*At the onset, you just want to look at this as another example of how racism is still not a thing of the past. Not even outside of America. This incident caught us off guard though. When we saw racism happen somewhere else, to someone other than black people. It was still just as ugly and ignorant, but it warmed our hearts to see how these bystanders on a train in Sydney, Australia handled this ignorant woman.
Makes one step back and say, “You know what, maybe there is hope after all.”
A woman was caught on film, traveling on the Central Coast & Newcastle train line and went from unleashing verbal assaults on a group of children to hurling insults and racial slurs to everyone in her path.
In the video, you will see her begin to berate the man who we think may be recording. Apparently, he is standing next to an Asian woman, who the racist refers to as “gook.”
“He can only get a gook!” the woman declares to no one in particular and everyone in general. “He can’t even get a regular girlfriend!”
She then mocks the Asian woman’s accent and pulls on her eyes to look slanted saying, “What’s wrong with Hong Kong?” and “Why did you come to this country? This is our country.”
But ignorance is bliss, as the crazy woman is ranting nonstop and doesn’t even hear the man explain that he is not with the Asian woman — who he stands up for nonetheless.
Another man offers the Asian woman his seat, after she says something to the effect of, “I can’t even get a seat,” he says, “You can have mine.”
The woman making the racist remarks had initially “become aggressive” toward a group of kids 12 and under who wouldn’t give up their seats. She then reportedly assaulted another person and then called the police herself, according the the description in the video uploaded by YouTube user “Kareem Abdul.”
