Health Care

My Parents told us never to go to the County hospital, because the Japanese get no help there. For example, there was a terrible flood and a White woman got covered with mud. The nurses ignored her because they thought she was Black or Mexican. After they washed the woman’s dirt, [realizing she was White] they helped the woman immediately.
