I hope you know that your blog will most likely prevent you from getting into any medical school. Why you ask? Because we aren't looking for people who engage in slut-shaming and ignorance. You posting that picture about the girls at UNCC is misguided. They were dancing in a performance about Disney princess, you do culture sensitivity a disservice by publicly shaming these women. You should be more cognizant of your future. We look for any reason to deny weak applicants.




I didn’t slut shame those girls. You can look back at all my post regarding the issue. However I did bring attention to problematic behavior. The attire being worn for a Disney Princess performance during Greek Week doesn’t erase the issue. The last time I watched Pocahontas I don’t recall her wearing war point on her face. This feeds into the constant desire to look cute or sexy it in Native attire. Making a mockery out of a culture should never be tolerated, especially by Greek organizations.

Wearing Native American attire that resembles things that are sacred to their culture makes that type of behavior inappropriate and disrespectful. Even if they did not do it with any intent it’s still disrespectful, from a Native Americans perspective. That’s what the NCNACHOE has taken notice to the issue.

As far as my career in medicine, I’m not sure how my actions towards supporting the one of the most underrepresented communities in the US would hinder me from medical school. Especially with the big push for cultural sensitivity and patient and family centered care, that revolves around being culturally aware. Any medical school that would overlook me for not turning a blind eye to blatant disrespect is one I wouldn’t want to attend.

Whoever this anon is she tried it. Girl bye, go teach your friends about cultural appropriation.

Folks are really trying me today with this photo. They must think I’m stupid.


Junius Stinney was the youngest person in America to be executed on death row in 1944 at age 14. He was quickly accused by the (white) police of ‘killing’ two little (white) girls with lack of evidence. His conviction and sentencing opened and closed in one day. There were no witnesses called and there was no transcript of the trial details and black people were not allowed inside the courtroom during that time.

[I always repost this because i don’t want anyone to forget about him!]
