This is a true story.

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 seat is available."

The Hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later.

"Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seatsin the Economy class.I spoke to the Captain and he informed me that there no seat in the Business class.All the same, we still have one seat 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 makesomeone 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 bywhat they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.

Racism is the worst sin......

Support anti-racism!!!!

Actually I got this story as a forward mail,long back.

But the reason for me to post it now is the recently concluded ODI series between India and Australia....

The spectators booing Andrew Symonds with racsist taunts is very uncharacterestic of India....
We Indians are also non-whites.... I am very disappointed with Mumbai and Nagpur crowds...

Symonds a great all rounder(Australian)

Ecstatic Sreeesanth after dismissing Symonds

Mumbai Crowd making monkey taunts against Symonds

These incidents have sparked serious rivalry between India and Australia.

Like the rivalry between England and Australia.....

Like the rivalry between India and Pakistan.....

This is new rivalry in cricket....

But the source for this rivalry being Racism hurts me......
