Air travel can be a nightmare.
However, when you add some casual racism into the mix, that takes it to a whole new level. Emmit Walker knows what I’m talking about. Who is he, you ask? Well, he is a DC-based music executive who knows how to deal with racist people.
You see, he was going about his business waiting in the ‘priority line’ for the ‘first class’ seats when one woman said he shouldn’t be there. So she started to insist that “this line is for priority boarding.”
Did she think he was oblivious?
She probably only said this because she was white and Walker is black. So she thought he couldn’t possibly be a ‘priority passenger’. Because the color of your skin totally factors in when you buy plane tickets.
So Walker did what anyone would have done. (No, he did not slap the woman.) He documented the incident on Facebook, and not surprisingly, his post went viral.
Her: excuse me i believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us thru. This line is for priority boarding Me:…
Following is his genius retort.
Her: Excuse me i believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us through. This line is for priority boarding.
Me: Ppriority meaning first class correct?
Her: Yes…now excuse me they will call y’all after we board.
Me: *shove first class priority boarding pass in her face*You can relax ma’am I’m in the right spot, been here longer, so you can board after me
Her: *still won’t let It go*He must be military or something, but we paid for our seats so he still should have to wait.
Me: nope to big to ever be in anybodies military. I’m just a nigga with money.
Everybody waiting in line: starts to clap lmao.
I totally get why they were clapping.
His post has gotten over half a million likes.
At the end of the day, viral revenge is the only good type of revenge in 2017.
