Definitely doesn't surprise me. Nothing new, same old racism that has been going on for years. There's even a book published on it, Racism in Nursing. Black nurses have faced racism from both staff and patients for years. Black Registered Nurses are a target because their is still a mindset that black women in the medical field should be no more than CNA's/nurses's aides making beds, bathing, grooming, lifting and wiping behinds and cleaning up feces all day while making minimum wages. For years black women were barred from becoming professional nurses because it was a field reserved for white women. Nursing is a female dominated field and you will find a lot of these women focus more on gossip, jealousy, envy, prejudices and hatred, more than the common mission to promote health and wellness. Why wouldn't most of the staff condone it from patients with the same mindset? Good luck to this nurse who challenged this behavior. She's gonna need it.

After reading your post, I conclude that you must be related. Proves that there are simple-minded ignorant people in this world who still think they are know-it-alls.

Its sad that in 2013 you still have people who just cant seem to get over the past. This is not the 1920s anymore. Jim Crow has been loooong gone and you still got White people out there who just cant seem to accept that. They always want to complain about what were not doing but yet when we try or make it, theres always something else they try to critize us for. Just goes to show that White people will see us as inferior no matter WHAT we do. Even if were the President of the United States(oh wait....)

the unwarranted "rage" exhibited by ignorance on LINE! makes it easier to show what's really inside of an individual. When there is no "in your face" confrontation' then the "element of fear or "reprisal" is removed, allowing you see the "real deal".

Why so much "ugliness"? just because someone you DON'T KNOW express aspects of personal experience by "that individual" and...many of "us" African Americans in this RACIST COUNTRY...it is based on "fear" because these "haters" can only result to "violence in their words (online) and, sadly act out this "soul sickness" publically in any way "they" feel will"justify" their position of "hate"!...

In some "sick way" these "haters" feel by "acting out" with soul evil writing/speaking, it protects their "tenuous" position of superiority when they have "nothing" to "stand on"...you see, they have stood on the "backs of blacks" in their minds for so long, that position of authority has been "severly" threatened by the ignorance displayed on these blogs and else where.

President Obama has been a "flashlight" shining the "light of truth on Americas true ugliness; by the level of direspect of the man and the "office" of PRESIDENT!!! these soulsick individuals, they can be "clearly" seen!!their ugliness is apparent.

The tragedy is all of this hatred spewed forth will only "backfire" on the individuals who "curse" with their hearts; creating "sickness" that will eventually manifest in those pitiful frail bodies that (do not last forever) however, the poison will take it's toll...carry on
