Racist Woman Caught on Camera Demanding a ‘White Doctor’ Treat Son at Clinic

By  | 

Maternal love is supposed to trump all else, but apparently it takes a backseat to racism for at least one shameless Canadian woman, who was caught on camera at an Ontario medical clinic loudly demanding a “white doctor” treat her son,  who is just standing there having chest pains and not being treated by anybody while his mother is making a scene and rejecting the clinic’s other licensed, qualified, educated doctors for not being white.

According to CBC News–which says it blurred the woman’s face to protect her kid’s identity–in front of a crowded waiting room at Rapid Access to Medical Specialists in Mississauga, Ontario, a young blonde woman in a yellow shirt goes on a four-minute racist rampage, shouting that her son was having chest pains and needed to see a white doctor.  A patient named Hitesh Bhardwaj started recording her, and she did not even seem to care that she was on video.

This is horrible. The woman would rather her kid stand there not seeing anybody than be treated by a non-white doctor. The video was taken around 12:30 p.m., and at the beginning a staff member at the clinic told the woman that all the doctors at the clinic at the time were people of color, and that a white pediatrician wouldn’t be on duty until 4 p.m. The woman snaps that she can’t wait several hours because her son is having chest pains.

“Can I see a doctor, please. That’s white,” she snaps.

Racism appears to have scrambled her brains so that she’d rather stand and scream than have a non-white person give her son medical attention.

At one point, all the people in the waiting room start saying, “Go to the hospital!” But the woman says she can’t go to the hospital because the doctors there are brown.

“Are you telling me there’s not one white doctor in this whole entire building?” she demands, and a female staff member says yes.

“Oh my God. Well, what’s the closest you have?” she says.

It sounds like the mother had previously seen a doctor, but was not happy because he was not white and “did not speak English.” He’s a licensed doctor practicing in Canada and clearly speaks English, but this ignorant jerk probably couldn’t deal with hearing an accent and started spewing racism at everyone on the staff and in the waiting room.

“He did not speak English. His teeth were brown. I do not need his help,” the woman says, about the doctor who was previously trying to help her son. When the staff member suggests the woman take her son to the hospital, she snaps:

“I’m not going there with all those (racial slur) doctors.”

At that point another woman confronts the yellow-shirted mother and says: “Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor. You are extremely rude and racist.”

The woman actually seems to believe she is being discriminated against because she is white, and at one point tries to tell the woman behind the counter that her son is “part not-white,” so he should get to see a doctor. (There were plenty of doctors there to see her kid. She seemed confused about the difference between “not being allowed to see a doctor because you’re white” and “demanding to see a white doctor and there are none in the building right now.”)

“My kid is part not-white, so can we get somebody to see him that at least speaks English?” she snapped.

That poor kid! It’s gross to think that a racist like this would be raising any kid at all.

Eventually the police were called, but no charges were brought forward for anybody. In the end, it sounds like one of the clinic doctors did treat the woman’s son, and the woman finally went away.
