- A black passenger waiting in line was rudely asked to move by a white woman
- He explained and showed her his first class boarding pass proving he was in the right place
- She wouldn't let it go at which time let her know exactly how he got his first class ticket
Breifly.co.za learned that Emmit Walker is a successful music executive based in Washington D.C, in America. He was waiting in the priority boarding line for his flight, which he had booked first class when a white woman assumed he was in the wrong line.
He corrected the lady in a way that exposes her white privilege and causes the rest of the passengers to clap at a fresh serving of social justice according to boredpanda.com.
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.
Not only did his witty comeback result in real life applause the internet also gave Walker credit.
