Ok so Racism is a serious matter, in the UK if you say something that is racist you will probably get in trouble for it. I assumed that most people were not racist, but this women in this video is one of the most racist people I have ever seen.

What is that women thinking, how did she get like that and why nobody stopping her from mouthing off. What would you have done had you been in that situation?

I am not only disgusted by this women, but also disgusted by the people who are on there phones pretending everything is ok. Not only that, but there were a bunch of people in the comments who supported this women, how can you support HER!? What kind of impression is she giving to her son, how can she think it is alright to talk like that about people and use that kind of language in front of children?

This will not end well Sir Hizang.

You bigot!!

#3 Posted by Benny (1953 posts) -

Important to note that this like 0.0001% of people.

That being said, she clearly has some sort of mental disability or is fucking wasted. It's beyond me how someone get's so far in the world with an attitude like that. I feel bad for her because she hasn't got a fucking clue how wrong she is, and that really really frightens me.

If I was there I would have said "what makes you british? the fact your family has been here all their lives? Is her son not british just because he's black? Her son is older than your son and has been here longer than your son, does that make him more british ?" etc. etc. etc. I think she's probably beyond any reasoning anyway :(.

What's worse is her son will inherit this view as well.

Also borderline youtube spam and potential troll fuel so I give this thread, 30 minutes.

It's just pure ignorance and daily-mailer attitude. I feel bad for the child, that woman will obviously be a wonderful role model for him as he gets older.

I heard she's being fined for public indecency, or something similar, so at least this isn't being ignored.

Her name is Legion, for she is women.

What is she doing with her mouth? Are her teeth too big or something? It's highly distracting.

Bitches be crazy.

#8 Posted by biospank (660 posts) -

well there are racist people every where and why not stop her? because of freedom of speach so if you would hit her. then you would have to pay some money'z and get it on the record. Well I can see how this could be annoying but do not bother just listen to some music and tell yourself that she probably is so lazy that she blames everyone because of her lazy nature.

As sad as it is, I think that assumption is completely wrong. People just aren't as blatant with it as they used to be.

As far as what I would have done? Nothing. There really is nothing to do. There is nothing anyone could do or say to make people like that change their mind or shut up, and trying to do something will lead to nothing but them screaming even more nonsense out of their mouth.

She trollin

#11 Edited by PrintedCrayon (175 posts) -

Anyone who is shocked by this has clearly never been to London.

EDIT:

Let me elaborate - The reason no one says anything to her is due to the fact there would be no reasoning with her. You can't reason with people who are like that. They've already made up their mind and have decided that this other human being is not a person, but a thing.

By any degree this isn't even the worst kind of racism out there, stabbings, beatings, literally making someone's live a living hell due to the colour of their skin - it's not pleasant to witness.

#12 Edited by JCTango (1364 posts) -

That's pretty messed up. I don't think we'll ever get rid of racism though, sadly. It's almost human nature for people to try to differentiate things from each other; people like to put things into categories. The only circumstance that I see where racism between people will end is when/if aliens (hostile ones) come to our planet... only then will people stop with the stupidity and band together. Being a certain race does not make a person better or worse than any other... it's just how that person is born.. they can't help it.

It seems like she probably had a really messed up upbringing, or a really bad day/week/month/year. That doesn't excuse her for her behaviour, but people do regrettable things when their circumstances aren't where they think they should be.

On that note, I'm not really sure what I'd do in that situation in the video. I had to deal with enough racism when I was a kid in school; I had to stick up for myself since no one would (not the teachers, staff, principal). I got into a lot of fights against racist bullies, but I never got in trouble. Everyone knew what was going on.

#13 Posted by SeaMoose (41 posts) -

To be honest I don't know if anything i would have said would have stopped her. My mother would have definitely have stepped in but she's some what of a Miss Marple in my borough. I don't know where this was taken but in London the bus driver would sometimes stop the bus until the 'troublemaker' stops or the police would be called to the bus. A bit like this video...

#14 Posted by DuskVamp (681 posts) -

I keep seeing this around, but I can't bring myself to actually watch it, because I know how infuriating it will be.

#15 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I don't understand what you would expect people to do in that situation. You can't hit her because you'll most likely end up in jail and yelling at a stupid person doesn't help either.

#16 Posted by JCTango (1364 posts) -

@SpikeSpiegel: Yeah, the best thing you could probably do is ignore her - she's looking for attention. At the next stop, I'd switch trams.

#17 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

Did she seriously say, "You're not British, you're black."? Poor kid, needs a new mother.

#18 Posted by Soap (3607 posts) -

If I had been on that tram with her I'd of slapped her bigoted face clean off her intolerant uneducated head.

#19 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

She's obviously high off her mind on something, maybe just super wasted. 
 
Why do you care that everyone on the "tram" didn't immediately round up the posse and have a lynching party? Because that's what would have happened had everyone tried to fix the problem at once. They would have instantly become a mob. Everyone there reacted carefully and rationally, and the lady has since been arrested.

For the past 4 years of my life, I've been on a public train almost daily. People mouth off all the time. What do I do? Uncomfortably pretend they don't exist. I'm sure in this case, I would have done the same thing. Granted, I've never heard anyone so terribly intolerant. 

#22 Edited by dabe (299 posts) -

A lot of people share similar, ignorant views in England (probably rest of UK also).

Unfortunately, there are insurmountable factors causing these attitudes and it seems they're not going to stop any time soon (whether the people holding the views are doing so inward or outwardly).

Anyways, fuck racism and fuck stupidity/ignorance.

Also, Peckhan Terminator is an hilarity.

#23 Posted by TooWalrus (13235 posts) -

There's really nothing that could have been done to improve the situation- as long as words are just words, it's not worth getting involved. I probably would have chuckled at the idiot lady and enjoyed the show.

#24 Posted by SerHulse (685 posts) -

While I agree that this behaviour is abhorrent, making an even bigger scene by calling her out on it wouldn't help, especially in such a public place, people like her are going to become incredibly defensive if you say anything to her and she will never let it go, it's just not worth engaging her in any way.

She's beyond convincing, thankfully, what with the fall of the BNP, people like her are in decline.

What makes a Brit a Brit? is it the colour of your skin? where you were born? who your parents are? your grandparents?

National pride is stupid, it's like being proud you have brown eyes. If anything those who moved here are "more" British (whatever that means) they worked hard to be able to live here, we are just fortunate to have been born here.

@Benny: It's in Off-Topic and is starting a discussion, doesn't qualify as spam.

#25 Posted by Largo6661 (336 posts) -

Its sad some people act like that, immigration is a real problem in the UK but it has nothing to do with race. Immigration is an issue that has to be addressed because of economic reasons, It isn’t racist to say Britain needs to become stricter when it comes to excepting people from other countries, but this women is just racist, she just hates people who are different to her. Also when did it become a rule that to be British you have to be white? Being British has nothing to do with race or colour. Honestly I feel sorry for her son who’s probably going to grow up to be as narrow minded as her.

I feel compelled by an unknown supernatural force to continue responding to every one of your posts.

Actually my laptop battery is almost dead so the supernatural force will have to find a new victim in 5 minutes :)

Well said.

It's the fear created by an apparent "problem" that immigrants are coming to the U.K and taking all the good jobs. At least that is what the Daily Mail and The Sun would have you believe - in truth, they're actually some of the hardest working people on the planet and take all the ridiculously low-paying and shitty jobs.

This is why stuff like this is so aggravating though, say for example, the woman near the end (who said her mouthing off woke her baby up) punched her or something, odds are she would get in more trouble, that being said, I can't imagine in that situation anyone defending the racist woman, but still.

This. Getting into a physical altercation wouldn't be a good idea. Punching a woman and acting like an idiot would just play into the stereotypes that people make.

Report her to social services and get them to take away her kid

Funny thing about that video is that the people filming sounded equally as retarded at the end, amazing how the real world works.

@Hulsey90: Fair enough.

Odd that nobody has mentioned that this is pretty much the UK equivalent of "TERRKK ERRR JEERRRBBS!!!" and equally as idiotic.

#34 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

I'd laugh and ignore her.
 
No time to waste on such fools.

Laughing is probably also a terrible idea. Then you would either have that fucked up woman or one of the other people there going "oh you think that's funny? Well let me tell you something" and voila, you're now the problem. 
#36 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -

I would not have stopped the chap behind her from punching her in the back of the head thats for sure. 
 
she has been arrested now though i heard.

#37 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4827 posts) -

I would follow her home, trick her into marrying me, and then begin to teach her to not be racist.

Or, and this might be more fun, I could kidnap her son and leave a note telling her I would give him back when she has sex with a black man, a polish man, an asian man, and a disabled man.

Peckham Terminator is awesome.

Oh no, I'd make damn sure she'd notice me laughing at her.
Probably throw in a comment to if she was noticing me.
I love pissing off silly people like this, ignoring them or simply laughing is the best way.
 
If anyone assumes I'd laugh about such silly things I'll offer to punch the slag's nose in as compensation too!

I would pay your rent for the rest of your life if you would go around punching everyone like her.

Is a tram a train??? Sorry ignorant American over here.... Anyway I thought that video was hilarious. That black kid behind looked like he was ready to punch that girl lol. There's nothing really to say to that video because....this is just a small portion of humanity right here. Gotta accept and move on....The glories of free will.
