Emmit Walker quickly exposed a woman who questioned and harassed him, making racist comments after ending up behind him in the ‘priority boarding’ line. This seasoned DC-based music executive skillfully used the power of the internet to remind her that her behavior is unacceptable and that ignorance and racism must be dealt with swiftly. His perfect response quickly went viral and he received a round of applause from his fellow passengers.
According to BoredPanda: “Walker’s story is a sad reminder of the casual instances of racism Black people still encounter during everyday situations, but is also a triumphant example of what happens when the owners of that racism are called out and made a fool of in public.”
The confrontation began when Walker was in line to board and another passenger demanded he leave the ‘priority boarding’ line and wait “until he was called.”
Her: excuse me i believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us thru. This line is for priority boarding
