Moving Beyond Stereotypes


Several years ago, when a patient gave Chris Porter a long stare, he thought the man was judging him because of his race or his profession. In reality, the incident taught Porter himself an important lesson about prejudging people.

I live in a world and I am part of a society that has the lowest expectations for me. Images on the 6 o’clock news serve as a daily reminder that black males are to be feared and would mostly likely do harm to someone. I read how I would be lucky to live to the ripe age of 30 and chances are I might have been in jail. I am the father of several children with little or no means or interest to care for them. I am a black man in America. Nevertheless, here is the truth.

 

I am 49 years old, hold a master’s degree, and work as a nurse practitioner. I have never been in jail and have no children. The truth is that each day I want to be an example of good humanity. Despite the images and assumptions about me provided by the media, I have learned a great lesson that I carry with me each day when I introduce myself with “Hello, my name is Chris, and I am the nurse who will be taking care of you.”

 

About 15 years ago, I was working in an intensive care unit in Dallas, Texas. I was assigned to care for a 60-year-old Caucasian male who had suffered a heart attack. He was married and had children but seemed, at least to me, uncomfortable with me taking care of him. His condition was very stable, and he was due to be discharged from the ICU in a day or two. Each time I entered his room to gather vital signs or administer medications, he kept staring at me in an odd yet familiar way.

 

When I moved to Texas and began working in my profession, oftentimes, I would have trouble convincing people that I was a registered nurse. Some would assume I was a housekeeper or an orderly and assign me tasks common to those positions. Often I would hear “I have never been taken care of by a black nurse before.” Well, I was sure that this scenario was more of the same.

 

When I entered his room again to administer medications and to ask if he was having any pain or discomfort, he continued with the familiar stare. I decided to remove the awkwardness of the situation by asking him if there was something he wanted to ask me or say to me, and he said:

 

“I was just thinking that I had a son who died when he was 18 years old, and his name was Christopher. Today, he would be about your age, he was tall, he was about your height, and he wanted to be a nurse. I was wondering if he would have been the kind of nurse that you are and where he would be working and what he would be doing. I have not thought much about this until I met you this morning.”

 

Not prepared for this, I asked how he died and how many years has it been. I then excused myself to go to the bathroom to cry.

 

This story serves to remind me that the world is not always cold and mean—that many things are not always as they seem. I believe that there are people who can see beyond color and stereotype to see the person. It serves as a reminder to me to enter each situation as a unique experience and to examine my own stereotypes and assumptions.

 

I believe that others have already defined much of who I am supposed to be, and I have spent a great deal of time running from that definition. I believe that there comes a time in everyone’s life when he or she must speak up and address stereotypes and assumptions because they are easier to believe than the work it takes to discover the uniqueness of the individual. That time began for me 15 years ago, and I am dedicated to being a better human being today than I was yesterday. If I begin with myself then I have the power to affect all that I meet.

 

That experience instilled in me the belief that if I take the time to listen, people will lower that shield that often takes days, weeks, and for some, years to lower and share in a way that changes the listener. I believe that each person I take care of has a unique story to tell, and if I am focused and ready to listen without assumption and stereotype, they just might share their story.

Homework(标蓝处听不明白)

This week’s podcast is made possible by a generous donation from Troy and D W
“And this brings me to what I believe…
I believe life is a spiritual struggle.
I believe in being gracious to others.
I belive in the power of science fictions.
I believe in seeming badly.
I believe that God lives in the space between people.
I believe in so much more on freedom speech and I believe that it’s time we all to be stand “
This I believe.
Welcome to This I Believe. I’m Dan Gadman. Over the past decade, We’ve been doing this series, We’ve received hundred of essays from nurses of every stripe. Pediatric nurses, intensive-care nurses, public health nurses. They work long hours, performing tasks many of us wouldn’t want to do. They present during moment of tragedy and joy. And when we need medical care, they are often the first and last people we see.   
This week, as the nation celebrates National Nurses’ Week, we are going to hear an easay from a nurse, Chris Porter.
Several years ago when a patient gave Porter a long stare, he thought the man was judging him, because of his race or his profession.  In reality the incident taught Porter himself an important lesson about prejudging people. Here is Chris Porter with his essay for this I believe.
I live in a world and I’m part of a society that has the lowest expectations for me. Images on the six o’clock’s news serves as the daily reminder that black males are to be feared who would most likely do harm to some one. I read how would be lucky I live the ripe age of thirty. And chances are I might be in jail. I’m the father of several children. With little worth no means and interest to care for them. I am a black man in America.
Nevertheless ,here is the truth.. I’m 49 years old, hold a master’s degree and work as a nurse practitioner.  I’ve never been in jail and have no children. The truth is that each day I want to be an example of a good humanity. Despite the images and the assumptions about me, provided by the media, I have learned a great lesson that I carry with me each day when I introduce myself with “Hello. My name is Chris and I am the nurse who will be taking care of you.”
About 15 years ago, I was working in an intensive-care unit in Dalas Texas. I was assigned to care for a 60 year old carcation male who suffered heart attack. He was married and had children that seemed, at least to me, uncomfortable with me taking care of him. His condition was very stable and he was due to be discharged from the ICU in a day or two. Each time I entered his room to get vital signs of ??? medications , he kept staring at me in an odd yet familiar way. When I moved to Texas and began working in my profession. Often times I have trouble convincing people that I was a registered nurse. Some would assume I was a house keeper or an  ??? and assigned me tasks common to those positions. Often I would hear the “ I have never been taken care of by black nurse before. “  When I was sure that this scenario was more of the same. When I entered his room again to ??? medication and to ask if he have any pain or discomfort,  he continued with the familiar stare. I decided to remove the awkwardness of this situation by asking him if there was something he wanted to ask me or say to me and he said,”I was just thinking that I have a son who died when he was 18 years old. And his name was Christopher. Today he would be about of your age. He was tall. He was your height. And he wanted to be a nurse. I was wondering if he would have been the kind of nurse that you are and where he would be working what he would be doing. I am not that much about this until I met you this morning.” Not prepared for this, I asked how he died and how many years it has been. Again, I excused myself to go to the bathroom to cry. This story serves to remind me that the world is not always cold or mean. That many things not always it seems. I believe that there are people who see beyond color and  stereotype to see the person. It serves as a reminder to me to enter each  situation as a unique experience until examine my own stereotypes and assumptions. I believe that others have already defined who I’m supposed to be. And I have spend a good deal of time running that definition. I belive there come a time when every one life when he or she must speakout and stress stereotypes and assumptions. Because they are easier to believe than the wok it take  to discover the uniqueness of the individual. That time began for me 15 years ago. I am dedicated to being a better human being today than I was yesterday. If i began with myself. Then I have the power to affect all that  I need . That experience instilled me the believe that if  I take the time to listen, people ??? but often takes days, weeks and for some years to lower, and share in a way that changes listener. I believe that each person that I take care has a unique  story to tell. If I’m focused and ready to listen, without assumption and stereotype , he just might share their story.
Chris Porter wrote this story several years ago, when he worked in b? university’s medical center as an intensive care nurse.  He and his spouse now live in Seattle Washington cooperate spanial . where Porter is a nurse practitioner in private practice.
