I was once on a flight from the Caribbean. After a long delay we were permitted to get onto the plane. It was totally crowded and it took quite a while to get everyone into their seats and prepare to leave. It was very hot outside and inside the plane was no better. The smells of unbathed sweaty people was overpowering and there was lots of kids and babies crying and such.
After sitting for what seemed like an hour for some unknown delay, we were just ready to pull away from the gate when this older ‘Colonel Sanders’ looking fellow (yes, complete with the white suit, hat and long white goatee) stands up and loudly announces, “I am not going to sit another moment here amongst these darkies.” You could hear a pin drop and everyone gasped at this fellow’s extremely rude comment. The attendant quickly came back and removed him from his seat…for his own protection I think. I think he ended up in 1st class!
