    Star* call 911

    A freind sent me this today - and it made me chuckle. You could replace the black or white with any color or disability.

    This scene took place on a British Airways flight
    Johannesburg, South Africa & London.

    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
    group. Give me an alternative seat." "Be calm please," the hostess
    "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 unusual for our company
    to permit someone from Economy
    Class to sit in First Class. However, given the circumstances, the
    feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so
    She 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.

    Yes my Dad does live in Mexico... no he is not Mexican... hmmm? No my Mom was Spanish and Portuguese my dad is English and Native American with a sprinkle of French...
    Well how can your Nephew be black? He's not, he's mallato...
    It just get's so confusing to even explain!!! Even my husband step-dad is mildly ignorant as well as his Mom, I think it is some of that generation that has not pulled their heads out of their you know what's...
