Our Idea on the Current Event

Post by Admin on 21.04.17 16:24

A United passenger was forcibly removed from a flight from Chicago to Louisville after he refused to voluntarily give up his seat.

Fellow passengers on the flight posted jarring videos late Sunday night of uniformed men dragging the man off of the flight after what United called an “overbook situation.”

“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United,” said United CEO Oscar Munoz in a statement Monday afternoon. “I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly with him to address and resolve this situation.”

Audra D. Bridges and Tyler Bridges posted video of the incident:



“Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked,” a United spokesperson told Yahoo News when asked about the incident. “After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate.”

Bridges and Anspach gave similar accounts of the incident to the Louisville Courier-Journal and on Twitter: United had overbooked the flight and was looking for four volunteers to leave the plane in order to send four United crew members to Louisville. Passengers were allowed to board and United offered $800 to anyone who gave up their seat, but when there were no volunteers, United said a computer would randomly select four passengers. The man in the video claimed to be a doctor who had patients to see in the morning and refused to leave, at which point airport security dragged him off the plane.

The United Contract of Carriage lays out specific policies for passengers who are not allowed to board overbooked flights but doesn’t cite policy for removing passengers who are already seated on such flights.

The videos started a social media firestorm, the second in as many months for the airline. It drew criticism in March after refusing to allow two female passengers to board because they were wearing leggings. In an email statement, United told Yahoo Style that the travelers could not board because their pants “were not in compliance with dress code policy for company benefit travel.” According to the spokesperson, “There are different rules for these privileges because people are flying for free.” It also noted that regular-paying customers are welcome to wear leggings aboard its flights.

Guys, how did your country report this news in your country's media? And how does the news report make you to think about this event??

读了这篇新闻报道,我的感受是:这就是美国人的文明和人道主义吗,做非常的野蛮,霸道。

After reading this news report, I have to question the so-called civilization and humanism in the U.S. society.
This is so rude and barbaric!

Chinese Internet Users' Response 02:

随机抽取?

怎么抽出来的都是亚洲人啊?有本事抽一个黑人或者中东人出来啊?

就是觉得我们亚洲人好欺负吧?

The airline said that they pick people randomly?

Then why all the people that got kicked out were Asians? Did they dare to pick an African or a Muslim?

This is racism against Asian. They picked Asians because we Asians are weak and easy to bully.

这不只是亚裔问题,这还是资本主义的阶级歧视,你坐头等舱他们就不敢了。

This is not only a discrimination against Asian. This is also a discrimination against working class people in the capitalist society. If you are in the business class, they won't dare to treat you like this.

如果那位医生不是华人也许我不会发声,但是我想说的是,我的族人不收尊重是组要我们每一个人尽一份力的。很多台湾人或者香港人经常说自己不是Chinese,但要知道不管你承不承认,我们的命运都是绑在一起的。希望大家都加油,华人的未来需要我们自己努力!

If the doctor is not a Chinese, I won't care about him. But now I want to say that all Chinese should fight to make our Chinese fellows be respected. A lot of Taiwanness and Hongkongness say that they are not Chinese, but even they do not want to admit this heritage, they are still affected by such heritage. I hope that everyone can fight for a bright future for Chinese people!

呃... 他不是中国人!不知道你们一群中国人在高潮什么!这正义伸张得好博爱啊,还是管好我们中国人自己的事吧。

Hey, guys... It turns out that he is not a Chinese. So why do you guys feel so angry about it? It is not our business.

人家代表的是亚裔好伐,中国人也是亚裔的一部分,现在不反击将来会被欺负得更惨的!

Even though he's not a Chinese, he represents all of the Asians, okay? China is a part of Asia. If we do not fight back now, we will be bullied even more harshly in the future.

ユナイテッド航空の中国人医師引きずり下ろしの映像。
何てことするのと叫んでいる女性もいる一方で、平然と見ているだけの白人もたくさんいて恐ろしくなったのは私だけですか?
今のアメリカの縮図を見た気がした。
抽選で選ばれた4人すべてアジア人らしいですね。あれだけ白人が座っているのに4人ともアジア人なのですね。
他人事ではないです。そこに日本人が座っていたら日本人がどけと言われたということ。

ここがすごいよ日本人。
卑屈になれと言っているのでなく、日本人も差別対象のアジア人だとの認識を少しは持ったほうがいいということ

About the video on United Airline dragging a Chinese doctor out of the Plane.
Although there was a lady crying "what are you doing," there were also a lot of white people sitting there with their indifferent facial expression. Am I the only one who feels scared about that?
I think the video let us view the American society today.
The four people who were chosen are all Asians. Even though there are so many white people sitting there, the four people who got picked are "accidentally" all Asians???
This is not a discrimination that is only related to Chinese. If a Japanese was sitting there, that Japanese people would also got picked!

Therefore, it is important to us, my Japanese fellows. Face the reality and recognize that we Japanese are also a group of people that is discriminated against in the global context.

Taiwanness Internet Users' Response 01:


憑心而論亞裔遭歧視是不是中國害的?

大家都知道中國就是出了名的流氓國家
文化水平低
習慣很糟糕
沒有禮貌
沒有比別人厲害,害愛裝*

說真的,亞裔歧視是因為中國人惡名昭著
歐美人又分不清亞洲人大家來自哪裡
所以因為討厭中國 加深歧視
是不是中國害了亞洲大家?

Don't you guys think that Asians are discriminated against because of China?

As we all know, China is a rogue state
Chinese people have low education level
Their habits are bad
They do not know what polite is
They are not more excellent than anyone, but they think they are.

So, I think Asians are discriminated against because of Chinese.
The people in America do not know how to tell Asians apart.
They don't like Chinese people, so they don't like Asians.
Therefore, Isn't China the one that hinders Asians from receiving respect?

Taiwanness Internet Users' Response 02:

替歧視者辯解並跟著嘲笑 把責任推給其他被歧視者
就是因為亞裔有很多像你這樣的人 才會被歧視

Defending the racists and laughing at other Asians

shifing the blame onto other people who are discriminated against.

It is because there are so many Asian like you that we are discriminated against.

Actually, we should blame the ancestor of Asians. They are inferior to the ancestor of other races.

Okay... Guys, your ideas are all very interesting.

Also, just a reminder:

It has turned out that the doctor is not a Chinese but a Vietnamese.

You cannot beat someone up then just say I'm sorry. The man is old so the airlines don't appear at all human. They are also so greedy.
