Moise Morancy, a 20-year-old Black man, has been outspoken on racism in recent times. However, nothing could have prepared the Brooklyn-based artist and activist with a run-in he had with a racist white woman on a city bus of which he posted a now-viral video clip. onto social media.
In a video uploaded to Facebook last week (Oct. 22), Morancy can be seen having an argument with a white woman who goes into all-out jerk mode and hurling insults. The exchange began after the woman began arguing with a younger Black woman over the amount of space on a crowded bus. Morancy stepped in and that’s when things got ugly.
From Morancy’s Facebook:
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?
Morancy’s video has been gaining traction on Facebook with over 355,00 views as of this weekend. The clip has been uploaded by other users as well. Morancy followed up the posting of the video with another clip last Friday (Oct. 23), continuing to preach the refrain that he “will not be silenced.”
The video, sadly, shows that even in the sea of Black faces that a racist white person’s true colors will show and they’ll even be slightly snooty about it. Assuming this exchange happened in Brooklyn, it could be a sad sign of the times that racial tensions are on a rise. In this case, it’s clear the woman caught the wrong one that day when she ran into Morancy.
