Danielle Droppers, a Regional Health Equity Coalition Program Manager, is grabbing headlines after she delayed a meeting with partner organizations on the stated grounds that "urgency is a white supremacy value."

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is a government organization that manages medical services and social welfare in Beaver State. OHA was in charge of organizing Oregon's vaccination effort and disseminating COVID-19 information during the epidemic, both crucial duties.

However, the agency's office for equality and inclusion tends to take its time while conducting government business. A meeting with partner organizations was really postponed by the office's program manager on the pretext that "urgency is a white supremacy value."

Danielle informed the community that a scheduled conversation between OHA officials and relevant members of the public would not take place as planned.

One Twitter user wrote, "Oregon government equity manager Danielle Droppers insults all minorities by proclaiming only whites have business acumen and drive. Hard to be more racist than a Leftist lunatic."
