A few of my peers, who are not nurses themselves, wondered just what was said on The View that was so offensive. I told them that it wasn't even so much the words themselves as much as the general tone of the conversation.
Miss Colorado, I could recite endless ways your profession has helped me, and I applaud you for being the voice of your profession and for bringing it to a national platform. I hope that it is a major step in the right direction to remove the word "just" whenever anyone is speaking of being a nurse.
The women of The View going mean-girl mockapalooza on Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson--and seemingly every nurse on the planet--was not a fine moment for women.
A beautiful woman in a beauty pageant put on baggy clothes and humbly walked across the stage to talk proudly about her career, and her passion for caring for other human beings, and the only thing the women on The View could muster in response were insults grounded in ignorance.
Don't worry, you don't have to worry about this nurse banning your show. After all, I'm the nurse that works 13 hour shifts at two different jobs, the nurse that volunteers once a week teaching prenatal classes to underserved women, the nurse that is still in school (for my Doctorate in NURSING Practice) so I can do better for my patients and my nursing profession.
It is a nurse who will be with you in moments of a medical crisis, a nurse who will guide you through the confusing maze of modern health care. It is a nurse who will remember to ask your name as she struggles to save your life.
It bothers me that Perez apologized for being offended by such an offensive comment. It bothers me even more that she shifted the issue from Osbourne's problematic comment to her sensitivity. Dear Rosie, you were not being too sensitive. Please stop apologizing.
The View is trading intelligence for stupid. With Season 18 of The View coming to a close this week on ABC, the once ground breaking show continues its slow slide into irrelevance with news of its recent cast changes.
You really believed that you were being much more open-minded, much more attuned to the Latino community than Trump could ever be. But see, that's the thing with microaggresions; you think you're being helpful, but in reality, you're not. At. All.
While it can be argued that Osborne's comments did not come with cruel intentions, the example she used, quite frankly, was cruel.
Instead of leading from behind, hire a robust and exciting panel that re-engages the program's core 25-54 demographic which is being lost to its competition, and bring an aging platform into the 21st century by way of social media. Here's who should get the call.
No matter who a judge deems as "right," no matter which party loses his or her case, the truth is, the person who will be most impacted, to either his detriment or his benefit, is the child.

I caught up with Alex some three months ago on the cusp of "the awards show season."
Despite the demographic explosion of Latinos in the country, there are still many glass ceilings that need to come down for them in TV and in Hollywood. It is within this context of implicit bias and decades of stereotypes that denigrate Latina wisdom.
On Fox News, the most unpatriotic thing you can do, aside from supporting the President of the United States, is to criticize a war movie. Now actor Seth Rogen is being heavily criticized for a tweet he posted.
