To serve on Louisiana’s state medical board, a person must meet certain standards, including residency, licensing, experience, and non-criminality.
They must also meet race requirements.
A person’s race has nothing to do with their ability to serve on a public board, whether medical or otherwise. In fact, the Constitution protects against these types of discriminatory policies. Louisiana isn’t alone. Across the country, race and even gender quotas are the norm.
Pacific Legal Foundation is fighting back.
