And the Black Book Club isn't racist? And the passengers complaining have no rights? I bet if you started a White Book Club that would be racist! America, don't be afraid to say what needs to be said. Discrimination against White's has been an issue for years now and needs to be stopped. Any form of racism is wrong. Mistakes were made in the past on everyone's part and should be left for dead. We can never move forward if we're always dragging our past with us!
