Marion Barry has change of heart after being saved by Filipino hospital staff

In what reads like a bad Hollywood movie script, Marion Barry has changed his mind about Filipino nurses. Just a few weeks after complaining about how many Filipino nurses work in Washington D.C., Barry’s life was saved by Filipino medical professionals.

That’s right. The same people he wanted to push out of D.C. hospitals ended up treating his potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Barry felt so indebted to the Filipino hospital staff that saved his life that he took to Twitter to renounce his earlier bigoted remarks.

Got a blood clot while waiting on plane in Memphis t/b repaired 3 times! Taking blood thiner. I thank God it was caught. #thankGodALLthetime

Being sick brings religion. As much as I need to fight for the needs of my community, I certainly don't want to hurt anyone in the process.

He still hasn’t apologized to “dirty” Asian restaurant owners yet. Not holding our breath…

Reaction:

@michellemalkin @twitchypolitics At least he saw the light and apologized for his discrimination. #learnedhislesson
