Woman Doesn’t Believe Black Man Flies In First Class – His ‘First Class’ Reply Wins The Internet

Unfortunately, there are still people out there that such privileged and sheltered lives that they are convinced they are better than others. This often manifests itself as racism.

Some people have the strength to stand up to these people and that’s what music executive Emmit Eclass Walker did.

He was boarding a first-class flight when he encountered a snobby woman who made some backhanded racist comments to him while waiting in line to board their flight.

He called the woman out in a Facebook post that included a photo of the women, which did not show her full face, which ended up going viral. He had a hilarious response to her rude comments.

Here’s how the conversation went:

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

The post was shared more than 262,000 times on Facebook. Walker, however, didn’t consider the wrath of the internet when he made the post and only thought that a few friends would see it.

Some people who backed Walker and commented on his Facebook post received threatening racist comments through Facebook Messenger.

Though she was definitely being horrible, Walker said he never meant for the woman to be harmed or embarrassed by his actions or cause anyone else to get upset and become more angry and hateful.

He posted the following apology on Instagram:

“When I posted that post on Facebook I didn’t expect all that to come from it. I can honestly name the four or five people I thought would comment with something funny, and that will be it. This racist stuff is definitely a issue but this is not the solution to that issue. It brings me no joy waking up in paradise to for my 37 bday and knowing that woman might be going threw hell.

When i posted that post on Facebook i didn’t expect all that to come from it. I can honestly name the four or five people i thought would comment with something funny, and that will be it. This racist stuff is definitely a issue but this is not the solution to that issue. It brings me no joy waking up in paradise to for my 37 bday and knowing that woman might be going threw hell. The story was definitely real, just like this issue is definitely real, but i now know that I myself should of handled it another way, or left it how it was, and not shared It publicly. When dealing with people i always try to stay on the side of Right, so to make sure I never do anybody wrong, I try to always put myself in that persons shoes, and ask how would I feel if that person did this to me, and if I was her this morning i would be a total wreak today, and that doesn’t help this situation, or her…it only makes them more angry, and bring more drama…SO I WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGIZE AGAIN TO THE WOMAN I HAD THIS ENCOUNTER WITH YESTERDAY. NO MATTER HOW WRONG YOUR ACTIONS YOU DON’T DESERVE THIS @realdlhughley @daquan @respectmyhair @mediablackoutusa @theshaderoom @undocumedia @hgcapparel @berrycurly @kimorajfox I BELIEVE IF YOU CAN’T HELP NOBODY AT THE VERY LEAST YOU SHOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING TO HURT THEM

They say two wrongs don’t make right but hopefully, Walker’s concern for the woman makes her think twice about the way she treats and thinks of those that are different than her.
