Update: Nurse FIRED for Anti-White Tweet
PJ Media – An Indiana University Health nurse is under fire for racist tweets about killing white babies.
Online Redditors and Twitter users tracked nurse Taiyesha Baker to Riley Children’s Health, an affiliate of Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. PJ Media reached out to the hospital and received this statement:
We are aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. 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.
When asked which department Baker works in, the hospital declined to answer. Baker’s Twitter feed was littered with anti-white sentiments. Redditors compiled a sampling here.
Baker’s Twitter account has since been deleted. This comes at a time when Twitter claims they are cracking down on racist content.

Nurse Baker’s sentiments are troubling for many reasons. People trust that when they go to a hospital for care they will be treated equally and without malice while in their most vulnerable state. How will mothers of white sons feel about trusting racist black nurses to care for them after this? People need to be able to trust one another in order to survive. This does not engender trust, but the opposite: suspicion.
A new FBI report indicates that hate crimes committed against white Americans are the fastest growing racial hate crimes in the United States.
The FBI report on 2016 Hate Crime Statistics shows that in 2016, there were 876 reported anti-white hate crime offenses in the United States. In 2015, this number was 734, indicating a 19.34 percent increase.
PJ Media will be following the Indiana University Health investigation and will report any updates.
