Skip to comments.Bumped United Passenger Fires Back At Sheila Jackson Lee's Racism Charge, Airline
Posted on 12/28/2017 3:47:12 PM PST by blam
A United passenger whose first-class seat on a recent flight from Houston to D.C. was given to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is firing back at the Democratic congresswoman's accusations of racism while challenging the airline's account of the incident.
Jean-Marie Simon, an attorney and private school teacher, became the latest face of airline passenger woes when she detailed on Facebook and later to the news media how she lost her seat to the Texas lawmaker.
But despite a statement from United seeking to explain the switch-out, she's not giving up the fight. And the congresswoman's response essentially claiming Simon made a scene because Jackson Lee, as an African-American woman, is an "easy target" did not calm the waters.
Simon, in an interview with Fox News, rejected the racism allegation.
That could have been Donald Duck in my seat, Simon, a Democrat, told Fox News on Thursday. I could not see who had boarded the flight. I didnt even know who she was.
Simon originally accused United of bumping her from her first-class seat on a Dec. 18 flight in order to accommodate the Texas congresswoman.
At first, Simon didn't know who was in her seat as she argued at the gate. United eventually gave her a $500 voucher and reseated her in the economy plus section. In her original Facebook post, Simon said another Texas congressman then informed her a fellow member of the delegation was in her seat, and "regularly does this" to passengers.

Seven words will do: Sheila Jackson Lee is an ignorant slut.

Nope, Lee is a racist African bully.
It is time that the black privilege queen realize that it is she, that is a PUBLIC SERVANT.
No. No man would have her.
There is no way that Sheila Jackson Lee is not behind the airline bumping this woman from her seat.
She keeps getting elected.
Makes you understand why most republics limited the franchise.
They are improving!
They did not beat her or knock out any teeth.
Check your black privilege, byotch.
The first one to bring up race is the racist.
Can you be racist against a water buffalo?... Just askin’
Her luck ran out as far as assuming other passengers would just bend over for this treatment, although there’ll be no consequences to SJL.
For someone who thinks she’s a queen, she’s a classless low-life.
A white liberal learns that their liberalism doesn’t save them from being labelled a racist. Deliciously ironic.
I remember when public servants didn’t use their platform to bully citizens. Long long ago in a galaxy far far away....
While she is staggeringly ignorant, I cannot imagine that enough whiskey and Viagra exist in this universe to facilitate that last part being true.
I’m sure most of her district is cheering her for making a white woman sit in the back of the plane. She needs to be gerrymandered out of existence.
Well just look at the electorate in her district (not their race...their trashiness)
It's not rocket science.
I would like to know how much are WE paying for the poverty pimp to fly back and forth.
Are WE paying for first class, or are we paying coach?
