Black Woman Suspected of Trafficking White Girl Who Is Actually Her Sister at Dallas Airport
An airline was accused of racism after targeting a black woman suspected of trafficking a white child that ended up being her little sister. The shocked 21-year-old was left in tears.
A 21-year-old black woman named Lakeyjanay Bailey was deeply traumatized when she was publically humiliated by airport authorities. This occurred when she landed at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
Officers were waiting for her under suspicion that she was involved in human trafficking. Upon witnessing Bailey with her 4-year-old white adopted sister Olivia, a fellow passenger had reported her concerns.
With the implication that the distressing situation for both Bailey and her little sister was due to racism, the young lady tearily expanded on the incident and how it impacted her. She expressed:
"I feel bad, knowing that I might have to go through that a lot."
Her blonde little sister, who was sitting next to her, gave her a big hug as Bailey appeared to be trying not to cry. She explained that when she arrived at the airport, two police officers approached her.
They then spoke to the two, said the 21-year-old, questioning the little Olivia and asking her if she knew who she was with. The questions then kept coming, with Bailey emotionally professing:
"If the roles were changed and it was a white person walking off the plane with...a black child, I feel like things would be different."
Following this highly public interrogation, the officers then followed her to baggage claims, where they spoke to the driver. She stated that everyone around her and her sister was staring and mumbling under their breaths.
The incident occurred after a fellow traveler became concerned when she saw Bailey and Luna together, according to Frontier Airlines. The passenger approached the flight crew to voice their concerns.
She suggested a name, distastefully referring to the death of George Floyd.
The captain then purportedly felt compelled to report the incident after the fact, with the airline claiming that racism played no role. The young woman and her relatives are considering taking a legal route.
This alleged racism does not only occur on a small scale, with public figures such as Meghan Markle & Prince Harry, becoming the targets of highly racist Tweets.
A previous columnist for the Telegraph, Julie Burchill, aimed her Tweets at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby Lillibet Diana. She suggested a name, distastefully referring to the death of George Floyd.
The columnist snidely suggested that the two ex-royals should have named their daughter Georgina Floydina. In this case, there were consequences, with Burchill getting fired from her job.
