Oprah Winfrey Show
I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if
the statements about race he was accused of saying were true.
Statements like'...'If I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish
and Asians would buy my clothes, I WOULD NOT have made them so nice. I
wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for upper
class white people.'
His answer to Oprah was a simple 'YES'.
Where after she immediately asked him to leave her show.
Scene took place on a British Airways 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 & see if another place is available.' The Hostess went
away and t hen 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 a 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.
If You are against racism, please send this message to all your friends.
