Roots and Consequences of Public Health Critical Race Theory

Jacob and Eric discuss the latest vaccination woes as the CDC recommends pulling the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Plus, it turns out that oppression pays—at least if you're a BLM co-founder.

For the main topic, they discuss the potential lethal discrimination that comes from the belief in systemic racism in public health. Jacob dives into the roots of this belief, known as the Public Health Critical Race Framework, and looks at one of its early theorists, Camara Phyllis Jones, who was advocating for this stuff two decades ago—long before terms like "white privilege," "systemic racism," "racial equity," and "reparations" were concepts few had heard of or taken seriously.
