Small amusements

Background: I am white. One of my partners is African-American.

I have a patient who needs delivered this weekend and I'm not on call - my partner is. So I'm talking to her today about induction & she asks me about things. One question was "What does she look like."

"Nothing like me." Said with a straight face.

Thing is, being lost in middle america, people are incredibly racist around here. But when they meet my partner, everyone loves her. Moving this area slowly into the 20th century...

There is an article today on about high school-aged kids in GA pushing for an integrated prom. Being from New England, I had no idea there were still segregated proms. Geez.
