I just read an answer to a question that says a Dr. was black and spoke white so black people did not want to see him.

What does speaking white mean to you? What difference does it make to the patients?

  • Well, regardless of what color skin a Doc. has, he should always be professional and polite. If they did not go to him because he said "hello, how are you, what can i do for you?" instead of " yo yo whats up my man how is it hangin'? well then that is their loss. Just gets to show you that racists people discriminate there own color not just others.

  • I would think that it means "more proper" at least that is what my MIL tells me. However I don't think there is a way to talk black or talk white, it is all one language....

  • White and Black ppl do have different accents but that's not a bad thing. Personally, I love the way black people talk!!

  • i'm not sure what it means to ''talk black". i dont see how the way someone talks would affect their ability to practice medicine.

  • Oh that's just stupid!!! A doctor I wouldn't wanna see would be a white one talking black. White ppl can't pull it off!! He would look stupid to me. Now, a black docto talking white?? There's nothing special in the way white people talk..
