This was very powerful! It is a very important movement. I was brought to tears when Trip was asking how to deal with people not liking him for the color of his skin. I have talked to co-workers about how their children have those same problems with fellow students and they are only in grade school. So heart breaking. I hope the future can change with this movement.
Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to participate and learn more about the reality of barriers which exist for young black men who have an interest in medicine. The call for action is now. Thank you for bringing this to light. This documentary is well done and efforts must continue and grow. This will be shared.
Wonderful concept. If we are to balance black physicians with our population, which is a good idea, then medical schools should be admitting 7% black men and 7% black women to their classes. We need to fix med school admissions. When I was in USAF 1973-35, I had a very good friend who is a black physician. He stated his goal was to elevate the medical treatment of the local black community, but after USAF discharge, he opened his practice in the middle class white area of town instead. So, we need to change that as well, and help our black colleagues to elevate the quality of care among black communities. In our clinic, we serve all races, creeds, and colors, all the same. We need to get US citizens more comfortable with going to any physician, regardless of color. That requires a cultural change of establishing more trust in doctors, in general. All these things can, and hopefully will be fixed, but let's stop calling anything that needs changing a "crisis". That is too much hyperbole and tends to get unwanted and undeserved backlash. Let's solve the problems together, and stop the sensationalism attached to everything these days.
Shout out to my Highschool classmate Director Micah Autry for putting this incredible film together. I think this movement is the start of something huge and is going to help change the narrative in our young African American males. This is really positive and eye opening!
This was a much needed and so very well done documentary. I am moved by the honesty of the crisis and the call to action. I hope everyone who watches this movie does something about it. It isn't enough to just watch and review. You now know better, so go do better.
