The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on Wednesday featuring a witness who calls for the elimination of “whiteness.”
The subcommittee on health will hold a hearing titled, “Health Care Inequality: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in COVID-19 and the Health Care System.”
The hearing will detail the alleged racial and ethnic disparities in America’s healthcare system. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) claimed in a memo about the hearing “studies also show that racial and ethnic minorities receive lower-quality health care even when insurance status or severity of conditions are comparable.”
The hearing will include three witnesses to testify about the subject:
Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH. Boyd is a pediatrician and child health advocate at Palo Alto Medical Foundation. National Medical Association President Oliver T. Brooks, MD. Avik Roy, president of the foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity. Boyd’s testimony may enflame controversy as House staffers and even the Wall Street Journal recently raised the alarm over Boyd’s inflammatory remarks.
