Let’s set the scene.
Here is how the Hilton Rio De Janeiro describes their hotel on Trip Advisor.
Enjoy the best of Rio de Janeiro at Hilton Copacabana. Our hotel offers the largest number of ocean view rooms in the city, two outdoor swimming pools overlooking Copacabana Beach, beach service with exclusive activities to our guests, a wellness Spa, Fitness Center, restaurant and three bars. Relax and enjoy sunset from our rooftop Isabel Lounge while having a drink. For both leisure and corporate guests, we are conveniently located near to most of Rio attractions, close to downtown and airports. Our meeting space offers 36 flexible rooms, perfect for small meetings to large conferences and social events.
I think there will be some different reviews after people see this video.
A black man is a Hilton’s Diamond Member. All that means is he gets to go special line to check-in or if he needs any service. This is not uncommon for any hotel in the world. As a reporter, I am a gold and diamond member at several hotels just because I travel a lot.
You will see a drunk white woman in a bikini and her husband get upset because they aren’t diamond members, and instead of taking that up with the hotel, they lash out at the black man who is just minding his business.
The drunk white woman puts her hands on the black man, and to his credit, he didn’t knock her out but did knock out her husband COLD.
The white woman shows no concern for her husband laid out on the floor and continues to fight hotel staff and tries to get at the black man.
This is what it is like being black and having to deal with racist white people on a daily basis, it is exhausting, and my advice to white men is to control your ladies unless you want to get knocked out.
