    TWO TRUE STORIES ABOUT RACISM

    1) I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey


    Show where her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if
    the statements about race he was accused of saying were true.
    Statements like"..."If I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish
    and Asians would buy my clothes, I WOULD NOT have made them so nice. I
    wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for upper
    class white people."

    His answer to Oprah was a simple "YES".

    Where after she immediately asked him to leave her show.


    My suggestion? Don't buy your next shirt or perfume from Tommy Hilfiger.
    Let's give him what he asked for. Let's not buy his clothes, let's put
    Him in a financial state where he himself will not be able to afford the
    ridic ulous prices he puts on his clothes. BOYCOTT.
    PLEASE SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ANYONE YOU KNOW. Then send it to the whole community that's not white people and see the result. We have to see the
    result of unity.


    Let's find out if Non-whites really play such a small part in
    the world. Stop buying any range of their product, perfume, cosmetics,
    clothes, bags, etc.


    2) Scene took place on a British Airways flight between Johannesburg and London.


    A White woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black man.
    Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess. "Madam, what is
    the matter," the hostess asked. "You obviously do not see it then?" she
    responded. "You placed me next to a black man. I do not agree to sit next to
    someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat."
    "Be calm please," the hostess replied. "Almost all the places on this
    Flight is taken.

    I will go to see if another place is available." The Hostess went
    away and then came back a few minutes later. "Madam, just as I thought,
    there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the
    captain and he informed me that there is a seat in the business class.
    All the same, we still have one place in the first class." Before the woman
    could say anything, the hostess continued: "It is not usual for our
    company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the first
    class. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would be
    scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting." She
    turned to the black guy, and said,
    "Therefore, Sir, if you would like to,
    please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in first class."

    At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had
    just witnessed stood up and applauded.

    Both the above are true stories. If you are against racism, please send this message to all your friends;

    not just afro american................

    Dear Pravina,

    you are talking about afro american problem.. now listen to my story.
    once due to some prob., our direct flight to paris got cancelled and we were re-routed thru switzerland.

    In swiss air, one of our friend had to sit next to a white guy & Inspite of our friend being so fair & smart looking, the white guy asked for a change of seat & moved away. It was so embarassing for him.

    however, fair we are, even we are considered colored.

    I'm sure a lot of them will have diff stories to share on this.
