A viral video shows a Caucasian woman demanding that a White doctor treat her son. The incident took place at a Canadian medical facility where the mother insisted that she see a White doctor, not a brown one with an accent. 

“So you’re telling me that my kid has chest pains, he’s going to have to sit here until 4 o’clock? Can I see a doctor please that’s White, that doesn’t have brown teeth, that speaks English?” she said.

When the employee responded that that wasn’t possible, the woman got even angrier.

“You’re telling me there’s not one White doctor in this entire building? Well, what’s the closest that you have to speaking English?”

While the staff tried to be polite, people in the waiting room told the woman to go to another facility, and defended non-White doctors.

“Your child clearly has more issues with you being his mother than him needing to see a doctor. You are extremely rude and racist,” said one woman to her.

But the woman then said, “You’re brown. You’re all attacking me because I’m White.”

The video was taken by an immigrant man, Hitesh Bharadwaj, who was present at the time. Bhardwaj said that he wanted to take the video so as to encourage people to stand up to this kind of behaviour.

The police were called after the incident, but there were no criminal charges levied, and the matter was resolved.
