Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Healthcare and Racism

I found this interesting:

A doctor who considers the national health-care overhaul to be bad medicine for the country posted a sign on his office door telling patients who voted for President Barack Obama to seek care "elsewhere."

"I'm not turning anybody away — that would be unethical," Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama … seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your healthcare begin right now, not in four years."

He says he can't turn people away, but his sign basically says "fuck off if you voted for Obama." You know what, 95% of black voters voted for Obama, so I'm guessing very few of them will be seeing Jack Cassell.

Cassell might as well trade his white coat in for a different white article of clothing. Racists can try to be clever and cover up their racism, but they will be called out for it. This healthcare issue is all about race, never forget it.
