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.

She has since filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

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.”
