Emmitt Walker is a black music executive who recently purchased a first class ticket to celebrate his 37th birthday in the Dominican Republic. As he was about to board his flight from the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in DC, he was approached by a white woman who tried to cut in front of him. She thought that he was in the ‘wrong line’ because of his skin color.
When Emmitt posted a picture of him in line with her, his Facebook post quickly went viral.
But soon after landing in the D.R. and seeing that his post went viral, he promptly apologized to that woman.
Emmitt posted the conversation on his Facebook. ‘Her: excuse me I believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us [through.] 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.’
Emmitt then goes to show her his first class boarding pass to the racist woman and says ‘you can relax ma’am, I’m in the right spot, been here longer so you can board after me.’
The woman then claims that Emmitt must have been in the ‘military or something’ but since she paid for her seats she should get to board first.
