To all my Black brothers and sisters out there!!!

ONE
I am sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey show inChicago 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 (my clothes) 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.
TWO
A scene also took place on a BA (British Airway) flight between Johannesburgand London. A white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a blackman. Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess. "Madam, whatis the matter?" the hostess asked. "You obviously do not see it then?" Sheresponded. "You placed me next to a black man. I do not agree to sit next tosomeone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat." "Be calmplease," the hostess replied. "Almost all the places on this flight aretaken. I will go to see if another place is available." The hostess wentaway and then came back a few minutes later."Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economyclass. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is one seat inthe 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 unusualfor our company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the firstclass. However, given the circumstances, the captain feels that it would bescandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting."She then turned to the black guy, and said, "Therefore, sir, if you wouldlike to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in firstclass."At the moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had justwitnessed stood up and applauded. This is a true story.
