Unfortunately, racism is a cancer in societies across our world, that not only still exists but is causing our world to become more and more dangerous. It occurs both overtly and covertly, impacting the safety and human rights of people everywhere.
In the video you are about to watch below, a white woman is seated next to a black man on an airplane. She calls over a flight attendant to complain about the situation, asking for her seat to be changed, because she refuses to travel next to this man because of his skin color.
The flight attendant informs her that the economy class is completely filled, but promises to speak with the captain about resolving the situation. When she returns she announces that a seat is available in first class, as no passenger should have to “travel beside such a despicable person.”
