In America, the trend sadly continues of Black Americans not being able to live their lives without someone being in their business. This was the case for 21-year-old Lakeyjanay Bailey, a Colorado native. She flew into Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport, on a Frontier flight, according to The Grio.
Bailey traveled with her 4-year-old white adoptive sister, and that led to her being accused of sex trafficking. When Bailey left the gate, police approached her, and began to question the child and her relationship with Bailey.
“There were two police officers, and they came up to me and said, ‘Is it okay if we talk to you? The whole time they were talking with us, people kept staring at us, whispering and stuff.”
Police soon spoke to Bailey’s mother, and a social worker, to get the facts. They even went with Bailey and the child to baggage claim.
“A concern was raised during the flight by another passenger who was sitting near the woman and child and suspected human trafficking,” said Frontier in a statement. “That passenger approached the flight crew with those concerns and subsequently completed a written report during the flight to document her observations.”
Bailey and her family now have a lawsuit coming, against Frontier. She believes that this situation went down due to her race.
