BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 27: A retrofitted Lufthansa plane equipped with medical isolation facilities for Ebola cases arrives for a media presentation at Tegel airport on November 27, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The airplane, dubbed the "Robert Koch" and commisoned by the German government, will serve as a MedEvac option for health workers who are in western Africa participating in the international effort to stem the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

Dr. Tisha Rowe and her son were waiting to take off on a flight from Jamaica to Miami when a flight attendant escorted her off the plane and told her she’d have to “cover up” if she wanted to get back on.

Rowe ended up flying home wrapped in a blanket. Although American Airlines has since apologized, Rowe — who believes she was singled out because she’s black — says she wants answers. “There were definitely other passengers on the flight wearing tropical attire, short shorts,”

Rowe said in a Thursday appearance on Good Morning America. “One was also a mother also traveling with a child, and she said, ‘No way! Well, your shorts are longer than mine and nobody has said anything to me!'” Rowe’s message to the airlines: “If you are going to have a dress code, it should be applied equally to every person, to every shape, to every race.”

I personalty think her outfit wasn’t that bad.
