    I believe this will be of interest to JF members:

    Well done Oprah and British Airways


    TWO TRUE STORIES ABOUT RACISM

    1) I'm sure many of you watched the recent taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show.


    Her guest was Tommy Hilfiger. On the show, she asked him if
    the statements about race he was accused of saying were true.
    Statements like'...'If I'd known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish
    and Asians would buy my clothes, I WOULD NOT have made them so nice. I wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for upper class white people
    '

    His answer to Oprah was a simple 'YES'.

    Whereafter she immediately asked him to leave her show

    My suggestion? Don't buy your next shirt or perfume from Tommy Hilfiger.
    Let's give him what he asked for. Let's not buy his clothes, let's put
    Him in a financial state where he himself will not be able to afford the
    ridiculous prices he puts on his clothes. BOYCOTT.
    PLEASE SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ANYONE YOU KNOW..


    Then send it to the whole community that's not white people and see the result.
    We have to see the result of unity.


    Let's find out if Non-whites really play such a small part in
    the world. Stop buying any range of their
    (Tommy H etc) product, perfume, cosmetics,
    clothes, bags, etc.,


    2) Scene took place on a British Airways flight between Johannesburg and London .


    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 places on this Flight is taken.

    I will go to see if another place is available.' The Hostess went
    away and t hen came back a few minutes later.. 'Madam, Just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is a seat in the business class.
    All the same, we still have one place in the first class.' Before the woman
    could say anything, the hostess continued: 'It is not Usual for our
    company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the 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 guy, 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.

    Both the above are true stories. If You are against racism, please send this message to all your friends;

    Libellous hoax email
    An email saying that Hilfiger appeared on the Oprah Winfrey television show on "28 November" and made racist remarks, and calling for a boycott of Hilfiger's merchandise,[10] has circulated widely. It was first seen in 1996, seemed to disappear, but reappeared and was still in circulation as of 2011[update].

    Winfrey made clear on her show and website in 1999 that Hilfiger had never appeared on her show until then, much less made the remarks attributed to him in the email;[10] and Hilfiger paid investigators, who traced it to a college campus but could not identify the perpetrator.

    Allegations were reported to the Anti-Defamation League; they wrote to Hilfiger in 2001 "We have concluded that these rumors are completely false, and it is apparent that you never made the statements attributed to you, nor did you appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show". Hilfiger appeared on the Winfrey show on 1 January 2006, where he and Winfrey repeated that he had not appeared before. Winfrey said about the email "You're supposed to say, 'That's a big fat lie.'"
