This was sent to me by another TP'er:) I loved it...and wanted to share it with you all.

The following scene took place on a BA 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 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 also no 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.

This is a true story.

It certainly does make you think.
I can't believe that some one would behave like this, but obviously they do!

Thanks for sharing x
