SO BE IT...  :-) Hehehe!
A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The woman said "I cannot sit here next to this black man." The fight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat." After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated "Ma'am, there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class." About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated "The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class." Before the woman could say anything, the attendant gestured to the black man and said, "Therefore sir, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person." Passengers in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.
If you are against racism, share this.

The Buddha to a haughty brahmin on out-castes:
"Not by birth (race or skin-color) is one an outcast; 
not by birth (race or skin-color) is one a Noble! 
By behaviour only one becomes an outcast, 
by behaviour alone one becomes a Noble"

Reference: Vasala Sutta: Discourse on Outcasts: Sutta nipata 116-142

Not by birth is one pure and superior, but by purity of one's bodily actions, speech and mind, is one pure and superior.

NEW CAUSE:

Karuna

“Karuna works in India, where hundreds of millions of people suffer lives of grinding poverty and oppression, excluded from the region’s economic boom. 'Low caste’ and tribal communities struggle as landless day labourers, in constant danger of violence and exploitation, with little or no recourse to the law or police. At best their children receive a few years of substandard schooling. Karuna works with community based organisations that are helping thousands of people to escape the hell of poverty and discrimination and take their rightful place in society. ”
