...those who wish to discuss it, should be allowed to, as long as there is no name calling going on. This topic can and should be discussed with open minds. Otherwise no one hears or listens to the other..

i don't care if my nurse (when i need one) is male,female or alittle of both....i don't care if they are a 'certian' color or a mixture of many. (insert photo of ellis island here and play 'god bless america' in the background)
i'm just thankful i am a nurse....proud as heck...i'm thankful that we have caring, comitted nurses......and i don't give a hoot what color, what race, what sex or what religion they are!!
i know, that's somewhat "ugly", but what can i say...racism is ugly.

frankly i would not care the color, creed, religious conviction, sexual orientation or age of the person caring for me as long as he/she is competent and caring. and if we cannot draw such people into the profession from our own country, demand will make it such that they will come from overseas....it is happening already. like i said, competence and caring....they are what matter to me. not the other "stuff".

I don't remember entering a race either.......but I have to, or do i check a certain box when asked to.........
actuallly I am probably a heinz 57 with a lil' genetic twist thrown in myself.........
and yes, I have also dealt and had discrimation directed my way, but not to the degree that I know many have.....but it does stay with you and does strike a cord, when you hear in bantered about so callously.......
which is not the case with this thread of recent.............
to ignore that discrimation doesn't occur, is not factual, but to know that the majority of nurses, health care workers, and even administrations do not participate in this is good to know.......
.....now i hope i am speaking a truth as to the last paragraph, or I am at least living in a positive thought.........
love to all,
