    A former GOP Senate candidate was called out as a "racist" after she disparaged a group of Black medical students on social media.

    Lauren Witze , who lost her 2020 bid for a Senate seat in Delaware, reshared a video on X, formerly Twitter, of dozens of medical students of color at a conference in New Orleans.

    "POV: When the future of medicine looks like you," the original video was captioned, showing a Black medical student panning to the large group of his peers.

    In her reshare of the video, Witze suggested the group of Black doctors were on their way to becoming "medical malpractice bailouts."

    The former Senate candidate was blasted in the comment section of her tweet as a "racist."

    "State with the highest percent of malpractice per capita is California, which not only lowest percent of Black people of the 5 most populated states, Cali also doesn’t do Affirmative Action in college admissions. So no, not Black doctors. Sorry to ruin yall party in the comments," one X user pointed out.

    "Why are you allowed to be openly racist?" another questioned.

    The tweet from Weitz, a known right-wing activist, comes amid statements she's made against DEI.

    "Straight, White men are the only workers in America who don’t have any real rights and can’t sue for frivolous instances. Hire accordingly!" she previously wrote on X.

    "DEI strikes again. A Boeing 737-800 airplane SWA3695 had to make an emergency landing after the plane began to FALL APART! You can’t tell me a thorough and proper inspection was done before take off," Weitz tweeted earlier this month.
