In what has to be one of the most selfish moves possible, a video shows a white man dragging an Asian man who’s just had a seizure off a train, instead of waiting for paramedics, in hopes that the train would start moving.
Warning: this video contains nudity and graphic content.
The incident happened on the Metro Blue Line in Long Beach, California, according to the website NextShark. The video, taken by a man whose YouTube channel names him as Billion Godsun, shows a white man in a suit literally dragging the unconscious Asian man off the train. Adding insult to injury, as he’s being dragged, the Asian man’s sweatpants come almost completely off, exposing his genitals.
In the video, the white man says, “There are a lot of people on this train that have to get home,” showing that his motivation for dragging the sick man off the train (who he claims he thought was drunk) was that he hoped the train would start moving.
In the clip, Billion chastises the unidentified man in the suit for his white privilege, saying he uncaringly moved the man knowing that he’d probably face no repercussions from the law. He says, “Wasn’t nobody else tripping on having to wait for the paramedics to come, that’s that white shit. That’s that white shit, you gonna drag him off for your f**king convenience. That’s that bullshit white people do cuz y’all feel y’all can get away with it, cuz y’all know when the motherf**king law come, the mother**king law don’t do shit to you y’all for that bullshit.”
Speaking to FOX 11, Billion said the man had suffered seizures and thrown up on the train before he collapsed. He also mentioned that the man was wearing a medical wristband. “In the top part of his head he had a hole but he also had metal staples in his head looking like he was fresh out the hospital,” he added.
The other passengers were apparently not happy with the white man’s actions. Billion explained, “We all initially responded telling him to get his hands off him or whatever and the guys pants fell all the way down so he was naked, so he stopped for a second, pulled his pants up, laid him out on the ground,” Billion said.
Long Beach Fire told FOX 11 that paramedics arrived and took the man to the hospital, where he was in stable condition.
Metro wasn’t aware of the white man’s actions until FOX 11 showed them Billion’s video. They then released the following statement:
“Metro is working with our law enforcement partners in investigating an incident at the Metro Blue Line’s Wardlow Station when an unconscious male was removed from a Blue Line train by another rider. Obviously, this is very disturbing and we never want to see this on our system. We’re getting all the facts including reviewing the video from the train and the platform, and we’ll share more details when they’re available.”
So the white guy might not be getting off as easily as he thought. Hope it was worth it to throw another human’s body onto the platform just to make his own night go more smoothly.
