According to young turks, a man from Michigan filed a request at the hospital where his baby was born. In the video, the guy turns out to be a Nazi, and requests that no black nurses are allowed anywhere near his child at any cost. Needless to say, the hospital didn't know to handle this request, so they put up a sign saying, "No blacks allowed to take care of this baby." Needless to say, one of the nurses is suing the hospital over this. If you all want to know more, then please click on the links below:

What are your thoughts on this? And if you were running this hospital, and this Nazi made such a request of you, then how would YOU handle it? Please discuss.
The hospital was rightfully concerned for the safety of its staff and patients. What if the nut was prepared to shoot up the place if he saw a non-white doctor or nurse attending his infant? What the hospital should have done is have an honest conversation with the black staff so they could understand why the policy was in place, rather than just put up a note with no explanation.
No, what the hospital should have done was to tell the man that THEY, not the patient, would determine which nurses would be giving care. And at the first hint of trouble, ban him from the hospital.
The idiot needs to be banned period as a precautionary.
The hospital should have given the man his baby and asked him to leave.
No, you don't risk the baby's health because the father is an arse. You can't ask the father to leave for making a request either... no matter how stupid. If the father made a scene, THEN they can ask him to leave.
I'm sorry I forgot that the welfare of the baby comes before the rights of anyone else.
The man is obviously a racist (do you have laws on racial discrimination there?) and shouldn't be allowed to see the child under any circumstances.
I wonder what the mothers thoughts are?
First , I would have fired who ever put up the sign ! Second I would not have allowed the patient to use the hospital , instead of a pro-active policy against racism , the hospital delved right into the middle of it ! Shame on them !
If they need to protect the staff they do it by restricting his access to the child, or he can have the child transfer elsewhere. The child's access to whatever nurses are on duty should not be limited.
A good cut-away view of human specimens. A racist and a stupid business administrator.
Not much anyone can do about the racist, but the hospital administrator should be fired - and the nurse should win her suit. Not because she deserves "damages" - she doesn't, but to make the mistake painful enough for the management to learn a lesson.
Hurrah! Don't forget Saturday night's "Kumbaya campfire"
What the hospital should have done, was to inform the bigot, "Sorry, but racial discrimination is illegal nowadays, and if that's how you feel--there's the door...unless you have a time machine and care to travel back in time to the bad old days."
Trouble with them good old days for this guy is that many a white southerner plantation owners children had a black mammy that suckled the white baby's as well as their own. How would this have played with this bigot?
It's wierd to see who gets the benefits of doubt... and from whom.
And who refuses to tolerate stupidity...
No blacks allowed... it must've been a sight. I wonder how many cellphone pics???
No whites allowed... Go back to your country!
...just doesn't taste the same. I wonder how many chuckles this one got. Some are STILL chuckling.
I would have lauhed my ASS off, while bathing, feeding and burping the precious bundle of joy... let the chips fall where they may...
Ok, that's the third "girl" in the past hour. What gives?
I know we love eachother and all, but...
It's called a term of endearment Kiddo ! We have a connection after all , we are from different lifestyles yet we communicate don't we ?
By the way I listen to your writings and try to understand where you come from , we are all different in our upbringings , yet we learn far more by hearing what's being said behind the words ! Don't forget we love you here !
I like the idea of being loved. I love back!
My writings on this forum do come from a place of pain. It is unbelievable that racism and classicism are both still an issue. But I know too well.
My dealings with law enforcement has been bittersweet. Though I am not one to like crime, I have been a target; as well as a "stress-reliever" for a number of cops. No longer convictions on my police record, but they had me hemmed up for a while and some bitterness may have crept in.
Hubpages participants don't bother me... from the totally immature storm-away; to bannings for arguing with one who argues with me are all great, for now.
My Christian angle comes from a place of gratitude. Because of my great relationship with my God, I have been empowered to walk through many a fiery furnace to learn, and emerge without even the smell of smoke.
I had a MARVELOUS childhood with responsible adults my parents were married until my dad died. Not what we call "typical" today, and I feel blessed to be able to say.
My family did not speak on racial stuff as I was coming up, so I never got the chance for the inferiority complex. I just speak my mind. Based from my experiences. I have an ample amount of thoughts to share.
Don't worry about me, im probably the happiest, most grateful person on this sight, literally.
Sed- me , I think that if I saw a sign like that one , I would become mad enough to remove it and raise a stink ! You ?
I didn't click on the link, I only read the opening... Ill read it now and then comment.
I skimmed and missed the sign part. You're right... that's shocking that a modern day business would in any way participate in bigotry... and right out in the open too. That nurse should sue, more power to her. I personally would not have allowed the father in the hospital, claiming that I was uncomfortable with the possibility of him causing unrest which could put patients as well as staff in danger. I would imagine any court would understand if this man had gone to such lengths to discriminate.
Your right though , The baby comes first , they always should !
Yea ! What a world we live in where bigotry is just tolerated , or acted upon in such ways . We sure aint perfected humanity have we girl !
I think the hospital administrator lacked good decision making skills at the very least. Maybe he/she was just trying to keep the peace... maybe he even thought the father would be the one missing out on some of their best physicians. But he couldn't have possibly been thinking about what an incredible insult it was to the AA community and his own co-workers. Was the administrator male or female and what was his/her ethnicity?
I have to believe that God is shaking his head and sighing uncontrollably .!
I doubt there is a day that goes by that God does not cry over the sin of man.
Don't we know that ! Yes , and do we ever need him now , I do anyway .
That makes me happy girl ! We are all different and you know what , If we ALL listen 90% of the time and talk 10 % of the time , we learn !, I'm not afraid to say that I have learned the hard way almost always ! I grew up in utter poverty and yet , I feel others pain too ! It shames me to think of how little America seems to evolve in positive ways ! We could all do so much better , we could !
This whole thing is out of control. Now states are passing laws in which a counselor does not have to counsel a patient who "offends his or her conscience". If this is not declared unconstitutional, then the nurse or doctor eventually may have the right to refuse to attend a patient because of the color of skin, religion or lifestyle. Now the shoe is on the other foot.

Why is it OK to have "Black History Month" but not "White History Month"?It just seems like reverse discrimination to me. If everyone wants to be 'equal', why the double standard? This is not coming from a racist person, either. I'm just curious...I wish we could all just put...
