      Systemic racism is a form of racism that is embedded in the laws and policies of an institution, organization, or society. For a country like Canada, which was colonized by the Europeans and had its indigenous people oppressed beyond measure, racism is a very familiar concept in its history. And even though it has been outlawed, systemic racism continues to this day. A fraction of the black Canadians are descendants of the African slaves who were brought to and freed in Canada, and another fraction are descendants of the slaves who escaped from the United States. Since the beginning of the 21st century, there has been a large influx of immigrants into Canada from different countries. Immigrants come to Canada because it offers better opportunities, such as healthcare and education, but nearly 200 years later, they are still discriminated against by Canadian systems that claim to be welcoming to newcomers. In the mid-19th century, Canadian medical schools did not process students’ applications if they discovered they were black. They rejected their application on that premise alone, regardless of the student’s grades. And in 2016, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto — the highest ranked university in Canada — only ... Continue Reading »
