No one should be subject to racial assault, abuse or humiliation. This lady in her 70s was subject to all of the above in a public place by a foul mouthed, heavy handed racially abusive man who should have been escorted of the plane as the plane had not yet taken off. Instead, flight attendants did their best to attend to his needs and pander to him and move the lady who had every right to sit where she had been seated. The above video was filmed by concerned fellow passenger David Lawrence. When he heard a commotion behind him and turned to see the belligerent man in the video standing over the old lady, hurling racist abuse at her and telling her to move. David Lawrence then proceeded to film what happened next. The flight attendants were slow to react and when they did, seemed more concerned to attend to the demands of the racist abuser. Only one fellow passenger seems to try to intervene, everyone else is Blasé. It is a criminal offence to hurl racist abuse at any one and to touch their person without consent. This man did both and in doing so commuted a criminal act under section 39 of the law. He should have been immediately escorted from the stationery plane, reported and handed over to the police and refused travel. Any other actions by staff imply ignorance and poor training or compliance with his hateful beliefs and criminal behaviour. The glaringly obvious question to ask is how this would have played out with staff and the other passengers if the racially abusive man had been black and the old lady white?... The only thing clear from this video is that this man was committing a criminal offence and should have been dealt with as stipulated in law and yet for whatever reason @ryanair @ryanairholidays @cabincrewryanair failed to do so. Shame on you. #boycottryanair #ryanair #section39assault #assualt #section39 #humanrights #facts #racism #abuse #racialabuse #criminal #criminalact

You think it comes as an earthquake. It doesn’t, it comes as a slow rain. One drop at the time. One law changes. One wording is tweaked. And it always starts with the ones who already are marginalized. The ones we despise. The ones we laugh at. The ones we “don’t understand”. The ones we bully.
