  1. So….. an Asia India, or Palestinian doctor are racist also and will not get any other colors under the rainbow? Why is it just being white being put under the scope? The Media is just a race baiting pile of $hit

  2. Because learning and having a license is a problem.they most often go for counseling than for psychology or social work. I was supervising a lot of African american in the mental health clinic. There were some studious and intelligent people who went through licensing, but most had a problem. However, when i had a person for an intake a black person would ask: may i have a black therapist? I always would say yes you will, but you have to tolerate my pale face for another forty minutes because i do intakes .in this place. I would only imagine what would happened if a white person would come to a black therapist and say: i would like to have a white therapist! Here you are accepting cultural differences, but in a white person case would scream racism. It seems that this revers racism is in fashion and accepted. Does it mean than that only people of similar culture could understand each other., or this indulgence allowed only for the black people who have considerably more mental problems than any other ethnic group?
