Off the subject...Smiling-I really like that quote from Bill Cosby; I sent it to my boss....it is SO VERY TRUE!!!

I'm not going to comment any more on the race stuff. The originator of the thread is so very set in her opinion that all the logic in the world won't change it. She wants to live here, but hate us..oh well.

No , no one ever said she said that BUT it was heavily implied that her comments meant she HATED America as evidenced in many prior posts. I have been a part of MANY of these debates and discussions some face to face and I know and recognize when someone is being insulting. No one should ever openly invite another American to leave the country because they are displeased with SOME issues. What should have been encouraged or suggested is that she visit other countries or travel abraod. But as she later stated she has done ALL of that and still feels the way she does.

Thank you :)

Thank you

Please read and quote my entire statement rather than the points you think are salient to your point. Taking sentences out of context and quoting them is a key part of hyperbole. What I said was

"But hey, you are not forced to live here. If you find Americans so racist and distasteful, you are free to leave. Go find yourself a more enlightend, less racist country to live in. The Nursing shortage is supposed to be world wide. Travel and see the world! Once you've done that, come back and see if the USA is quite as racist as you think it is now."

Thank You.

Okay, at least we live in a country were we can talk about this kind of thing. Another thing, this doesn't apply to Nursing alone. I work in a casino that is less than 5 miles form a Navy Base. We have many Philippino's who work here. We have the same problem, I think it is mainly a problem of people who really don't know about a different culture. However, it doesn't help matters when you here a particular group of people speaking in a different language. It makes you wonder why it can't be said in English...:confused:

I agree with Sekar- you arent being forced to live here, if it is so bad, leave.

I was a nurse in the small community hospital.same here am a international nurse too.presently working with the philiphino nurses.i am in the same shoes.one of the philiphino nurse never treated me good.i am taking all of her abuse since one year now.even the white and the black nurses worked with me never treated me like that.

it was very sad this particular philiphino has that bad attitude.workplace all she does is boost her country hospital.and treating me like her slave.

and when she assign patient to me and the other philiphino she does the same way which is good for for her and the other nurse.

sorry about the typing and grammer mistakes!

i know that i'm not yet in the position to say this since i'm only a student nurse and being a student and a professional really means a great difference in between...

i am also afraid of racism and i'd rather prefer that everyone could work in harmony, but i know that it's like wishing for the crow to become white...

i was taught that as a nurse, one should be flexible and understanding...

racism is nasty, but, what the hell!! you didn't go on duty for the "race"... you're there to take care of sick people... give your services, time and effort to those who need it... if they don't like you... TO HELL!! they are not the ones who feed you or takes care of your personal "business...

as long as you do good for your fellow human being... what else matters? avoid those who don't do anything good for you...

long live nursing...!!

I just couldn't resist - had to drop in. This is an amazing discussion!

Comming from a former Soviet Union where freedom of speech meant you went straight to Gulag (as a lot of my relatives did, including my own father) I enjoy and respect having this wonderful opportunity of saying what I think and feel BUT I believe that any kind of freedom without responsibility turns into a nasty tool. What I'm trying to say here is - why can't we just say what we mean and MEAN what we say without offending each other.
