NAACP Warns Black Passengers About Traveling on American Airlines

New York, November 2 (RHC)-- In the U.S., the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the NAACP, has issued an advisory warning Black passengers about a pattern of racist incidents on American Airlines flights. 

The NAACP cites multiple instances in which African-American women were removed from flights or switched from first class to coach.  It also cites an instance in which an African-American man was forced off a flight for responding to the racist comments of fellow white passengers. 

The NAACP says these events “suggest a corporate culture of racial insensitivity and possible racial bias on the part of American Airlines.” American Airlines says it does not tolerate discrimination.
