Want to see white privilege in action? Recently, Delta Airlines demanded an “actual physician” when an African-American doctor tried to respond to a medical emergency. The company has also been known to remove Muslims from flights for looking a bit too Muslim-y. But when a Donald Trump supporter actually acts in an unhinged and threatening manner the airline does a whole lot of nothing about it.
“Donald Trump, baby! We got some Hillary b*tches on here?” the unidentified man (we’ll call him Cletus) screams in a video posted to YouTube by one of the many horrified passengers. “Come on baby, Trump! Donald Trump is your president, every goddamn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.” He then sits back in his seat as the camera pans to show the massively uncomfortable faces of the people on the plane.
The woman who posted the video says that the Trump fan was briefly taken away by the flight crew but was allowed to reboard and take his seat 15 minutes later. “This is what you get for being a patriot,” the man said before sitting back down.
It is unclear why Delta did not remove this clearly unhinged and probably dangerous individual from the plane, but at this point aren’t we used to these people being given a free pass anyway?
