“So I go to the next seat. Now, less than 2 (sic) mins later a man (who happens to be white) asks if he can sit there and she says why sure let me move my stuff. So I have to say something so I ask ummmmm did you just not want ME to sit next to you ? Were you scared ? Not comfortable with a Black Man sitting next to you ?”Thomas then took a picture of the woman and told her he was going to make a Facebook post about her, to which she replied she was going to get the conductor. However, the conductor turned out to be a big fan of Thomas’ so the woman ultimately backed down. Thomas’ post has since blown up with over 37,000 shares and fans coming to his defense.
@etanthomas36 And shout out to you, brother, for handling this situation like a true professional…and a forthright, proud Black man.— Steve B.I.K.O. (@BIKOINC) May 21, 2016
@etanthomas36 What, you didn't know large Black men have cooties that are potentially deadly to dumb little white women.— Andre' R. Webster (@DatManDre) May 20, 2016
