Sorry everyone, I was too busy to update my New Zealand trip in my blog after coming back to work this Monday… Just got the below from a friend back in the volunteer worker’s days in secondary school to share with you first. This reminds me of the Oscar-winning movie "Crash"…
PS: I’m not an anti-racist though, I’m only a follower of the ethics that everyone deserves to be respected.
A scene took place on a BA (British Airway) 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 than?" 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 one seat in the business class. All the same, we also have one seat in the first class." Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued: "It is unusual 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 then turned to the black guy, and said, "Therefore, sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, as seat awaits you in first class."
At the moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded. This is a true story.
