    whites just cower not even fighting back

    The ever-fading colorblind part of me wants to believe that the reason this “woman” went on the attack is because she was acquainted with the victim and was upset with him personally (for whatever reason).

    That being said, the ever-strengthening racial realist side of me says that this woman took offense to the presence of a blue-eyed devil on her otherwise Authentically Black bus ride.  She knew that her fellow blacks would not intervene to help a White devil being attacked, and so she felt she could get away with doing almost ANYTHING to him–what I will call the Black Bystander Effect.

    I also really WANT to believe that the only reason this White “man” did not fight back is because he knew what the other black sharks on the bus would do to him if he were to actually defend himself.  Unfortunately, he may be so brainwashed that he felt he deserved to have some of his White privilege beaten out of him by the diversity.  

    • Rocky Bass,

       Knowing that if the attacked man raised a finger in defense the “black bystanders” would joyfully become active participants! She is probably very disappointed in her fellow “brothers” for their lack of involvement, and this man making it home alive as a result!

      I doubt they knew one another.  If they did they would’ve found her by now.

  • sarah stein

    She didn’t pay, must have been a weak wimpy white bus driver.  Philadelphia allows concealed carry, so I can only believe white people enjoy getting rape, robbed, beaten and or killed.

    Wheres the coverage by the major T.V. networks like ABC-CBS-NBC of this news worthy story and many others where blacks are involved in beating on White bus passengers…

    Today & Tonight there is no shortage of coverage by these 3 Major networks of white kids harrassing/being rude to an elderly White bus monitor…in every instance i have seen thus far they have black reporters reporting on this “horrific” story of  white “bullies” being disrespectful to an elderly White lady.Just saw it again on NBC with Brian Williams who had a black reporter doing the story…

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/bullying-bus-monitor-sparks-amazing-compassion-campaign-video-143135242.html

    amazingly she gets over a 100,000 dollars by sympathetic donors…good for her…but what about all those White victims who have suffered much more  at the hands of black youths…

    • The__Bobster

       All four major Philly networks buried this story for three weeks, hoping it would go away.

    • Spartan24708

      The kids that I saw in the bus harassment video looked like Hispanics, not whites.

      • Sloppo

        I looked at that video and I didn’t notice any indication of that. 

  • razorrare

    continued…

    obviously the MSM is dissapointed these White bullies weren’t harrassing a black elderly lady and making rude,crude hurtful remarks to her…it would have been an orgy fest of which network could out-do the other in its coverage…

    these White bullies would never dare do this to a black woman …

    i think the message these networks are trying to get across is this…see!! White “youths” act up too!

    Pathetic…

    • The__Bobster

      Obviously the MSM is dissapointed these White bullies weren’t
      harrassing a black elderly lady and making rude, crude hurtful remarks to
      her…it would have been an orgy fest of which network could out-do the
      other in its coverage…
      _______

      Don’t worry. When Hollyweird makes this incident into a movie, that’s the way it WILL look.

  • This has to do something with sex. Not money, no drugs,…

    I suspect he refused to bang her & “Precious” went mad.

  • ageofknowledge

    Well that’s obviously a racial assault. Time to catch this black woman and stick her with some hate crime enhancements.

    She’s probably bragging all over town about her crime so it shouldn’t be too hard to find out who she is. Simply put a small bounty out for her… say $500.00. That should do it imo.

    I was on the SEPTA bus today and as we approached the second stop, I saw a crowd of 15 black women. They got on, 6 paid, the rest didn’t. The drive was this Russian guy with a very thick accent. He confronted them and they started yelling/tnb bull spit. He said “What is wrong with YOU people”. Bad choice of words. We get to our destination and the police waiting. The girls get off the bus and start screaming. The one says “this dude is racist as f***, he only asking the black people”. I step in. I say I know it’s none of my business but I was on the bus too. When he said “YOU people” he was referring to YOU people, as in YOU girls as a group. To call someone a racist is a very serious claim. Your baseless name calling could possibly cost this man his job. You don’t care though. The only reason he asked you girls is because YOU girls did NOT play. She looks at me disgusted and says “who the f*** is you”–I say screw it and walk away. At least I said something lol.

    He was obviously guilty of being WIP (White in public).

    Suspect Arrested In SEPTA Bus Beating

    Fox 29 has learned that the suspect wanted in connection with a violent attack on a SEPTA bus has been arrested. Cassie Darby, 49, is currently being held at the 35th District headquarters.  She is charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment.
    Earlier in the week, we showed you the unbelievable video of a woman brutally attacking a passenger on a SEPTA bus in Philadelphia’s Germantown section. The victim, Bastiaan Slabbers,  was getting hit by a woman in pink shirt on a SEPTA bus.

    The attack lasted a little more than 10 seconds, but Slabbers says it felt much longer.

      Update #2:

      http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2012/06/22/female-suspect-arrested-in-random-videotaped-attack-aboard-septa-bus/

      Eyewitness News caught up with the victim. He says he’s glad he didn’t fight back. “I thought it was wise not to,” said Slabbers. “One thing I can say is I’m okay,” said Slabbers. “It’s a good thing it happened to me and not someone younger or older.”

      Slabbers is a freelance news photographer who spends most of his time capturing the images and events in Northwest Philadelphia. He moved here from the Netherlands two years ago. He never expected to end up on the other side of the camera lens, especially for something negative. Now that he has, he surprisingly says he wants to know more about his attacker.

      “I want to know what her story is,” said Slabber. “I want to know why,” he insisted. “I think it could be inspiring for everyone to know what triggered it.”

      There may not be a reasonable explanation. According to police, Darby has been arrested 32 other times for similar offenses.

     Okay, thanks for the information.  Believe me, we are trying very hard to move and I’ve been looking at the U.S. Census tract information.  The big picture, however, is that so much of this Section 8 housing has to GO and law enforcement has to do their jobs, and we need to get and stay armed.  We’re working on it.

    CCW is perfectly legal within the city of brotherly love.  I live a few counties away from Philly, and my permit to carry is valid there.  Pennsylvania is a shall-issue state.

    5’5” with a stocky build boarded the bus and right after sitting down,
    she suddenly got up, approached a man sitting a few rows behind her and
    began assaulting him.

    What’s curious is that the suspect is described as black but they didn’t identify the victim as white. My guess would be that had they identified the victim as white, that would have opened the door to questions of this being a hate crime and those in charge had every intention of downplaying that possibility. 

    I clicked to watch the video but it came up saying, “This is a private video”. I did find it on youtube.

    The blacks love to use public transportation to come to White areas to cause destruction and rob and rape people. In the SF Bay Area it’s BART, Bay Area Rapid Transit. Or as we call it Blacks Attacking Random Tourists. They love to take BART to some White area like Walnut Creek to get dem sum White wimmun.
