of course racism is dead. I would buy this guy several beers.

What was supposed to be a normal train ride in Chicago for Twitter user @raresoulx turned out to be the complete opposite. According to @raresoulx, a drunken white passenger on the train repeatedly called an elderly black man the n-word for 15 minutes. After being verbally accosted, the unidentified black man took matters into his own hands, literally. And it was, of course, captured on video.

even more tacky to have your ass handed too you and thrown off the subway by a old guy.
That poor old guy must have been hearing that crap since the day he was born, to be hearing it again at his age in 2016 on what was supposed to be a normal train ride must have really hurt. I guess alcohol really is liquid courage, how do you throw n-bombs at an old guy in a train full of black people?

The racist prick was actually pretty good looking, it sucks when the hot ones are ignorant bigots...

Wow, the hypocrisy in these comments is downright embarrassing.

Making fun of the victim of physical violence? Check.

Armchair quarterbacking and judging? Check.

Condoning and congratulating physical violence? Check.

All from those who like to think they're up in an ivory tower.

Racism sucks. Yes, it still exists. The guy is an ass. But there is never an excuse for words to result in violence.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

15 minutes of calling the guy the N-word, he was looking for a beat down, play stupid games/win stupid prizes.

Not much on violence solving problems but sometimes it is going to happen. It was not like he was attaking someone just for the hell of it.

The black guy was the victim. It was very well recorded what was going on.
And on that well recorded video, it clearly shows only one of them breaking the law.

It's amazing how you can twist that to claim that the one breaking the law was more the victim than the one who was beat.

That's some serious apologist logic there, congrats.

If it were an immediate response, I'd be calling out the black guy for losing his temper way too quickly. Everyone should be expected to keep their cool in the heat of the moment.

But when it comes after 15 minutes of sustained insults? Yeah, the guy was begging for a smack upside the head.

so no one can ever do anything to a attack? just sit and take it for 15 minutes? I know the white guy was innocent and was just practicing free speech.

Oh, I absolutely agree with the stupid games/prizes.

I'm merely pointing out steve's hypocrisy, and how he continues to try to justify it.

I guess he has more in common with Trump than he'd like! ;)
true unlike trump who flaunts his dishonesty like a page of honor. even when called out he won't admit it.

Day drinking? How tacky.
Probably has a night job and a number of psychiatric disorders and/or superiority narcissistic complex...

Thankfully the one guy was drunk to make being beaten easier. I don't think he was in the right for assaulting, but it is a reaction to a premeditated, heinous action. I wouldn't charge the guy at all for throwing the punch, some issues are just so obvious that also go back a long way regarding history. It effectively became self-defense.

I never knew it was courageous to shout the N-word in a train full of innocent people that had done absolutely nothing to hurt others.

Yes, being really pwetty makes it OK to do. :rolleyes:

Everyone ages - society's superconscious fetish on what's pwetty is so out of tune with nature and reality, both of which are the same...

I'm sorry you've never had to deal with a lifetime of slurs, being looked at funny, taunting, being used and abused because of having different attributes. I have. While I've almost never responded with physical violence, I know full well what it's like to live a lifetime of nasty treatment.

If sufficiently provoked, people tend to respond to ambient environment. Violence has, historically and as response to provocation, been the last resort. Doesn't make it right, but people who say "he threw the first punch so he's the one that's wrong" never seem to give a damn about what led to the punch - which is typically so invasive, hurtful, or worse that no other reaction was available at the time. Violence almost never occurs without reason, so unless the man who threw it has a psychological disorder atypical for the general population-- oh, wait, he doesn't. A lifetime of dealing with slurs is not being a wimp. It's being fed up of being ill-treated so cruelly and for having done nothing wrong. The contextual qualifiers are as big and encompassing as a crystal clear cathedral.

So, what is the solution - what reset button needs to be pressed and how do we all move forward as a society? Now once we, you and me and everyone else, can come to a consensus in wiping the slate clean and starting anew equally and making more of an effort to work with one another as opposed to being slimy with superiority mindsets and taunting or abusing people because they're different...

Want solutions? Let's look at the big picture. Otherwise it's just as much empty talk to say "words to result in violence" when the people saying that probably haven't had it 1/1000th as bad as those who do get so wound up that they feel they have no recourse, especially after decades of purported improvements and then another incident comes in that puts more salt into the wound.

whatever. I ahve been in the old guys shoes I know what it is like to be bullied for a long time. the old guy was the victim but he changed that to the breaking the law. but the white guy was never the victim. sorry but trump followers would have rooted for the white guy.

You should win some sort of an award for word twisting.

1. I meant "liquid courage" in the sense that it gave him the balls to spout his racist BS, which he probably wouldn't have done sober. It's liquid courage and a truth serum all in one.

2. When did I even remotely say being pretty makes it ok? I just happened to mention that I found the racist prick to be physically attractive. And how did you manage to turn it into an ageism thing?

Mind. Boggled.

The guy who got beat up, was never the victim.

Again...
The guy who got beat up was never the victim.

What. The. Everloving. F***.

That is so incredibly delusional and apologistic, I don't even know what to say any more.

Stay classy, steve.

If you attack someone you loose the victim card. I bet the white guy was committing a hate crime. but hey lets feel sorry for the drunk puke he was such a good guy just minding his business. too bad I can't conform to what you think I should.

Either way, this is a weird story. He verbally assaulted him for 15 minutes and this is the result? Weird weird humans walking around. If someone is verbally assaulting me I'm leaving - not taking it for 15 minutes followed by pounding a low life into the ground on a subway.

Who is feeling sorry for the guy? All I'm doing is pointing out your hypocrisy, which you can't help but continue to double down and try and justify.

Keep up that apologist attitude.
