After Stealing Woman’s 1st Class Seat, Texas Democrat Plays the Race Card (Details)

When in doubt, play the race card – a common Democrat tactic.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) was recently bumped up to first class by United Airlines even though a woman had previously paid for the seat.

According to Sheila, she’s the victim of racism in this instance.

From New York Daily News:

A passenger on a Washington, D.C.-bound flight accused United Airlines of giving up her first-class seat to a Texas lawmaker.

The airline then threatened to pull her from the plane entirely after she snapped a photo of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, the woman told the Houston Chronicle.

“It was just so completely humiliating,” Jean-Marie Simon, 63, told the Chronicle of the flight.

She was returning to Washington, D.C., on Dec. 18 — the last part of a return trip from Guatemala — when she went to board a connecting flight in Houston.

Here’s Jackson-Lee playing the race card, via New York Post:

“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” the Texas Democrat wrote in a post. “This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people.”

“But in the spirit of this season and out of the sincerity of my heart, if it is perceived that I had anything to do with this, I am kind enough to simply say sorry,” Jackson Lee continued. “But as an African American, I know there are too many examples like this all over the nation.”


Democrats are best at dividing people based on race, and Jackson-Lee is a major proponent.

The mainstream media will choose to ignore this story. Even if they did report, they’d more than likely side with the Congresswoman.
