Earlier this week, we wrote about Tamika Cross, a doctor that was denied access to helping a patient on a Delta flight because of racial discrimation, she claimed.
Since then, Black female physicians all over the country have come together on social media to stand in solidarity with Cross with the powerful #WhataDoctorLooksLike hashtag.
With many tweeting directly at Delta airlines, their goal share and strike back at the discrimination they face daily.
“…in case you are having a difficult time breaking prejudices amongst your staff, here is #WhatADoctorLooksLike…” Dr. Kanene Ubesie tweeted.

When the incident took place last week, Cross took to her frustration. Her post went viral, with responses from other black women sharing their own testimonies.
“I’m sure many of my fellow young, corporate America working women of color can all understand my frustration when I say I’m sick of being disrespected,” Cross wrote.
