The statistics of unemployment were exaggerated, as were the rumors of foreclosures, mass evictions, and hunger riots. All those people starving? Crisis actors, probably. The "best-known work of propaganda," though, was that shameless pinko pamphlet called The Grapes Of Wrath (which gave its author a Pulitzer and a Nobel, no doubt arranged by reptilians). It worked, and now socialist brainwashing techniques are used to indoctrinate children all around the country into the ideology that this textbook hates: what actually happened in history.
Guide To Culturally Competent Health Care Is Full Of Varsity-Level Racism
The New Orleans Mascot
The other textbooks are in the minor league compared to the Babe Ruth of bad educational writing, Guide To Culturally Competent Health Care. A lawsuit by a former professor at the University Of Central Florida (who says she got fired for refusing to teach from it) cites several examples of the book's Archie Bunker-level ideas about race, all included to guide students in providing people with sufficiently competent/xenophobic care.
For instance, the book warns that African Americans tend to be "loud, high-keyed, animated, confrontational, and interpersonal." It's important for students to realize that, in the black community, "being overweight is seen as positive." It's as if the author's entire exposure to black people was through Tyler Perry fat-suit movies. The text goes on to say that "voodoo doctors" are "folk" healthcare practitioners for African American communities, presumably because the James Bond film Live And Let Die was a documentary, right down to the scene where a crime boss turned into a human balloon and exploded.
"Sorry, your insurance only covers head shrinking and curses -- not zombieism."
Once the hole has well and truly been dug, the authors continue digging into the depths of lunacy, writing that, "Because significant numbers of African Americans are poor and live in inner-cities, they tend to concentrate their efforts on day-to-day survival," as if the streets of America are rife with hunter-gatherer tribes.
But don't worry: Guide To Culturally Competent Health Care is comprehensive in its insanity, including a bunch of other ethnicities. Italian American families, for example, are in complete submission to the father of the house and make no decisions without his input. Not only have they drawn their conclusions on African Americans from 19th-century European colonizers, they've also extrapolated the Godfather films.
"Look out for nearby oranges; that means one of them's about to die."
In the only good piece of advice in the book, it is warned that Holocaust jokes are inappropriate in the company of Jewish patients, as are jokes that insinuate they are stingy. So, remember: Save those Holocaust jabs for all the other races, but if Jewish people are around, try to switch to something lighter, like a classy dead babies joke, perhaps. Wouldn't wanna come off as racist, after all.
