Racist rant against young Black college student goes viral

A round of applause should be given to a young college student named Moise Morancy. Morancy was on his way to class when he stepped into an argument between a middle-aged White woman and a person he called his sister. The woman goes on an extended racist rant calling him an ugly Black man. But Morancy does not back down in the face of her racist rant.  Instead, he begins filming her racist behavior, telling her she’s going to be on Facebook. The woman tells Morancy, “Your inferior because your Black,” shocking passengers on the bus as she further exposes her racist mind.

Morancy posted to his Facebook page: “So this morning, I get on a crowded bus on my way to school & this white woman is bugging out, yelling and being extremely rude, mainly because people were standing near the back door. So this brilliant black girl kindly says to her, ‘Ma’am, there’s no room on this bus. There’s a stroller and it’s extremely crowded, where are people supposed to stand?’ Immediately the woman snapped saying all kinds of rude things! No, I don’t know this black girl from a hole in the wall, but I don’t care. You ain’t gonna talk to my sista like that. So I call out that woman’s racist remarks as well as her white privilege; because she thinks she can speak to whoever she wants to in whichever manner she feels. All hell breaks loose as we see her true perspective of not only us as black people but our traits and occupations…..what do you think? Was I wrong for stepping in?”

The video is fast approaching one million views and has made the 20-year-old aspiring artist and activist from Brooklyn a social media hero.
