This is how it went down, she assumed because he is black that he couldn't possibly be in the right lane and asks him to move.

He shows her his boarding pass which doesn't change her opinion that she should be first, again assuming that the must be in the military and his flight was paid with government money, her tax money.

Walker replies that he has never served in the military and that he is simply able to afford the ticket, which results in the rest of the passengers waiting in line to start clapping.
