On Racism....

Another story sent through email. I have no idea if this really happened, but if it did, it sure makes a powerful statement against racism. Read on.

Scene took place on a BA (British Airways) flight between Johannesburg and London. A white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black man.

Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess. "Madam, what is the matter," the hostess asked.

You obviously do not see it then?" she responded. "You placed me next to a black man. I do 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. I will go to see if another place is available."

The Hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later. "Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is also no seat in the business class. All the same, we still have one place in the first class."

Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued: "It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the 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, and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in first class."

At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded. This is a true story.

I like this story. Reminds me of my bestfriend's (who lives in the UK)story. She rode a bus in London and there were 2 13 yr old british kids behind her. She found herself the recepient of candy wrappers and snide remarks. So just when she was about to go down the bus, she turned around and gave the most aggressive of the 2 a chop to the face. The kids were stunned. When she reached the sidewalk, she gave them a dirty finger. You see she is a taekwondo instructor. Hehe. Takes no shit from white kids ;)
