Perhaps it’s due to the influx of mobile phones with the ability to record video, or maybe there’s some other reason(s), but we are noticing more and more clips of fights with racist undertones to them.
As a media company that predominantly focuses on sports fights (with a healthy dose of streetfights and other assorted madness), we don’t like to get involved in politics but every so often, a video comes out that has someone behaving so abhorrently, it’s only right to say something.
That’s definitely the case with this clip…
In this shocking video, an older white man – who appears to be intoxicated – is standing on a moving bus, waiting to get off, and becomes irate after the bus driver appears to miss his stop.
On closer inspection, it seems as though the old drunk simply forgot to pull the cord that tells the driver to stop but rather than accept his mistake and get off at the next stop, he decides the mercilessly berate the driver.
It doesn’t take long for his prejudices to boil to the surface, however; soon ole drunkie tells the bus driver “I’ll fu*k you up, n*gger!”
From that point, the old drunk fella – who is inexplicably dressed like an extra from the TV show ‘Scrubs’ – unleashes a torrent of racial abuse.
In between stumbling around like a member of an out-of-sync marching band and trying to pull his bag through a clear perspex window that physics says ‘no’ to, the guy continues to lob n-bombs at the bus driver and even tells him that he’s going to have him fired.
Incredibly, the driver keeps his cool and continues along his route (no doubt hoping that the maniac would be getting off soon) but his cool is lost the moment the drunken fella decides to spit at him.
That wasn’t a step too far, it was a goddamn country mile too far and there’s no way the driver was going to let him get away with such blatant disrespect.
He calmly parks the bus, locks the door so the racist can’t get away and begins to throw his hands in a precise and brutal manner.
He catches the old-timer with a couple of good shots and crumples him like a poorly-worded draft of a love letter. One onlooker can be heard shouting words of encouragement to the bus driver and assuring him that he would be a witness if required.
The bus driver actually shows restraint and stops the beatdown as the video comes to an end. Honestly, all things considered, that old dude got off lightly.
Freedom of speech is one of the oldest and grandest traditions of modern democracy but freedom of speech does not mean freedom to be an assh*le and not face any consequences.
Also, if you’re a grown up and spit on another grown up, expect to have your lights turned off!
