A recent survey of 222 White medical students and residents showed that 50% of them endorsed at least one myth about the physiological differences between Black people and White people i.e. Black people’s nerve endings are less sensitive so they are less susceptible to pain. This makes them less likely to recommend appropriate treatments. One third of these DOCTORS believed that Black skin is just thicker than White skin.
Racial biases that people take with them to their jobs everyday continue to harm Blacks in frightening ways all over this country.
