Scientifically Correct Racism: Health Studies' Unintended Effects against Minority Groups
La Parra Casado, Daniel; Perez, Miguel Angel Mateo
Language and Intercultural Communication, v7 n2 p152-162 May 2007
The present paper analyses press releases, news reports and health plans to show how health communication functions in perpetuating dominant racist structures. The paper is mainly concerned with how normal science and health practices can become an instrument for justifying racism and reproducing it in our societies. The examples demonstrate that even when all forms of explicit racism are avoided, health communication can have identifiable racist consequences in people's lives. (Contains 1 table and 4 notes.)
