She's white, dammit, and she wants to see a white doctor.

"Can I see a doctor please that's white, that doesn't have brown teeth, that speaks English?"



This one comes from our neighbors to the north... A woman at a Toronto-area clinic was caught on video demanding for a "white doctor" who "doesn't have brown teeth" and "speaks English" to treat her son.

Video shows woman demand a 'white doctor' treat son at Mississauga, Ont., clinic

The video was filmed on Sunday at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists walk-in clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, where the woman was awaiting treatment for her son, who was apparently experiencing chest pains.

Except she made clear that she wanted a very specific kind of care.

"So you're telling me that my kid has chest pains, he's going to have to sit here until 4 o'clock?" she asks a clinic employee. "Can I see a doctor please that's white, that doesn't have brown teeth, that speaks English?"



When she was informed that they didn't have an On-Call Caucasian Pediatrician, she escalated her tirade.

"I would like to see a white doctor," she continued. "You're telling me there isn't one white doctor in this whole entire building? Well, what's the closest that you have to speaking English?"

Alas, being white, dammit, apparently doesn't get you the snappy service you think you're entitled to.

"Being white in this country, I should just shoot myself. My kid is part not-white, so can we get somebody to see him that at least speaks English?"

The video was recorded by Hitesh Bhardwaj, who happens to be an immigrant himself, and was waiting for his own appointment when the woman started going off about about white doctors.

"I couldn't help but record the video," Bhardwaj told CBC News. "This is bad, this is inappropriate and shouldn't go unnoticed." In other words, this shit was racist deserved to get put on blast.

Naturally, the video has gone viral and sparked the expected outrage throughout Canada (and beyond).

By the way, this is how you pass down hate. This kid says he's got chest pains, and his mom's main concern is the color of the doctor that's supposed to help him? Is this really where you want to make your racist stand? Man, tell me this poor kid isn't learning some evil, ignorant shit at home, straight outta momma's mouth.

You can hear another woman in the video berating the mother, basically summing it up: "Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor. You are extremely rude and racist."
