A man sitting at Mississauga, Ont., clinic got shocked when he heard a lady demanding ‘a white doctor’ who ‘speaks English’ and ‘doesn’t have brown teeth’ to treat her son.
Hitesh Bhardwaj recorded the whole video while he heard the woman ranting about a white doctor for the treatment. He got extremely upset after listening to her demand of a white doctor who spoke English for her son’s treatment.
The 4-minute video which Bhardwaj recorded shows a woman constantly demanding a white doctor for the treatment. The son had chest pains. When the doctors told her of the unavailability of a white doctor she said,
…being white in this country I should just shoot myself. I saw a doctor that was not white that did not help my kid. I would like to see a white doctor. You’re telling me there isn’t one white doctor in this whole entire building?
Some news outlets tried to trace the woman and get a statement in this regard but they failed in the endeavour. Bhardwaj told media that he started recording video as soon as the woman next to him asked the ranting woman that why she wanted a white doctor for the treatment.
This is bad, this is inappropriate and shouldn’t go unnoticed. – said Bhardwaj
Bhardwaj himself is an immigrant and in an interview with CBC News, he told that he was quite shocked and uncomfortable to watch the whole incident. He couldn’t believe that an incident like that actually happened in Canada.
He thinks that racism is resurfacing with time which is quite critical.
Several other people standing with the woman who demanded a white doctor confronted her for the racist demand. One of the women in the hospital told her that the son is clearly in more trouble than a chest pain because of her being a mother.
Later the woman blamed the people arguing with her as racists because she thought that they were attacking her merely for she was white.
The police were called for the disturbance in the clinic. According to the police, the matter got closed and her son was treated in the same clinic. Nobody pressed any charges against the woman as no charges of assault and threat were brought forward and this all ended in peace.
