Dear Civil Rights and Social Justice News Readers:

Just got a wonderful story passed on to me, via eMail, and I wanted to share it with you:

A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flightand ... immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to a black man.Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demandeda new seat. The woman said "I cannot sit here next to this black man." Thefight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat." Afterchecking, the flight attendant returned and stated "Ma'am, there are nomore seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if thereis something in first class." About 10 minutes went by and the flightattendant returned and stated "The captain has confirmed that there are nomore seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our companypolicy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being thatit would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to anUNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class."Before the woman could say anything, the attendant gestured to the blackman and said, "Therefore sir, if you would so kindly retrieve your personalitems, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as thecaptain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person." Passengersin the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.If you are against racism, share this.
After listening to all of the crap that is being said during the GOP primaries (racist, sexist, homophobic and more), this finally brought me a smile, and I hope it does to you, too.
