Feeling the superiority of one race over another is morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous, and there is no justification for any kind of racial discrimination anywhere. But people still discriminate and have prejudices towards other people based on their race or ethnicity. I don’t even know why they would feel that a human can be of higher rank even after knowing that we’re all of the same species.
Even though the world has grown fast with technology and advance progress, some highly educated people still make the unwanted statement of making themselves higher amongst other. A recent similar case came into notice and went viral when a man named Emmit Walker, music-executive based in DC was victimised of petty racism by a white Lady while boarding a flight.
Here’s how it all started.
On 5th Dec Emmit was at an airport in Virginia, waiting in line to board the plane like every normal person does. Then a white lady from behind him tried to cut in line saying “this line is for priority boarding.”
Walker happens to be an African-American. The man couldn’t believe it too, just look at his Facebook post.
So proud of you man.
What was the woman even thinking saying such a thing like that, everybody has their own priority and that is exactly why they are flying to another place. Unless you are a celebrity that would fly to China for lunch like Kim Kardashian did.
This is the conversation that went down between them.
“Her: excuse me I believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us thru. This line is for priority boarding
Me: priority meaning first-class correct?
Her: Yes…now excuse me they will call y’all after we board
Me: *shove first class priority boarding pass in her face* you can relax ma’am I’m in the right spot, been here longer, so you can board after me
Her: *still won’t let It go* he must be military or something, but we paid for our seats so he still should have to wait
Me: nope to big to ever be in anybodies military. I’m just a n***a with money
Everybody waiting in line: starts to clap l**o”
Emmit got a full audience applause from the people around him in the airport.
The post that Emmit uploaded on Facebook went wild viral within the 24 hours and got half-a-million likes and shared nearly 200,000 times.
Well, he did the right thing, your skin color does not tell you where you belong, it does tell you your ethnicity but not your class and virtue.
