"Say No To Racism" A True Story

This scene took place on a British Airways flight between
Johannesburg (South Africa) London (UK).
A white woman, about 50 years
old, was seated next to a black man.
Very disturbed by this, she called the air hostess.
‘You obviously do not see it then?’ she asked. ’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. I will
go 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. All the same, we still have one place in First
Class.’
Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued.
‘It is not usual 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.’
The Hostess turned to the black guy, 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’d been
shocked by what they had just witnessed, stood up applauded."
