Read what happened here:

//http://www.salon.com/2013/07/04/the_n_word_on_the_4th_of_july/

Of course we'll get the usual conservatives on here defending this woman because it was a private tweet. So what? Her hateful tweet shows what's in her heart which is prejudiced hate. I am 99% certain this was a conservative republican that more than likely texted to another conservative republican.

Sounds to me like she was being a little too nosy....

That said, i'm sure that she's hurt, but hey, what can you do?

Well, she did more than what I would have. I would have ignored the pos throughout the trip. I just like the fact that she showed her status to the woman and said hoped that she didn't teach that kind of attitude to her sons. Her only reply was "I don't". She probably felt like fool.

If someones thighs were so large that they spilled over onto my seat I'd call them fat too.....

Sounds like this <ahem> african-american/black female has a major attitude problem with non african-american/black i.e; white people to begin with.....

When an african-american/black person uses the "n" word that's perfectly OK, but god forbid someone else uses it,

OH THE HORROR!

Keep dreaming.

You wouldn't have said a damn thing. Gimme a break.

At best, you may have said it to someone AFTER you got off the plane. But you certainly wouldn't have told this woman what you thought...and you know it.

Considering the cost of tickets, I'm amazed that fat people in small seats on planes isn't even more of an issue than it is. To pay hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars for a tiny space, and have that space invaded by a stranger's fat, is unacceptable. I don't know how the airlines get away with this.

Fat people didn't just start flying last week.

What in the **** does this have to do with politics?

Revelations of dozens of nations colluding to spy on their own, and each others', citizens and youre concerned about a nobody racist woman.

WHY.
