The brave new world of medicine being pioneered in New Zealand.
Surgeons in Auckland, New Zealand are ‘disgusted’ over a new policy rolled out in February which requires them to address “historical disparities in healthcare access” for Māori and Pacific Island communities, which will be factored into a new ranking system that determines priority for surgical procedures.
According to leaked documents obtained by the NZ Herald, the new initative, implemented by Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand, uses an “Equity Adjustor Score” algorithm to assign priority based on clinical urgency, waitlist duration, geographic location, ethnicity and level of deprivation.
Patients of Māori and Pasifika backgrounds receive higher rankings, while European New Zealanders and other ethnicities are downranked.https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/disgusted-new-zealand-surgeons-now-required-consider-ethnicity-patients
While how this will actually work in practice is yet to be seen, it certainly sounds like Whites can and will be pushed back in the line for surgical procedures in order to address “historical disparities in healthcare access”. Not mentioned, these “indigenous” people wouldn’t have access to modern healthcare of any sort if it were not for White people.
The line of reasoning is one we have heard many times before. Māori and Pacific Islanders in New Zealand have a lower life expectancy than Whites and Kendism tells us that any and every racial disparity is necessarily the result of “racism”, the “philosophy” of anti-White racist and pseudo-intellectual Ibram X. Kendi. Therefore the only way to resolve this “disparity” in health care outcomes is to provide preferential treatment to Māori and Pacific Islanders, even if it means that Whites are pushed back in line to get surgery and therefore likely will experience worse outcomes. You can see how this works, as it is how it always works: rather than lifting up the Māori and Pacific Islanders, instead we push Whites down.
What no one in New Zealand seems to have the courage to ask: are the poor health outcomes for Māori and Pacific Islanders the result of “systemic racism” or are there other, more critical factors in play? From Wikipedia:
They are more obese, smoke more and abuse drugs and alcohol more. These are the primary factors in health problems across all racial groups. I wonder if that has any impact on their life expectancy? Sounds like our own “indigenous” population of Indians….
We see the same thing with blacks in America, being the most obese racial group they also have some of the worst health issues in America but according to Kendism, this disparity can only be explain by “racism” and never by blacks using their food stamps to buy junk food. If black “leaders” like Ibram X. Kendi and others really cared about blacks, they would use the bully pulpit in their community to tell blacks to stop eating like pigs and stop shooting each other. They won’t because people like Kendi know that doing so doesn’t sell books to guilty White liberals, their core customer base. I doubt your average black on the street has any idea who Ibram X. Kendi is but you can be sure that in the lily White neighborhoods of Northern Virginia most homes have a copy of his books conspicuously displayed to signal the virtue of the home owner to other White liberals.
Make no mistake, this is coming to American medicine soon. The people in charge of health care in America, not to be confused with the actual physicians providing that care, are all on board with “inequity”, “systemic racism” and “DEI”. What this means for you is simple: you must take charge of your own health as far as you can. Modify what you eat, get exercise, avoid things like smoking that make it more likely you will end up on a surgeon’s table.
Whites built an unbelievable modern medical system and are being systematically excluded from that system in favor of people that are squandering it and blaming us for being fat and unhealthy.
