Now doctors and nurses are ‘racists’ – right
Betsy McCaughey: If infant mortality is higher among blacks, how about addressing actual causes?

Doctors and nurses are not racists. They’re everyday heroes. But left-wing activists and their media allies, including The New York Times, blame health care workers for the poorer health outcomes of black patients. That’s a cheap shot and a lie.
On Sunday, the Times published a front-page story based on an analysis of U.S. census data showing that black women die during childbirth or lose their newborns more often than white women. Even affluent black women and their babies die at higher rates. Money doesn’t insulate them from worse health outcomes.
The actual analysis didn’t blame racism for what happens to black mothers, or include any evidence – not a shred – that doctors and nurses caring for pregnant women and newborns are racist.
Even so, the Times pushed the conclusion that higher death rates are the “effects of racism” because minority mothers are “treated differently and given different access to interventions.” That’s false.
