Masud would rather die than let a black nurse touch
his mangy a*s I imagine any nurse, if they had their preferences, would simple let his sorry carcass die and the maggots take over.

the hospital administration must have handled the situation with the nurse in a humiliating way. they should have simply told her to not bother with that particular baby instead of acting like they were trying to protect the parents racist interest.

It's sad Hospital Admin wanted the easy way out catering to a racist
the customer,in this case, the patient is not always right,Hospital admin should have told the racist to take a hike.

If you don't want the services non-whites, don't go to a public facility. There are home births, racist mid-wives, etc., that this couple could have used. Or as one poster stated, have her cubs at home or at a vet's office. Simple.....

I agree because it is really a form of child abuse. I am just appalled that a hospital would actually support these racist goons in their prejudice.

What that hospital did with that African American nurse was wrong.

That hospital definitely did error. That is why the hospital had to pay out money to Tonya Battle.

What you are advocating for looks good on the surface. But (With all due respect), it is going down a very slippery slope. It would set a very bad precedent.

It violates Americans freedom of speech.

It violates peoples rights in their respective homes.

Who would decide what is "racism"? Or not?

What may be considered racist to people who have left wing political beliefs. May not be considered racist to people who have Right wing political beliefs.

What you are advocating for, deals with speech in peoples homes.

What you are advocating for, deals with the curtailment of peoples speech in their own homes.

Deals with peoples "thoughts" in their respective homes.

It is going down a very slippery slope. Setting a very bad precedent.

What you are advocating for, is akin to what a dicatorship might do.

The United States is not a dictatorship.

Huh ----

Who would be deciding what constitutes "racism" in a household?

The people who are deciding which parent(s) are preaching racism, there could be political overtones involved.

What could end up happening, is that politically left wing African American leaders or activists could get their children taken away.

I point this out, because what you are advocating for looks good on the surface. But, in operation, it is going down a very slippery slope. It would set a VERY bad precedent.

It is violating freedom of speech in the United States.

It is violating peoples rights in their respective homes.

The government taking away peoples children because of what their parents say.---- That is WAY too drastic.

That is akin to what a dictatorship would do.

The United States is not a dictatorship.

Not really. The freedom of speech is not valid in all areas or circumstances. You can't yell falsely yell fire in a public establishment causing panic nor can you make threats or falsely declared some place will be bombed. Children can't even get away with it without facing charges. Teaching your children racism when he/she has to live in the world among many different races of people, should be viewed as form of child abuse.

People can't just do anything just because they are in their homes. And if the speech is damaging to the young minds of children it should be against the law whether it's being taught in their homes or not.

Your 3 points here, you are absolutely correct.

You said "Teaching your children racism when he/she has to live in the world among many different races of people, should be viewed as form of child abuse".---

Well, if the United States federal government would attempt to make a law regarding this, this would be very problematic.

This is why.---- It deals with freedom of speech. It deals with "thought".

Most of all, this entails with freedom of speech & freedom of thought in peoples homes.

Capree ---

You said "People can't just do anything just because they are in their homes".--- Correct.

But, with child neglect or physical child abuse.--- These are physical acts which are inflicted upon a child (Or upon children) in a home.

This is seen (Witnessed) directly by people in child protective services. This is an absolute.

You said "And if the speech is damaging to the young minds of children it should be against the law whether it's being taught in their homes or not".----

Well, this is why this is very problematic.----

How would this be constituted in the United States?

Who would constitute this?

If this would be implemented, would ideology & politics come into play?

True.

Yes, there are laws on the books which pertain to Americans not being able to yell fire in a public establishment. Laws on the books which pertain to people not being able to cause panic, not being able to make threats or to declare that a place will be bombed.

But, the federal government attempting to implement a law such as what the poster "Huh" advocated.----- That would be VERY problematic.

Because it deals with speech.

It deals with "thought".

How would "racism" be constituted?

Who would be constituting what racism is?
