Since I relaunched my blog, I haven’t done a reaction post. Even in my previous blog, It was a pretty new segment that I enjoyed making. I reacted to the racist Chinese detergent as well as the racist makeup commercial. I also reacted on the death of a girl in Maryland. These types of blogs are for me to just rant away about what I saw or read.
Today as the title suggests I am going to be reacting to the video where a woman demands that her son be seen by a white doctor. I will first let you all see the video, and I will react and make comments about a certain part of the video.
*Be advised this video does contain materials that are offensive.*
0:00-0:08 : So right away the woman is demanding to see a white doctor for her son. She even asks “There isn’t a white doctor in this whole building” wait just hold up lady. The hospital/clinic doesn’t have a white doctor to see your child at this moment and why does the skin color of the doctor matter anyway?
0:08-0:18 : I feel like that’s one of the calmest nurses I have seen. I don’t think I would be able to stand her . She says “my son is having chest pains.”. If your son is having chest pains then why the hell does it matter what doctor sees him? So you would prefer to see your son collapse then let him see a POC doctor. I feel like by then the maternal instinct should have told you to let anyone help your son. At that point as a mother, you shouldn’t care if Barney came in. If Barney can do it? why do you care? The main goal of that hospital visit is to get her son some help. Can’t you put your racist ideologies away for an hour or two?
0:18-0:21: “That doesn’t have brown skin and speak English?” Wait is this women assuming that all people who aren’t white can’t speaks English? Well this lady is going to have one big of a wake up call when she finds out not all white people speak English.
0:21-0:36: A lot of people tell her to go to the hospital and I frankly thinks she will have another wake up call when she realizes not all people that work there are white.
0:36-1:01: Again I don’t understand what her demands are. She wants someone white or someone who speaks English? There are a lot of people who speak English.
1:06-1:27: So she dragged her poor son here, because they didn’t have a white doctor? And they had a kid die? And aren’t properly educated? I think you are the one who isn’t properly educated. All doctors practice and go to school for years.
1:27-1:30: If his chest is hurting so bad again why do you care about the race of the doctor!
1:30-1:33: Honey you live in a first world country where you can choose and pick hospitals like you want. Oh did I mention you can afford to get the medications? There so many places around the world where people don’t even have multiple hospitals near them like you do. Be grateful for what you have.
1:33-1:38: Wanting someone who speaks English and wanting someone who is white are two separate things! Also is she assuming all people who don’t speak English have brown teeth? The amount of bullshit in this video is killing me.
1:38-2:06: The sad part when you own son is embarrassed by you and doesn’t even want to stand next to you. I don’t know what you are teaching your son, but whatever you dish at him is what he will dish out later on in his life. You don’t want to get a call from the principal saying he refused to work with someone who wasn’t white.
2:39-2:43: Excuse me? Being white doesn’t mean ignorance. Everyone in there is tired of your shit. Just sit down and get the doctor you get! Your son could have fainted in that time! What you are going to tell them “Oh no! You can’t perform any type of CPR or help on my kid. You aren’t white!”
2:43-2:46: “My kid is not part white”? Why does that matter? How does that help your situation?
2:46-2:55: So now she wants someone Canadian. I just like to find out how she thinks the POC doctors communicate with their patients. Do you think they use sign language? They all speak English. Is your problem their accents? Well even English speakers have different accents depending on the region they live in. This lady doesn’t even know what she wants.
2:55-3:03: What does his teeth has to do with his ability to treat your son?!!
3:13:3:25: Praise all the Gods. Someone actually stood up to her.
3:34: “Why are you yelling at me?” Well they are yelling at you, because you’re annoying everyone there and wasting everyone’s time.
3:45-3:50: No just no. They aren’t attacking you because you’re white. They’re attacking you because you are racist and rude, and they are sick on your annoyance so they want you the get the fuck out or see one of the doctors available to treat your son.
I am more than baffled about what happened here. I don’t understand how someone can have a sick son, and just demand they get a white doctor. He needs a doctor in general. Why does the doctor have to be a certain race? Let me know what you guys thought of this video. Did you think she was racist? Or did you think what she did was acceptable?
