Racist Canadian Woman Demands Only ‘White Doctor’ Care for Her Child (Watch)

 

*Question: If you hated white people, and the nearest clinic to you ONLY had white doctors, and your kid had complained to you that he felt ill; would you put your hate aside in the best interest of your child?

You stew on that while I introduce you to a Canadian woman who obviously didn’t love her kid enough to let her hate go.

“Can I see a doctor please that’s white. Who doesn’t have brown teeth and who speaks English,” the white woman sitting in the reception area of a clinic in Ontario, Canada is heard saying to an employee around the :15 second mark in the video below. Her son sits beside her and looks to be playing a video game on some device.

You hear comments from people in the area who are obviously disgusted by her behavior calling out “unbelievable” and “go to the hospital” and “speak English is one thing, being white is another.” Someone also starts a sentence saying, “Does being white make him…” but trails off as the woman is obviously still talking and repeating herself as he heads towards the reception window and begins screaming at the workers.

When the 4-minute video, recorded by someone waiting in the clinic reception area was posted earlier this week, it went viral and the public was outraged. Continue reading

Want to Travel the World? International Platform for Peace Wants YOU!

 

*Peace. What a concept! Even in this Trump-inspired environment; where racism, sexism and antisemitism has increasingly become more a part of the norm than sporadic incidents that occur here and there; one thing has become unavoidably clear: if we ever hope to have peace in this country and the world at large, we, the ordinary people, have to put our extraordinary pants on and get busy. To this end, the International Platform for Peace may be worth looking into.

Hooray for the folks who get up every morning and turn on CNN. Kudos to those of you who feel free to offer your commentaries of disgust on social media. And bravo to those who freely soapbox at every opportunity about what’s wrong with this country and the world. Now is YOUR opportunity to be a part of DOING because obviously KNOWING is not enough.

Danny Glover and Friends Celebrate His 71st Birthday Championing ‘Police Reform Initiatives’ at Human Justice Awards Gala

 

*Each year friends of actor, activist and philanthropist, Danny Glover, get together at his home to celebrate him. This year, Glover chose to switch things up a bit. After working quietly, yet relentlessly, over the past few years alongside civil rights activist and legend, Harry Belafonte, and Dr. Divine Pryor, executive director and founder of the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions (CNUS) – an independent research, training, and Human Justice Advocacy think tank based in New York City, Glover wants to lend his celebrity to a cause near and dear to his heart: Human Justice: a concept coined by CNUS as the merger of Human Rights and Human Development.

Glover is no stranger to activism. The ‘Color Purple’ and ‘Lethal Weapon’ actor has been a visible force on the front lines of the world stage for decades; working with organizations such as the United Nations and UNICEF to transform lives and embolden the world population as it relates to human rights, economic and social justice, climate change and the environment, as well as education and the arts.

Together with friends and colleagues including actors Alfre Woodard (12 Years A Slave, Crooklyn), Carl Lumbly (Men of Honor, NCIS Los Angeles), Delroy Lindo ( Crooklyn, This Christmas), and Mike Ferrell (M*A*S*H) — Glover’s ‘Human Justice Celebrity Ambassador Circle’ – the actor’s 71st birthday will be the backdrop for the Human Justice Awards and Fundraiser to support the groundbreaking work of CNUS on NYPD projects such as the People’s Police Academy and police diversion for youth.

Glover and his ‘Ambassador Circle’ – a team of like-minded people using their celebrity and resources for positive change – aim to shift the paradigm from criminal justice to Human Justice and assist in the funding efforts of the organization as it sets forth its groundbreaking initiatives in police reform.
