*Singer Kelis got the surprise of her life when a man at a UK airport called her a “slave” and a “disgusting Nigerian.”

Kelis twittered, “A red faced sweaty “man” (I use the word loosely here) started calling me a slave and told me to call him sir…

“He called me Kunta Kinte and ranted and raved some more. The man behind the passport desk laughed, shook his (head).”

Kelis tweeted that over 50 people said nothing.

“Didn’t flinch. We all know I’m no saint, so I retaliated. Not the way I wanted to, or how that pig deserved. But #1 my gorgeous baby boy was literally sitting on my hip and #2 I’m a believer.  And we are better. Supposed to be anyway.  It made me think.  This person was approximately a 50 year old English man.”

Kelis also tweeted that she is in London all the time and that the racial issues in the UK are “disgusting.”

“Decades behind progression because everything is swept under the rug.  People don’t talk about it.  People don’t fight it.”
