Delta accused of ‘blatant discrimination’ by black doctor after incident on flight

A black female doctor has accused Delta Airlines of “blatant discrimination” after a flight attendant allegedly refused to believe that she was a physician and blocked her from helping a sick passenger.

Cross wrote that even after officials on the flight requested help from physicians on board, a flight attendant allegedly told her: “oh no sweetie put ur hand down, we are looking for actual physicians or nurses or some type of medical personnel, we don’t have time to talk to you.”
