The governing bodies are not the culprits. It is 'the people' who constitute the structure of any society. There is still a large section of society in developed countries that treat the immigrants from other countries as 'lesser humans'. Sometimes, the expression of dissent is so higher that such incidences make the headlines of national journals. But the matter of concern is that most of the cases or daily life racist behaviour goes unnoticed. Those who become victims of such behaviour are terribly devastated and develop a feeling of fear and hatred towards the assailant and the society he represents. This leads to the vicious cycle of hatred and revenge. There have been numerous violent and unexpected repercussions in the past that denote nothing but the ill effects of racism.
as a very gentle and caring female asian physician, I encountered a lot of biases. This is not about minority matter, this is about people’s overal attitude. we should agaist all type of biases, it should not only be “black life matter”, it should also be “Asian life matter and all life matter”. While finghting again discrimination and biases, we should be aware that using one type of discrimination to against another type of discrimination is wrong. We should all follow one equal standard and against all types of discrimination and biases not only in medicine, everywhere.
In a system like the one that exists in modern America, social workers are fighting a losing battle. Racial discourse is so fundamental to modern media, and so heavily biased in favor of the white power structure, that changing it seems an impossible task. But great social change has happened before and it can happen again. The need for social workers will never go away because there will always be members of the population down on their luck or faced with crushing obstacles; but if race could be removed from the equation then their load might be lessened and the challenges they face on the job might be reduced.
