Thank you for educating the public on the disparity between healthcare professionals & the populaltions they serve. The latesst Census figures cannot deny the fact the ethnic diversity has & is projected to continue to increase. Fact in cultural competence is that quality outcomes result when cultures match up or at least can become sensitive & educated to the cultures served. I know this hurts feelings, but that is why we have health disparities. This is by no mean affirmative action. I suggest those who are offended get educated & updated in health disparities and cultural competency. Thank you again for this informative article!

1)Diversity(the artist formerly known as affirmative action) is racial discrimination. 2)The US Supreme Court is about to outlaw this form of affirmative action/diversity because it unconstitutional(read the 14th amendment.) 3) There is already a massive pool of qualified individuals of all races waiting to get into nursing school but no space is available. 4)The color of the skin of the nurse caring for a patient has zero bearing on the recovery from illness. 5) How is it possible to write one article so overloaded with false assumptions, non sequitur , and just plain fantasy parading as fact?
