    Australian Nurses Must Announce Their White Privilege Before Treating Indigenous Patients

    Australian nurses and midwives are being forced to announce their white privilege before treating Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander patients a move which has been slammed as racist to its core.

    The term white privilege defines the unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people with white skin which are not enjoyed by people of colour or non-white backgrounds.
