Can't abide racism in any form.
We are all one species, bigots want to remember that!
Their racially divisionist perceptions and attitudes are a product of them being manipulated and programmed to hate, however deep the footprint from
formatives, it is weak minded prejudice because they are programmed to think a certain way and can't rewrite what they are programmed with = weak
mindedness, simple as that in regards to the individual, they have the ability to rewrite neural patterning, alter thought processes, but can't more
than won't, easier to hate for them.
Good on the chap for defending himself i say!
Chap reminds me of an ex Royal Navy vet i used to see hopping on number 9, 10 Routemasters along Kensignton High Street, London England, back in
2002-5, don't use the route so often since but maybe still alive.
This chap was in his early 90's and ran for the buses faster than some a quarter his age, carried a shillelagh of hardened Prunus wood, wild silver
hair and short bearded, fit as a fiddle and a senior not to be messed with.
A vicarious lesson for the thugs out there, not all senior citizens are frail, plenty fight back and they won't know who are the ones who won't take
crap until it's too late, because they aren't the trouble makers.
I'd like that disseminated across news agencies as food for thought for thugs, racist or not, other examples thrown up periodically as food for
thought to thugs and bullies who'd seek to victimise seniors thinking they are old and frail, when many are nothing of the sort, just not trouble
making oiks such are the thugs.
Perhaps more criminal thugs will be minded to leave senior citizens alone more being as the elderly are commonly made victim, just because they are
seniors, doesn't necessarily mean they are pushovers.
Good on the fellow i say!!!
More power to him, indeed!!!
Nothing wrong with decent people taking issue with racist haters and criminal thugs, nothing wrong at all as long as it's not in context of
vigilantist groups looking for it unofficially, groups need to liase with police to organise in the community.
Take the power back, thugs, racist or not, do not rule the streets, decent citizens and police do, thugs are the weak minority.
