I agree with your outrage I truly do. I have learned over the years however that racism will truly never end. I wish for nothing more then that but i also know that it never will happen. Racism is not only a fault of the people but also that of our government. It is everywhere you look, from the telivison to the news! It is as old as the bible and I cannot see it going away anytime in the future. As a white person my self I am truly outraged at this comment, but you know as well as I do if we stand up for our race we will be called racists. It is funny that the indians call us pale face, In the state of New Mexico you can not call an idian anything but a native american, my uncle was acually sued for telling an indian that he was a round brown faced SOB!! True story! Look at your calender, we celibrate black history month and hispanic month, where is the white history month? Racism has always inferiated me but it is everywhere our holiday's our government, or polititions, our churche's,our schools and amoung us as people! I belive in one race man kind, no man women or child should be discriminated aginst for the color of his skin. but untill the rest of the world wakes up and relizes this we have a lot of work ahead of us! I recived an email today that I would like to share with you it is supose to be a true story however you know how that goes!
This scene took place on a scheduled flight between Johannesburg, South Africa and London.
A white woman, about 40 years old, was seated next to a black man. Very disturbed by this, she called the air hostess. 'You are obviously not aware of my predicament then?' she said. 'You placed me next to a black man.
I did not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat.'
'Be calm please, the hostess replied. Almost all the places on this flight are taken, but I will go and check to see if another place is available.'
The hostess went away & then came back a few minutes later. 'Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy Class.I spoke to the captain & he informed me that there is also no seat in Business Class. As luck would have it, we still have one vacant place inFirst Class which should solve your problem.'
The woman looked pleased, but before she could say anything, the hostess continued.
'It is unusual for our company to permit someone from Economy Class to sit in First Class. However, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting.' She turned to the black guy & said 'Therefore, Sir, ifyou would like to please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First Class.'
At that moment, the other passengers, who'd been shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up & applauded.
This is a true story. If, like me, you are against racism, please send this to all your friends; please do not delete it without sending it to at least 1 person.
WELL DONE, British Airways
