University of Florida had some woke bullshit BLM stuff on their medical school webpages. That doesn’t surprise me in the least. I didn’t go to UF, but this is widespread throughout US colleges. I had to listen to and report on Podcasts talking about Health Equity and how all white people have privilege and are racist.
One of those podcasts talked about how black women have worse outcomes in healthcare than do white women, and this is proof of racial bias. As evidence, the podcast offered Serina Williams’ issues during childbirth to show that black women can’t get quality care, even when rich and famous.
Except that isn’t what happened. Ms. Williams has a preexisting condition requiring that she take anticoagulants to prevent blood clots. When she was to give birth by Caesarian section, the hospital told her to stop taking the anticoagulants, as they increase the chances of severe bleeding during surgery. After the surgery, she developed blood clots because she wasn’t on her medication. That happens and had nothing to do with her race.
That doesn’t matter to the woke professors that have infected our colleges. What do you do as a student? Well, you can do what I did when I was in grad school to be a PA, which was be loud and defend your opinions, but all that does is make an enemy of the professor who will then run you out of school and make certain you won’t ever be accepted to another grad school. Or, you can do what I did when I went to nursing school: keep your mouth shut, parrot the woke party line, and try to not be noticed.

My daughter is going to college studying to be a teacher. We had to have a long talk recently about this. One of her education classes was getting in to the whole gender/trans/blah-blah-blah mess. Despite being a 19 year old female, my daughter is very conservative. (I guess I did some things right, anyway.) She was ready to go toe to toe with her professor. After a long discussion, I convinced her to take option two for the same reasons you mentioned under option one. I told her that reasonable adults should be able to have a discussion about their different idea, and that’s what college should be. But, I told her this is one issue where she can’t expect a reasonable discussion. We broke it down to what was to be gained from being the voice of disent, and there realy wasn’t an upside. It’s one of those unfortunate times where you have to help your child see the world as it realy is, not how it should be.

Also known as ‘picking your battles’.
Something lost on many folks is that you may win the battle but still lose the war.
