SEATTLE-Jim Hardie, a white Iraq veteran brawled with several African American bus patrons after he became fed up with their use of the n-word and the b-word and confronted them on it.
After Hardie expressed his disapproval of their language, the passengers attacked Hardie and he was successful in fighting the three assailants off the bus.
KING 5 reports:
But instead of turning the other way, he looked at them and said “Given the nature of what we’ve gone through with the word n***** it’s not appropriate to loosely throw that word around or refer to white women as white b***** and I’d appreciate if they stopped that.”
That’s when Jim says the guys focused in on him, arguing – then hitting – before jumping off the bus.
