forward to this summer when many schools of nursing updated and/or created Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committees and pledged to undo racism. Many schools of nursing use critical theory as a lens. This thread highlights a few nursing schools and their commitments.
The University of Austin Texas School of Nursing made the following statements: “It is more evident than ever that the systems we have inherited are not broken; they are operating exactly as they were designed.....(cont.)"
"Though we did not create them, it is our imperative to dismantle them and create equitable systems in their place….We firmly stand by the belief that all lives cannot matter until Black Lives Matter.”…
Yale School of Nursing made a commitment to Anti-Racism on June 18, 2020. YSN apologizes for the harm it has caused and states that to address institutional and anti-Black racism they are committed to decentralizing White supremacy
YSN: “everyone in the school has a role and a stake in this work”. They list eight initial actions towards anti-racism (see captures).
Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Health Science Colleges Lists four Diversity Training Options. One is a 21-Day Anti-Racism Challenge. See captures for the suggested reading:
After the 21-Day Anti-Racism Challenge at OSU, there is the option to participate in 'Conversations that Matter':
The Rollins School of Public Health at Emory has created an action plan based on student demands:
On the Resources & Ways To Get Involved section of the Emory Rollins School of Public Health website there is a reading list for students. Incoming RSPH students are required to read at least one of the texts on the list.
August 2020: "nursing must also develop antiracist practice, research, and education to begin to address racism. The status quo of race-neutral, race-blind, or culturally competent care will only strengthen existing disparities”…

"The audience for the film's screening at YBCA included white children. White children watched black adults calming discussing why they didn't kill more white people."

Well this thread was shocking. 😬

"Specifically, the new policy recognizes racism in its systemic, cultural, interpersonal, and other forms as a serious threat to public health, to the advancement of health equity, and a barrier to appropriate medical care"…

" do you infuse [antiracist curriculum] across all of the learning in medical education so that it’s not this sort of drop in the bucket one-time thing....Above all, courses that delve into Systemic Racism need to be required."…
"AAMC has organized a committee of experts to develop an anti-racism curriculum for every step of medical education. They hope to share their work publicly this month and talk to the LCME about developing and implementing these standards."

I am seeing so many tweets with takes like this: "the president's rhetoric is incredibly damaging to our sacred norms of a peaceful transfer of power". This should really stop.
I am not completely dismissing the idea that Trump's rhetoric can be inflammatory (it is one of his known faults). He has been loud and often obnoxious his entire presidency; he doesn't have a socially accepted filter. That does not equate with undermining democracy.
The fact is that he has until the Dec. 8 deadline to resolve election disputes at the state level. This is a part of due process. If after that point he is still tweeting about election fraud, then it is a concern.

Bo says later in his thread "if Trump has evidence of fraud, then the courts should look at it and decide. Everybody agrees. But that's not what Trump is doing. And everybody also knows that. He will likely never fully concede".
What? Do you have proof or just hyperbole?

Geoff says Pfizer head of vaccine development Dr. Kathrin Jansen told the NY Times “We were never part of the Warp Speed ... We have never taken any money from the U.S. government, or from anyone.”

Well, NYT is as credible anymore as those rags at the endcaps in grocery stores
What happened to NTY credibility? For starters read this:…
