A female doctor who is both Harvard-educated and biracial says she is being canceled after voicing disagreement with segregating patient care by race at a Minneapolis health system.
Dr. Tara Gustilo, who served as head of the OB/GYN department for Hennepin Healthcare System, said she was demoted in June after criticizing Black Lives Matter on her social media page, according to DailyMail.com.
Gustilo’s complaint says she received spotless job performance reviews during her six years heading a 32-person team.
In the wake of the 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, made into a political rallying cry by Democrats and the media, Gustilo criticized diversity training and said it was “actually teaching racism.”
In a Sept. 25, 2020 Facebook post, she wrote: “Why are we not teaching that judging by immutable qualities is ridiculous? … Instead, the approach being promoted is to teach that because a person is white, they are necessarily racist and privileged. Isn’t this the type of thinking we are trying to eradicate?’
Gustilo lost her job heading the OB/GYN department because “some of my colleagues saw my post and determined I was no longer “fit” to be chair,” she said.
She says that the new policy instituted by the department had “black caregivers assigned to black patients.”
