I have a problem with the amount paid out, and I'm iffy about whether it should've happened or not.
On one hand, I believe its within the rights of the airline to deny anyone to fly on their flights that they believe will be or cause a disturbance or is in violation with one of their r ules.
On the other, this would only work if this was written somewhere, even in the fine print, that this person had prior to this point. If it wasn't, then tehy were in the wrong.
You can't say this is a discrimination thing unless you can somehow PROVE that they did it only because he was of arabic descent. Businesses get "innocent until proven" guilty just like citizens do, and assuming it was done because of race shouldn't fly in court. If someone from that same airport, on that same airline, was previously allowed onto the plane with a similar shirt and customers complained and the airline did nothing...THEN it'd be descrimination.
That's your opinion. You have absolutely zero proof to back up this is the case so its a baseless assertion, showing bigotry of your own against anyone that would dare to enforce a rule against someone of arabic descent.This isn't a dress code violation, this is the fact that a Muslim wore something in Arabic. If it was a white guy wearing the same T-Shirt, this would not have happened.
And can you prove that this was the case? Or are you just mouthing off?Dress codes are for everyone, not just Muslims.
Now, in regards to public opinion...yes, you can say that people have to prove those saying it was discrimination wrong. But people can equally say that those claiming discrimination must prove it as well.
So far there is ZERO proof he was discriminated against because of his race.
Were you the one blathering on about racial segregation and giving backup to those talking of discriminating against people without an ounce of proof and nothing but hypothetical theories about something with nothing to back it up? Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter becuase that's what you believe.Were you the one that said racial segregation on private property is okay, or was that someone else? Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter because that's what you believe.
