When I watched this video of a woman demanding a “white doctor, one who doesn’t have brown teeth” I felt extreme sympathy and embarrassment for her son. She said he was experiencing ‘chest pains’. I imagine that the scene his mother caused his chest pain to fly off the charts.
What a sorry excuse for a parent and, I might add, she is someone who frightens me because her ignorance knows no boundaries. Her attitudes, in my opinion, are dangerous. I have no problem saying that outloud.
Instead of waste any more time on her, I want to tell you about one of my heroes.
He is a pediatric cardiac surgeon at CHEO, who happens to have brown skin. He’s a rock star in life and in surgery.
Dr. Maharajh arrived at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in 2001 and has since saved the lives of 100’s if not 1000’s of babies. He may be the most modest man you will ever meet. I’ve interviewed him a couple of times and humble doesn’t even begin to describe him.
