Emmit Walker shared an unsavoury, racially motivated experience via social media and the post went viral.
Walker was busy boarding his flight at an airport in Virginia, USA.
To his surprise, a white woman behind him tried cutting in ahead of him in the queue.
Her justification was that the line was for meant for priority boarding and she automatically assumed he was ineligible.
Walker immediately realised her attitude was based on the colour of his skin.
He then checks with her if she is referring to the fact that the line was meant for first class passengers.
She confirmed and immediately said, “Yes, now excuse me they will call y’all after we board.”
Walker, who is a music executive based in Washington DC, then shoved his first-class boarding pass in her face and responded that he was in the right spot and that she needed to wait her turn.
The feisty female then implied that he most probably received the pass as a result of serving in the military.
His swift response was that he is too big to serve in the military and that he was just a Negro with money.
Walker shared the entire experience via Facebook and the post went viral.
However, www.good.is reported that he subsequently felt remorse as he realised that a lot of hateful comments were directed towards the woman as a result of his post.
He later issued an apology to her for posting to social media as he had no idea it would attract attention of that nature.
