Doctor Can't Operate

CyclistCyclist Posts: 23,346 AG

A father and his son are in a car accident. The father dies instantly, and the son is taken to the nearest hospital. The doctor comes in and exclaims "I can't operate on this boy."

"Why not?" the nurse asks.

"Because he's my son," the doctor responds.

How is this possible?

    How does a female doc cause a scandal worthy of discussion?

    99% of the people don't even consider that a female doctor is a possible answer. Even female doctors!

    Implicit bias

    Wow there is implicit bias in being human?  Next thing you'll tell us there is implicit prejudice!

    As a kid in the 80s this may have been a good brain teaser.... today it is not.  I believe we all know female doctors.

    Doogie is the one that broke stereotypes. Crushed the glass coffee table, too.

    Everyone knows female doctors unless you've been in a bomb shelter since the early 60s.

    Here's one in Atlanta that likes to rap while she does her thing:

    Hard to teach an old dog new tricks.  I would imagine gender discrepancy will get better as the baby boomers pass on.

    Another twist, the kid also could have been driving with a Catholic priest. I am sure the atheists would not consider that.

    Or they are a gay couple.  Or the guy driving was the **** donor, but the doctor raised him.

    when I worked in the hospital as a therapist I would often walk into the patients room with a black woman doctor. The patients would always talk to me first.  Some of them would continue to talk to me even after I explained she was the doctor. 

    and some of them would not let the doctor treat them … they preferred to wait on a white doctor … I'd say OK but a white doctor isn't on duty for three days and you'll probably die before then.  They still would deliberate whether or not to let her treat them. 

    this happened in rural Georgia …Klan Kountry.

    Did that happen 95% of the time? How many patients overall? 
       I’ll have to call BS on this one. It might have happened a couple of times, and you probably forgot the ones that did the same on the other side of the coin.
  • GardawgGardawg Posts: 7,661 Admiral
    about 25 % of the time.  

    Not once did anyone refuse to let a white doctor treat them. 

    Ever been to the mountains of North Georgia?

    When I was growing up there were several counties that had 0% black citizens.  They could work there and they could travel through there but as the saying went "Don't let the sun set on your black s in White County." 

    just because you don't like the narrative doesn't mean it's BS

    that they way it is outside your right wing bubble

    Look at the old stock photos trying to push a feeble narrative! Cute 
  • GardawgGardawg Posts: 7,661 Admiral
    the photos are representative of the attitudes of many of the white folk there

    your attempt to push a false narrative is what is feeble

    There are small minds everywhere and not just in the direction you are trying to promote.  One of the negative impacts of affirmative action was the idea that less-than-qualified candidates were graduated as doctors...  Policies you support have negative consequences.
