Prejudice + Social Power + Legal and/or Medical Authority = Racism
Today, I was disrespected and belittled by a physician at the University of Louisville Neurology Practice. I have never been blatantly mistreated in such a manner, directly to my face. Seriously, most people, even those who do not like me, respect me because I treat humans with respect. The man spoke to me as though I did not understand English. He made up a memory issue for me after five minutes of conversation. The man then talked across me to speak directly to my daughter, about me!!! He actually asked me if I could read his cursive handwriting and told me to read his note back to him!!!
