Russell Means Sues airlines

Did guys hear about Russel, from what I heard from the news here is the scoop. This is from KOB-TV's website.

Native activist kicked off flight
Russell Means at the Sunport

Last Update: 08/29/2005 8:40:19 AM
By: Reed Upton

A well-known Native American activist was kicked off an American Airlines flight over the weekend and contends it was because of racism.

Russell Means says a flight attendant became upset with him because he didn’t look at her when she asked if he was capable of the responsibilities associated with sitting next to an emergency exit.

“I believe it’s still ongoing racism in America against anyone who is brown,” said Means when asked about the incident.

The flight attendant ordered Means off the flight, but he refused. All the passengers on the flight were then deplaned and when they reboarded, Means wasn’t allowed on.

American Airlines officials say they have no record of the incident but they have zero tolerance for racism. They say anyone seated next to an emergency exit who didn’t respond to a flight attendant would be asked to move.

Means says he plans a “multi-million” dollar lawsuit against the airline.
