BURLINGTON, N.C. – A nurse-midwife has lost her job after a controversial post about the Black Lives Matter movement on Facebook.

Caron Jones, according to her LinkedIn profile, was working for Kernodle Clinic West in Burlington since February 2012. Jones was a certified nurse-midwife and family nurse practitioner.

On Wednesday, June 24, she put a lengthy post on Facebook. Her post included, "All Lives Matter and BLM is just a political trick to upset a group of people to riot and terrorize!" and "I love black people but not their culture of crime, abuse, drugs, gangs, and it is time for them to take responsibility for building a life vs taking every community down!"

Jones said Black Lives Matter is a democratic ploy to get Black votes.

One day later, she was no longer listed on the Kernodle Clinic website. A DukeHealth practice, DukeHealth verified she is no longer an employee there.

Ami Goldstein, President of the N.C. Affiliate of American College of Nurse-Midwives, questions how Jones' ideology could have impacted her care.

"If you post something that's racist, no matter how much you say you are not racist, it will impact the care that you give," Goldstein says.

Goldstein was one of the many nurse-midwives in the state outraged by the post. She said she is reaching out to the Board of Nursing on how to take action on issues like this in the future.

"We know that there is currently a Black maternal mortality crisis. We know that there is a Black prenatal crisis. We know that we have an infant mortality and morbidity crisis...If we say nothing we are complicit and we need to stand up for all the people that we care for," Goldstein says.
