Brooklyn, NY - No Anti-Semitism And Virtually No Remorse, Says Woman In Viral Subway Rant

Brooklyn, NY - The woman whose angry tirade on an IRT train has been viewed more than 180,000 times on Twitter has said that she stands by the scathing tongue lashing she gave an Orthodox Jewish man, with the exception of a final obscene phrase hurled as she completed her profanity-laden diatribe.

As previously reported on VIN News, the incident took place on May 24th when subway rider Yossi Wolfe took issue with a statement made by a fellow passenger identified as Shauntaye King of Brooklyn.

King had scolded seated African American passengers on the Bronx-bound 4 train for not getting up for a mother with three children, telling them that they would have accorded that courtesy to the family had they been Jewish.  Wolfe asked King not to make any “racist” remarks, resulting in a verbal explosion, part of which was filmed by a fellow rider and was posted to Twitter where it attracted a large audience.

In an interview with the New York Post, King said that the video showed only part of her approximately seven minute long exchange with Wolfe.  According to King, her anger stemmed from a combination of factors: Wolfe reportedly saying that black people aren’t treated unfairly in America, being called a racist and her personal concerns about police violence against black people.

“I feel as a black woman, every time I see a black man get shot, every time I see a black man getting harassed by the police, how I have to tell my son to behave if there’s authority in his presence,” said King. “That hurts my heart.”

King said that her husband had been pulled over police days before the incident for inadvertently going through a stop sign. She said that he and a friend were detained by police for more than an hour while they searched his car for drugs, saying they smelled marijuana.  He was ultimately released with just a traffic ticket.

King defended her remarks to Wolfe, saying that none of her statements could have been construed as anti-Semitic, derogatory or hateful.  Wolfe’s allegations that she was a racistand was anti-Semitic were completely unfounded, observed King, who is black but said she has a white mother.

“I understand the definition of racism,” said King. “You cannot be a racist if you don’t feel superior. I don’t know any black people who feel superior to the white race … my comments did not signal or identify any thoughts of superiority I may have.”

VIN News contacted King on Facebook but she declined to be interviewed saying, “I actually am not inclined to speak to any Jewish news outlets for fear they may try to depict my words as anti-Semitic [sic].  However, I will say this. I have never or would never be prejudice [sic] toward any religion. I have a high regard for all people’s faith and what I said was merely a statement toward my fellow black people on the train. Just because something is not known in your communities doesn’t mean it’s not common knowledge in ours.”

King expressed a similar sentiment to Wolfe as she left the train at the Atlantic Avenue station, telling him, “You’ll never know what it’s like if the police come in contact with your kid or your husband and if they’re ever gonna make it home.”

That statement was punctuated with a two word expletive, the only part of the entire lengthy exchange that King said she regrets.

“The majority of the Jewish race is white and they don’t walk the streets we walk in,” said King, who dreams of becoming a lawyer and becoming involved in civil rights. “They don’t have to worry if they’re gonna get rented to. They don’t have to worry about getting welfare.”

Last week’s incident does not appear to be the first time that King has vehemently expressed opinions that may be unpopular with others.  A March 27th Facebook post that criticized someone for not giving up their seat to a child read, “Just had to shame this man into letting a child sit down.” 

Another Facebook post described anyone who voted for President Donald Trump as “a pig,” adding, “I have to deduce your character to a predator, bigot and racist if you’re willing to support that even a little bit. You should be ashamed of yourselves.”

King also has multiple profanity-laced posts on her Facebook page slamming the MTA for subpar service including one where she details coming late to pick up her child from school because of train delays and ends with the words “MTA I [obscenity] hate you” and another that starts with the words “My daily MTA New York City Transit rant NOT GIVNG A [obscenity] WHO DOESN’T LIKE IT BTW.”

While King felt little remorse over her remarks, five days after posting the video, Twitter user chrisfrench_ said that posting the footage was a mistake.

“Didn’t think video would go as viral as it has,” tweeted chrisfrench_.  “I myself have been called a racist just for posting, which is weak, but no matter. I regret posting now, because everyone has run rampant with the ‘angry black woman’ narrative and it’s really disheartening.”

This classy brainiac says whites don’t have to worry about getting welfare! So blacks have trouble getting it? I’ll just bet if you look at the numbers on the welfare rolls, blacks outnumber whites by far! What a piece of work this beauty is...

why would anyone really care what she meant of what she said?
she gets up in the morning takes the train to work and probably late for her job and all worked up by her family before she left her house. Here comes along a Jew who said something she didnt like and starts ranting,cursing,shelting .
She is a Goyte and you dont expect any better from her.

Did everyone read what she stated, namely that "her husband inadvertently went through a stop sign"? One does not drive through a stop sign, unless they intend to. Hence, her husband deserved to get a ticket. Secondly, why would VIN want to interview this farbisen, potty mouthed creature? It reminds me of the boot licking reporters from the cable and network tv news outlets, who outdid each other to get an exclusive "scoop" of those filthy mouthed Nazis marching in Charlottesville, Va. Then, the same news media broadcast their filthy and obscene lies on tv,. Fox News also did that, as each media outlet competed with one another for the ratings. Even One America News, which is more conservative tha than Fox, actually interviewed the head Nazi, who organized that march!

When you hear a mongrel growl and bark does it really matter what it's saying?

He didn't have to do anything. She happens to start with the Jewish people when the only jew in the train is standing. He owed her nothing.

If what she said was not antisemitic, then we should be able to say such things about her like she is a typical screwed up schvartz without us being called racist.....

The problem starts with the word "welfare". So just what are you including in "welfare" (and why)? Then there is a question of defining "white" (as example, are Latino "white"? what about mixed parentage?) And are you counting numbers or percentages?

From Wikipedia the 2010 census gives "self-identified" race as follows:

White "alone": 72.4%
Black or African American 12.6%

These numbers alone leave me no doubt that there are more "White" on "welfare" (in almost any reasonable definition of the word) than "Black" in actual numbers. But what about the percentages? The numbers show 5.7 White in the population for every Black. Are there at least 5.7 or more White on welfare for every Black?

Your numbers don’t show the percentage of blacks on welfare proportionate to their overall US population. Nor does it show the percentage of blacks on welfare proportionate to their population in certain cities.

This ranting hyena should suffer the same fate as the white man who verbally racially attacked a black woman on a Long Island Railroad train. He was charged with a hate crime. Knowing how the leftist liberal MSM views these things, she may get a free pass from them, but should the same hate law apply to this shrew.
