VIDEO: Woman stands up against racist harassment

It's the beginning of the week! You need happy things! 

Like this woman who calmly interrupted a woman who was ranting about a Muslim couple who "didn't belong here" on a subway. 


Because I cheated my way through Spanish class, I have no idea what she's saying... but someecards says this is a translation of sorts: 

I think you're being unfair. We all have to work together," Tong tells the older woman. "We can't be against one person. This is absolutely ridiculous and disrespectful.

After the woman insists that it's "ridiculous that we're in this situation," Tong replies, "Exactly, so why should we fight with people and start more problems, and be against each other?

"I'm not scolding you. I’m not telling you to be quiet. I’m asking you to please respect her. In Spanish, in English, in Chinese, in French, whatever language you want me to say it, I will say it to you. Whether you’re born from here, Puerto Rico, wherever you are from.”

“We’re all in this together. Whether we like what’s going on in the government or not. F it. We gotta deal with it. You’re a grown woman. Suck it up, and you defend your brothers and sisters.”
