Dr. Tamika Cross is accusing Delta Airlines of discriminating against her on a flight and nearly letting another passenger die in the process. A flight attendant refused her help while searching for a doctor to treat a man having a medical emergency by telling her they were searching for "actual physicians."

Cross is an OBGYN resident at Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital in Houston. She detailed the run-in on her Facebook page.

Black women physicians are standing in solidarity with Dr. Cross with the #WhataDoctorLooksLike hashtag on social media. These accomplished women are striking back on the overt and subtle discrimination they face, by letting the world know they've worked hard for their credentials.
