A Woman In Toronto Demanded Her Son Be Treated By A White Doctor

Your daily dose of racism has been brought to you by our good neighbors in Canada.

A white woman in Toronto was caught on camera demanding that her son who was experiencing chest pains only be treated by a white doctor.

As a female employee tried to explain there were other doctors on hand to help, the woman became loud, irate and questioned if she "could see a doctor's that's white that doesn't have brown teeth and speaks English?"

Realizing that the mom was sticking to her obvious racist guns, the employee said a white doctor will be on hand later that afternoon, which only angered her more and prompted her to leave.

It didn't take long for the Internet to catch wind of the video. Singer Omarion, who recently put his spin on the Earth, Wind and Fire classic "Reasons" spoke on systemic racism and said the type of behavior only takes place when one feels "entitled."
