@spacecoastbill you must not be a black man. So you would have no Idea what it feels like to be discriminated against because of the color of your skin. You were not there for the experience so you have no right to say that it was not discrimination. The man at the gate had no reason not to let him on the plane at 20 mins before takeoff but he had already classified him as the black man with an attitude who doesn’t deserve to board. He confessed to this when asked and said it was because he had an attitude with him. So I suggest you do a little more reseach on disrimination before you tell me, Marcellus or anyone else what they did or did not experience and yes I am a black woman and I know exactly what that feels like.
