Jill Tarlow, an airline passenger took a picture on June 9 of an unidentified white male dressed in female underwear that flew on a US Airways flight. A US Airways spokesperson in defending the decision to allow the white male to fly said, "We don't have a dress code policy, obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that's not appropriate...So if they're not exposing their private parts, they're allowed to fly." The attorney for DeShon Marman countered by pointing out that his client’s private parts were not exposed and video surveillance tape will prove it. After refusing to pull up his clothing, Marman was arrested for suspicion of trespassing, battery of a police officer and obstruction. Prosecutors have not filed charges in the Marman case and have until July 18 to do so.
The Marman case and similar cases involving clothing attire highlight the discrimination that mostly African American males and Muslims face when out in public. Philip Agnew, an African-American male was charged with trespassing after he refused to turn a hat he was wearing fully forward while patronizing the Epicenter located in uptown Charlotte June 2. Two African-American Muslims imams were removed from a Charlotte bound flight after an Atlantic Southeast Airlines pilot refused to allow the men back on the flight after they went through additional security screenings May 6.
I dont approve of EITHER of these as proper. It was said that DeShon Marman became upset and police were called. He was later arrested.
Ok, let's see it again;
What is the lesser of 2 evils?
