Rebecca, traveling while Black is so difficult. She loud-capped you, accused you of stealing, and caused a ruckus all because you were a Black woman. How shameful that she could not admit her error. Instead, panicked because she was racist-- they see us as public miscreants. Sorry you had to endure this very unpleasant flight.

It's so absurd that she would accuse you anyway. In the modern era, everyone has a phone and there is nothing special about hers. She would not have accused a white woman of this. The misogynoir was on full effect during this incident.

It's not fair and I'm glad you called it out. We deserve better but racism makes them see us as subhumans, lacking morals.
