My reply would have been "And you're fat, ugly and can't write English correctly" then handed the note to a supervisor.

Unless someone wants to go the culture route saying she was just a sassy black woman being her sassy self. And that kind of thing isn't a big deal where she comes from. But I doubt that will happen.

If this had been a white male agent doing the same exact thing to black female passenger it would be a major headline on every news station and he would probably be accused of racism/hate speech/white supremacy/sexual harassment and get a load of death threats, and his life would be ruined.

Not the point at all, obviously. Do you think the contractor should have just given her a pass on this? Whether she meant it as a harmless joke or not (maybe she was bored and just trying to liven things up???), that's just not how it works.

I have to say, the guy was really classy about it.

She was probably bored. Not justification of course. Every airport checkout I've been to had miles of people. I would love to catch a flight at that airport where I can just stroll in with no waiting. No notes please.

I guess whoever was having fun behind the insta-porn machine wasn't happy with the specimens they were being sent.

I'm not sure what being bored has to do with being cruel to a stranger. I don't see any connection to even suppose boredom was a factor in such behavior unless she is a sociopath.

I suspect she is just a bully and a heartless person. And maybe, just maybe, intentionally took a shot at a harmless looking white male because of some bias. Would she have done it to a brother?

Ten to one the incels pick up on this as they believe women hate men they find unattractive and enjoy to see them suffer, claiming to have had experiences like this where a woman just went up and told them they were ugly. I didn't believe it but maybe it is true.

It is sad that this is what we have come to. Where you have a pretty darn good idea of the basic identifies of a victim and perp based on the collective outrage or lack thereof.

At least they fired the childish imbecile. Considering her race & gender that's an achievement these days.
