    I live in a rural area and over half of our docs are Black or Indian. They are great. Thing is many of them are from foreign countries orginally, so maybe they are counted as African, Ghandan or other classification.

    Why libs? Moderates, conservatives, extremists and radicals have been a part of the equation too.

    Why try to blame one when the blame can be spread evenly.

    Libs want 100% of the credit, they have to take 100% of the blame.

    this is (at least) the 2nd topic today that you've started blaming libs for the lack of blacks in
    a. medical profession
    b. teaching


    by blaming liberals for the lack of minority doctors and/or minorityteachers you are showing

    a. that you are an idiot
    and
    b. you are a partisan arsehole

    and not worthy of serious debate

    liberals promote and defend the rights of minorities

    we promote and defend their rights to become doctors and teachers

    if they choose to NOT become teachers and doctors
    OR
    if they fail to meet doctoral and/or educational standards to BECOME doctors and teachers....that is NOT our fault

    when I lived in maine I had 2 doctors;

    my first doctor was a lesbian who I trusted and liked very much

    my second doctor (after she moved away) was a black homosexual
    who I ALSO liked and trusted very much

    I did NOT SPECIFICALLY CHOOSE These 2....
    I was a member of a medical group (in town) who had a number of local doctors available to choose from

    these two happened to be available for me and I chose them without knowing they were lesbian or black or homosexual

    but upon meeting them and observing their talents I was very happy with my ACCIDENTAL CHOICES


    perhaps you should try to grow up and stop blaming liberals for things we have no control over...

    This is illogical, irrational and extremely unreasonable

    I find it rather tiring trying to debate with idiots who make deranged comments like this

    liberals defend minority rights and equality

    we promote a fair playing field

    we can NOT control the outcome

    Blacks and Hispanics are the children of white liberals.
