A black woman went on an angry rant at a Jewish man in the middle of a crowded New York City train as shocked commuters looked on.
The initial disagreement, caught on video and originally posted to twitter on Tuesday, was not caught on camera but it seemed the woman had made a comment about Jews after he chose not to give up his seat for another commuter.
‘You said I was being racist so you tell me what I’m being racist towards. You’re Jewish, and I said if a Jewish family got on here, somebody would have got up – that is not a racist thing, that is a factual statement,’ she yelled.
‘Judaism is not a race, it is a religion.’
At one point the man tried to tell her calmly that he believed they were the same and shouldn’t be racist to each other, saying ‘I’m a person, you are a person’.
She replied: ‘No, we’re different, understand that. You wanna know why? Because your people treat my people different in our community.’
She accused Jews of refusing to rent to black people, but he responded by saying he didn’t even own a house.
The video concluded without the pair reaching an agreement.
