Let me tell you, I’ve seen some skin-hatred in my day.
I lived through the time that Nancy Pelsoi took to the floor of Congress to attempt to incite a lynching against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
But this is the top of the pops.
American Airlines has apologized to a Texas doctor after she was temporarily removed from a plane over her romper outfit. Dr. Tisha Rowe was boarding a Miami-bound flight from Kingston, Jamaica, en route to Houston when a flight attendant told her to get off until she covered up, CBS affiliate KHOU reported.
Rowe told KHOU that she was traveling with her 8-year-old son on June 30 when she was asked to step off the plane. Once off, she was told to cover up or she wouldn’t be allowed back on. After failing to change the crew’s mind, she asked for a blanket, wrapped it around herself and then walked down the plane’s aisle to her seat.
“I am, like, head down the whole time,” Rowe said Wednesday. “I don’t want to see anybody’s face. I’m embarrassed. I’m humiliated. I did not look up at even a single passenger.”
Here is what i was wearing when @AmericanAir asked me to deplane for a talk. At which point I was asked to “cover up”. When defending my outfit I was threatened with not getting back on the flight unless I walked down the aisle wrapped in a blanket. #notsofriendlyskies pic.twitter.com/AYQNNriLcq

American Airlines rules state only that passengers must “dress appropriately,” and bare feet or offensive clothing aren’t allowed. Rowe said the crew didn’t single out anyone else, even a woman who wearing smaller shorts.
“If I, being Leticia Rowe, was a white woman in that same body suit, if they thought it’s inappropriate, do I think they would have removed that white woman from the plane?” she said. “Absolutely not.”
She complained on Twitter about the airline crew following the incident for apparently considering her shorts “too distracting.”
American Airlines learned of her comments and apologized on Tuesday.
In a statement, the airlines said, “We were concerned about Dr. Rowe’s comments, and reached out to her and our team at the Kingston airport to gather more information about what occurred.”
“We apologize to Dr. Rowe and her son for their experience, and have fully refunded their travel,” the statement continued. “We are proud to serve customers of all backgrounds and are committed to providing a positive, safe travel experience for everyone who flies with us.”
You can take your apology and shove it up the brown passage of your racist white ass!
We’ve had enough apologies!
We want JUSTICE!
These flight attendants hate this woman.
Not because she is morbidly obese and trying to board a plane half naked.
They hate her for the color of her skin.
This is America, folks.
The land of hatred.
And the highest hatred of all is a hatred for the color of the skin, based on an aesthetic dislike for the color itself.
The hatred must end.
The oppressed people of color who were enslaved for thousands of years must be free.
And the only way to give them that freedom is to start killing white people in the streets.
