This Man’s Response To A Racist White Woman At The Airport Has The Internet Cheering
On Tuesday, Emmit Walker was flying out of Washington DC to celebrate his birthday with a trip to the Dominican Republic. But before he got on the plane, he had to deal with a woman who can only be described as the human form of coffee grounds at the bottom of the cup. Bitter, gritty, and a bad way to start your day.
He posted his exchange with the woman, standing behind him in line, on Facebook:
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: priority 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
Remember when you were a kid and you learned that “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Well this lady needed a reminder and Walker was there to give it to her.
The woman, who who is blonde and white as seen in the picture, had incorrectly assumed Walker was in the wrong place because he didn’t fit her image of first class travelers. But when she continued to deny his capability of affording the first class ticket, even after showing her the ticket, Walker responded with the best possible one-liner that everyone waiting around him could appreciate.
On a day like Tuesday, no statement could be more appropriate that Walker’s intro on Facebook, which just says:
“WITHOUT STRUGGLE SUCCESS WOULDN'T FEEL SO GOOD”
Bet it feels good right now, huh?
Within a day, the post went viral and has been shared over 200,000 times. To add insult to injury, just after posting his experience, he was banned from Facebook, presumably because a lot of people who were riled up by the acknowledgement of racism reported the post.
It doesn’t seem like Walker’s too worried about it though. A relaxing island vacation is exactly what he deserves.
