So is this an indictment of the poor qualifications and substandard work habits that Black doctors have?
Is this an indictment to how poorly Blacks maintain their personal health after being diagnosed?
"you would be well advised to seek treatment at a hospital that treats mostly white patients"
Hmmmmm....If you do, you better bring enough money to cover your bills. Apparently Real Americans don't want to.
There's always Canada.

You could seek treatment at a hospital that treats mostly black patients, but you'd need to keep your hands on your wallet.

This study says that medical staff care less about the outcome for minority people versus white people. Demanding patients may get better care. Expectations of good care probably makes the difference more than skin color.
Differences in cancer care is rampant with some unqualified docs wanting the million dollar patient to stay in their care.
