Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

‘Epic Beard Man’

I’m not sure if any of you have seen the video, but about a week or so ago there was two men on a public transportation bus who got into an argument. There was so much yelling back and forth that I couldn’t really understand for myself what they were arguing about, but supposedly it had something to do with the African American male calling the older Caucasian male a racist. In order to prevent things from going any further, the Caucasian man moved to the front of the bus. The other male, who was apparently drunk, followed him and preceded to punch him. Surprisingly to many viewers, the much older Caucasian male was more than capable of defending himself, and ended up beating the crap out of the other guy. Although many people found this incredibly funny, I’m worried that this is going to bring many negative repercussions on terms of race. The question is who will be looked at as the offender, and who as the victim.
