According to Census stats: the ratio of women to men in the U.S. is about 145M women to roughly 139M men. Broken down into more manageable terms – for every 100 sistas, that’s about 87 brothas.

Persons with private insurance or continuity of care can not appreciate what a “poor” person with limited resources are subjected to. They are made to feel inferior and their care too often is inferior. There was a term used in the emergency room where in Pennsylvania where I trained as a medical student – “GOMER” which meant “Get out of my emergency room”. This term was used among nurses and doctors to describe someone that they did not want to treat or that they felt was a nuisance. As a medical student, I worked on the Navajo Nation, and as an anxious student physician, I was quick to adopt acronyms thinking that it made me seem more profession. Well, while working with the dispatcher and ambulance receiver, I heard the ambulance drive state: “ETA 5min, AFID”. I proceeded to inform the trauma team that an ambulance was on the way. “ETA” means expected time of arrival, but I did not know what “AFID” meant, but I repeated it anyway. Later in the shift one of the Navajo nurses took me aside and asked me why did I say “AFID” and I told her my source. She glared at me and said “AFID” means “Another F—king Indian Down”. I was shocked and ashamed. Neither the dispatcher nor the ambulance driver thought anything of it; they were Anglo, not Indian.
