Boner (Round One) for June 21st, 2017

Boner Candidate #1: DON’T YOU HAVE ANY WHITE DOCTORS? I NEED TO SEE A WHITE DOCTOR.

A woman who demanded that a “white doctor” treat her son at a walk-in clinic in Mississauga, Ont., was not just an isolated case, but part of a bigger problem, according to the president-elect of the Ontario Medical Association. The incident at Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic was recorded on video and sent to CBC Toronto by a viewer. In the video, a woman asks clinic staff several times for a “white doctor” who “doesn’t have brown teeth” and “speaks English” to treat her son who she says has chest pains.

“A lot of physicians who are visible minorities or have accents that suggest that they’re immigrants, they face this.

This New Jersey high school senior used her yearbook photo to have the final word on her school’s dress code. Milford High School student Tori DiPaolo says she spent four years challenging the school’s dress code, which she claims is sexist. With graduation set for this week, DiPaolo wanted to continue the fight to the bitter end, according to Yahoo Style. Given the opportunity to choose a yearbook quote, DiPaolo decided she was going to make a statement. For the caption, which ran below a photo of her in the off-the-shoulder drape traditionally worn by senior girls, she wrote: “I’m sorry, did my shoulders distract you from reading this quote?”
