This week, the most radical portion of representation came through Beyoncé’s internet:
As one who went to nursing school, sitting in science classes with diagrams of WHITE WOMEN and WHITE MEN—I’m in awe.
It’s one thing to know a system is racist. It’s another to see just HOW racist?! I mean, I’ve sat in classes where there were NO diagrams of Black people in the entire book! Yet, they want to medical professionals to do assess physical symptoms (sometimes on skin!), never seeing anything but WHITE skin!
Man. Here we are…and look how far we have to go.
