What year is this? Six decades ago, Rosa Parks sparked the Civil Rights movement by refusing to sit at the back of the bus. This video, which came to us from FirebrandProgressives.org, depicts a man trying to relive the Jim Crow era on a modern-day New York City bus. Don’t try to drink liquids while you watch, or else you will do a spit-take when this unidentified man says that “this is why we need Donald Sterling.”

An old white guy gets on a bus in New York City and has the audacity to ask a black woman to get up from her seat and move to the back of the bus. Here is the exchange, which begin after the man asked her to move:


WHITE PASSENGER: “Because the back of the bus is over there… I mean the black of the bus is over there.”

BLACK PASSENGER: “Excuse you?”

WHITE PASSENGER: “Yes, I want that seat.”

BLACK PASSENGER: “Why do I have to go to the back of the bus?”

WHITE PASSENGER: “I want that seat.”

BLACK PAASENGER: “No, I’m not getting up cause you’re being… no… you’re being racist.”

The white passenger then insulted the black passenger’s hair, and said, “this is why we need Donald Sterling.”



Update: This video appears to be a hoax.
