It has been discovered that the University of Minnesota Medical School is forcing potential students to prove their loyalty to Black Lives Matter on school applications.
According to the Daily Caller, there are statements and questions on the application concerning social justice, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, and more.
“Right now is a watershed moment in American history and this country’s reckoning with race, racism, racial injustice, and especially anti-black hatred,” a section on the application reads.
“If you feel comfortable, we welcome you to please share with us your reflections on, experiences with, and greatest lessons learned about systemic racism that is receiving international attention with the murders of numerous Black, Indigenous, and People of Color including but not limited to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Vanessa Guillen, Rayshard Brooks, and Elijah McClain,” it continues.
The school fully admitted the loyalty test is on the application and claimed it is meant to measure a potential student’s “sociocultural humility.”
“Committee members can use the responses to supplemental questions, and several other parts of the application, to inform their evaluation of sociocultural humility,” University of Minnesota spokesperson Katrinna Dodge told Daily Caller.
“This seeks to identify evidence of a candidate’s ability to treat others with respect, interact with others from diverse backgrounds, recognize bias, adjust behavior in response to others’ needs, and their awareness of how sociocultural factors impact diverse groups of people,” she said in her initial response.
“Upon graduation and residency, this will help prepare our students to provide the best care to patients from all walks of life,” Dodge added.
“[A]n application cannot be rejected based on choosing not to answer this question or based on how it may be answered,” she said.
You can bet the last claim is an outright lie.
They would not have it on the application if it was not meant to force applicants to pledge their loyalty to Black Lives Matter and to be used as a means to reject them if they do not.
This existence of this question is an outrage and it should be removed.
