Tamika Cross

Delta airlines defended a flight attendant accused of racial discrimination during an in-flight medical emergency.

Dr. Tamika Cross, an OBGYN resident, accused a flight attendant of discrimination because the attendant refused to believe Cross was a doctor.

Cross, 28, is the chief resident at Harris Health Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital in Houston, Texas -- which means she is still in training.

In her Facebook post, Cross explained that a crew member called for a physician when a male passenger lost consciousness during a flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Cross said she volunteered to help, but the flight attended told her she needed a "real" physician.

“She said to me, ‘Oh no, sweetie, put your 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," Cross wrote.

Cross said the flight attendant began “bombarding me with questions” when she told her that she was a doctor. But Cross did not produce any credentials to prove she had a medical background.

Eventually, a white male stepped forward and announced he was a doctor.

“She says to me, ‘Thanks for your help, but he can help us, and he has his credentials," Cross wrote. “(Mind you he hasn't shown anything to her. Just showed up and fit the 'description of a doctor') I stay seated. Mind blown. Blood boiling.”

Later, the flight attendant apologized to Cross for the misunderstanding and offered her SkyMiles.

“I kindly refused,” Cross said. “This is going higher than her. I don't want SkyMiles in exchange for blatant discrimination.”

A message posted on the Delta website, stated that three passengers identified themselves as doctors but only one "was able to produce documentation of medical training."

Delta stated the flight attendant followed proper protocol by requesting documentation.

Some Facebook users accused Cross of being an angry black woman with a superiority complex who made the in-flight emergency all about her.

    I guess they never heard of the Good Samaritan Law. She could have helped, creditials or not. She obviously had the education, but they were just being dickheads.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Training or not.. What people need to understand when you are called to heal you do it.... And this is what this woman did... I'm sorry resident or not... If I'm in distress and even if you are training for it.. Help me... Judgements will have ya azz laying in a damn box six feet under all because you think a person isn't qualified ... This is embarrassing to company imo .... Smh

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    This is about as bad as the Key Bank Story when they didn't believe the sister's check was real because she worked for an Architectural firm...
    Boy I swear...in spite of what white folks think...we Build, we have medical and law degrees...AND take care of families......ALL AT THE SAME DAMN TIME.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Where is the part where you told @HiLiter DOWNSTAIRS...in another post...that they probably treated DR. CROSS...not Tamika...Dr. CROSS...like that bc of how she was damn DRESSED? Hmmm????
    If you gonna tell it you gotta TELL IT ALL (Usher. Whose birthday is today. Love him)

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And if ya wanna go there ... Some RN's and nurse practitioners know more than the dam doctor ... I know Sandra you should know this...

  • Incog-knee-gress

    "The flight attendant's attitude probably had something to do with the way the doctor was dressed. First impressions do mean a lot."

    Sounds like a CNA I know who went from wiping booties and changing bedpans to diagnosing folks based and the shape of their face???? Anyhoo, the Sista says the alabaster didn't wanna believe she was a doctor, I believe her??

  • Libra80sBaby

    Damn near cried when I got that phone caaaaaalllll

  • NegroDamus

    damn shame..hopefully when the white lady hits the ER she questions a black MD for their credentials and she dies waiting

  • PrettyBrown28

    Sigh...

  • 100milesperhour

    I'm guessing if a passenger becomes incapacitated on a flight, and staff allow some nut who isn't a doctor (or trained medically) to perform CPR , breaking every rib in person's body, they could be sued.

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’ 2 : Electric Boogaloo

    Umhm. She thinks just like them folks. Sad. I'm ashamed to have sexed her, allegedly?

  • Libra80sBaby

    How many Sky Miles was she offered? Might be good reparations for what she went thru

  • Liah

    Always the "Angry Black Woman"....SMH!!!

    I think I read they were offered but she declined.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Sky Miles do not equal years of hardwork in medical school. I woulda said fukk their miles as well.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Right, but how MANY?! So I can internally decide if she going overboard or not

  • hi-liter

    Show did Incog.

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo
  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    She in-training with a Dr. in front of her name. Speaking of which, you probably don't even have an up to date license.

  • Libra80sBaby

    But...the lady just didnt think she was a doctor...yes that is wrong. But is it REALLY worth all THIS is what I'm trying to determine.

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    Story after the break...this happened over in Washington, where I am not surprised where the racism is stewed to perfection. Whites love it there. And love to discredit blacks. My cousin lives over there married to a white guy and I feel sorry for what they go through.

  • Junkanoo

    Sad but not remotely surprising

  • Libra80sBaby

    Now had the patient DIED, I can see how this can be THIS sensationalized. But, RACE tensions high af so I "get it"

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I saw this elsewhere. There is no "defense" here. When you ask for a doctor in a time of crisis and someone presents themselves as a doctor, you don't have time to do a background check and read their CV to confirm what they are. Her race and/or gender were the reason the lowly flight attendant accused her of not being a doctor. That is unacceptable. A passenger could've lost their life because of some unqualified person's prejudices.

  • hi-liter

    They were surprised that a black women was an Architect and she was cashing big checks and it wasn't income tax time.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    ALSO, according to Dr. Cross the other doctor didn't produce credentials either.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Did they ask for her credentials when she was LATER asked to help?

    "Another "seasoned" white male approaches the row and says he is a physician as well. She says to me "thanks for your help but he can help us, and he has his credentials". (Mind you he hasn't shown anything to her. Just showed up and fit the "description of a doctor") I stay seated. Mind blown. Blood boiling. (Man is responding the his questions and is seemingly better now Thank God)

    Then this heifer has the nerve to ask for my input on what to do next about 10 mins later. I tell her we need vitals and blood sugar. She comes back to report to me a BP of 80/50 (super low, to my non medical peeps) and they can't find a glucometer. We continue down that pathway of medical work up, but the point is she needed my help and I continued to help despite the choice words I had saved up for her. The patient and his wife weren't the problem, they needed help and we were mid flight.

    She came and apologized to me several times and offering me skymiles. I kindly refused. This is going higher than her. I don't want skymiles in exchange for blatant discrimination. Whether this was race, age, gender discrimination, it's not right. She will not get away with this....and I will still get my skymiles...."

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    Right, as they are surprised when we pull up in a Benz or Beemer and it's not from Child support checks or a drug dealer boyfriend.

    My damn momma was a nurse for over 20 years before she had her stroke. The first thing you learn is you have to help when asked even if you see an accident if you are able you are to stop and help. If this happened the way she said she was totally disrespected. Where was the damn yt doctor when she first asked

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This type of mindset have many fawked up... On a title... This is why I laugh in social places when folks talk about how many damn degrees they have and can't think their way out of paper bag.... Oh I have a Masters etc ? I just sit there and stay silent .... A Master's and still lack common sense .... Hilarious ... Learned a lot working in that law office... Them folks thought they was the shyt ... Try was dumb as hell and could barely write an opinion to clients .... These so called titles... If you feel lead to help someone do it.... Do it... Smh

    Let one of these non-L.A. residents visit Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. It is filled with "student doctors" who are busting their asses to help bring people back from the brink of death and destruction. As much as I've personally witnessed the past nearly 7 years re: a health crisis, surgeries and hospitalizations, don't ever negate the significance of a medical resident. Ever.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    As part of code of conduct, nurses are indeed supposed to jump up and help.

    Professional responsibility, however, is another matter. The NMC code of conduct states that nurses have a duty to intervene in a crisis wherever it happened.

    ‘In an emergency in or outside the work setting, you have a professional duty to provide care. The care provided would be judged against what could reasonably be expected from someone with your knowledge, skills and abilities when placed in these particular circumstances,’ it said.

  • Michelle

    Honestly, when I read the story, I sided with the Flight Attendant and suspected something was missing in this story. The doctor failed to mention that a third doctor offered to assist (how convenient) and was ALSO denied because he didn't have proper documentation. The airline MUST make sure that someone IS actually a doctor. If someone says they are and that is proven false and as a direct result more damage is inflicted upon the ill passenger because they are not qualified, the airline sets itself up to be sued for millions in compensation. That's common sense. This says more about the doctor than the airline.

  • DroneRivers

    "Angry Black Woman" needs to disappear from our language right along with "black on black crime". It's a cheap deflection when they get caught being racist. She did nothing wrong but offer to help save a life and now we're assuming she has an attitude problem?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The part that got me was her sitting there "boiling" mad like her wittle feelings are more important than the stricken passenger. Then for her to take it to Facebook after the flight attendant had already apologized shows how irrational and self-centered she is. I wouldn't want her for a doctor.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    The person I'm referring to has a 'takeover' spirit. You can't tell them a thing. They want to enter into a new job or a new relationship and think they're going to take over. Nope. Most people want things left the way they are, with room for gradual improvements. That, and you can't tell them isht. It's not even about constructive criticism. They think they know-it-all, but they really are clueless when it comes to having common sense and general respect for others. That's a surefire way to find oneself assed out.

    Bff is a nurse and has been a LONG time. Comes from a long line of nurses. I cannot see her, her mother, her aunts, or her grandmother being like well okay. I tried to help. And then sitting back down and letting a man across the aisle die. I do not see it. I HAVE seen her go back into a club where they had just been shooting 10 minutes before, to see if anyone needed medical assistance. And I have seen her aunt circle back around to a car accident until EMS arrived. Many other instances over the past 30 years but you get my drift. They werent looking to see if anyone is white. Poor. Christian. They were looking to help sick people.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    How about a criminal ?

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    I hope ( not ) when you have a condition and surrounded by wt pple , you choose to meet your Allah .

  • sunni_daze

    But we talking about doctors. I know plenty of RNs not CNA, not nursing aids.

  • hi-liter

    They deserve help too. Most of us know people who have criminal records. I don't want my family member to die just because they have a record.

  • sunni_daze

    You don't have to relate. You can look that up.

  • MissHarlem

    The ignorance reminds me of a funny little story when I had to tell a rude yt patient professionally to sit the fck down. Looked at me in MY office and stated that she's positive I can't help her who is the higher up. I waved read her like a book and said I am the higher up. You owe the hospital two grand how are we setting up this arrangement for you. Had the nerve to be rocking every designer possible and bitching about two grand ?
    Moral of the story for you simple basic tricks is treat everyone with the same respect. Janitor ceo same thing.
    Y'all have a great weekend. Not all just my peeps ?

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    You remind me of an episod of Criminal Minds .
    Keep projecting , just don't act on it . Not even her Majesty can save you .

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yes, I am a RN. I treated everyone the same regardless of their race or ability to pay. No, I have not been back to the UK.

  • RespectSelf

    I don't think that they problem was her simply asking for documentation. I think that it was all the extra stuff that was being said. It is one thing to say hey we need for you to provide documentation... then to say put your hand down because we looking for "real" medical workers.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    I meant you are not only doing harm by not helping but it's criminal .
    I agree with you.

  • MissHarlem

    Cackles. Only post I been in and I can't.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Flight attendant asked for a doctor OR nurse. So we are talking about both...no? We could even be talking about EMS in this case. Which would qualify as "some sort of medical personnel"

    "A couple mins later he is unresponsive again and the flight attendant yells "call overhead for a physician on board". I raised my hand to grab her attention. She said to me "oh no sweetie put your 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"

  • sunni_daze

    I think she was more insulted and that's why she went the sm route. But, Delta just added insult to that injury by supporting the attendant and saying she followed protocol. Did the other person have documents to support he was a doctor, as they "said" we will never know.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    And who was talking about CNAs or nursing aids (aides) to start with?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The difference here is 2 other people volunteered to help the man while she was feeling sorry for herself. This chick isn't telling the whole story.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    I usually go by what I see and what I see is not pleasant 99% of the time . I still see kindness and humanity , I judge based on that .

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Tape was released? Were you there? Are there other passengers who are availabe to verify her story? What makes her story non-credible? And the flight attendant's story so VERY credible

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Some people train to be doctors so they can feel superior. It's called the god complex.

  • sunni_daze

    What help? The government is not going to help and eventually they will do them like they did the Black Panthers, jail or kill them.

  • sunni_daze

    And no one asked you reply. Your ass could have kept scrolling.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I take Delta's explanation that three people volunteered but only one had credentials.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Thank you for the reply .

  • hi-liter

    Ok, got ya.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's her side of the story. She sounds like a drama queen.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Sandra , the same thing happend to that news anchor ( brown woman ) and the camera man ( black guy ) . NBC Mf news !
    Cops were called on them because they looked brown with a white van .
    Ps : van had a huge NBC on it .
    Can we just admit to racism or are we gonna live in unicorn country ?

  • hi-liter

    Speaking at of the U.K., do you still have an accent?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Why. If you took time to research just a little bit... you will see that Delta? Has a LONG history of racial discrim. complaints. Passengers, employees. More than any other airline. Leads me to believe they are trying to keep their noses clean and cannot AFFORD any more litigation to fight these cases. If you further researched, you will see they also lose almost ALL of them. They keep this ish they gonna bankrupt themselves.

  • sunni_daze

    Good becasue reality is bleek and down right ugly.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. I sound like a mix between a Jamaican and a southerner.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    What's your type Sandra?
    My lesbo girls are all drama queens .

  • sunni_daze

    You are talking about NURSES! Your whole comment was baout nurses you know. And what they do.

  • sunni_daze

    She said doctor. Not nurse.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    First she probably brung it on herself the way she was dressed. Now you chalking her up to being just a plain ole drama queen. Do better Sandra. Take care.

  • hi-liter

    I think I was what the flight attendant said and how she said it. Telling someone to put their hands down, and calling them sweetie like she was special needs or something.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    What a loss ! Nothing on this earth is sexier than a British or Irish accent .

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Your Muslim hate comment towards Sahara got removed. Glad to see Sandra and/or moderators are on it. Told your ass YESTERDAY though that you needed a diversity class. Specifically, I need you to pay attention to the religious differences aspect.

  • SameoleJ

    Cross, 28, is the chief resident at Harris Health Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital in Houston, Texas — which means she is still in training.

    Yes, she is still in training......BUT the Chief Resident position is the single largest investment in leadership made by the Department of Medicine, and the chiefs serve as key leaders for the program. Chiefs are selected for their exceptional clinical and leadership skills.

    Getting that title is a big deal during your residency and in addition, she had to do general medicine and then took OBGYN as her specialty, so she was fully capable of assisting!!!

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Thank you ! That was ignorant .

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don't sound anything like her. lol

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Alright, Sahara! "It is a marathon, not a sprint."

    I just saw a video the other day of the recreation of the tortoise vs. the hare. The hare took off, stopped in the middle of the lane and the tortoise kept going until he crossed the finish line, winning the race. I'm just realizing there was a message for me in that. Slow and steady wins the race.

  • n1kk1a

    The Good Samaritan Law protects individuals from being sued.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    The lack of toleration here irritates the entire FAWK outta me.

  • SameoleJ

    A message posted on the Delta website, stated that three passengers identified themselves as doctors but only one “was able to produce documentation of medical training.”

    So if there are 3 physicians on a plane and my black azz falls ill and needs immediate assistance...if I am on Delta I am not getting it. Imma have to almost die before they will allow someone to help me? Oh, okay!!

  • Libra80sBaby

    Yes she was qualified. Yes it was wrong for the F.A. to THINK she was not. Did the passenger get medical assistance? Yes. Does this need to make national news? IMO...No

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Yes ma'am !!!!! I learned that kind of late in life .

  • n1kk1a

    Good Samaritan laws generally provide basic legal protection for those who assist a person who is injured or in danger. In essence, these laws protect the “Good Samaritan” from liability if unintended consequences result from their assistance.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    I wish I could like your comment a 1000 times . It's a lesson in life about everything .

  • SameoleJ

    IMO.......yes and in the doctor's opinion.....yes!! So national news it is.

  • Libra80sBaby

    THIS is the bigger story. However, Delta was doing what CORPORATIONS do....worry about THEIR own protection. If they allowed someone with no credentials to help this person and the person died....that leaves them open to all type chit. Delta was being.....Delta.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    English?

  • Libra80sBaby

    Whoomp! There it is. :)

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Put some respek on the CNS's , who do you think will change your diapers and bags in 2 years ?

  • SameoleJ

    Do you know how many times the doctors here don't have their card on them? Did she ask for her MDLicense number? This could have been asked and been on record if something went wrong.

    Also, not all physicians carry them when traveling because they fear losing them. I get calls for my doctor all the time for his MD number, DEA number, etc. cause he don't have it on him and don't remember it.

  • SameoleJ

    And what happens if the person dies and they find out there was a physician to assist and they were prevented from doing it?

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Yup ! Firefighters can administer "stuff" too but God forbid no one has their diploma on them .

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Exactly !!! Slap their asses with a juicy lawsuit in both cases.

  • SameoleJ

    I just said this......the one I support calls me for his medical information and I have his cards, not him. Shiat I keep track of his damn passport and when he is due for certification for his 3 surgery specialities!! But yeah, if I am dying make them go find their credentials.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    When an individual’s medical identification isn’t available, they’re instructed to ask questions such as where medical training was received or whether an individual has a business card or other documentation and ultimately to use their best judgment.

    ______________

    Basically Delta allows their FLIGHT attendants...to judge whether someone is QUALIFIED to administer help. Mind you these folks can get a job with no pretty much anything but a GED/diploma and a clean record.

  • Tammie Reed

    And folks wonder why more people don't step up and help when things like this happen! It's just so much to be involved nowadays! And especially with social media. Dr. or not, I still wouldn't have posted this incident on social media(maybe amongst close friends & family) now look at her all over the internet! #Youdamnifyoudodamnifyoudont

  • Libra80sBaby

    Fuked up...but Airline's fault.

  • SameoleJ

    Then they could have pulled her up too, if they allowed all of that.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    We had a PI (primary investigator ie the doctor running xyz clinical trial) in an audit last week who flew to Austin with no creds. The FDA auditor was bascially like dude...you KNOW better but we gonna let you slide. THE EFF-DEE-AYE.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    I think very few know this info . You got it !

  • SameoleJ

    She is an OBGYN resident, which means she did general medicine and is now going for her specialty. All of the residents here are MD's and are in training for their specialties- Internal Medicine, Cardiology, etc. The RN's are not able to do what they do and the PA's are above the RN's, but under residents and fellows.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So because she was a black female you automatically assume that she was looked like a thot?

    I guess since you worked in the nut house you looked like a crazy person off duty.

  • SameoleJ

    And one of the reasons they don't worry is because either they have someone who usually sends their credentials ahead of time (which is what I do) and/or it can be verified online.

  • TheRealLee

    First, Dr. Cross is an MD. End of discussion. That she is doing her residency in Obstetrics, she is still a full fledge bonafide 100% physician. Second, if the distressed passenger was pregnant and going into labor and none of the other physicians who came forward were OB/GYN, the only one qualified to assist would have been Dr. Cross. Additionally, if this birth had a bad outcome, Delta would just told its lawyers to write a check to the family, a big one. Had Dr. Cross made a scene to help, she would have been arrested by the flight marshall. Having said all that, with people faking being this or that, physicians should travel with an ID and Good Samaritan laws apply but not sure about that inflight.

  • Lisa daniels

    Doctos are always ready to send pregnant women home
    There is a good movie that I saw at redbox a few years back, about a woman who was having a difficult pregnancy and everytime she went to see her doctor, he would send her home and she would talk to the nurse and the nurse would say she was having the woman needed help and the doctor would dismiss both of them. Said they were drama queens. Long story short, she had a rare condition and almost died while giving birth and the doctor was fired. The woman's condition would not have gotten that bad if the doctor would have listen to the woman and the doctor's complaints.

  • Zizzle

    Cross, 28, is the chief resident at Harris Health Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital in Houston, Texas — which means she is still in training.

    And that she's a doctor, a distinction you were unable to achieve which is why you became a paid for conservative blogger.

    Residency (medicine) Residency is a stage of graduate medical training. A resident or house officer is a physician (one who holds the degree of M.D., D.O., or MBBS, MBChB, or BMed) who practices medicine usually in a hospital or clinic under the direct or indirect supervision of an attending physician.

  • Zizzle

    Some people constantly refer back to their high school football achievements, e.g. Al Bundy, cuz that's where they ended... like you with your so-called "Medical Minutes."

  • Zizzle

    The doctor failed to mention that a third doctor offered to assist (how convenient) and was ALSO denied because he didn't have proper documentation.

    Why was that her responsibility? I mean, some of you people on here treat everything as mindless gossip. If verifying proper documentation overrides the immediate medical needs of a passenger, no plane should take off w/o a verified physician on board, cuz seconds often matter.

  • Zizzle

    No, because mo' comments, mo' money.

  • hi-liter

    Darker? Really?...I had no idea.

  • Zizzle

    And when you end up handicapped or worse cuz you went a minute more w/o treatment than you needed to, while the flight attendants were verifying credentials, you won't sue then either, right? I mean, what are the chances of someone standing up in a situation like that claiming to be a doctor if they're not?

  • shay

    Yessssssss! These titles have people heads so far up they backside they can't even function. I work for several psychiatrist and listen to them talking to the patients, I swear I don't know how they have drivers license. This was racism at its finest. According to the bystander effect most people ain't jumping up to help others out in the case of emergency so if these 4 people said they were doctors, I wouldn't need anything to know they telling the truth. A life is in the balance and doing something is better than standing around doing nothing like most people do!

  • S T

    You are in fact correct. I just saw someone misstate federal law provisions. As a flight att and lawyer, I have to, have to correct that: aviation is a federally governed entitity that DOES NOT, in the course of flight, OBSERVE GOOD SEMARITAN PROTECTIONS. Flight crew cannot allow a person on the aircraft to claim physician or medical personnel status without producing credentials. The airline can be held liable where credentials are not documented in the paperwork, as well as, and solely, the crew members who directly or indirectly, allowed a person to touch a passenger without producing said credentials.

    Is this detailed by SR, I missed it. I can see this sort of thing evolving a medical education check: I'm a medical student, intern, resident, attending of xyz specialty while chaos is raining midair.

    At the end of the day, we must stop looking for acceptance and acknowledgment from the others. It's not going to happen. Just keep supporting and uplifting ourselves. Blessings

    I read more details on another site. There was an accounting of what happened and what was said on the other site.

    Unfortunately, the G.S.L actually does not protect nurses, doctors and other medically trained individuals from being sued for malpractice. This law mainly protects non-trained individuals who attempt to help someone in medical need but cause injury or death because of their lack of knowledge.

  • Okaro

    Delta does not care about individuals being sued. It cares about the company being sued. I do not think the Good Samaritan law protects them. Also there was a doctor who had his credentials so it is proper to let him do the thing.

    There were three people who volunteered. They chose the one who has credentials. They acted according to the protocol. Why should they have chosen the black woman? Because she is black?

    The police here in Chicago did the same thing when Lil Durks cousin Nuski was killed. A qualified nurse was present and could have performed CPR to save him until paramedics arrived, but CPD told her no...she was black as well...IDK how the game goes but, if someone is qualified to do so and that oath binds them to help a person in need...why couldn't these women of color help?

    I was simply having fun with you because the word welp is unusual. I don't need attention from you, I don't know you so your attention is not personally beneficial to my quality life. Have a great weekend Sensitive One.

  • Allihave2say

    You are right. I got you clearly now tho. I see you lack the ability to ascertain when someone is making light hearted conversation in a jovial manner. Bye crybaby.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    There's more to it than that.

    Each state varies. If one approaches an injured person you should identify yourself and ask permission to assist if that person is able to assist. Everyone has the right refuse treatment. One can still be sued for malpractice or assault. I know many clinicians who carry malpractice insurance. In fact, my school wouldn't allow you to enroll unless you had it.

  • n1kk1a

    No. Because she offered to help. The other guy didn't even show his credentials.

  • n1kk1a

    Right, so it would have applied to her, right?

  • Diane

    Sandra rose, stop being an uncle Tom. The flight attendant dismissed her because she was black, period. I work with doctors and this happens often to doctors of color, so don't dismiss her accusations.

  • justsayin

    That angry black woman shit. Started with the republicans. They wanted to call our first lady, ugly. so they use angry instead of ugly. Some ignorant black people picked it up. All humans get angry. even babies.

  • Leigh Burton

    The doctor could have just shown the flight attendant credentials. You have to be careful nowadays. There was also a beautiful lady in Atlanta pretending to be a teacher!

  • God’s child to the end

    Standing ovation!!! Bravo!

  • stanley

    She's in training but still a doctor that's qualified to see patients. They have alot of that in Vegas. They have 1 main doctor that goes on your billing statements, but 10 doctors that work underneath them that you usually see. They don't do that in Kentucky. The doctor you schedule your appointment to see is the doctor that is there.

  • stanhope

    Delta can suck out of both sides of my a s s for insulting this woman

  • stanhope

    Only crackers would say such a thing. YT people, like Farrakhan said, are the devil on earth.

  • stanhope

    No my pet, they were being racist...call it what it is.

  • stanhope

    No bytch, because she is a doctor..purchase a clue.

  • stanhope

    And odds are the doctor was NOT a Black woman.

  • Keyster29

    No, she's received a degree that shows that she's been taught. She's currently being paid for hands on training. She has to have malpractice insurance to train/ work as a resident b/c she can be sued for liability as a resident as well. My professor took a whole class period to teach us about G.S.L. and advise us that it would not be a smart idea to aid a person in a accident if we came upon them because we would not be protected if they or their estate decided to sue us for wrongful death or injury. Ppl in the medical industry take a big chance if they do decide to help. It's sad that you have to thank twice about saving someone's life, when that's all you want to do.

  • Keyster29

    Right.. My school wouldn't allow you to enroll either. I was a first yr student with a million dollar policy, while only hitting the books and working on dummies. And after finishing school my job required that I increase my policy in order to be hired.

  • Sabrina Samurai

    You know the term "crackers" isn't really an insult. It's the term used for the slave drivers with whips. There aren't too many white folks offended by that term. Js

  • Sabrina Samurai

    I really wish they could release this attendants' name. Maybe she could feel a little bit of the humility that she inflicted on Dr. Cross. Shame on her

  • Li

    It seems to me it's a matter of "credentialing." Anybody can say "I can help" and be a nurse or a nurse practioner or just a plain old somebody....but Delta explained it by saying they needed credentials. Maybe Ms. Cross should have said, "I'm a doctor in training."

  • Li

    But the flight attendant asked for a "doctor" not a doctor in training or a nurse.
    I can imagine Ms. Cross gets pushed aside A LOT in her work as a doctor in training for white males and/or foreign males. That's just the way things are.

  • Li

    ^^ THIS

  • Alex J

    If she is a resident, she is already a doctor. Once you graduate from medical school, you become a doctor. No residency program will allow you to continue to work with expired credentials. Texas, in particular where she is a resident, is very strict and it is actually a felony to practice with a license that is expired for over 30 days.

    By the time she has completed 3 years of training (the total length of time of all internal medicine and family practice residencies) she is quite experienced and should be qualified to assist. She would be covered by Good Samaritan laws unless she was grossly negligent in her actions or accepted payment for her services (I think that would include SkyMiles).

    Lastly, most doctors don't carry copies of their medical licenses. Most states give you large wall sized licenses and that would be impractical and should not be a requirement or barrier to supply medical assistance in an emergency. This sounds like racial stereotyping to me.

  • Alex J

    I don't and most doctors I know don't. Most licenses are wall sized. Once you have become credentialed to work in a hospital or have your license posted it in your office, why would you ever need to provide spot proof of it?

    I have never had anyone ever ask to see my license when acting as a good samaritan and in an emergency the first concern should be rendering life-saving care to the patient, not license verification.

    I don't and most doctors I know don't. Most licenses are wall sized. Once you have become credentialed to work in a hospital or have your license posted it in your office, why would you ever need to provide spot proof of it?

    If she showed some form of ID confirming her status as a Doctor then she has grounds to sue for being discriminated against..

  • qtpi

    Stop with the angry black women shit. White ppl are historically the most angry, barbaric group of ppl known to man kind and they continue to hate.

  • Simone

    I don't get it. Why didn't she just show her medical credentials? Delta Airlines has to protect themselves from being liable for any medical mishaps performed by a non-health professional on their plane. This is an overblown attention seeking story. My Husband & I fly on Delta all the time & they're great. Why is everyone on edge? Everything is not about race. My worst treatment at doctor's offices was as that hands of stuck up rude Jamaican nurses & I'm Jamaican-American.

  • AL Dunbar

    Cracker, sometimes white cracker or cracka, is a usually derogatory and/or offensive term for white people,[1] especially poor rural whites in the Southern United States. In reference to a native of Florida or Georgia, however, it is sometimes used in a neutral or positive context or self-descriptively with pride

  • Jones

    Exactly.

  • Janice Collins

    The flight attendant needs to be punished because Dr Cross didn't have her credentials. The flight attendant needs a medal for not allowing just anybody play doctor on passengers. Not enough people take their jobs senious.

  • Blue

    If it was a petty day, and I was the good doctor, I would have said "ok" then went back and sat down and let it play out however it went. Die if u want.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    "All humans get angry. even babies."

    So true, however, as another Rose said in a different topic, between the (un)Reality Shows, Steve Harvey and others indicating the need for Black women to show out (cause a scene) when angry has exacerbated the situation.

    Black women are not the only people to get angry, but have become synonymous with it because of the actions of quite a few imitating what mainstream media and TV portray.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    But IF you are a Doctor and you step up to assist, why not show credentials? In the write up it says: "A message posted on the Delta website, stated that three passengers identified themselves as doctors but only one “was able to produce documentation of medical training.”"
    Only 1 of the 3 were allowed to check the passenger because only 1 of them produced credentials.

    Honestly, would ANY of you here want some pretender that wants to reenact some movie scene to be allowed to examine you if you were incapacitated? Discrimination is not necessary, but I'm glad they are required to see credentials. Th FA could have handled it better, but if the woman IS a Doctor, it would have held much more weight and "cracked the FA's face" had she pulled her credentials out, shown them and walked away

  • Branch Davidian

    "All humans get angry. Even babies." Stop bringing Donald Trump into this discussion!

  • Guess Who

    "Delta stated the flight attendant followed proper protocol by requesting documentation."

    Delta needs to STFU with that bald ass excuse.

    The flight attendant was being a condescending IDIOT, plain and simple. The "white doctor" who assisted the sick passenger didn't show any credentials nor was he asked to show them.

    The flight attendant had the NERVE TO ASK the black doctor what next steps needed to be taken for the passenger even though she didn't believe the black woman was a doctor.

    This ain't about showing proper ID or credentials....it's about the flight attendant didn't believe a black woman was a doctor and treated her like she was lying. THAT IS ALL THIS IS ABOUT. Has nothing to do with Delta's policy and procedures.

    ALL about race, plain and simple.

  • middleagerant42

    But they didn't ask the white man for his credentials but we mad? Okay

  • Diane

    The good samaritan law protects health care professionals not the general public.

  • n1kk1a

    I am a dental assistant. I am certified in CPR. If something happens to someone, and I perform CPR on them and break their ribs, the Good Samaritan Law protects me, or anyone else that tries to help. That's why it's called Good Samaritan.

  • n1kk1a

    I get what you're saying. I thought the article says that she's not a doctor. So if she isn't, wouldn't she be protected?

  • Lacey Langton

    Actually, in that case the doctor was a black man, as were the parents of the baby (i.e. they were a black couple). I remember that case well. He was pulling on the poor baby's head so hard it pulled the head away from the spine and he just tried to play it off. To be fair, again that doctor was black and that is NOT to say that all black doctors are incompetent-far from it. I'm just clarifying for accuracy's sake.

  • Lacey Langton

    No, but the poor parents were black.

  • Lacey Langton

    I'll bet they just went by looks alone. Some people have an idea in their head of what a doctor should look like. I've been guilty of that. I was in the hospital once and had an attending physician who had dreadlocks. In the back of my mind I was thinking "Does this guy know what he's doing?" and I'm bi-racial myself. It wasn't that he was black, it was just the dreads (which were shortish, neat, tidy and tied back but still)....you don't expect to see a doctor with dreads. Turns out he knew exactly what he was doing-totally competent. We all have our little prejudices.

  • Lacey Langton

    BTW, I joked with him "You don't look like a doctor" because I wasn't 100% sure that he was. He wasn't even offended. He just smiled and said "What is a doctor supposed to look like?" He seemed amused by the whole thing. He knew what I was thinking.

  • Satan

    Phuck you low IQ 1/5th

  • Keyster29

    All 50 states and the District of Columbia have some type of Good Samaritan law. Who is protected under these laws (physicians, emergency medical technicians, and other first responders) and how these laws are implemented vary from state to state. In addition, some states extend Good Samaritan liability protection to cover business and nonprofit entities acting during an emergency.......I studied as well as live in Maryland, and in our state professionals can still be sued for malpractice but wont be criminally prosecuted. Your state might protect medical professionals from being sued. Check your local G.S.L law so you know what you can and can't do.

  • JUDGEMENTAL

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS...

    Some Facebook users accused Cross of being an angry black woman with a superiority complex who made the in-flight emergency all about her.

  • Ted Barbaras

    The other Dr was actually Mexican not white. A white older doctor also got denied who didn't have credentials as he watched it unfold. He said he was ashamed as Tamika started screaming at the other Dr and ordering him around. She called him useless and an assortment of names.

    He said it was horrid and he felt bad for the other Dr and the patient.

  • sillystrings

    more likely to believe Delta than her, actually, But if there was discrimination, probably age and gender; she looks quite young. Apparently they are required to ask for credentials to be shown though and that's what she did; if she said what this woman says she did, then the flight attendant was wrong though.

  • Artorian11

    Yeah, you're right, we all have a little prejudice within us or at least a presumption about others based on looks or cultural background. I still struggle with not stereotyping biracial people as conceited, and confused about their cultural background.

  • Artorian11

    And he likely simply had thick skin to your statement as his profession is far more important than what a patient thinks about him personally.

  • Artorian11

    That's the key point, had she asked the white doctor for his credentials than perhaps the naysayers would have a good point. But the idiot flight attendant let the white doctor attend to the patient without question. Thankfully the attendent was fired and hopefully will be reduced to a career in fastfood.
