    Ind. ruling halts caregiver choices based on race

    Ind. ruling halts caregiver choices based on race - U.S. news - Life - msnbc.com

    craziness. and people think we've overcome racism.

    INDIANAPOLIS Certified nursing assistant Brenda Chaney was on duty in an Indiana nursing home one day when she discovered a patient lying on the floor, unable to stand.

    But Chaney couldn't help the woman up. She had to search for a white aide because the woman had left instructions that she did not want any black caregivers. And the nursing home insisted it was legally bound to honor the request.
    had i been chaney, i would have been tempted to stand over the woman and just look at her.

    Nobody denies that racism exist, and will ALWAYS exist, on a personal level.

    I'd have just left her on the floor and stood over her .... she could go crawl to the nearest white person if she didn't like my skin colour and didn't want my help because of it ....
