Nia Long Explains Being 'racially profiled' on American Airlines Flight

Actress Nia Long details her recent unsettling in-flight encounter with an American Airlines flight attendant. Long says, "I got a huge apology, so thank you American Airlines for standing by and standing up and being responsible for your flight attendant's behavior. So, I do appreciate that." She explains what unfolded while on the flight. “This flight attendant was rude to another young black woman who was pregnant and who had a toddler, who was sitting in the main cabin who came to the front of the plane to use the restroom. She said you may not use the restroom up here, you need to go back there. And immediately I was just like where are we in the world where you're not going to allow this woman to use the restroom? I don't care what cabin she's sitting in, it doesn't matter. Do you not see what's happening in the world. Where is your humility and your sense of integrity for humanity. She was pregnant and had a toddler. It just doesn't make any sense. So at some point unions need to reevaluate the way that they manage their employees, and corporations have to be responsible for that behavior. We have to change the way that we're thinking. So really what it boiled down to for me is, I felt like we were both being racially profiled, because she was rude to me too."

Full interview will air on Friday, July 17.
