248. Did I EVER say the CNA should force her help?
I have said ALL ALONG the CNA did the right thing in getting help, as opposed to escalating her reaction, risking injury to herself, her co-workers, other patients!

And I have said ALL ALONG that the patient's expressed racism is disgusting!

My ONLY point here is that the schadenfreude towards a sick old lady, regardless of how obnoxious she may be, is disturbing!

I am sorry! NONE of us gets to be universally loved! But to savour the suffering of others, even those who hate us for totally B.S. reasons, is beyond comprehension!

Anyhow, let's take a quick trip to the root here... how would YOU go about fighting against racism? What about homophobia?

Is there any room for trying to help people grow out of it? Or do we throw all the murderers and rapists and child molesters and spouse beaters and theives on the street so we can make room for Robert Redneck?

Is there an answer that doesn't involve EXPANDED misery?

May the chip on your shoulder be replaced by a warmth in your heart!
