No it wasn't racism, it was bipolar disorder on the part of the airport employee. That's been reported elsewhere.

Bipolar touched off by some sort of anti-Chinese bias. After all, she did go for the only two Chinese guys in the group. She'd really be a mess if she worked in SFO, YVR, LAX or SEA.

Of course, it’s Trump’s fault :confused: according to the comment in the article

Sounds more like a case of crazy than racism to me. It doesn’t sound like the employee should have access to the secure area or the customers for that matter.

But....was she in uniform???


For those on different wave length....a reference to TSA's KCM restrictions change.

hate to tell you that bipolar does not cause racism when off their meds.

could be that she was bipolar, off meds, AND racist

My wife’s sister is bipolar. I never know whether I’m the good brother-in-law, or the evil one.

If someone has a serious mental illness, you just need to stop there and not try to make into something it's not.

Heard it was a flight attendant who is “known to be bat **** crazy”. That was told to me by one of my crews. So is it indeed a FA or was it a gate agent?

I take back my previous statement. I was thinking of something else, not bipolar disorder. sorry.

You always jump to the racism accusation.

OTZ Eagle requested 29L in EWR so he could get to Captain D’s faster on a min rest overnight.....told me “how we do it in the Boeing 180’s”.
