Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine: Systemic Racism in Medical Honors

AOA is a medical honors society that's supposed to separate top-tier medical students from the rest of the pack. It helps determine which doctors get the top jobs in the most competitive fields. The problem? There's implicit racism in the way it chooses members, and fixing it may be a massive challenge.

I thought this would did a great job of showing how, even if no one has any racist intentions when forming a system, systemic racism still results and has significant deleterious effects on Black people's lives.

And, yeah, that's a pretty big hypothetical 'if' up there.
