A CALL TO ACTION TO SCIENTISTS REGARDING RACE RELA...
Author Last Post
CHANGE STARTS WITH ME AND YOU: A CALL TO ACTION

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE CAPS STYLE WHICH MAY APPEAR OVER THE TOP BUT IT IS MEANT TO DRAW ATTENTION AND INSTILL A SENSE OF URGENCY.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL THE REVIEWERS OF SCIENTIFIC PAPERS TO RECOMMEND THE SYSTEMATIC REJECTION OF EACH AND EVERY ARTICLE MENTIONING OR USING THE CONCEPT OF RACE IN THE METHODOLOGY, ANALYSES AND CONCLUSIONS. IT IS A RACIST NOTION BY DEFINITION WHICH HAS NO OBJECTIVE OR SCIENTIFIC FOUNDATION, WHATSOEVER. I HAVE STARTED APPLYING THIS GUIDELINE TO MYSELF IN A RECENT REVIEW FOR THE JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH.

ALONG THIS LINE, WE MUST INDUCE A TRANSFORMATIVE PARADIGM SHIFT IN HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS IN OUR SOCIETIES AND SCIENTISTS HAVE A CRUCIAL ROLE TO PLAY.

THIS CAN BE THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY MAIN LEGACY IN YEARS AND HOPEFULLY AN ENDURING ONE GOING FORWARD. RECENT EVENTS GIVE US A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT. LET US NOT MISS IT, TOO MUCH IS AT STAKE.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO YOUR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES. THANK YOU.
