Kenny Xu wants DEI gone at every medical school

The young conservative activist Kenny Xu is not just talking about a revolution.

He’s dead serious about ensuring that Americans are treated by qualified doctors — not those accepted to med schools because of their victim status or the color of their skin, he told The Post.

Do you agree or disagree with K-Wu ? Is Meritocracy more important or less important in the medical field than DEI ?

I think that there are plenty of people who may be good with tests but not good with knowing their own limits. Hierarchical systems hurt people and arrogant people hurt people all the time. They have a lot invested in the idea that they can never be wrong and they are often beholden to financial interests.

R16, a lot of what “qualified doctors” learn in medical school is biased figures from studies that were paid for by corporations. Maximum benefits, minimized side effects. Are a lot of them good at math and logic? Sure. But they don’t know what they don’t know and they are overconfident in their own expertise. A person could memorize the whole internet and still be biased in terms of what they believe and how they act. So countering that bias is critical.

Also, all human beings are animals and having an ability at memorization doesn’t take away our instinctive tendency to take shortcuts in decision making. “Qualified doctors” can skip steps, take shortcuts, and do illogical things all the time. What you care about matters.

Abilities and value go beyond testing and even beyond humanity. Try navigating through migration like a bird or networking underground like a tree. Under the religion of animism, everything had a soul but under nihilism, nothing has inherent value. I would rather have someone who cares about doing research and helping me. As long as they can do that, I don’t care how much they could memorize at one time for a test.

I've dealt with a shitload of white and Asian doctors and they were terrible. I had a black doctor (African) who was brilliant. Basic standardized testing is not enough.

I had one doctor with the glowing, Ivy League creds and he was awful. Bad diagnosis and unhelpful. I'm no longer impressed with whatever school they went to.

by Anonymousreply 22March 18, 2023 4:45 PM

As someone who's half-Asian myself, Asians can be really short-sighted about this sort of stuff. And kind of racist towards those with darker tones, like black people or Indians.

I'm sure Kenny thinks he earned everything he got by himself. And maybe he did.

But he'll always be a looked down minority to some people, probably the very people he's cozying up to, no matter how much of a Model Minority he tries to be.

We saw that with COVID.

I love how conservatives claim to support "meritocracy"......but then they elect a game show host with no political experience to be president of the United States.

They think George Santos and Lauren Boebert are qualified to be members of Congress. They think Herschel Walker was qualified to be a US Senator. They voted for Tommy Tuberville, a not-terribly-bright football coach, to be a Senator.

So spare me the bullshit about "meritocracy"

The medical profession has no shortage of ESL doctors one generation removed from an over-populated "Third World" nation who are so accustomed to mass misery and death that they would not bat an eye at yours.

I don't care who they are, I want doctors to be well qualified. If it's apples to apples with the exception of skin color, fine, give the minority a spot. If the applicant has lower test scores and grades than their non minority counterparts (or vice versa), then that should be a no go.

by Anonymousreply 37March 18, 2023 6:35 PM

Good for the NYPost for reporting about this guy's efforts.

There should be a debate about DEI.

Even the NYTimes is coming around with two recent opinion pieces on the subject.

You can just tell this guy would have terrible bedside manner and zero compassion for his patients. Well educated children of well educated PRC immigrants can be so arrogant. They think being top of their class in standardized testing makes them gods.

If he's so obsessed with test scores they should introduce personality tests and weed out those without the compassion for the job. I'm sure he wouldn't be such a fan after that.

I’m an old…er person. I’ve been through the medical gamut. Nothing serious but a lot of shit like back problems etc. I’m not not knocking white male doctors necessarily, but the best care I got was from minorities/women. Truly, women were the best. Never had a bad female doctor.

Forget all this good bedside manner, hold my hand, kind, compassionate bullshit. I want a doctor who has a deep understanding of his craft & has the deft, precise side skill to apply it. If he or she does it with a smile, then great. But being nice about it is the very last requirement I'd have. I want top care from a top qualified professional.
