NAACP Advises Against American Airlines
On Tuesday, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People released a statement warning black Americans from traveling via American Airlines. Their travel advisory detailed the events surrounding four black passengers’ experiences with discrimination aboard flights. The NAACP president, Derrick Johnson, is planning to meet with the leaders of the airline company “to air these grievances and spur corrective action.” The organization is working towards their goal of making sure Americans of all races feel they can live their lives without fear of harm. American Airlines said the advisory is disappointing because they too work to make sure all of their customers feel safe.
