Now, I normally I don’t talk about this kind of tomfoolery on my blog, however, my constitution will NOT allow me to NOT say anything about the video titled “B*TCH Get Off My Bus.” I’m not going to link the video on here, but a simple Google search will help to satisfy your curiosity.
For those who refuse to Google it, let me give you a brief description of what happened.
- Teenage (CORRECTION, She’s 25 years old) girl is on a city bus.
- Teenager on said city bus is arguing and cursing with the driver of the bus.
- Teenager spits on and hits the bus driver.
- Bus driver uppercuts the teenager.
When it comes to violence, everyone has an opinion. When it comes to violence AND when opposite sexes are involved, the opinions vary greatly. Now, let me say this, I DO NOT condone violence.
No Violence, Know Peace, KNOW Violence, NO PEACE!
I do, however, think that people have the right to defend themselves when they are attacked physically. The method in which people defend themselves often causes controversy.
The “B*TCH Get Off My Bus” incident brings to mind the concept of female privilege. The young lady in the video was clearly the aggressor and she acted with violence. After the bus driver hit her, you could hear some of the passengers say: “She’s a girl!” However, girls don’t generally hit men, no? The bus driver said, “You wanna be a man, Imma treat you like a man.”
After it was all said and done, the young lady threatened the bus driver with jail time and even more violence via a beat down from her people.
Where do I begin? There were several things wrong here. I’m saddened by the lack of respect for her elder. I’m equally saddened that the bus driver decided to argue with her. It was hard to differentiate who was the fool was here because people who argue with fools are fools themselves. Further, I’m saddened by the lack of self control and her ability to cope.
Let go back to female privilege. This concept give females a false sense of entitlement and safety. News flash, your gender does NOT exempt you from getting your azz whipped if you ARE the aggressor. Don’t think that your X chromosomes status means that you have free range to hit men.
You. Are. Wrong! We often tell our sons to NOT hit girls but do we tell our daughters NOT to hit boys? I think the bus driver had the right to hit the young lady and here is why.
- She hit him first.
- You don’t know what else she was capable of doing.
- Shawty could have had a weapon on her AND he had a bus full of passengers.
- She was clearly out of control and out of control people are dangerous.
This entire incident is tragic. The bus driver may lose his job as a result of this madness. The male family members and friends of the young lady may seek revenge on the bus driver. This whole thing is a mess. #icant Have you seen the “B*TCH Get Off My Bus” video? What are your thoughts?
Thanks for listening. Smh
