In a video purportedly filmed earlier this week in downtown Brooklyn, a white jogger—who may or may not fight for a living and may or may not be able to kill you with one punch—can be seen screaming at a white man pushing a stroller: “The only reason white people like you live here is because I settled this fucking neighborhood for you!”
The video begins mid-confrontation, so it’s hard to know for certain what triggered it, but it appears the man pushing the stroller ran into the jogger. Somehow the fallout from the collision escalates to a screaming match, with finger-pointing, death threats, and chants of “white privilege,” all while a police officer—or maybe a traffic cop—stands between the two warring parties.
“Don’t fucking come at me,” the jogger warns the stroller-pusher near the video’s start. “I’ll kill you with one punch. You’re messing with the wrong guy. I fight for a living.”
“[Inaudible],” the stroller-pusher responds, apparently further enraging the jogger, who screams back: “You push your stroller into people? Your baby could get hurt…I fight babies like you, baby!”
A woman who appears to be the stroller-pusher’s wife decides to enter the fray. “You’re a sick fuck,” she tells the jogger.
“You’re a sick fuck!” he replies. “White privilege! White fucking privilege! You pushed your stroller right into me, and all I say was ‘excuse you,’ and then you said, ‘fuck you fuck you!’ You fucking white trash!”
Good video, that, of course, could be fake. Either way, living in Brooklyn is great.
UPDATE 2:21 pm: The video has been removed from YouTube, but we put up a GIF that almost does it justice.
