In a newspaper piece that reads like bigotry on the march
And it completely misses the real story. A decision by UW Medicine to affiliate with a Catholic system is being treated like a decision to affiliate with Black health systems in the 1830s, or Jewish health systems in the 1930s in certain parts of the world. It's just amazing to see the bigotry and see where it's going. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, we always asked why. Why were Americans so racist? Why did the Germans follow Hitler? Why were the southerners so against Blacks? How could people treat a group of other human beings that way? Well, turn on the tube and watch or pick up a local paper. It's like a historical case study in the making. And no made for TV movies needed to help us get the point.
