    Gracious ILites,

    I got this mail from my cousin and was very moved by the moral it conveys. Through such snippets, we get a chance to understand that being human gives us an advantage over other animals to develop morality but also gives inherent arrogance and pride which we have to conitually strive to curb. Read on... i am sure it will make you want to be a good human.

    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 are 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 one seat in the business class. All the same, we also have one seat in the First class.

    Before the woman could say anything, the hostess continued: "It is
    unusual 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 then 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. This is a true story.
