Chicken Soup for the racist’s soul?

Earlier this week, a video surfaced of a man yelling racial slurs while riding the Brooklyn Bound L train in N.Y.C. Fed up, passengers confronted the racist and kicked him off the train. Someone also took it upon themselves to throw a container of soup at the man. N.Y.C. native and rapper, Princess Nokia, AKA Destiny Frasqueri, took to Twitter and revealed she was responsible for this badass act of bravery.

Princess Nokia is well-known for her activism, being a voice against racism and sexism through her music and at her shows. At concerts, she requests that the men stand in the back of the venue and the women up front as a part of her belief that “women should take up space the way men do.”

Her series of tweets about the incident began, “This bigot called a group of teenage boys ‘ni***rs’ on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up.”

Frasqueri states that when she hit the man he began calling her the same racist remarks. The video shows a group of passengers forcing the man off the train when it arrived at the Bedford Avenue stop in Brooklyn. She continued her tweets by saying, "I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters #blacklivesmatter."

As the white nationalist and neo-Nazi movement grows, there’s much debate on whether or not violence is the answer to racism. But if our government won’t speak out against the racists, the only way to bring attention to the problem may be to simply punch, or soup, a Nazi.
