The British Virus of racism manifests itself in many forms. It shows up in who we are, who walks behind you on a dark street late at night. It shows up in what is deemed professional and unprofessional conduct and language. Wherever and to whom it shows up, it’s no less a symptom of the British virus of racism that affects us all.
This time, the British virus of racism manifests itself in a flight attendant (Joanne Wickendon) who was getting ready to resume her shift on British Airways (BA) flight to Abuja.
Seen on a Snapchat video that has gone viral, the stewardess dressed in BA uniform oozes out a bagful of racial epithets on Nigerian passengers. Listen to her “All the Nigerians are gonna be there asking for f****** upgrades because they haven’t got enough leg room because their B**s are in their way. Big d**** like this swinging from side to side.”

“And I’m here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow life jacket, point out the exits, hand out chicken or beef, what sort of Friday night is this for me?
