Lawsuit: Race-based request sidelined Michigan nurse

The result of the outcome will certainly make some here smile but hey whatever helps you sleep at night I guess. Atleast the hospital admitted the entire scenario was unacceptable, even though plenty dismissed this as routine.

Totally wrong...again.

This is not a "happy" outcome, but it is an expected one. "Happy" would have been if somebody would have kicked the guy who made the request in the balls. As it is, this outcome is just a "that's how it goes" thing.

It's "routine" for hospitals to honor patient requests, even including some that aren't really all that logical. This particular request was atrocious, but they didn't honor it because they agreed with it.

As was said numerous times, the hospital didn't support this guy's views. It gave in to avoid trouble from him, which given that the setting is a neonatal intensive care unit and the guy in question sounds like he's probably not all there, this would be a wise choice.

Also at issue was the actual damages. Again, as was oft repeated, nobody lost pay, work time or anything else. All that happened was people being offended. I know a lot of folks think that's all that's needed to sue for millions. Legal standards are a little different.

If you can find a single post in here where anybody suggested that the guy in the middle of this was anything less than an utter jackass, by all means post it. Otherwise, quit trying to paint people as something they're not. Playing the "subtle race card" is just as ignorant as the blatant version.

That's a whole lot of justifying for something that is quite minuscule in your view.

What's the dollar amount on treating someone of different skin color as a second class citizen?

You can take my post however you like Mr. Scot, I call it how I see it.

What's the dollar amount for pissing off an unstable guy and getting someone hurt or killed?

And the way you "see it" says more about you than it does about me. As does the following me around in threads like a yapping puppy (obsessed much?)

If you can't debate well enough to debate on content and you have to resort to character jabs at people you have no clue about, it's pretty weak.

Evidence that he was a threat or lible to kill someone:

Uhhhhhhhh well

Oh no. I'm sure the hospital was just waiting around hoping for someone to make a request like this so they could unleash the racism they'd been keeping under wraps for so long :rolleyes:

Heck, they probably only hired black nurses in the first place in the hopes that someday they'd have the chance to discriminate against them.

I mean, obviously these people just had to be racist, right? And after all, there's plenty of prior evidence found to support those charges.

Isn't there? :unsure:

Once again you go back to the mind boggling racism by intimidation angle. This makes it totally acceptable am I right?

Exactly how is it that I "see it"? I'm assuming you are accusing me of race baiting which is laughable.

I think you are a smart guy, and seem nice. You need to look within yourself though. I'm sorry but I can't do it for you.

Nope. Just pointing out how silly your notions are.

What about any of this story sounds "acceptable" to you? And when has anyone suggested that it was?

It was a no-win situation for the hospital. They made what I and others would say was probably the best choice from a lousy set of options.

As far as "looking within myself" I already know myself quite well, and I'm pretty happy. But then I'm not the one following another poster around looking for chances to snipe, now am I?

None of it sounds acceptable to me. It sickens me that child will likely grow up being spoon fed bigotry. The cycle continues.

I'd rather not read through all these pages again.

There were plenty of excuses and justifications made to normalize and downplay this scenario here.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
