Mom Demands Son Only Be Seen By 'White Doctor' Without 'Brown Teeth'

By Mark Pygas

The healthcare systems of most industrialized countries would collapse without immigration. According to the Migration Policy Institute, 25 percent of doctors practicing in the United States are foreign born, and when you included nurses and other workers, that number is growing year after year. 

The situation is similar in Canada, so Hitesh Bhardwaj was shocked when he witnessed a mother demanding that her sick child only be seen by a "white doctor" who "doesn't have brown teeth" and "speaks English" at his local walk-in clinic in Mississauga, Canada, on Sunday. 

Bhardwaj recorded the incident, in which the woman yells at a receptionist several times over four minutes. The woman claims that her child is suffering from chest pains, but refuses to allow him to be seen by a doctor that isn't white. After staff inform her that no white doctors are currently available, she says "being white in this country I should just shoot myself."
