*Is this an act or are two white men really involved in a heated argument over the benefits of being white and gentrification.
Who knows. But New Yorker’s are accustomed to people fussing and cussing in the streets unprovoked. But in this instance two white men in downtown Brooklyn got into it after a man pushing a stroller bumped into a jogger.
There was no quick “I’m sorry’s” or “Hey man, no worries.”
The jogger, aka the one talking all the smack in the video, was all up in dude’s face, ready to fight-like, because he said the man with the stroller cussed at him for no reason. Then he went on to tell the man that the only reason white trash like him could live in the neighborhood (don’t forget, he’s white too!) is because he made it right for them to do so.
In the clip (scroll down), the jogger can be seen yelling: “The only reason white people like you are living here is because I settled this f—ing neighborhood for you!”
You can hear people laughing at the incident off camera. And they sound black.
“White privilege! White f—ing privilege!” the jogger rants. “You pushed your stroller right into me, and all I say was ‘excuse you,’ and then you said, ‘f–k you f–k you!’ You f—ing white trash!”
A passerby managed to capture the incident shortly after it began.
Oh, and did a mention a black man who appears to be a cop stands in the middle of the two?
Like I said at the beginning, who knows if its real or not. The stroller dude is playing it way too cool.
Others have speculated about the same thing.
