Default Another self-righteous pilot makes the news

Tamar Braxton Gets ?Ridiculed By A Pilot For Flying While Black On Delta,? According To Video Posted By Her Sister Towanda | Celebrity Insider

Why oh why are we still going In the back to talk to disruptive passangers? Stay in the flight deck and to leave. Call someone who is trained to handle it.

Christ, people! Just stay in the damn cockpit (flight deck, whatever the hell you want to call it) and shut the door. You're guaranteed to stay off YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc that way! Let Customer Service handle it. It's not the 1960s anymore!

And...of course, he had his hat.

Not a race issue. Captain Cartman requires people of all colors to respect his authoriTAY.

And what preceded that interaction? Was she causing a scene? Did she ask to speak with the captain?? I highly doubt the captain went down the isle looking for the first black woman to harass?

There are no shortage of captains out there that shy away from throwing their title around. Especially at Delta.

Without the context of the interaction, anyone that's asserting the captain was in the right, or in the wrong, is doing so ignorantly.

I'm not saying he's right or he's wrong, but we all know how this ends. In this day and age, stay in your seat and shut the cockpit door. Stay the hell off the cameras!

I agree, donít leave the cockpit, but assuming the passenger was not obeying the fa instructions I have no problem with what he said or how he said it. Definitely nothing racist in that video.

I wouldnít go back there just cause of this Iíd juat kick her off the plane. Itís very simple. Tell your ground security person you arenít flying the plane with her on board since she clearly isnít listening to the FAs
