Speaker 1 (00:00):
It's time for Donkey of the Day.

Speaker 2 (00:02):
It's a read.

Speaker 3 (00:03):
But you're so good at you're trying to be a
fake as charlamage.

Speaker 4 (00:05):
You don't you wants charlamade?

Speaker 2 (00:09):
Damn Solomine, who you giving dusky other day?

Speaker 3 (00:11):
Soon now.

Speaker 1 (00:14):
Well, sexy Ran. Donkey of Today for Friday, June twenty
first goes to American Airlines. If you haven't heard, they
have recently put several employees on leave after American Airlines
was sued by three black New Yorkers who were kicked
off a JFK bound flight over a body odor complaint.
I don't told y'all stop playing around in this heat. Okay,

(00:35):
just because your deodorant says it can last for forty
eight hours doesn't mean you should test it, all right,
A lot of y'all like to use that stone crystal
deodorant and you have to whet the top of the stone,
and then after you wet the stone, you use it,
you put it on. Well, maybe y'all need to put
more water on the stone because something not working, something
not connecting. But I don't want to victimize the victims here, Okay,
No matter how much musty people make us feel like

(00:57):
we're the victim because of their bo Let's not let
that deflect from the fact that these men were done
were done wrong. Okay, Now, apparently there was a group
of black men on the American Airlines flight and one of
the flight attendants complained of an offensive body oder. Why
am I telling you all this story. Let's go to
CBS News for the report. Please, we're the only ones
getting taken off.

Speaker 5 (01:16):
The This video at the center of a newly filed
lawsuit against American Airlines appears to show a number of
black men after they've been removed from a flight, allegedly
due to a complaint about offensive body oders. As flight
eight thirty two from Phoenix to New York was finishing
boarding in January, American employees removed eight black men from

(01:36):
the plane. They were not traveling together, weren't seated next
to each other, did not know each other, and appeared
to be the only black men on the flight. For
plaintiffs Emmanuel Gene, Joseph Alvin Jackson, and Xavier Vial, flight
eight thirty two was a connection they'd taken an earlier
flight from Los Angeles without issue. The lawsuit claims, over
the course of about an hour. The men were kept

(01:57):
in the jetway and then moved to the gate area,
where they were told they'd be rebooked on another flight
to New York later that day, and alleges an American
employee indicated the complaint about offensive body odor had come
from a white male flight attendant, but when another flight
to New York couldn't be found, they weren't putting back
on the same plane.

Speaker 4 (02:16):
Had to go back on the plane with everybody looking
at us, you know, very uncomfortable.

Speaker 1 (02:21):
I knew that as soon as I get on that plane,
a sea of white faces, we're going to be looking
at me and blaming me for their late flight of
an hour. I had to get back on the plane,
everybody looking at them like they stink.

Speaker 2 (02:34):
Okay.

Speaker 1 (02:35):
My question, why is it only three black people sowing?
If it was eighty y'all, it should be eight lawsuits.
The pain and suffering that you all went through because
somebody labeled you stink. Don't you ever play with me
like that in your mother f in life? Okay, because
the problem with think people is a lot of times
they don't even know they stink.

Speaker 2 (02:51):
Okay.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
I know you'd be around them and you'd be like,
stop playing. If I can smell you, you can smell you.
But that's not always the case, which is why labeling
some when stink when they not is so offensive Because
now you got me thinking that I just might smell okay,
sniffing under my arm, smelling my shirt, trying to figure
out is it me who is the keeper of the funk?
Now what's crazy is none of these men knew each other.

(03:13):
You just heard the news report. They were all complete
strangers and they were all sitting separately. So this flight
attendant singled out these eight passengers, which is even more
egregious because if you smelled somebody on the plane and
then randomly went around the plane just picking people, you
look stink, You look like you smell. Oh, you definitely spoiled.
Matter of fact, you over there, get your rank ass

(03:34):
up too. How you're gonna make all of us get
up out of our seats and then get into a
stink single file line, all because you profiling us for
having bodyoda. I wish I would be on a plane
and someone complained about somebody being stinker, then a flight
attendant just randomly assumes it was me. Don't you ever
play with me? Like that, and your mother up and
life and what makes no sense about this story? What
makes no sense? You remove me because you said I

(03:56):
fit the description of someone with bodyoder, but you couldn't
find them another flight, so you ordered them to reboard.
Now let's just say some of them did smell. Why
recycle the funk? You was just gonna put them on
another flight and hope nobody's nose was working. See, we
don't know how to solve problems in this country. If
I'm on an airline and you removed me for being stink,
are allegedly stink, then you have to offer me a

(04:19):
free hotel room from old Spice body wash and a
new flight. You can't just point out the problem and
then offer me no solution, especially since you then profiled
me for being pungent. Now we told you all these
people were black, right, Well, I don't know if y
aall remember in twenty seventeen, the NAACP warn black travelers
to avoid American airlines, citing multiple instances of a discrimination,

(04:42):
But clearly y'all didn't listen. Now, the NAACP did lift
the advisory nearly nine months later, but the fact they
had to tell us this in the first place, should
be a red flag. Okay, the NAACP told you all
American Airlines was foul, but yet you're still riding American Airlines.
Now they calling you foul as in foul smelling. American
airl Line CEO Robert Issam said, I am incredibly disappointed

(05:03):
by what happened on that flight and the breakdown of
our procedures. Well, what is the procedure when somebody stinks
on the flight? Robert said? It contradicts our values. We
fell short of our commitments and failed our customers in
this incident. This is terrible because you can't just pick
and choose who you think is stink Because what if
none of them, you know, didn't smell bad, which I

(05:23):
don't think, which they probably didn't. But what if none
of them didn't smell bad. But this flight attendant isn't
used to the smell of shade butter. You know what
I'm saying, Coco Butter. What if he got neo Nazi
nostrils and he's simply not used to personal fragrance oils
that a lot of us beautiful black people wear. And
now listen, okay, we all know from time to time

(05:45):
people definitely do stink. But the chances of there being
eight stink black people in one space, nah, I don't
think that those chances are too high. Okay, that usually
only happens in sports. But the chances of there being eight,
not one, not two, but eight random black people that
all got body oder, it's ridiculous for one simple reason.
I don't care if you're a black grandmother, black grandmother,

(06:07):
black father, black aunts, black uncles, Okay, black adults period,
all preach the same message. Make sure you wash your ass.

Speaker 3 (06:17):
Okay.

Speaker 1 (06:17):
We would taught young not to be the stink ass
kid in school. So there is no way eight random
black people were on the plane stinking at the same
damn time. It's just not possible. American Airlines pay these people. Okay,
you're basically called them filthy in front of the world.
Now make them filthy rich. Please give American Airlines the
sweet sounds of the Hamiltons.

Speaker 3 (06:38):
You all, oh the day, oh the day?

Speaker 2 (06:53):
Ye all right, Nobody, nobody living, nobody gonna tell this
nigga that I reported the same.

Speaker 4 (07:03):
Story like a week ago, weeks ago.

Speaker 2 (07:06):
Yeah, that's crazy.

Speaker 4 (07:09):
Nobody he was he was yo hella commentary too, Like
he remembered or maybe he don't.

Speaker 1 (07:18):
We well, the well, the update is the CEO released
the statement yesterday, Jess Hilarius. That's why they're getting Donkey
Day because they're admitting that they put their they put
their employees on leaves, or they're admitting that they did wrong.
So hopefully this leads to those people that are suing
getting paid.

Speaker 2 (07:36):
Yeah.

Speaker 4 (07:36):
But I but the question that you said, I still
want to know that if it was adaven, why are
only three of them suing?

Speaker 2 (07:43):
And the partly they didn't even know each other.

Speaker 1 (07:47):
They didn't even know each other. They should be coming
together the formal lawsuits.

Speaker 2 (07:50):
Yeah, yep, Yeah, I don't know.

Speaker 4 (07:53):
They three, the three that are doing they do kind
of favor a little bit. But I ain't want to
say that because then, you know, I ain't want to
be on the white side of what they do. Look
like you No, but they do kind of favor a
little bit though.

Speaker 1 (08:03):
But yeah, all right, well, thank you for the But
did they all smell alike? Did they all smell it like?
Is the question?

Speaker 2 (08:13):
My Jesus.

Speaker 1 (08:15):
All right, well, thank you for that.

Speaker 3 (08:16):
