6302: Safe And Insecure.
Flying through a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• A Muslim family was kicked off an AirTran flight after other passengers reacted to hearing family members talking about the safest place to sit on the plane. Despite being cleared by FBI agents, the family claims the airline refused to rebook them. Looks like AirTran was just answering the family’s initial question—the safest place to sit is on another airline’s plane.
• Bratz are back. Despite an initial ruling ordering Bratz be removed from stores, a judge decided such an act might adversely affect retailers, and allowed for a modification. This scenario is starting to feel like the alleged feud between Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie.
