Obama's New Surgeon General

This one from the Irish Savant. Another Affirmative Appointment from the Obama administration.

*****

You’re looking to appoint the Surgeon General – the top Government medical post in the US. Where do you look for a suitable candidate, one capable of inspiring a new generation of medical break-throughs? The Mayo Clinic? Harvard Medical School?

Or an obscure backwoods practice lost somewhere in a Louisiana swamp?

If you’re part of Obama’s ‘colour-blind’ Administration, you’d go for the last option. Why? Because it’s one of the few places you’ll find a black physician. And being black seems to be the one and only qualification that Dr. Regina Benjamin – a 20 stone mountain of fat - seems to have.
.
Admittedly she ‘graduated’ from one of the country’s handful of black medical schools. These ‘graduates’ are so poorly qualified that almost all end up in administrative roles on the government payroll. In those instances where they are let loose on the general public the results can be literally life-threatening, as in the case of the Martin Luther King Hospital in Los Angeles which had to be closed down to protect the public.

With such a background you’d hardly expect here to announce some stunning innovative thinking in her maiden speech. And she didn’t disappoint.

“In what was one of her first speeches to a large crowd since she was sworn in Nov. 3, Dr. Regina Benjamin noted that the proportion of U.S. physicians who are minorities is only 6 percent—the same proportion as a century ago.

In a 27-minute speech, Benjamin told health leaders in the audience to encourage young minorities to pursue careers in medicine or other ambitions.”

That's right folks, she spent nearly half an hour winging that ‘minorities’ (read blacks – there are huge numbers of Asian doctors in the US) are under-represented. ‘It be racism’, I presume was her message.
.
Blacks have a big problem in graduating from proper medical schools because, with their lower IQ levels they can't handle the academic workload. It’s as simple as that. Wherever you see black PhDs you’ll note that they’re invariably in the soft subjects like ebonics, black history, languages, racism reparation studies or other crap like that. And that's so because faculty in those fields, being culturally sensitive, can award the highest degrees, secure in the knowledge that it doesn’t matter and that nobody really gives a shit anyway.

However, in science, engineering and medicine there’s usually only one right answer. And that's where blacks come unstuck. According to two of my friends who are doctors in the US, reputable medical schools there did try to push through unqualified blacks a few decades ago – at the expense of whites, of course. However, they failed their internships in droves, which then (happily) reflected back on the medical school faculty.
.
Presumably then the new SG will be pleased with another medical initiative from the colour-blind Obama Administration. Thanks to Rastus for this link to the National Review)

“It directs the secretary of health and human services to award federal grants worth billions of dollars to educational institutions that train medical-service providers. However, “priority” for federal dollars is to be given only to those institutions offering “preferential” admissions to underrepresented minorities”

The measure will force medical institutions to hire based on race and sex, not qualifications, and to lower their admission standards, which will lead to even more “low-quality” doctors. Medical students admitted based on lower qualifications generally perform more poorly on licensing exams.Race-based admissions end up endangering patients — such as those treated by Patrick Chavis, one of whom bled to death due to Chavis’s medical malpractice.


Chavis was the black applicant admitted to the University of California at Davis Medical School even though he had much weaker academic qualifications than Allan Bakke, a white applicant who was rejected from the school and subsequently was the plaintiff in a famous Supreme Court case. Chavis eventually lost his medical license because of his gross negligence, incompetence, and “inability to perform some of the most basic duties required of a physician.”

By the way, in 1996 (before Chavis was found out), Senator Edward M. Kennedy called him a "perfect example" of how affirmative action worked.

Boy, Ted got a lot of things wrong, but he sure struck paydirt with that!

As the song goes, ‘when will they ever learn’. Why don't white Americans rise up in righteous indignation?

Obama, the kaffir President, does not care if anyone is qualified or not - all he wants is communists or stupid kaffirs.

Sounds like SA.

"As the song goes, ‘when will they ever learn’. Why don't white Americans rise up in righteous indignation?" They would be slammed as racist by Liberal whites who want so much for blacks to succeed. Then they would feel less guilty about being white.

Where have I heard this before? Oh wait a minute, I think I heard this kind of "We are the trodden ones" here in SA a couple of thousand times.

Many African Americans are mercifully not really negros anymore, they've mixed with and assimilated whites and white values. This surgeon general doesn't look all that black to me, and as for her weight, you don't see all that many slender white women in the USA, everyone's gorging on fast food.

Fast food or not, South Africa has far more problems than America. I'd trade places any day.

Dachshund@7:33, you make it sound like you think it´s a good idea if whites and blacks mix their blood.
Every drop of white blood that gets mixed into the black pot is a disaster for our race.
KEEP OUR BLOOD PURE. Anything else is downgrading.

You are going to have some people of mixed race everywhere, it's unavoidable.

What is avoidable is whether you choose to hate them.

In the USA yhey have the "one drop rule". Is there any of the US readers that define or shed some light on this unwritten rule?

Dachshund said...

The one-drop rule was a tactic used in the US South to codify and strengthen segregation and the disfranchisement of most blacks AS WELL AS MANY POOR WHITES from 1890-1910.

It's obsolete. In any case, most Afrikaners wouldn't pass the one-drop rule.

Viking said...

in the US you could still be sold as a slave if you were 1/16th black, so there were a lot of white slaves .. I suspect that's the origin of the 'rule'.
But, black Americans used to discriminate amongst themselves, hence the 'paper bag rule' which you can Google for yourselves, and if you think whitey is responsible for that bear in mind that Indians have been self-categorising like that for centuries.

Every culture in the world has valued lighter skin over darker ...

Viking said...

I think Savant makes an interesting point about the state of "Asians" in the US - Steve Sailer often discusses how "minorities" in America isn't really about numbers of people, as Jews and Asian-Americans are hardly ever considered minorities even though they clearly are. Even homosexuals are called minorities!

Frequently, Asian-Americans (who are a tiny percentage) are the biggest victims of AA policies, as they greatly overperform and hardly commit any crimes. Obviously, there's a contrast between high-IQ Asians like Chinese and Koreans and low-IQ like Cambodians etc.

The contrast with SA is very interesting, where a numeric minority is gleefully discriminated against for political reasons, even though anywhere else in the world this would be a human-rights issue.
