An unequal race: How BME GPs face tougher hurdles


Perhaps the U.K. has a better standard of medical education compaired with some other countries. Perhaps the over representation of BME Drs in the workforce says something about the kind of people who choose to become Drs in the first place. Perhaps the option to blame your failings on someone elses predudice and not your own inadequacy is a very tempting proprosition. Perhaps the U.K. is unusually intolerant and racism isn’t a problem elsewhere in countries like Germany, France, the USA, Saudi Arabia, China, Syria, Sudan, Nigeria, Russia, Belarus, Pakistan and India. Perhaps we should all go live in another country where there aren’t any horrible white people. Perhaps some folk are getting a little board with all the moaning. Perhaps the issue has multiple layers. I’ve said it before but this time I mean it. I’ve had it with PULSE, I’ve had it with medicine, I’ve had it with this increasingly unrepresentative, victim, moaning profession, completely awash with traditional ‘minority groups’ but still carping like they hadn’t noticed and it was still 1983. Good riddance. You’ll be so much better off without one of the others. No psychoanalysis please. Just piss off.
