On second thought, that isn't a good point. Nobody was telling her how to feel, but as a professional she should have handled it better. If blacks want to get their points across, they need to stop their knee-jerk reaction to everything. There are white people who are actually racist, and there are white people who are simply ignorant about these issues. In my opinion, rather than confronting the person who you see as the offender, but going to someone higher is cowardly. On the other hand, having worked in a profession that is predominantly female. I'm going to stick my neck out and say that most women are back stabber. At least, in teaching they are. The black speech pathologist should also be held to high standards. She should have acted as the professional that she is.
