How did you conclude that I chose to believe it's due to racism? I have explicitly mentioned in one of the previous comments that I am not suggesting it was due to racism.
because, like any good politician, you actually did do it, without explicitly typing the words, and even in a post stated that you "weren't accusing BA of racism", while you actually were.
I mean, here's a gem:
"Rephrasing since my previous comment was deleted: You can employ people of certain ethnicity and still be racist towards them.
And I am not accusing BA or Heathrow or any user of racism here."
man, I love that, high quality stuff. hazy, indirect accusation, whilst specifically denying you're saying it at all. Very Trump like ("people are saying... not me... but people are saying").
Then your next post, excerpting the India Times text of: “…the crew member made racist remarks and used words like ‘bloody’ about Indians…. "
which you bolded so we could all clearly see it. Yup, I get it... you weren't calling BA racist, you were just wanting us to let us know what the media was reporting. Yep.
You invoke the BA FA/Nigerian incident to hazily support intimation that BA may have a culture of racism (thus they would toss a family for "offering biscuits");
I invoked the Nigerian incident as a counter to posters claiming BA staff are incapable of such behaviour.
No, no one said BA staff were incapable. What many of us said is that we are dubious that ANY flight crew (meaning not just BA) would actually threaten a 3 year old child.
No, you cited Nigerian because it was a way you could paint the BA as racist without actually saying so. You could have cited BA crew as having poor judgement because they trashed a hotel pool somewhere, or BA pilots as drunks because one was arrested at an aiport - but no.... you specifically chose the racially charged incident because it framed your unstated position that BA has mistreated these passengers because of their color/ethnicity. The fact is this whole story, thread title and pax allegations are specifically tied to their ethnicity.
This BA crew member / crew / pilot may well have behaved poorly, the family may have been wronged, there may in fact, be racist words and actions that have taken place. There just isn't any support for any of that yet, because a one sided statement by a pax simply isn't enough; and the pax statements damage his own credibility because of the assertions about treatment of the child, and other families being evicted for "offering biscuits". These are things that aren't easy to picture.
