    Black Lives Matter activist rages after kicked off flight
    CHRISTINA CARREGA-WOODBY NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Today, 4:00 AM E
    An award-winning poet and Black Lives Matter activist says she was kicked off an American Airlines flight for questioning a flight attendant for moving non-English speaking passengers from the emergency exit row.

    Imani Cezanne was one of four people seated in the exit row of the flight from Charlotte, NC to Atlanta, GA on March 25 when a female flight attendant asked them if they understood English.

    Cezanne, 26 of Washington, DC, noticed the couple across the aisle seemed frustrated as if they did not understand.

    The flight attendant immediately asked them to switch seats with another couple. The couple did not object, but Cezanne did.

    Imani Cezanne intends on filing a lawsuit against the airline for breach of contract and other allegations.
    "This is 2016, why don't they have at least the translation in other languages to at least explain what's going on ... knowing they cater to people who speak other languages?" Cezanne asked.

    “That couple looked frustrated and upset because they physically had to get up ... I felt it was necessary for me to say something,” she said.

    Federal regulations issued in 1990 say passengers must understand English in order to sit in the exit row.

    Instead of the flight attendant explaining the rules to Cezanne, she walked away.

    Cezanne called a friend for insight and discussed her concerns with the passengers seated next to her, when the flight attendant interrupted the conversation.

    "Are you going to be a problem? she allegedly asked Cezanne.

    "Are you going to be a problem? Why would you ask me that?" Cezanne fired back.

    The flight attendant walked away, again, to speak to the pilot.

    Another crew member knelt down to Cezanne, the 2016 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion, and asked her to leave because her colleague felt "threatened."

    “That couple looked frustrated and upset because they physically had to get up ... I felt it was necessary for me to say something,” Imani Cezanne said.
    Cezanne said she was "shocked" by the request and refused to move.

    The airline called Cezanne an "unruly" passenger who refused to comply with the crew member instructions and had to call the local police department, said a spokeswoman with American Airlines.

    Cezanne said she took her issues with the airline to Twitter since there isn't a customer relations phone number available.

    She gave a play-by-play of the ordeal and turned her award-winning poem "Flying While Black" in to a hashtag and tagging the airline's account. "The flight attendant initiated the altercation, I wasn't talking to her or yelling at anyone. I was having a conversation with the other passengers," she said.

    Despite the supposed threat, Cezanne's luggage was kept on the flight as the aircraft took off.

    "Nothing about my voice, tone, body language etc. communicated ‘threatening.’ Other than, of course, this Black body. @AmericanAir," Cezanne wrote to her thousands of followers.

    "Once I brought up race, that's when the manager got upset, declined to put me on another flight and banned from American," said Cezanne.

    Sources said American Airlines declined to book her on another flight since she didn't peacefully leave the aircraft.

    "There were a lot of personal and subjective decisions being made here. They did not refund her money or rebook her flight, they just banned her. That's not American Airlines policy," said her lawyer Tahanie Aboushi.

    "They need to conduct proper training for their employees to identify what is a threat instead of throwing that word around as a convenience to avoid addressing non-threatening situations on a flight."

    Cezanne intends on filing a lawsuit against the airline for breach of contract and other allegations.

    "We will work with the customer to resolve the issue. American Airlines values diversity and we do not discriminate for any reason," said the spokeswoman.

    So glad the airline hasn't caved yet and issues an apology to this useless shithead. Let her walk her fat ass to wherever she's going.

    April fools? This is no joke. Maybe you missed the part about her being an "award winning" poet. That's some serious shit right there. Just once I would like to see the airline have some balls and say she is welcome to fly again on American as long as she rides in a cage in the cargo hold.

    I used to work a ferris wheel at a carnival (long story short) you have to balance the wheel against a counter weight on one side (fatties go on one side, skinnies on the other) well this huge black woman was next in line. I asked her if the girl behind her could go next and tried to explain to her the reason.. She went off calling me a racist cursing like crazy.. Came back later with her boyfriend he pulled a knife on my coworker... I quit.. just insane, people have no ability to understand.

    The poor flight attendant. Just doing her job. Now she'll get reprimanded and have to go to sensitivity training. All because some fat bitch has a problem with authority.

    She seems stable.


    Today I was escorted off of a plane by two armed caucasian male officers. I have never believed so strongly that I could die at any moment.

    Did the carnival offer you sensitivity training so you wouldn't abuse your white privilege again?

    What a lunatic. She should feel more afraid walking down the street where she would be more likely to be hit by a stray bullet than from an officer in an airport.

    I'm reading the replies to her tweets .... it seems like most people see this racist cunt for what she is. I'm especially tickled by her most recent tweet. It really shows what this is all about.

    It's about getting someone to pay, nothing more. She's a walking stereotype. :coffee:
