It's called racism. Doctors treat white patients better than they treat black patients.

It's true. The doctors make them overeat and get obese.

Plus if a black woman is in the delivery room and a white woman comes in the black woman is wheeled out into the hallway.

It's all part of the masterplan.

My sister and I while pregnant, both experienced this at the hands of white nurses...

we were both married decided to have our babies in a mid town Detroit hospital....and these white chicks were beyond rediculous....

the black nurses would look the other way as though they didn't see the behavior.

we complained again and again about viciously hateful treatment.....and didn't know that we were complaining about the same retarded white nurses until weeks into our pregnancy....

I guess these wrentches were used to unmarried Bfs coming in there...

they resented seeing black men looking out for black women....

My husband was looking at them like these are some crazy women...

But with my 2nd baby,(at a different hospital) when they asked what I wanted my experience to be like....

my husband had been killed in a car accident and I was terrified that it would be the same way....

so I said, just to have some kind, fair people around to help me deliver my baby....

these were white nurses too and two tried to be fair....

I thank God for a father (and mother) who taught us to be fair, try to treat people the way you want to be treated....

I'm trying to teach my kids , even if you don't like a person ...try to be fair.

Black women are criticized for bad attitudes...it's covered up for white women and many of them have nastier behavior than black women.

Also it's well documented that days after my sister came home after having her baby...

she was rushed back to the hospital with a life threatening infection that had her hospitalized for 6 months, breathing thru a respirator, fighting for her life...

I believe they said that something had been left in her and caused the infection...

I always wondered whether those hateful nurses had something to do with it.

You're effeminate so let me teach you a lesson of life....

men usally compete with men

women usually compete with women

Why would WM be jealous of a black woman?

Why would WW be jealous of a black man?

Effeminate Black men like you, compete with black women, so you don't understand that concept.
