    Would you feel better if they claimed religious preference?

    Show me any proof that there is a policy where white medical professionals are discriminating against minorities, as you are saying?

    You’re confusing that with NRA Central.

    Yup, it means you’ll still get treatment unless they’re over crowded. Then it means you get a pick of more then 20 other hospitals, some of which are among the best in the USA. Don’t worry, only 1/4 of pop is black. You’ll find a great hospital that will bend the rules to serve whites.

    Outside of refusing treatment does that ever have an impact?

    Maybe their religion hates white people.

    Shrug. I hope y’all get to finally get to enjoy what you have done to others for so long and made excuses when confronted with your own ignorance.

    What was it you said, “And some people wonder why many white people , especially men are angry and getting angrier.” The hypocrisy is so thick I am surprised y’all are not drowning.

    Is that a serious question?

    If someone is having a major mental health issue and they are denied treatment because “we don’t serve your kind here” do you think that would have an impact?

    Maybe ask some of the fine folks in this thread freaking because they might be denied treatment and ask what kind of impact that is having on their psyche and this is one hospital — imagine if it was an entire state.

    You asked about religion I didn't follow that at all as the only relative consideration I know of when it comes to religion conflicting with medicine is when patients refuse care for themselves or their dependent.

    Medical professionals including therapists and EMT’s in numerous states can refuse care to anyone for any reason as long as they hold a “religious” preference against that individual.

    If people claiming religion can do this why shouldn’t anyone be able to? It is definitely against my religion to provide goods and services to individuals that would refuse to provide me goods and services.

    Seems like they are not liking the bed they have made.

    You couldn't provide evidence of your claim when asked.

    And it's cool that you're admitting that you're ok with blatant racism. Not just racism, but racism as policy.

    Not that anybody here will be surprised, but good to hear you admit it finally.

    Now please continue telling everybody how the right is racist when we're the only ones here saying it's wrong.

    Totally relevant. To claim non-whites are at some immense disadvantage (purely because they have brown skin) in the health sector, is an absurdity when it's likely that in the not too distant future - if not already - brown people will OWN the health sector.

    I posted two links actually.

    I am all out of give a f***s. Sorry

    Want me to care? (I know you don’t, y’all just enjoy being the victim) start having the same protest against these types of policy when they impact others instead of ignoring or outright cheering them. Until then I will just say I hope y’all get what you dish out ten fold.

    What does that have to do with minority patients somewhere else given preferential treatment ? 20% of our doctors and more for nurses now are foreign nationals, let alone minorities. It’s because of our lack of education in the locals. Different problem.
