NAACP Leader Accuses US Airways Of Racism For Making Black Passenger Pull Up His Pants…

 

Of course, because white kids never wear their pants hanging off their ass.

The leader of the San Francisco chapter of the NAACP said Friday that US Airways engaged in discriminatory conduct by requiring an African American passenger to pull up his pants before boarding a plane, but allowing a white man to board another flight wearing little but women’s undergarments.

The Rev. Amos Brown said the group’s national leaders would contact airline officials to suggest sensitivity training for executives and ask them to “atone, repent and show their wrongness is understood.”

“The NAACP, in no uncertain terms, contends that this young man was profiled,” Brown said in reference to Deshon Marman, the 20-year-old passenger who was asked to lift up his pants by an employee before he boarded a June 15 flight at San Francisco International Airport. “He’s been a victim of racial injustice, and US Air owes to him and his mother an apology.”

Marman’s mother, Donna Doyle, said she did not condone the sagging pants fashion, but was appalled when she learned that the airline had allowed a man to fly in an outfit that exposed his midsection and thighs.
