    It can't be a group of assholes getting kicked of a plane, it's because they're black:afro:

    Seven 'disruptive' African-Americans booted from Spirit Airlines Flight 868 to Texas, discrimination alleged

    Cell phone footage captured by a passenger shows police speaking with the first traveler asked to leave Spirit Airlines Flight 868.
    Seven African-American passengers were booted from a Spirit Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Dallas-Fort Worth International Monday, raising concerns that the flight crew discriminated against them because of their race.

    Los Angeles Airport police officers initially escorted just one couple off Flight 868 shortly after 7:15 p.m. local time because a white flight attendant accused a male traveler of being disruptive when he refused to get up from his seat.

    “It’s a business dispute,” LAX police spokesman Rob Pedregon told the Daily News. “It’s up to (Spirit) to define what is disruptive.”

    Five more passengers were asked to leave after allegedly questioning the flight crew’s motives in kicking the couple off the flight. All seven passengers were African-American.


    “They were talking about the incident and making assumptions and were asked to leave at that point,” Pedregon said, refusing to respond to allegations that the airline discriminated against the passengers.

    The ordeal left some passengers stranded in Los Angeles for at least three hours.

    “It was more than just us having a conversation,” Alexandria Wright, one of the booted passengers, told KCAL-TV. “Why is it that, what, six black people get kicked off the plane?”

    A handful of passengers forced to leave Spirit Airlines Flight 868 stayed at the Los Angeles International Airport for several hours Monday night.
    No officers were on the plane when the second group disembarked.

    The flight left Los Angeles International Airport without the seven travelers at 8:17 p.m., but not before fellow passengers tweeted photos of the confrontation and accused Spirit Airlines of being racist.

    Passengers claim the flight had been overbooked, KCAL-TV reported.

    The airline did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    None of the passengers face criminal charges, but they stayed at the airport while waiting for their flights to be rebooked. The airline handed out hotel vouchers to those passengers, officers at the gate told Pedregon.

    “I’m really humiliated just of the simple fact that you hear about this kind of stuff in America, you know, discrimination issues,” Wright added. “But to actually experience it first hand?”

    Black have become the privileged race. If you're white ,you're not allowed to treat a black person like anything but royalty. If you find yourself in any sort of conflict with a black person, remember - you are in the wrong. Black people are above the rules, above the laws, above responsibility, above self-reliance, above criticism, above the consequences of attacking police...

    I'm sorry, but certain segments of society just need to realize that the rules for what constitutes 'acceptable behavior' change when you're about to be locked up in a metal tube with others for several hours.

    With these alleged "racist business" cases shouldn't the burden be on the "humiliated" party to show a racist motive on the part of the business? Why the presumption of racism?

    It's silly logic and facile thinking to presume that a black person acting in violation of a corporate policy was singled out because he's black. Are white people kicked off other planes? Why were other black people left on this plane? This is never addressed by the dopey media. Stir up that racial hatred you assholes.

    It's a lot worse than unchecked - it is supported and encouraged by this administration.
