So much for “white privilege” now that race is a factor in who does and does not get medical treatment.

Harrison Hill Smith, who hosts the radio show American Journal on the InfoWars network, learned the hard way on Saturday that the toxic ideas of “antiracism”, “critical race theory”, and “equity” have seeped into healthcare and are being implemented.

Smith tested positive for the coronavirus recently and was denied monoclonal antibody treatment because he didn’t “qualify” because he “didn’t meet the criteria” but he would have if he had been black or Hispanic.

Earlier this year, Texas’s Department of Health and Human Services made monoclonal antibody treatment available to residents. The treatment is available for people who have tested positive for the virus within 10 days, are not hospitalized, have mild to moderate symptoms, and who are at risk for serious illness, which, if you watch Corporate Media, means everyone.

The Texas HHS website states, “Qualification depends on age, health history, how long you’ve had symptoms of COVID-19, and other factors” but does not list race as a factor.

This “criteria” of race seems to have been added by the healthcare facility where Smith went.

What’s interesting with the interaction between Smith and the healthcare worker, is that she admits that young, healthy people aren’t at significant risk from the China Virus and will likely be able to fight it off… which is what many of us in alternative media have been saying this entire time. This is precisely why some of us thought that the focus should be on treatment since the illness wouldn’t be going away anytime soon and that the universal mask mandates, restrictions, and especially the vaccine mandates are so asinine.

She then says that if Smith was 65 or had a pre-existing medical condition, he would qualify, but he would also qualify simply if he was black or Hispanic because of the criteria they use to determine who gets the antibody treatment.

He posted a video of the incident for the skeptics out there:

Smith posted several tweets about his experience and called it “F**king insane.”

Despite posting the video, Smith had pushback that it was only his race that caused him to be denied treatment. One Twitter user accused him of exaggerating the claim and that he was denied the antibody treatment because of his are and said that the real reason was that he wasn’t at serious risk for complications from the ‘Rona. Kudos to the person for not buying into the 24/7 fear porn on CNN and using a few brain cells, but… the whole point is that the criteria indicate that an equally healthy black or Hispanic person the same age as Smith would have received the treatment because their race would make them “high risk” despite their actual physical condition.

Smith appears to be right.

Dave Reilly, independent journalist and former Republican candidate called the Texas hotline and confirmed that race is one of the criteria used — not just severity of illness.

When the call was answered, Reilly asked, “Is it true that you’re not giving monoclonal antibody infusions to white people?”

At first, the hotline staff member denied it saying, “No, that’s not true at all.”

When Reilly pressed, asking, “Right. So, a friend of mine, was down there trying to get a monoclonal antibody infusion and he was refused because he was not Hispanic or African American. They told him that they were only serving –”

The staffer admitted that race is a consideration, “Well, there’s — okay, so there’s eligibility criterias that we go by, and African American and Hispanic are high-risk ethnicity groups, so that would be a qualifier, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t give it to white people. So, it’s for — we’re prioritizing more vulnerable populations, so people who have an underlying medical condition — anyone who has an underlying can get it. But along with that, people with a BMI of 25 or higher, people who are 65 years of age or up, or high-risk ethnicity groups can get it.”

Reilly asked, “So if you are a healthy, in-shape, Caucasian, and you show up, you are not gonna get an infusion?”

“Based on the criteria that we go by right now, that is correct,” confirmed the hotline employee.

This response implies that a young, healthy black or Hispanic person would get the treatment according to their criteria.

One of Smith’s followers found the posted list of “criteria” that is used. On the list is “High-Risk Ethnicity Groups (LatinX or Black)” and checking off just one item on the list is enough to qualify.

This sort of thing is “equity” in action — you deny some things for one group of people based on racial outcomes and give it to other people for the same reason, while completely ignoring individual situations.

According to all the neo-racist “anti-racism”/CRT activists in 2021, your melanin level is a visual symbol of your virtue regardless of the “content of your character” and you will be treated accordingly. It’s shameful.

Meanwhile, Smith noted that (so far) the unvaccinated don’t fare as well once they contract COVID as the vaccinated, but they’re not being given special treatment.

If it was really about public health, we’d be treating people equally and assessing individual risk when administering treatment rather than using race as a determiner.

This is precisely the sort of thing that those on the left that are obsessed with race want, however.

If this sort of thing continues, it’s going to destroy the country.
