Racism… ( A tRUE sToRy)


Scene took place on a British Airways 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 then?’ 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 is taken.

I will go to see if another place is available.’ The Hostess went away and t hen 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 a seat in the business class. All the same, we still have one place in the first class.’ Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued: ‘It is not Usual 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 turned to the black guy, and 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 were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.


Imagine if you had experienced or encountered this kind of discrimination…Will you do the same what the Captain and the Hostess did???

  1. di lang pala mga blac people ang naapektuhan sa racism.

    kahit ako apektado ako pag naargabyado mga pilipino!
    at lalo na kapag sinasabi nilang dehado ang asians sa totooot. hahahaha

  2. nakakalungkot lang na hanggang ngayon, andyan pa rin ang racism. im sure madami tayong kababayan na nakakaranas nyan. haay. kakalungkot. 😦

    pero sana, tingnan din nating mga Pilipino yung mga sarili natin, kasi minsan nagiging racist din tayo.

  3. pasensya ka na, hindi ako makapagcomment kasi maliliit sulat ng computer ko, as in hindi ko mabasa ung post, so pano ako magcocomment, back read na lang ako next time. salamat….
