98. And you know, the irony...
I wonder how many here who had a relative in that sort of situation who had made that sort of request would be sitting here calling him or her all sorts of names, not feeling anything but scorn and contempt if that relative fell and got seriously injured or DIED because no black/Asian/gay/Republican/female/male person could help the relative...

Oh yeah...I can see it now...

outrage of the nuclear kind...maybe even lawsuits.

Or maybe not...maybe the people so unsympathetic in this situation would also think, "Good...let the old fucker lie on the floor unattended!"

Not a good choice there...hypocrisy?

or cold contempt for someone (even a family member) who didn't get help because of a "bigoted" attitude.
