Story : Black or White, Please don’t be a Racist


A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat and saw that the passenger next to her was a
black man.

Visibly furious, she called the air hostess.‚ÄĚWhat‚Äôs the problem, ma’am?‚ÄĚ the hostess asked her‚ÄúCan‚Äôt you see?‚ÄĚ the lady said ‚Äď ‚ÄúI was given a seat next to a black man. I can‚Äôt sit here next to him. You have to change my seat‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúPlease, calm down, ma’am‚ÄĚ ‚Äď said the hostess
‚ÄúUnfortunately, all the seats are occupied, but I‚Äôm still going to check if we have any.‚ÄĚThe hostess left and returned some minutes later.‚ÄúMadam, as I told you, there isn‚Äôt any empty seat in this class- economy class.
But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn‚Äôt any empty seats in the economy class. We only have seats in the first class.‚ÄĚAnd before the woman said anything, the 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 to travel sat next to an unpleasant person.‚ÄĚ

And turning to the black man, the hostess said:

‚ÄúWhich means, Sir, if you would be so nice to pack your handbag, we have reserved you a seat in the first class‚Ķ‚ÄĚ

And all the passengers nearby, who were shocked to see the scene started applauding, some standing on their feet.‚ÄĚ
