A group of healthcare professionals have sued Pfizer Inc for running a discriminatory fellowship program that excludes white and Asian applicants.
The group, Do No Harm, filed a complaint on September 12th in Manhattan federal court targeting the pharmaceutical giant’s Breakthrough Fellowship Program. The COVID-19 vaccine maker’s program was labeled “discriminatory on its face” by the group because only Blacks, Latinos, and Native Americans can apply.
Run out of New York, the fellowship program is part of the company’s broader, nine-year commitment to boost minority representation, aiming to enroll 100 fellows in the program by 2025. Participants receive a guaranteed two-year full-time job after graduating from college, fully-subsidized master’s degrees, and employment at Pfizer after completing the program.
In contrast, Do No Harm describes itself as a group seeking to advocate against “radical, divisive, and discriminatory ideology” in healthcare. “Racial discrimination demeans us,” and Pfizer’s “open exclusion of white and Asian-American applicants is illegal,” the complaint said, citing the opinions of two conservative Supreme Court justices, Clarence Thomas and the late Antonin Scalia.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
