Abstract

Whether the racial disparities in treatment decisions are caused by differences in income and education, socio-cultural factors, or failures by the medical profession, they are unjustifiable and must be eliminated. Not only do the disparities violate fundamental principles of fairness, justice, and medical ethics, they may be part of the reason for the poor quality of health of minorities in the United States.
