    Are you saying that you're okay with the sister being dismissed the way she was?
    Are you saying that, as a sick/possibly dying airline passenger, you would be okay with them denying you the assistance of a doctor because she's not white?
    Are you saying that, as a doctor, you would be okay with that treatment?
    Also, from what I gathered, they didn't ask about physician id until much later in this scenario...and never asked the white male doctor at all. I've been on flights when medical assistance was needed...and never did they twenty question a doctor; they were more interested in getting assistance to the passenger in need. the formalities are taken care of after the emergency is dealt with.

    How is that a non-story?

    This is nonsense..........This is clearly a case of racial discrimination and also prejudice wrapped up in one. The fact they allowed the white male "doctor" or "physician" to proceed with medical assistance shows that in their minds he "looked" the part and his "word" is somehow "golden" over hers......The man almost died due to someone's engrained racial prejudice........also to note, the attendant apologized after figuring out she was in the wrong, so clearly she knew she had messed up. The young sister will be paid and should be paid. Delta airlines should also be boycotted.

    A lot of you new age millenial bougies who side with your massa and their nonsense will get the same wake up calls and exposures as them. In the age of social media, **** like this doesn't get swept under the rug, unless this was in 1970....no one would've known about this experience and racial discrimination..........

    Wow! Would that be me?
    Yes, you've posted links to inflight guidelines and federal regulations; we're all familiar with the. Is that your way of justifying the flight attendant's behavior? Dr. Cross did not disobey any direction she was given; she did not interfere with any inflight operations. She did not do anything that any normal person would consider questionable. Nor was she confronted by the distressed man's wife.
    - First, she was responding to cries for help...from the wife of the distressed man. She wasn't just volunteering unsolicited assistance.
    - Second, she was responding to the flight crew's query for a physician on board. When the one attendant told her "...oh no sweetie put ur hand down, we are looking for actual physicians or nurses or some type of medical personnel, we don't have time to talk to you."
    - Third, they asked any physician on board to press their button. When she went to press her button, I think the attendant realized her mistake; "Oh wow you're an actual physician?" Now, to cover her six, she wanted to question her credentials, etc.
    - Fourth, when the white male stepped forward, claiming to be a doctor, he was accepted without question...without showing credentials, without the third degree.

    Maybe you feel that that's acceptable behavior, I don't know. I'll just accept that this misinformed Mississippian might not know what he's talking about. After all..........

    The white doctor didn't present credentials either. He was believed because of his age and race. Other black doctors have had similar incidents. Thus the reason they are posting their pic.s
