This scene took place ona british airways flight between johannesburg,south africa & London. A white woman was seated next to a black man. very disturbed by this she called the air hostess"You placed me next to a black man.I dont agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group.Give me an alternative seat." "Be calm please"the hostess said."Almost al the places on this filght 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 seats in economy class,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 unusual for our company to permit someone from economy class to sit in first class.However given the circumstances the captain feels that it would be disgusting 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 lease collect your hand luggage a seat awaits you in the first class" At that moment the other passengers who'd been shocked by what they had just witnessed applauded. This is a true story!please do not support racism!Avoid any kind of discrimination among people of any caste or creed.

Great story! It was terrific how the captain and hostess handled the situation. People are so wrong when they judge by the color of someones skin! if more people acted like the staff o this plane it soon would be a memory how many people are racist!
