Asian Female Doctor Offended Because White Nationalists Refuse to be Treated by Her

A free market medical care system would work very simply: You want to see a doctor, you pick whomever you want.

It would be perfectly rational for any white person to prefer a white doctor, just as it would be rational for an Asian to pick an Asian, a black a black, and so forth.

But for many in our current system, you’re assigned a particular doctor. For example, I’m assigned to a Mexican female doctor. There’s no way I’m seeing her. I ignore messages from her office to come in for a checkup, blah, blah, blah. It’s my little way of sabotaging the System.

Dr. Esther Choo is an Asian-American emergency room physician who has practiced medicine for more than a decade. Yet, she says, a few times a year, a patient will refuse to let her treat them. Solely because of her race.

Choo, who works in Oregon, first shared her experience of dealing with racist patients who shun her care in a viral Twitter thread last Sunday.

“The conversation usually goes like this. Me: ‘I understand your viewpoint. I trained at elite institutions & have been practicing for 15 years. You are welcome to refuse care under my hands, but I feel confident that I am the most qualified to care for you. Especially since the alternative is an intern.’ And they invariably pick the intern, as long as they are white. Or they leave,” she wrote in successive tweets.

“I used to cycle through disbelief, shame, anger. Now I just show compassion and move on,” she added.

Choo’s tweets, in which she noted that there were “a lot of white nationalists in Oregon,” came a day after a counterprotester was killed following a violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

And Choo’s experience of intolerance is not unique in the medical community, she told CNN’s Christi Paul on Saturday.

“What I’m hearing from my colleagues is that this is a daily occurrence for many of them, at least experiences of prejudice. The patient who outright refuses care is less common, but I definitely heard from a lot of people this week that they have also had that exact same experience,” she said.

Patient prejudice towards doctors is now so common that many medical professionals “consider it a routine part of our jobs,” Choo emphasized.

“Maybe it’s that they’re from another country or because of their religious beliefs or their sexual orientation or their gender. But I’m hearing it from a lot of physicians that this is not unusual,” she described.

Asked by Paul whether she had ever been able to change a patient’s mind after they initially refused treatment from her, Choo said that it was rare.

“A few times I’ve been able to talk patients into receiving care from me. Or we can negotiate some sort of compromise where they will be seen by maybe a resident physician who is white, and I’m still guiding care, but I don’t actually enter the room,” she said.

“Usually you cannot. I’ve found in my experience that you cannot talk people out of their ideology,” she added.

This piece basically says that if you’re not willing to set aside your natural preferences, which harm no one, then you’re a racist.

Don’t buy it. It just means you’re normal. Just like women will usually prefer a woman doctor and men a male doctor. Normal.

Detroit Doctor Charged with Female Genital Mutilation on Girls as Young as Seven

DR. JUWANA NAGARWALA. LOOKS LIKE A MAN.

When you import a third world people to populate your country, you get third world behavior. It won’t be long before Democrats push the idea that charging turd worlders with crimes like this is discrimination. After all, we have to be “inclusive.” Right?

Jumana Nagarwala, a doctor employed by the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Mich., was arrested Thursday and charged with the felony crime of female genital mutiliation (FGM) on minor girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old.

Female genital mutiliation is a practice performed in many Islamic countries but also in some African Christian and Animist groups. There are several forms of FGM: removal of the clitoris (clitoridectomy); removal of the clitoris and the labia minora (excision); sealing the vagina to a narrow opening (infibulation); other harmful procedures such as piercing, incising, and cauterizing of the ganital area.

“According to the [criminal] complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco in an April 12 statement. “The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country, and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”

“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch. “The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law.”

In the April 12 complaint for an arrest warrant, FBI Special Agent Kevin J. Swanson states that “some members of a particular religious and cultural community (hereafter ‘the Community’) are known to practice FGM on young girls in the Community as part of their religious and cultural practice.”

“[W]hen FGM is performed in the Community, varying amounts of a girl’s clitoris or clitoral hood, or prepuce, are removed by the person who is performing the cutting,” said Swanson. “According to some members of the Community who have spoken out against the practice, the purpose of this cutting is to suppress female sexuality in an attempt to reduce sexual pleasure and promiscuity.”

The FBI and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) recived information that Dr. Nagarwala was performing FGM, in the Eastern District of Michigan, on girls “who were about 7 years old at the time,” said Swanson, “at a medical clinic in Livonia, Michigan (‘Medical Clinic’).”

Dr. Nagarwala is employed by Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, the Detroit News confirmed, and she has been put on administrative leave. A spokesman for Henry Ford Health said the alleged mutilations did not occur in a Henry Ford facility and the health system does not support such practices.

The FBI obtained a court order to review Dr. Nagarwala’s phone records and discovered a series a calls between the doctor’s phone and a phone in Minnesota. The “Minnesota number was associated with a Minnesota family that had a daughter who had just turned 7 years old (Minnesota Victim One, or MN-V-1). The Minnesota family was part of the Community in Minnesota.”

On Feb. 3, 2017, the Minnesota telephone number “contacted a tower in Farmington Hills, Michigan, near multiple hotels,” said Swanson. Farmington Hills has a very active Muslim community and hosted CAIR Michigan’s 15th annual banquet.

Investigation by the FBI subsequently discovered Victim One and a Victim Two, both 7-year-old girls, were staying at the same hotel with their parents in Farmington Hills. Victim One was interviewed by the FBI on April 10 and she said that she was taken to Detroit from Minnsota, along with Victim Two on a “special girls” trip. After arriving at the hotel, she said, they were taken to a doctor — identified as Dr. Nagarwala — for a procedure to “to get the germs out.”

The young girl, Victim One, according to Swanson, “said she took off her pants and underwear and laid on an examining table with her knees near her chest and her legs spread apart. MN-V-1 said that NAGARWALA ‘pinched’ her on the ‘place [where] she goes pee,’ and that she was given a pad to wear in her underwear. MN-V-1 said that she was told not to talk about the procedure.”

The FBI agent quoted in the story won’t name the “cultural” community. Is the doctor (an increasingly meaningless term) a Paki? Ethiopian? Give us all the facts, Mr. FBI man.
