3/10/04 subway:

I was about to step off the red line at State/Lake in the a.m. when a black guy snapped at some lady, calling her a dumb ass honkey. He said she was trying to be a man and he would whump her punk ass. She said, "oh, yeah? I don't think you can!" and stepped up to him. He snapped, "You prejudiced white bitch!" He kept screaming. People rushed to get off the train. She got off, too. He made his way towards the back with people parting in a slight panic. I don't think anybody would have had the guts to protect the woman. Their faces said, "Oh crap. Not this. I'm on my way to work."
