A nurse at one of the largest hospital systems created a furor on social media over the Thanksgiving weekend when she made a horribly racist tweet suggesting that sons of white mothers should be ‘sacrificed.’
The tweet from the account ‘Night Nurse.’
From Fox News:
“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves b___,” the tweet read.
The tweet was traced to a nurse named Taiyesha Baker who worked for Indiana University Health.
An IU Health spokesperson confirmed after the post was discovered that Baker is a registered nurse, but declined to reveal the hospital where she is currently employed.
“IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee,” the hospital said in a statement. “Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”
A spokesman for the hospital group put out a statement on Sunday indicated that the nurse had been fired, “A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.”
The nurse had claimed to work in pediatrics and people were particularly concerned because they believed she worked for Riley Children’s Health Hospital but that was not shown to be the case.
She received her license on October 30, so she was very new.
The hospital group noted other troubling posts.
Here’s a sample of some of the others. ‘YT’ in case you don’t get it stands for ‘whitey.’

Obviously, this woman had a few screws loose.
The question may be how did she manage to get a job with a hospital to begin with.
Just a bit disconcerting to think someone who disturbed may have been in charge of caring for people.
