The plane suddenly starts to lose altitude and the captain made an announcement.
“Attention passengers. Due to an engine failure we are forced to dump all your baggage to lighten the plane. Unfortunately the plane is still too heavy so we have no chocie but to start throwing out passengers by alphabetical order until the plane is light enough. We will start with the A’s. Will all African Americans please jump out of the plane.”
The little boy starts getting up but his dad stopps him. “We are not African Americans.”
Shortly after another announcement is made. “Ladies and gentlemen we are still to heavy. We must move to the B’s. Will all blacks please jump out of the plane.”
The boy starts getting up but his dad stops him again. “No son we are not black.” Shortly after another announcement is made. “Ladies and gentlemen we are still to heavy, we must now move to the C’s. Will all colored people please jump out the plane.”
Again the boy starts getting up but his dad stops him. “No son were not colored.” “But dad, if we’re not African American, black, or colored, what are we?” “Son, today we’re niggers and we sure as hell aint jumping before the Mexicans!”
