Play • 47 min

Happy Black History Month! This week we're starting a new series! We're calling this one "Racism Doesn't Exist" since so many white Americans believe that racism ended with MLK. So we're diving into the data and examining the disparities that exist between white people and Black people in every area of society. This week we're talking about the treatment of nonwhite patients in the medical field.
