Old White Man Whups Young Black On City Bus

WARNING: LANGUAGE AND VIOLENCE



This happened yesterday here in Alameda County. Unbelievable! There is a whole lot going on in the video, but mostly a young Black man let's his mouth write a check that his behind returns, NSF. You don't really hear how the beef got started, something about shining shoes, but the White man retreated (wisely) to the front of the bus, with Black guy following. The girls near the Black guy, including the one with the camera, were clearly egging him on. Listening to them was a bad move for him. Black guy taps old White guy, who BTW is wearing an "I'm a M-F" t-shirt, and the rest is You Tube history.

So what do we think about this, and keep it clean please?

Too bad this elderly woman couldn't have done the same thing.

I saw someone say this reminded them of a Dave Chappelle skit, "When keepin' it real goes wrong".

Also, Mea Culpa to Mary King, AC Transit GM, and a sharp leader.

I'm guessing that this is what happened before the movie starts :
Tuff actin black guy gets on the bus , mumbling loudly about whatever and when he sits down opposite to the ol white boy he probably says very loudly something like "why black people gotta shine the shoes of the White Man(tm)!". Very loudly of course. At this point, what *usually* happens is that every nonblack person keeps quiet, most black people keep quiet and a few fellow blacks loudly agree with the rude tuff guy. Tuff guy probably does this pretty often and never has anyone given him any trouble you see. The problem is that this old white guy then says "oh yeah ? how much?" . The rest is youtube history :)

Update: Old White guy, Tom Bruso, was taken to the John George Psychiatric Pavilion for evaluation. Phone camera girl, Iyannaw Washington, posted her own You Tube to counter the well-deserved blogoshere pummeling she is getting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbsX5j-8T3Y&feature=player_embedded

Hello, I am surprised that someone would bring up his past considering we do not know anything about the black gentleman's history. if we knew he was arrested for aggravated assault or what have you would you bring that up? doubtful, but I actually applaud him for saying something about the shoe shining comment. I am disappointed you did not mention the girls who screamed "pinky" and "beat his white ass' with enthusiasm that is rare in every day life. Their eyes were probably wide, wide open and wanted to see that old man get hurt. Its quite ironic.

Undercover Black Man turned me onto this so thought I'd pop over and I must say, fair play to the old dude, if you walk the line you gotta' be able to get to the end, or no point in your starting out.

Ogunsiron's description seems pretty fair, although I myself am in the group with the old fellow, if people start chatting, my head goes up rather than down and I'm all for some banter.

My thoughts are that regardless of skin color, this is a case of "when an irresistible force meets an immovable object".

Both were unbalanced at the time.

Let's face it ... most of these kinds of Youtubes play into our lust for the "racial" element, whatever that may be within each of us ... if this had been two white men or two black men, it wouldn't have ended up on Youtube. The races, in conjunction with the ages of the two (everyone loves videos where the little old store clerk/geeky guy fights back and wins against the big bad robber/bully) got this prime time attention on Youtube. I watched some of the other Youtube videos answering the disingenuous "apology" of Iyannaw Washington and thought this gentleman said it best, albeit a bit animatedly (is that a word?) ... (he drops the "f" bomb a few times).

I also watched the video of the brother of "Soulja girl," the mentally ill young woman threatening the elderly lady on the train. Sometimes I think the line between "mental illness" and normalcy is very thin. I also think it sad that most of the time, the majority of people never get involved in a positive way ... they either pretend it's not happening or egg it on.

Taken to a psychiatric pavilion? Stand up to a wanna be thug, who punches you first(which makes a wanna be tough guy into a wanna be thug...aka assault), and be sent to a mental illness treatment facility...funny, really funny.

What happened to the thug? Oh that's right, nothing. Why isn't that punk thug being sent to a mental illness treatment facility?

R: The authorities took both into custody, the black guy went to the hospital, the White guy to a mental facility. This was based on assessed need. When/if charges show up I'm sure we will hear about it.

You never know what is on the other end, when you provoke....

black guy pulls out a gun, no one surprised.

White guy puts taunter in his place, EVERYONE surprised. The girls in the background made it worse (inciting violence).

When will people just STF up?

1. I think based on her own you tube video, Washington was the true douchebag here. She says she went out hoping to find something interesting to video, and then she is heard egging this on, I think maybe she is the one who incited this violence in the first place.

2. Ironically, it's a good thing for the white guy she was filming the whole thing, because while his acts may not be exemplary in total, she clearly films him walking to the front, and getting in the second punch but not the first.

Vill said...

Big surprise, a loud mouth black chick egging on this.

When western civilization collapses, it will be white liberals the first to be killed off in mass droves by blacks like this.

The SF/Bay Area needs to be nuked.

Sheena said...

This was disturbing to watch. He should've listened to the old african american woman when she said, "leave that white man alone!" And the two girls that were recording should've have followed her lead and encourage the two to stop fighting. Instead they instigated the entire fight. smh

dang I hate dialup.

Even after the kid has his nose busted and is bleeding all over he says, "You better run, gonna F you up." sheeesh The old guy could have half killed him after he got him down on the ground and this dumb kid thinks he was going to F up someone.

I wonder if he has learned anything.......

The girls saying to "beat his white ass,? Hate crime? Instigating a hate crime?

"That man on some kinda dope?"
He got hold of a dope egged on by dopes.

Bring an ambulance. Well we know who will pay for that healthcare bill....

and someone tell those dumb girls he isn't leaking, he's bleeding, from having his ass kicked by a 67 year old white dude he should have left alone.

sheeesh the world is full of idiots....

Contrary to conventional wisdom, all blackmen can't fight and throw hands. A lot of young cats talk trash, but it doesn't mean they can whup your behind. Growing up in my hood, we had to fight with our fists, not guns and knives. Trying to impress some girls on a transit bus made him a "Hood Star," but not in the way he would have expected.
