It seems like the racism across the country has reached a point that breaks every known standard for humane living and what actually sets the alarm off is the fact that major companies are also included in this trend instead of committing to a better life for everyone regardless of people’s age, race, ethnicity etc.
The latest ‘defeat’ to equality supporters came from Texas after a major airline suspected young black woman for human trafficking for literally no apparent reason.
According to the The Black Wall Street Time, the incident occurred while the 21-year-old L. Bailey, was traveling through Texas along with her White adoptive sister when Ms. Bailey was stopped by the law enforcement after exiting the plane.
The outlet reported that Bailey was stopped at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport while she was exiting the gate together with her sister.
“There were two police officers, and they came up to me and said, ‘Is it okay if we talk to you?’” recalled Bailey.
She was surprised why the officers wanted to talk with her, but later she was able to connect the dots and accused Frontier Airlines employees who racially profiled her and falsely accused her of sex trafficking after a passenger on a flight expressed concerns about her traveling with her sister.
She immediately understood the situation and what is actually happening at the gate after one of the officers asked her 4-year-old sister “if she knows me and what am I to her, and he asked what my mom was to her.”
Bailey added that the officer asked her sister a few more questions meant to determine if she was in harm’s way while traveling with the 21-year-old, saying that she has nothing against the officers as they were only doing job.
The 21-year-old Bailey was left in tears. It was more than obvious she was deeply traumatized when she was publicly humiliated by airport authorities even though she doesn’t blame them for the whole incident.
According to police reports, a fellow passenger reported her concerns over Bailey while they were still on their flight to the Frontier Airlines flight attendants. Without checking what is really happening, the flight attendants informed the airport authorities and Baily was stopped at the gate.
With the implication that the distressing situation for both Bailey and her little sister was due to racism, the young lady tearily expanded on the incident and how it impacted her.
“I feel bad, knowing that I might have to go through that a lot,” Bailey said.
Despite the fact that she is only 4 years old, Bailey’s sister understood everything and gave her a big hug.
“If the roles were changed and it was a white person walking off the plane with…a black child, I feel like things would be different,” she added.
Understandably, the story immediately went viral and many said they will never ever fly with the airline trying to comfort the victim.
Frontier Airlines came up with a response shortly after the incident claiming racism played no role in the incident and that the captain did what he had to do according to the flight procedures. The young woman and her relatives are considering taking a legal route.
