"I got out my seat for a crippled man but he got up for a white woman" tweet causes a stir on TL
While you're here please follow me.
An American tweep caused a stir on Twitter. This followed an alleged encounter with a man in a public transportation.
The tweep wrote, "I got out my seat for a black man with a broken ankle so he could sit… and he got up for a white woman. I am sick"
I think it's a tricky situation to break down. At hindsight, it's easy to think the guy has inferiority complex but maybe he thought he was being a gentleman. Again, if he was such a gentleman, he wouldn't have agreed to take the tweep's seat to begin with.
The comments section revealed mixed emotions to the tweet because some felt like the lady instigated an attack on black men while others were attacking the said man for acting like he's living in colonial times.
Thoughts? Was the man wrong to stand for the white woman when he was offered the chair himself?
Thank you for reading. Please leave your comments in the comments section below and I'll engage!
