Moment drunk racist woman shouts 'Go back to Africa' at black students on a bus

A drunk racist woman shouted ‘Go back to Africa’ at a group of black friends on a bus.

The woman also used the N word in her vile rant in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday.

She abused a group of international students while they were out celebrating a birthday.

One of the victims, Shola, 24, said the middle-aged woman’s tirade left the birthday girl in tears.

In the disturbing clip, the woman racially abuses the students and bus driver after an alleged argument about social distancing.

She is filmed repeatedly calling them the N word and shouting at the group and the driver to ‘Go back to Africa’.

A physical fight then erupts between the appalled passengers and the racist woman – who is seen drinking a small bottle of wine throughout the clip.

Eventually she storms off the bus defiantly shouting: “I can’t sit here with all these black c***s!”

The incident appears to have erupted over an alleged argument about passengers not adhering to social distancing on the bus and the bus driver is seen intervening in the fight.

The masked middle-aged woman adamantly shouts: “I have a health issue! I don’t want coronavirus!”

But the bus driver warns her she cannot racially abuse passengers because of that, saying: “You can’t call them names”.

The racist tells the driver to keep the passengers away from her, prompting him to warn her he would kick her off the bus if she continued the abuse.

The woman then yells back: “Go ahead! I’ll walk home! I’ll walk home! You can’t walk home to Africa!”

Other passengers asks the driver why the woman could not be removed from the vehicle and one female student is filmed in tears over the incident as her friend is heard trying to console her.

The woman then shouts at the passenger to “go f**k yourselves. Go ahead. Go back to Africa. It’s a long walk!”

She continues at the passenger filming, screaming: “F**k you and your camera! Shove that up your hole!”

A young female passenger then approaches the racist woman and squares up to her as she stands up from her seat.

She then pushes the older woman, sparking a fight between them, before a friend restrains her and the hateful passenger resumes her rant.

She screams: “F*****g (N word). I am racist from Ireland!”

Other passengers then stand up to the racist woman and tell her that she is disgusting. The middle-aged woman retorts: “Well you’re disgusting too!!”

The brave passenger argues back: “Well I’m Irish and it’s f*****g disgusting! You’re a disgrace to the country! Get off the bus!”

The racist then screams back: “F**k off you blonde c**t.”

She then takes off her face mask and drinks her wine, before eventually getting off the bus, declaring: “I can’t sit here with all these black c***s.”

Speaking about the incident, Shola, who did not want her full name used, told Dublin Live : “My friends and I were out in Dundrum at the mini-golf for one of my friend’s birthdays.

“We were getting the bus back when this lady started being racist towards us on the top deck of the bus.

“Firstly she said she ‘didn’t want any virus’ off some of my friends and was screaming and getting really abusive.

“She wouldn’t get off and was getting more and more abusive, everyone on the bus was in disbelief, the driver stopped the bus and told her she would have to get off.

“I was in disbelief too, this is the first time something like this has ever happened to me, my friend’s birthday was ruined, she was crying.

“The abuse went on for like 10 minutes, she called us the N word multiple times, told us to ‘Go back to Africa’ and said we should get off the bus as she was there first.”

Shola, originally from Nigeria, said she has been studying in Dublin since January 2019 but had never experienced racism before.

She added: “It is so sad that we have to go through this, where I am from I would never see anyone else as beneath me, everyone is equal.

“Why would someone treat me like I’m not a human like everyone else, it really shook me.”

The young lady said that the woman eventually left the bus and that other passengers tried to intervene labelling her a “disgrace”.

She also praised the Dublin Bus driver who confronted the woman and said he would report the incident.

The appalling incident took place on the no.44 bus at around 7pm on Sunday.

A Garda spokesman said they were aware of the video and were investigating it.

They added: “An Garda Síochána has not received a report of any incident which occurred on the 13th September 2020 on public transport in Dundrum.

“An Garda Síochána takes hate crime seriously, and each and every hate crime reported to us is professionally investigated and victims supported during the criminal justice process.

“The Garda Diversity and Integration Strategy 2019 – 2021 has a significant focus on enhancing the identification, reporting, investigation and prosecution of hate crimes and An Garda Síochána is taking actions to improve internal recording and encourage more reporting by the public.

“An Garda Síochána would encourage anyone who feels they have been the victim of a hate crime to report the matter directly to An Garda Síochána and not to 3rd parties or on social media.”
