Well, do you remember the Seattle woman who unfortunately experienced ‘banking while Black?’ It seems like flying with black people is also a bit of an issue as Emmit Walker a DC-based music executive learned just 2 days ago. A black guy was flying in first class, a racist white woman who was traveling with him made a racist comment on him. This white woman saw the black man in the ‘priority boarding’ line and passed racist comments to him but he fired back with an absolutely perfect response.
It’s sad to see that people still have to go through this especially black people. Emmit Walker story is a sad reality that shows the casual instances of racism black people still have to encounter during everyday situations. But that’s a triumphant example of what happens when the owners of that racism are made a fool of in public and people call them out.
Emmit Walker received an actual applause from the public there at the airport and by the people who read his story online. It went viral in no time and is all the people out there who still pass racist comments should learn from this white woman’s mistake!
This is Emmit Walker, a DC-based music executive who was flying first class but a white woman passes racist comments on him and he just stood up to casual racism in the best way!
It all started when he got in ‘priority boarding’ line to board a flight, and a fellow passenger tried to cut in front of him saying things to him.
People all over the internet and the crowd at the airport applauded for this black guy and his response to the white woman!
