Air China Apologizes For Racist Magazine Warning About Blacks And Indians
As much weave and General Tso money as Black folks put into Chinese pockets you’d think we could get a lil’ respect, but alas…
Earlier this week we reported that Air China was under fire for warning tourists to stay away areas populated by Black and brown folks. Apparently, they’ve finally decided to apologize reports VoaNews:
Air China has apologized for safety tips to London-bound travelers that have been called racist and that sparked outrage among some British politicians, one of whom invited airline officials to see for themselves how safe his multi-ethnic district is.
On Thursday, China’s flagship state-run airline issued a statement regarding the incident, calling some of the commentary featured in cabin magazines, “Wings of China,” inappropriate and not representative of the company’s views.
“London is generally a safe place to travel,” safety tips in the seat-pocket magazine say in both Chinese and English. “However, precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people.”
Another tip: “We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when traveling.”
