Good for BA. There was nothing cute or funny about that racist nonsense.

Bit silly really, all they had to do was check the roster to see who was heading out there on that day. Match the video up with the person and there you have it.

The gist of her rant is that Nigerian men have big c*cks. Maybe its more a question of what she wanted to be "smoking" before her flight ;-)

This is why you gotta be really careful what you send or say on snapchat. Even something you consider an harmless joke could be taken much more seriously. Pretty bad actions here to say the least.

This also goes to show that snapchat really isn't private.

As a black West African man, i didn't see anything racist to be fair. She however was unprofessional and condescending, made worse whilst wearing a uniform which clearly identifies your work place. Some people forget just how quickly things spread on social media.

She looks drunk in the video.

Either way, she'll now have to pay out of her own pocket to get a good stretching out by the BBC she seems to love so much. You had it all before girl and look at you now - you've ruined it for yourself!

The moral of the story is don't post anything even remotely contraversial if you live on a politically correct prison island.

If she wasn't in uniform she could have gotten away with it. I didn't find it racist, she was stereotyping, but of course wrong of someone uniformed to do so.

Hahahahaha brilliant. Best thing I've heard all day.

On a more serious note, I do agree with the comments we live on a politically correct Island but I still think what she said was a bit much and posting it on social media too.

There has been similar things, remember the BA stewardesses showering each other on youtube?

Most likely she thought no one can record snapchat messages. Actually, BA should transfer her to Comair where BBC has broad coverage.

I don't understand why people take service oriented jobs when they have contempt for the folks they're taking care of. If she doesn't like Nigerians, couldn't she have bid on another route?

My point proven.
There was nothing racist about it. Maybe she is being racist to whites for being small too then while we're at it.
Plenty of black people commenting on the Yahoo post saying they take no offense either. People need to get a sense of humour again. Sure it was dumb posting that on social media in uniform though.

More specifically this 'air hostess' might have to save you in a plane crash some day, and it's pretty clear her head is full of beef and c**ks that I wouldn't trust her to walk my dog never mind save my ass.

It is racist, because if you believe the positive stereotype then you will most likely believe the negative ones as well. There has been a story in the UK recently about a chant for a football player and the size of his penis as well and I think this article sums it up nicely.

Attention (some) Manchester United fans: all racial stereotyping is racist

As huge amounts of psychological research have found, the trouble with supposedly positive stereotypes is that they tend to be accompanied in the minds of those who hold them by distinctly less complimentary ones. Time and again research papers have showed you couldn’t have one without the other: people who saw Asians as great at maths also thought they were cold and remote, and terrible drivers. If we may boil down this tendency to a racist drama in three sentences: why is it racist to say Jews are careful with their money? It’s a compliment, for God’s sake. Bloody hell, trust the Jews to find something to complain about....

...As the aforementioned social psychologists repeatedly find, those who are positively stereotyped in one department are negatively stereotyped in others. For instance, you don’t get people to assume you have a superior penis without them also quietly assuming you have an inferior brain.


So if you do believe you are not racist but believe what she said, then unfortunately you may have to re-think your attitude to race.

Oh, c'mon...I wish people objectified me for the size of my **ck!!! :D :lol: I've made peace with the fact that black men are bigger than me! :tongue2:

On a more serious note: It's extremely inappropriate, yes, and very very silly - and speaks heaps of the kind of shallow individual she is.
Posting anything even remotely controversial whilst wearing the uniform that feeds you is an extremely unwise decision, that more often than not people will come to regret bitterly.

Yet should someone be denied a job because of their accent? If she passed all the exams and came across as professional then that is what matters.

On this issue though she was wearing BA uniform and is guilty of gross misconduct.

I love that people think they can send anything they want with Snapchat and it goes away in seconds. In theory...yes. But there are apps that allow people to capture what you snap. So figure whatever you send with Snapchat will become part of the permanent record. Sure it is against their ToS but that isn't going to be much of an argument on your part when you've been busted for Snapping something ignorant.

Well we'll agree to disagree. Standup comedianssay stuff like this all the time and no one bats an eye, they laugh. Anyone else says it and it's racist. If a black says it, is it still racist?

Oh dear. I would really stop digging if I was you. I don't like to make accusations, so I will just say you're revealing quite a lot about yourself here, and you probably don't even realise it. There's a lot of people out there who claim not to be racist but actually are guilty of casual racism all the time because it's part of their culture they don't see the problem.

If you think her post was her being complementary about the size of people c***s then your critical thinking skills are somewhat lacking. Look at her tone and everything she says - she has complete contempt for the people she's taking about. So yes, it is racist.

The 'air hostess' (who says that any more?)


Veering off-topic... I see this type of comment a lot here. AFAIK it's only really the US that has decided that "flight attendant" is correct and "air steward / hostess" is wrong - so I think it's actually quite an arrogant comment! (Harks back to the "is this site too US-centric" thread...)

Personally, I don't even see what's "better" about flight attendant or what's "wrong" with air hostess.
"As with most things related to aircraft design, it's all about the trade-offs and much more nuanced than A.net likes to make out."

It's not racist, it's stupid.

And quit blaming everything it on our President - this didn't even happen in the US!

You would be surprised. I know some guys that had a terrible time when slim-fit pants first became popular.

The gist of her rant is that Nigerian men have big c*cks. Maybe its more a question of what she wanted to be "smoking" before her flight ;-)


Hahahahaha brilliant. Best thing I've heard all day.

On a more serious note, I do agree with the comments we live on a politically correct Island but I still think what she said was a bit much and posting it on social media too.

There has been similar things, remember the BA stewardesses showering each other on youtube?


Terrible, terrible .- remind where is this exactly? :D


Its on youtube, search for it :D

This is not raciest and whoever suggest's that needs to get a life and quit acting like a princess. Jeez, she is joking. What happened to sense of humor.
