Q. Have you ever been a member of the AMA?

A. Hell no. And the reason why is because the AMA has a long history of racism and discrimination against public health and national health insurance. The National Medical Association had to be formed because the AMA wouldn't let black physicians in.

The American Medical Association famously apologized yesterday for being racist, details TK next week. Judith Graham from the Trib's Triage medical blog talked to Dr. Carl Bell, a professor at UIC's med school, about racial discrimination in the medical establishment. Definitely worth a read.
