Before traveling to the Dominican Republic, a Washington, D.C., resident was subjected to what could be described as ignorance at best and a classist/racist mashup at worst. However, his dealing with the situation and subsequent Facebook post made people around the country bow down to him.
Emmit Walker, who is Black, was in the pre-boarding line for first class passengers at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport when a white woman took it upon herself to inform him that he was probably in the wrong line.
First of all, she needs to mind her business.
When the woman approached Walker, the exchange that followed resulted in a clapback of epic proportion.
Walter's caption read:
Her: excuse me i believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us thru. This line is for priority boarding
Me: priority meaning first class correct?
Her: Yes...now excuse me they will call y’all after we board
Me: *shove first class priority boarding pass in her face* you can relax ma’am I’m in the right spot, been here longer, so you can board after me
Her: *still won’t let It go* he must be military or something, but we paid for our seats so he still should have to wait
Me: nope [too] big to ever be in anybodies military. I’m just a n***a with money 💰 🤷🏾♂️
Everybody waiting in line: starts to clap lmao 😂
