Should You Only Go To A White Doctor?

Possibly, or maybe an Asian doctor.

...for applicants with an MCAT score between 24-26 and a GPA between 3.00 and 3.19, only 1 out of every 25 Asian applicants was accepted, compared to about one out of every 11 white applicants, one of out every three Hispanics, and more than half of black applicants with those same credentials.

Medical School Acceptance Rates, 2007-2009

Thanks, "liberals", for making people look like racists when they have doubts about minority doctors, when in fact, due to affirmative action's reverse racism, those doubts may be justified.


  1. What you fail to consider is that after being accepted into medical school, black and latino students must all take and pass the SAME intense medical school curriculum as white and asian students, after which they must also pass the USMLE exam (for which the Federation of State Medical Boards doesn't care what race you are).
    After proving that they have learned all the material and jumped through all the hoops required to become licensed phycisians, even though studies show they disproportionally face greater adversity, have fewer resources and support from their families, it's amazing that blacks and latinos still have to confront ignorance from people such as yourself.
    At the end of the day, a black or latino doctor is just as qualified as a white or asian doctor because he has passed the same standardize licensing exam that SAYS he is qualified.
    Let's remember that becoming licensed as a doctor is based on the USMLE and not the MCAT, after all.
