Our Country’s New “Race-Based” Healthcare System Is a “Hate Crime” Against White People

Revolver, February 15, 2022

America had a hearty laugh mixed with mild horror this week when it learned that the Biden Administration is planning to distribute free crack pipes to drug addicts for the sake of “racial equity.”


We had another chuckle when the propaganda press tried to “fact check” the completely true claim as “mostly false.”

It was funny, and a fitting sign of how embarrassing and pathetic America’s federal bureaucracy has become. But while it’s fun to laugh at the Biden Administration fighting “racism” with free crack pipes, let’s not forget about a far more disturbing and ominous case of racial discrimination in the provision of public goods.

Suddenly, and with shockingly little public discussion, debate, or even acknowledgment, America has become a country where medical treatment is granted, or denied, on the basis of skin color. Specifically, it’s become a country where it is acceptable to send white people, and only white people, to be the back of the line, for reasons of fighting “systemic racism.”

Shortly after the new year, Aaron Sibarium of the Washington Free Beacon shone a light on anti-white medical policies adopted in New York, Minnesota, and Utah:

In New York, racial minorities are automatically eligible for scarce COVID-19 therapeutics, regardless of age or underlying conditions. In Utah, “Latinx ethnicity” counts for more points than “congestive heart failure” in a patient’s “COVID-19 risk score”—the state’s framework for allocating monoclonal antibodies. And in Minnesota, health officials have devised their own “ethical framework” that prioritizes black 18-year-olds over white 64-year-olds—even though the latter are at much higher risk of severe disease. [WFB]

Tucker Carlson covered the story on Fox, and a week later President Trump joined the chorus as well. That coverage in turn brought a series of sinister “fact checks” that sought to “debunk” the story’s premise.

[T]here is no evidence they being sent to the “back of the line” for COVID-19 care as a matter of public health policy.

Trump distorted a New York policy that allows for race to be one consideration when dispensing oral antiviral treatments, which are in limited supply. The policy attempts to steer those treatments to people at the most risk of severe disease from the coronavirus. [AP]

But shortly after that, the story largely faded from public attention. With the Omicron wave waning and even blue states eager to repeal Covid health theater ahead of election season, the saga of multiple states deliberately discriminating against white Americans for treatment is already being forgotten by the right. Most who do mention it simply see it as an opportunity to hammer the left politically.  {snip}


All these reactions fall short. It is time to be bold, and start treating anti-white discrimination in medicine for what it really is: a heinous crime.

Far from there being “no evidence” of whites being sent to the “back of the line” for Covid care, that is exactly what New York was doing with its policies regarding monoclonal antibodies. New York’s policy required at least one “risk factor” in order to receive antibody treatment, and the policy explicitly declared that being any race except white was a risk factor. This decision wasn’t based on any genuine weighing of the demographic numbers. If it was, the policy wouldn’t include Asian ethnicity as a risk factor, since Asians have fared better than whites in combating Covid. And if it was, the policy actually wouldn’t exist at all, because multiple studies have found that Covid-19 racial gaps vanish after controlling for other clinical factors that medical workers could be tracking instead.

Even New York itself admits the policy wasn’t ground in any serious modeling. The justification given in the state’s own memo is that “longstanding systemic health and social inequities” justify putting whites last. In other words, it’s Critical Race Theory applied to health care: Whites have had it better, so they deserve to get it worse. The Associated Press has continued to pump out “fact checks” justifying this explicitly racialist view of American health policy.

Some conservatives are taking aim at policies that allow doctors to consider race as a risk factor when allocating scarce COVID-19 treatments, saying the protocols discriminate against white people.

Medical experts say the opposition is misleading. Health officials have long said there is a strong case for considering race as one of many risk factors in treatment decisions. And there is no evidence that race alone is being used to decide who gets medicine. [AP]

This excuse would never work elsewhere in American life, or here for that matter if the races were simply reversed. For decades, American life has been ruled by the doctrine of disparate impact, where even unintended differences in racial outcomes are treated as massive civil rights violations:

Disparate impact is the legal theory that a policy or practice can be illegal under civil rights law even if nobody is actually treated differently on account of their race. That is, even if a policy is totally race-neutral and meritocratic on its face and in its execution, it can still “perpetuate” a “racist outcome” which our brutally unjust clown regime labels discrimination, or as they call it, “disparate treatment”.


Could you imagine the AP racing to defend a country club that used race as “one of many factors” for admission? Or a housing co-op? Of course not. The Associated Press and other fact-checking deboonkers aren’t providing actual rebuttals to Sibarium’s article or the others that have followed in its wake. They are simply speaking the language of power, the tongue which lets them vomit out the most shameless elisions and inconsistencies without a care. There is no concern about whether any of this is true or makes any sense. The law of the land is what they say it is. And what they say is that whites get treated last, just like they get to be punished in school admissions or scholarship applications or government contracts.

So, what is the proper response to this? Treat these policies for what they really are, and prosecute their creators for anti-white hate crimes. Public officials in Utah, Minnesota, and New York chose to give potentially life-saving medical treatment to some, while denying it to others, on the most flimsy, half-baked justifications imaginable.

At a minimum, white Americans were stripped of their dignity and labeled second-class citizens. At worst, people died because of Critical Race Theory as applied to healthcare. This is not simply bad policymaking. It is already, at this very moment, a crime. The offense is already illegal under federal law, under Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242:


This law is already used dozens of times per year, as the main federal weapon for prosecuting police who use excessive (or “excessive”) force. For instance, while Derek Chauvin has already been convicted of murder for kneeling atop George Floyd as he died of a fentanyl overdose, the three other officers present at the scene are all on trial for depriving Floyd of his civil rights simply for not getting Chauvin off Floyd’s neck. {snip}

In the prison system, guards have received multi-year prison sentences for showing “willful indifference” to the medical needs of inmates.

The same thinking ought to apply here. A prison warden who gave medical treatment only to white inmates, but not black ones, or who concocted half-baked reasons for giving white inmates preferential treatment, would and should be harshly punished. There is no reason the same thinking should not apply to health officials deciding who will receive medicines that the government has a monopoly on the distribution of.
