Morse, who is black, delivered a well planned speech in which she honored black and Puerto Rican women while demeaning women with lighter skin.
“We need to support birthing people through all aspects of their birthing experience – perhaps the most beautiful and personal gift we can share with birthing people as they navigate the groundbreaking life changing experience of creating life,” Morse wrote in a tweet.
“The urgency of this moment is clear,” she added. “Mortality rates of birthing people are too high, and babies born to Black and Puerto Rican mothers in this city are three times more likely to die in their first year of life than babies born to non-Hispanic White birthing people.”
This strange phrasing seems to be meant to mock white women while bolstering non-white women. Morse has not yet been penalized for her remarks because she is a non-white woman (and likely will never be).
If Michelle Morse had been white and sent a tweet that disparaged non-whites, I’m sure she would have been fired by now.
Morse received a barrage of reactions to her Twitter post from people who had witnessed what she had done and were not going to let her off the hook.
“Maybe I’m saying the quiet part out loud but it sounds like POC [people of color] women are mothers and white women are birthing people,” one person wrote.
“The entire woke era summarized in one tweet,” said another.
“Why are you so transphobic against black and Puerto Rican birthing people?” asked another sarcastically.
Morse has not commented to any of this as of this writing, and her bigoted tweet remains on Twitter. This merely goes to prove that posting blatant racism towards white people is apparently OK according to Twitter’s “community standards”
Keep in mind that anti-white racism is becoming more accepted in the workplace, not just in academia.
It’s all of a sudden fashionable to slam white folks whenever you have the chance. In the new “United” States, this is regarded as “progress.”
Morse has continued to tweet about other topics, oblivious to the issue. “Get the Good Stuff,” a program that doubles food stamp benefits for fruits, veggies, and beans, is one of her most recent messages to her fans.
The New York Daily News, to their credit, entirely disregarded the part of Morse’s post in which she referred to white women as “birthing humans.” In reporting on the city’s announcement, it conveniently skimmed over that tiny information.
To his credit, NYC Mayor Eric Adams is not a racist in the same way that Morse was, at least not in terms of the adjectives he has used to describe pregnant women. Adams believes that all newborns, whatever of skin color, live inside “the mother’s womb,” a term that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) currently considers “transphobic.”
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests using the term “uterus” instead of “womb” in its guide to language and abortion because ‘womb” is supposedly a “non-medical term that can be used to apply an emotion value to a human organ.”
“This so-called doctor is an idiot and a racist,” wrote someone at Just the News about Morse.
“Pretty racist,” wrote another. “Flip the script and a Republican of white would already be out of a job.”
