"A Michigan nurse claims she was banned from caring for a newborn child because of her skin color.
Tonya Battle is suing her employers at Hurley Medical Center, in Flint, after they ordered her not to look after the baby in the neonatal intensive care unit following a request from its father, WNEM reports.
The lawsuit states: "The father told the [nurse in charge] that he did not want and African Americans taking care of his baby."
It adds that, during the conversation with Battle's supervisor, the father rolled up his sleeve to reveal a tattoo of a Swastika.
The court documents say: "She [BATTLE]was shocked, offended and in disbelief that she was so egregiously discriminated against based on her race and re-assigned." [Source]
Why were you in "disbelief", Negro? You must be another one of these out of touch Negroes who really believed that there was going to be a post racial America after O made history by becoming America's first
You nurses are truly compassionate people; salt of the earth as far as I am concerned. But honestly, sometimes you have to let that human side win out a little bit.
Forget that little newborn Nazi baby and keep it popping. Life goes on. It would have been quite interesting if this nurse had some specialized skill set that could have saved the little crumb snatcher's life, but when they reassigned her it proved fatal to the infant.
"And when Battle, an employee since 1988, returned to work she saw a note in the patient's file that read: "No African American nurse to take care of baby."
The court documents add: "African American nurses [LIKE BATTLE]were not assigned to the baby for approximately the next month because of their race."
This story took place in Flint, Michigan. Do they even have white people in Flint?
How did the baby survive so long without Negro contact?
Speaking of survive, it looks like we will all be around a little longer after just missing being hit by a huge space rock the size of a football field. I don't know about the rest of you, but that was a little too close for comfort for the kid.
"It was the closest known flyby for a rock of its size, passing within 17,000 miles. That's closer than some satellites."
The next time we might not be so lucky.
