"Are you an M.D.?" Even after showing her medical license, this black doctor had her credentials repeatedly questioned while helping a sick passenger on a flight.

    You dont have to explain yourself to others who are incapable of understanding in that moment in time.

    Only an idiot would pretend to be a doctor when they are not. Too much liability if somehting goes wrong. Anytime someone tells me that are a doctor I beleive them. Have no reason to think otherwise.

    I agree with you 100%. It is time people stop this racial stupidity.We all bleed the same color. I am sorry for your experience on that plane.Probably at least 1/2 of people in the medical field are of color and born in other countries.Quite honestly, I am thankful for anybody that can help keep others healthy and alive.Thank you for all you do.

    This is disgusting and the state of our world today .. stop with all this racial crap , stop looking at the colour of skin and look at the person. We all feel , breath , think , love etc there's no room for this any more and that goes both ways . She is an educated lady , a doctor and by the sounds of it a very caring one , she never should come up against such ridiculous prejudice

    I think it’s high time people start see reality for what it is.bad as it might sound if having shown my license and am made to feel that way( different and incapable)then I would obviously withdraw.its just their fault if anything happens to the patient.we can’t keep complaining about a trend all our lives

    Sad. When a patient is need, we shouldn't question the race of a doctor. If they're a doctor, let them provide medical aid!

    Very rude flight attendants! I think that 2 flight attendants forgot their orientation and trainings with Delta. They should give proper sanctions for what they did. I believe 2 sanctions 1. For not applying and following rules of the Airlines and 2. Discrimination and Arrogance!

    im chronically sick. dont worry, i question every doctor not just the black ones bc they all seem to have forgotten how to actually be doctors unless a insurance rep or pharma rep is there to hold their hand.

    As long as Affirmative Action exists, and you black doctors don't do anything to repeal it, then I will indeed question your credentials.
