Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has accused the healthcare industry of prioritizing “white skin” over minorities, saying some of her own children have been “endangered” by misdiagnoses due to their skin color.
Angelina Jolie made the claims in an op-ed published Wednesday in the American Journal of Nursing.
Jolie said her non-white children have first-hand experience with the industry’s prejudice. The actress has adopted children from Asia and Africa, while also having three children with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
“Let’s be clear: racial bias in forensic evidence collection is only one aspect of much larger societal issues that lead to health care inequities and racially biased health outcomes,” she wrote.
