Lady Smackdown On SF Bus: Watch, Comment, Do Nothing

October 9th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

This passenger-documented video of two ladies getting hostile (like, downright violent) over an apparent seat-hogging situation on San Francisco’s MUNI bus in Chinatown is starting to make the Internet rounds. In response, YouTube commenters have quickly taken sides and naturally erupted into a hot, ignorant racial debate (One woman is black; One is Asian–prepare for the worst).

I know that in this era of absofuckinlutetrainwreck fascination it’s hard not to slip right into cage fighting voyeur mode–grab the popcorn, pick a favorite, start cheering–but frankly, this video’s chaos and its assaults just made me sad. Fine, we’re animals, and we physically duke it out–but what’s the natural order displayed here? What is achieved? What is the point?

I’m not taking sides on this one, and I don’t care who is “right” (That is assuming that someone can actually be considered “right” after fist-fighting near schoolchildren and innocents in tight quarters on a commuter bus).

Frankly, the only person really worth cheering for is the woman who appears at roughly 1:29 of the video, who adamantly and physically commands those involved to “STOP IT”–instead of simply standing idly by–horrified but fascinated–like everyone else.

Don’t hate, integrate.

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
