BLACK HEARTED

On a flight from Johannesburg, a middle-aged, well-off white South

African Lady has found herself sitting next to a black man. She called

the cabin crew attendant over to complain about her seating.

“What seems to be the problem Madam?” asked the attendant.

“Can’t you see?” she said, “You’ve sat me next to a black. I can’t

possibly sit next to this disgusting human. Find me another seat!”

“Please calm down, Madam.” the stewardess replied. “The flight is

very full today, but I’ll tell you what I’ll do – I’ll go and check to see if

we have any seats available in club or first class.”

The woman cocks a snooty look at the outraged black man beside

her (not to mention many of the surrounding passengers).

A few minutes later the stewardess returns with the good news, which

she delivers to the lady, who cannot help but look at the people

around her with a smug and self-satisfied grin:

“Madam, unfortunately, as I suspected, economy is full. I’ve spoken to

the cabin services director, and club is also full. However, we do have

one seat in first class.”

Before the lady has a chance to answer, the stewardess continues…

“It is most extraordinary to make this kind of upgrade, however, and I

have had to get special permission from the captain. But, given the

circumstances, the captain felt that it was outrageous that someone

should be forced to sit next such an obnoxious person.”

Having said that, the stewardess turned to the black man sitting next

to the lady, and said:

So if you’d like to get your things, sir, I have your seat ready for

you…”

At which point, apparently the surrounding passengers stood and

gave a standing ovation while the black man walked up to the front of

the plane…
