"I saw a doctor that was not white that did not help my kid"
A mother demanding that her child sees a “white doctor” has been caught on camera.
The incident occurred at a surgery in Mississauga, Toronto, Canada. A mother is seen in the video complaining that her child has chest pains and that a white doctor should see them.
“In the whole entire building there isn’t one white doctor?” the mother asks. “I want to see a white doctor. In the whole entire building there isn’t one white doctor?”
A member of staff replies, “There isn’t one available until 4.”
The mother then says, “Okay, so you’re telling me my kid has chest pains and has to sit here until four o clock? Can I see a doctor please that’s white? That doesn’t have brown teeth and who speaks English?”
“I saw a doctor that was not white that did not help my kid.”
“Oh my God. What type of horrible country do we live in? I want to see someone who doesn’t have brown teeth.”
“There’s nobody that’s Canadian? Nobody that’s born here?”
Onlookers are heard telling her to leave and go to a hospital. One woman confronts the mother and says, “your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor. You are extremely rude and racist.”
The mother then points to everyone in the waiting room and says, “You’re brown, you’re brown and you’re brown.”
She then claims she that everyone else is discriminating against her because of her own race. “You’re attacking me because I am white.”
Hitesh Bhardwaj who recorded the shocking incident told CBC news he “couldn’t believe” what he saw.
Mr Bhardwaj said, “I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
“The whole episode kept on repeating in my head, I was very upset. You know I can’t even define the feeling.”
