This is a sad story about musician Vance Gilbert, who was utterly charming when he played last year or the year before at a local outdoor concert. He was removed and then put back on a United flight for the other day for… reading a book about 1940s Polish aviation?
It’s hard to move past the conlcusion he makes that he was guilaty of flying while black (and reading antique aviation books), but it’s also a larger symptom of the crazy paranoid era we live in. Obviously, some paranoia is justified, but this?
