I have no idea when this photo was taken, who took it or what the scene was before this man found himself in the ER. I don’t know if this member of the KKK was actually a psychopath (I tend to believe, yes), or just someone who was a product of environment. Bigotry is alive today, because of generational growth. Nothing more. What the members of this man’s “club” did, was cruel, heartless, inhumane, and completely inexcusable.
The crimes of the KKK were all too obvious to these physicians. They took an oath. They were able to look past the cloak and fight to help this man, in the end.
I wonder #1 if the man survived. I wonder #2 if he received an epiphany as a result.
This group of physicians are bigger and better than me. I have a background in the medical field. If I was faced with the choice of treating my monster, or letting the world be rid of on more piece of plague, I doubt if I could help him.
I’m warmed by these folks, ignoring the obvious in order to save another person. That is true humanity and empathy.
