This is supposedly a true story.
I don’t believe it, but I thought I would post it because I liked it.

A White woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a Black man. Obviously disturbed by this, she called the air Hostess. “Madam, what is the matter,” the Hostess asked. “You obviously do not see it then?” she responded. “You placed me next to a Black man. I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat.” “Be calm please, the Hostess replied. “Almost all the seats on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another seat is available.” The Hostess went away and came back a few minutes later. “Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in Economy class. I spoke to the Captain and he informed me that there are also no seats in the Business class. All the same, we still have one seat in First class.” Before the woman could reply, the Hostess continued: “It is unusual for our company to permit someone from Economy class to sit in First class. However, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting.” She turned to the Black man and said, “Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First class.” At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded…

A little nod to Obama for his nomination (and this sexy baywatch shot)

Why do I care ? I’m not American.
Do I really have to be American to care ? I don’t think so!
Most americans don’t care. But since Obama came along, more of them pay attention and are pro-active about politics. And for that only, I salute his campaign efforts. It’s about time the American people stand up and take some control.

Watching his speach last night gave me hope for the future of international relations. Yes, I know, these are campain speeches, but it was really a relief to see that the potential future president of the world’s foremost superpower has the charisma to convince me. That’s really something important. His nation will be able to look up to him and be conforted.

Congrats Mr Obama.

Now, tell us, are you a closet muslim terrorist like the republicans paint you? hahaha 🙂 American politics are fascinating in that they are as interesting as they are ridiculous ?
