Australian Nurses & Midwives Instructed to Apologize for Being White

, ,

———————–

Daily Mail story (from March):

Australian nurses and midwives are being forced to announce their ‘white privilege’ before treating Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander patients – a move which has been slammed as ‘racist to its core’.

The term ‘white privilege’ defines the unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people with white skin which are not enjoyed by people of colour or non-white backgrounds.

The Nursing and Midwifery Board believes the cultural safety of Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander patients is just as important as their clinical safety.

The evidence of their white privilege is their education and skills. Wouldn’t a better apology to these indigenous children of the earth be to not use the education and skills and allow them to enjoy their indigenousness. Perhaps stick around and see how their indigenous privilege works out for them.

“unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people…”

Awarded.

Imagine if Al Gore was president on September 11, 2001.

“The American people sincerely apologize to The World-Wide Islamic Community, in general, and to the families of the 19 brave Muslims, in particular, who the evil American people so grievously enraged as to cause them to fly three jumbo jets into massive symbols of American evil.

“Next time your young hajjis’ turbans wax too tight, first contact me and I will coordinate fighter jet escorts and ensure that no one on any US jumbo jet can interfere as did evil white men over western PA.”

Aren’t aboriginals enjoying modern technology and conveniences largely a cultural appropriation from white people? Do I hear an apology?
