It's been 3 weeks now..
I used to laugh at the racist jokes on 4chan and all, never thought they were serious..
Never thought that someone would have so much hate for me just because I was born to a certain race..
Saving lives at daylight and getting shot at night...
I'm so depressed I don't even know what to do.
It was my first week working too.
Don't let that get you down OP.
It sounds like you've got a good life ahead of you if you recover completely. And now you've got a story to tell! Who else can brag about being shot 3 times and surviving?
I had a feeling that it would be somewhere down there.
You should look into getting work in a place that's more tolerant. NYC is a good choice, and I'm sure you'll make more money.
Maybe even California or Washington. There's a ton of options man.
Just don't give up.
I'm not saying that you should quit your job.
If you have to stay a year for those reasons, then do it because that's a pretty good reason.
Try to save up as much money as you can during this period.
And at the same time, look into opportunities in other states and maybe try networking your way into a job elsewhere.
I don't know German or Swedish..
Plus these countries have different cultures and people, I'm used to the American culture because I've spent a lot of time on the internet and I don't feel like a foreigner here.. well not until recently.
He just wanted to stop you in your tracks, before you started giving people lethal doses of morphine
But I'm doing my best to help your country, and I worked twice as hard than some of the doctors here to earn my place, because I had to take a whole lot of tests, it's like reviewing every subject you had in Medical school 3 times..
I'm only taking the job of lazy Americans who just want to get spoon fed.
Plus not every hospital likes hiring an Arab guy from who knows where, they all prefer Americans, so if we both had the same qualifications then the hospital would've chosen you, sometimes even if your qualifications are worse than mine.
Real talk, why the hell are there so many first generation immigrant Arabs/Pakis/Indians working in hospitals as doctors? I'm sure they're more than qualified for the job and wonderful doctors but it certainly kills my confidence when I'm being treated especially when I can't understand their horrendous accents. Second or third generation immigrants who happen to be Arabic/Paki/Indian? No problem.
Yes. I value my job more than my life, because not only I worked real hard for it I also got to help a lot of people.
I want to learn more.. get better experience and improve myself not live like a refugee in some camp somewhere in Europe where I can't work and just be a burden to the society that I live in.
Canada is great don't get me wrong, but I want to get better, and I have to work in order to do this.
I'm actually really good when speaking to patients.
But yea Indian doctors are god-like they give the best lectures in the whole world, it's just that they are really good, and there is no harm in adding a couple of Indian or Arabic docs who want to improve themselves, you get an overqualified doctor, and he gets the experience he needs.
But yea I guess sometimes its awkward talking to a doctor that you have a hard time understanding, but if I were you I'd feel better because these docs are probably top quality ones and they probably are the best of the best.
Please move to a more civilized part of the country, OP, and don't let this discourage you. The US is just like any other part of the world. Not everywhere is upscale, cosmopolitan, educated, civilized, etc. Avoid the hicks and lowlifes.
Incidents like these make me rethink my stance on racism of any kind as well.
Then you value your career, not your job, not helping people. There are tons of jobs in hospitals for doctors in Canada, you could help people who need it, not only the wealthy (the only ones that can afford heath care in the USA). You're a fucking doctor, why would you force yourself to live in a dangerous place ?
if this really happened it would be all over the news by now
this is the shitstorm that the media has been waiting for
Currysniffer here, its ingrained in the generation above us's culture that being a doctor is the single most prestigious accomplishment you could achieve. The options our parents brainwash us with as kids are
Anything other than that won't win you daddy or mommy's approval, so naturally we go into those fields without opening our eyes to the thousands of other options.
why do you feel like you have to lie on the internet for attention?
There's a situation going on in my hometown and I'm surprised it hasn't made national headlines. I kind of don't want to give it away though. But tell me this, let's say your town had a beloved tradition for several decades then, a few weeks before the event, it's canceled unless ridiculous provisions are met. Let's also say the tradition is most beloved to black citizens and whites did the targeting with support from white businesses. Who's in the wrong? (also is it CNN worthy?)
No he's not, very few people in this country are willing to put in the hard work to become a doctor, scientist, mathematician, etc. You think universities and corporate R&D are importing labor because they like dealing with immigration bureaucracy and the massive uncertainty of hiring someone on H1-B?
They're not lower quality (unless you're at a shit tier institution) and they aren't working longer hours for less pay, they're just concerned with things besides football, church, and celebrity gossip.
Upper class WASPs, jews, and 1st-2nd generation immigrants are carrying the massive dead weight of niggers, spics, and white trash, and they're not going to be able to keep it up for much longer
why are you shilling for rapists and murderers?
