    Excellence every day E E D

    silent racism: open your eyes --> how many nonwhite patients, doctors, technicians, nurse, executives, or upper management do you know or see that are NONWHITE?

    Advice to Management

    2017: MGH is a prestigious hospital club of whites

    1)This organization is a corporate capitalistic monger under the guise of a nonprofit acute care hospital serving the white population with pride.

    2)Patient care service is provided MAJORITY to "financially well" white patients. Look around, money flows so effortlessly through MGH = business acumen.

    3)Opportunities that are NOT assistant/support roles are given to whites. HR and PR, look at your numbers and provide a ratio in your response. Prove me wrong.

    4)Racist ideologies have been evident and prevalent at MGH for at least 200 years. Everyone who is not white knows this. And, everyone who IS white knows this. Stop your whispering behind closed doors or with your peers/friends.

    5)Majority of the people who say this organization is wonderful with five-star rating is white. The nonwhites who are out there...hmmh what is your story? The TRUTH, please.

    6)Salary inequality exists at MGH = this inequality award goes to nonwhites and/or women.

    7)Promotion inequality exists at MGH = this inequality award goes to nonwhites especially men who have eumelanin in their skin.

    8)To overlook these inequalities, nonwhite folks are hired at below salary range to that of their white counterpart and promotions are next to none or… nonwhites wait in line while your white counterpart excels at an alarming rate as YOU do THEIR job. Oh, but if you kiss some behinds and find a good white mentor to ally with you may go a little bit further than your nonwhite counterpart.

    9)Some nonwhite folks are blinded by these prejudices, inequalities, and racist attitudes or behaviors. Why? Because nonwhites are thankful for the opportunity and settle. NOTE: To my nonwhite folks --> MGH is not the beginning nor the end AND should not be yours. Be brave, be daring, have courage to know that there is better beyond the walls of MGH.

    10)MGH will do everything and anything to prevent these truths from being exposed. MGH puts little efforts in place to address the engraved racism at their organization. The more white they surround themselves with, the more right they feel. Ignorance is their bliss thus silence racism.

    BONUS FACT: MGH purposefully deprives nonwhites from excelling for fear of true competition AND because they do not want nonwhites to be successful enough to afford to live in their communities outside of the city of Boston. This institutional mechanism is engraved within MGH. (Hmmh, why then is gentrification happening in Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury, etc? I digress.)

    So, why is MGH number #1?

    Think about this you so-called intellects!

    Well, MGH does not serve a population with patient care issues different from whites; for instance, Boston Medical Center, Tufts Medical, or Beth Israel Deaconess. Look at MGH's patient demographics in comparison. MGH can be top in the nation, because they play it safe = racist = control = serving 90% white patients.

    This is my call to you, nonwhites, band together and create your own hospital... you will soon see that MGH cannot survive without you in your assistant, support, cleaning, mailroom (non-executive or management) roles. You are the heart, so demand equality not just in opportunity but salary and always be prepared to walk away. MGH is always prepared to turn you away. End white supremacy forever.

    Interested to see the responses to this from people who are white or nonwhites who are blinded by the silent yet blatant racism prevalent at Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Go MGH! I know PR and HR will swoop in to save the day...the real MVPs.
