Now Whites Must Get on Bended Knee! By Ian Wilson LL.B

     No, this is happening here in Oz, not in the UK or Sweden: nurses are now being forced to announce their “white privilege” when treating indigenous patients:       

     If you don’t believe me, and just don’t see it, look, here is the quote from the source:

“Australian nurses and midwives are being forced to announce their ‘white privilege’ before treating Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander patients -  a move which has been slammed as ‘racist to its core’. The term ‘white privilege’ defines the unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people with white skin which are not enjoyed by people of colour or non-white backgrounds. The Nursing and Midwifery Board believes the cultural safety of Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander patients is just as important as their clinical safety.

But Graeme Haycroft, spokesperson for the Nurses Professional Association of Queensland, (NPAQ) told Sky News the addition to the code of conduct could have serious consequences for nurses and is simply ‘racist’. The Board describes the move as ‘a decolonising model of ¬practice based on dialogue, communication, power sharing and negotiation, and the acknowledgment of white privilege’.”

     The idea that expressing some sort of cultural cringing statement while delivering treatment somehow improves clinical safety, is not only madness, but is “racist.” Apart from that, the very idea of “white privilege,” which in now trendy among academics, needs to be legally challenged. Hence, I hope some nurse decides to test this, using the state’s own anti-discrimination laws against them. It is a clear human rights violation. Does giving a cringing statement really help matters, when some indigenous person is in pain from an injury? I, for one, would be deeply offended that less than 100 percent nursing attention was being devoted to me if I was indigenous.

     There is something quite condescending and offensive about this, that nursing care comes after politics. The policy thus, could  be argued to be double racist, also offending indigenous people. This puts white nurses basically on their knees before the politically correct tyrants. And, we can be sure that only Anglo Saxon nurses will be dealt with by this matter. We will not hear about the ethno-racial privilege of other groups who logically should also be seen as colonisers of the indigenous, but who are celebrated in the multicultural theology. Why is the narrative restricted to “white privilege”? How about rich people of other colours, eh? Bit of “discrimination” there!
