Stop racism – by John Methew
50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat & saw that the passenger next to her was a black man.
Visibly furious,she called the air hostess.
“What’s the problem,ma?” the hostess asked her.
“Can’t you see?”the lady said.” I was given a seat next to a black man. I can’t sit here next to him. You have to change my seat.”
“Please calm down ma”,said the hostess.
“Unfortunately all the seats are occupied but I am still going to check if we have any.”
The hostess left and returned some minutes later.
“Madam,as I told you,there isn’t any empty seat in this economy class. But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn’t any empty seats here but in the first class.”
Hostess continued,”Look,it is unusual for our company to allow a passenger from the economy class change to the first class.
However,given the circumstances,the commandant thinks that it would be a scandal to make a passenger travel sitting next to an unpleasant person.”
And turning to the black man,the hostess said: “Which means,Sir if you would be so nice to pack your handbag,we have reserved you a seat in the first class..”
And all the passengers nearby,who were shocked to see the scene started applauding,some standing on their feet.
