MIAMI - The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has issued a travel advisory, warning African-American travelers to be careful when flying with American Airlines.

The advisory potentially has major implications for places like Miami International Airport, where American Airlines has a dominant presence because it operates a hub there.

NAACP officials issued the travel advisory against the airline because of what they call "a pattern of disturbing incidents" reported by African-American passengers.

The organization documented at least four confrontations over the past few months that they believe show a culture of racial bias or racial insensitivity.

One of the cases allegedly happened a week and a half ago at MIA and involved a woman named Tamika Mallory, who was in South Florida for a music conference.

"According to Mallory, a pilot overheard her frustrations with a gate agent at the end of their conversation and retaliated after she boarded her flight to head back home.

"He said, 'Yeah, you're going to get yourself a one-way ticket off of this plane.' I still didn't say anything. I still did not say anything. I walked away. I went to my seat. I sat down and I was crying. The next thing I know, my name was called twice -- full name, from the loud speaker," Mallory said. "

When did pilots become triggered snowflakes?

From what I saw, this is all over a seat assignment. She got a middle seat and was pissed about it.

Now that is just plain ridiculous! These people are delusional.

The Supreme court clearly said that laws designed to prevent racial discrimination are no longer necessary.

Because "things have changed dramatically" in the South and the "country has changed" !

And you know just talking about it is what is causing these problems.

So thanks NAACP (and Obama).
