White Nurses Forced to Take ‘Implicit Bias’ Course under Threat of ‘Discipline’

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) An ultra-woke Kentucky Board of Nursing forced nurses to take an “implicit bias” course to “recognize the history of racism in healthcare” and threatened “discipline” if a nurse decides to not bend the knee.

Nurses were forced to complete by July 1 the self-hating “mandatory continuing education” training that was developed by the Kentucky Nurses Association, the Washington Examiner reported.

“They pretty much said we’re all guilty of being racist and we need to examine the way that we take care of patients and change our behaviors because we are giving substandard care,” said Rebecca Wall, a Kentucky certified registered nurse anesthetist with 40 years of experience.

The training that was presented by KNA Board of Directors Treasurer Arica Brandford and KNA CEO Delanor Manson informed nurses in the opening slide of the presentation that “best intentions will not solve implicit bias in healthcare,” while additionally showing a picture of Ku Klux Klan members burning a cross on another slide.

“I had to make a decision at that point as to whether or not I was going to bite the bullet and agree with the assumption that they had that we were all racist,” said Wall, who ultimately was forced into saving her job by taking the training.

“It’s offensive to be told if you don’t do this course, you’re out after 40 years. A whole career spent in the field [is ruined] because you don’t agree to the one dogma: you’re done, you’re valueless, you’re not worth it anymore.”

Laura Morgan, a nurse with 39 years of experience and program manager at the medical advocacy group Do No Harm, also added that one form of “discipline” could be the non-renewal of a license.

The presentation also showed a diagram of “overt racism” and “covert racism,” including a white woman asking a black woman where she is from as an example of “covert racism.”

Other examples of “covert racism” were “white silence,” “denying institutional racism,” saying “there’s only one human race,” denying “white privilege,” “bootstrap theory,” “Eurocentric school curricula,” “weaponizing whiteness,” “fetishizing POC,” “claiming ‘reverse racism,’” “excusing / ‘white-splaining’ racism” and many more.

Examples of “overt racism” were lynching, painting swastikas and “public harassment of [non-white people] speaking other than English.”
