There’s nothing funny about leaving Indigenous voices out of the pharmacare discussion

    This is a very racist article, a diatribe against “white” men.
    First, “white “ people are not white; they are various shades of pink to red.
    “Black” people are mostly various shades of brown, except for the Nilotic tribes of East Africa, where I worked as a doctor fifty eight years ago. The Acholi, the Karamajong, and the Iteso have much more melanin in their skin than the Bantu who live to their South.
    I worked and now live in an area with one of the highest indigenous populations in Canada.
    There are no women physicians here; they prefer to work in Vancouver and other urban centres.
    There are no indigenous or “black” doctors here.
