Actor Moise Morancy was on a crowded bus when an older white woman started yelling at a young black lady. It's a bit unclear exactly what started her tirade, but it's a bus, so it could be anything. Buses are probably the worst form of travel that doesn't involve going through a radiation machine before entry. Everyone is angry, and much like alcohol, bus anger brings people's true demons. Morancy describes the situation that went down in the video like so:
So this morning, I get on a crowded bus on my way to school & this white woman is bugging out, yelling and being extremely rude, mainly because people were standing near the back door. So this brilliant black girl kindly says to her “Ma’am, there’s no room on this bus. There’s a stroller and it’s extremely crowded, where are people supposed to stand?” Immediately the woman snapped saying all kinds of rude things! No, I don’t know this black girl from a hole in the wall, but I don’t care. You ain’t gonna talk to my sista like that. So I call out that woman’s racist remarks as well as her white privilege; because she thinks she can speak to whoever she wants to in whichever manner she feels. All hell breaks loose as we see her true perspective of not only us as black people but our traits and occupations…..what do you think? Was I wrong for stepping in?
Well, let's see:
Okay, this looks pretty bad and super racist. The woman goes out of her way to call Morancy inferior, uneducated, and un-presentable. She takes a swipe at his hair, then follows it up with suggestive comments about waiting for the police to show up to take out cameras. She never drops the n-word, though she seems like the kind of person who says it quietly to herself when she gets home after a long day of having to rub elbows with inferior people.
No word on what's happened to this woman now that a video of her losing her sh*t on a public bus has gone viral, though Morancy says in the vid that he hopes she gets fired. It's tempting to almost pity her, because Morancy is relentless and she clearly has no idea how powerful the Internet can be. But if she weren't racist, she wouldn't underestimate a young black man's social media presence. It's sort of a "racist chicken and racist egg" situation. Considering his post has been shared on Facebook almost 9,000 times, she's probably learned. To take a cab.
