    Usually you provide too much information. This time the problem is the opposite

    You find the photo troubling, why?

    What disturbs you about an obviously candid photo?

    I guess he doesn't like the patient being used as a backdrop when the subject is the medical staff. It is like the big fish in your vacation picture.

    You do realize that by using that photo as your avatar makes you just as guilty as those you despise. And another thing, those "white people" just saved that man's life so if they were in fact saving the world for themselves, they would have let the man die.

    You know some people would see that as a candid photo of a disaster patient and the medical team helping him to recover.

    Other people see only a black face and white faces.

    I wonder which of those people would be more likely to be the racists?
