Important Message from Dr. Skinner
Dear Stanford Urology Community:
I think I speak for all of the faculty, staff and trainees in our department in expressing how deeply saddened we have been by again witnessing the death of a young black man at the hands of the police. This comes on the heels of indisputable data showing that the black community is being disproportionately affected by all aspects of the current pandemic, both medical and economic. The institutional racism that pervades our country is undeniable. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar today said in the LA Times “Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible – even if you’re choking on it – until you let the sun in.”
We commit to stand together with our African American community, to work to understand your pain, to condemn racial violence, to shine a light on institutional racism and strive to correct racial injustice.
