The last time we checked in on the American Medical Association, it was advocating that sex be removed from birth certificates. Now Jesse Singal reports that the AMA has just released “Advancing Health Equity: A Guide to Language, Narrative and Concepts.” The word “equity” should throw up red flags for anyone who’s been watching was departments of diversity, equity, and inclusion have been up to in the corporate, government, and academic worlds.

Like much “anti-racist” training, the guide kicks off with a “Land and Labor Acknowledgement,” listing the tribes displaced from where the AMA’s headquarters now stands, and also acknowledges “the extraction of brilliance, energy and life for labor forced upon millions of people of African descent for more than 400 years.”

For example, plain statement of fact: “Factors such as our race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status should not play a role in our health.” The revision: “Social injustices including racism or class exploitation, e.g., social exclusion and marginalization, should be confronted directly, so that they do not influence health outcomes.”

Singal’s right; the AMA is changing the language to make it difficult to express yourself without subscribing to progressivism — very “1984.”
