So ... you ran away?

It's guys like you who give the color of truth to the guy just before you.

Wonderful. You get nearly mugged by ONE black man, and you see that as an excuse to demonize the whole race. I guess Jesse James proved that all whites are criminals, too?
7/6/2012 5:00:02 AM
So "Tamer of Savages" ran away leaving the coffee coloured Hindoo to face the savage beast. So much for the white man's burden....

Attempted mugging? The black guy offered to help, tried to start a conversation, and touched his shoulder, and this makes him a deadly beast? It's kind of sad to think some people live their lives so paranoid.
7/6/2012 5:38:44 AM
I suspect that Tamer's idea of a conversation probably consisted of him shouting racial slurs at this random passerby.

Only an American can be so sociopathic. The European far-right have all the faults of Americans and none of the virtues of Europeans, so they are no more European than Herman Cain. This also applies in reverse; American liberals are more truly European than they are American. I don't know how anyone could get to the point where they think that an offer of help is a prelude to murder. Clearly no one who is culturally European could think such a thing.
And I am perfectly aware that I am committing the most egregious form of the New True Scotsman fallacy. Between this and the Republican party platform, I am convinced that nothing can stop the USA from becoming a fascist corporatocratic theocracy. Stopping this is akin to throwing a pebble in Niagara Falls. Americans will despise rationality long after I am dead. My great-grandparents, who moved to this country, are surely spinning in their graves.

If that was an attempt at mugging, it was the most polite one ever.

Yeah, racists only exist here. Thanks for the tip, Headache, Jr.

The other side of the story:
The other night I was walking down the street and saw a taxi on the side of the road with the driver and a white guy trying to change a flat tire. I was tired of walking so walked up and offered to change the tire for them if I could get a free ride. They told me no, and with nothing else to do I decided to strike up a conversation with the white guy. He started freaking out screaming that he didn't have any change. He kept screaming until the taxi driver hailed another cab to get the guy out of there, then told me to get away from that guy because he's crazy. I tried to calm the guy down by putting my hand on his shoulder but he shoved me, then ran and jumped into the cab. After the cab left, the taxi driver and I looked at each other and said, "WTF was up with that guy?"

Indeed, Doubting Thomas. What one man calls running for your life from an evil savage, another may call a psychotic episode brought on by intense paranoia. I'd put my money on the latter, myself.

And scum like you are the first candidates for extinction, genetically speaking. Keep as close to your group as possible and breed yourself out of existence. Thank you.
7/6/2012 8:52:09 AM
Holy shit. This guy is so blatantly lying that even "Brutus", another racist, called bullshit on him in the very post from which this quote was found.
And pretty much used the same argument as Doubting Thomas. Freaking hilarious.
7/6/2012 9:27:18 AM
You call black people "beasts" and "savages" then you propose genocide.....
Who's the real monster?
BTW, how the hell could you see if his nostrils flared or not? Were you standing there watching him after you pushed him away? Then again I doubt this story ever happened. Let racists on forums tell it they've all run into what same black guy or black woman (they invariably make them sound like some IRL version of "Bix Nood"). The stories don't vary much about the alleged black person, just the scenario and variations in the alleged bravey of the racist dork "protagonist" in the story.

"Hey you folks seem to be in trouble. I'll gladly help but might I ask a favor in return?"
"Oh lord, it's an obvious mugger."
"I see you'd rather just wait for AAA. Oh well. Cabs take a while to get anywhere in this part of town so you might want some company. How about the game last night? Which team were you rooting for?"
"We have been standing here for several minutes with no demands being made of me, I am mere seconds from being cannibalized! Oh thank goodness, another cab!"
*Taps shoulder* "Uh, hey you want to share that cab? I wasn't kidding about them never coming here and I am seriously broke man."
"Aiieee! I'm being mugged! Run away and leave the other man behind as a sacrifice!"
"The hell, he shoved me? What was that guy's problem? Oh well, you want some help with that tire?"
7/6/2012 9:54:12 AM
@Wise Son & Flah - Good point. I didn't even think of that myself.
Assuming there is any truth to this story it doesn't even really sound like the black guy was doing anything wrong. At no point did he describe anything that implied the black guy was mugging them. He doesn't claim the black guy took out a weapon, demanded money or hit him or anything. So how do we know he was really trying to mug anyone? And if he was trying to mug people why was Mr. "Hindoo" able to calmly take him aside? Muggers don't usually shift their attention to conversing with another bystander trying to talk them down, they'd just attack or kill such a person.
I suspect this racist is paranoid that all black people are out to get him/mean him harm and he became delusional that he was being "mugged" because the black guy mentioned something related to money. The Indian guy probably saw how crazy the bigot was getting and took the black guy aside to reassure him. The black guy may have touched the bigot's shoulder to ask "What the hell is your problem?" or "Are you alright?" and the bigot freaked out even more.
That sounds far more plausible even given the description Mr. "Tamer of Savages" gave since nothing in the story sounds like menacing behavior from the black guy. If the black guy was a mugger why the hell would the Indian guy stay with him? The Indian guy probably suggested to the white bigot to get another taxi so the Indian guy wouldn't have to deal with that moron any longer.
BTW, some "Tamer of Savages". He ran away! So much for being a "tamer"....

You probably hit it square with that "other side" bit.
7/6/2012 12:25:13 PM
So... some idiot punk tried to mug you, therefore genocide is justified.
Makes perfect sense!
7/6/2012 2:29:18 PM
I hate to mention to you, Tamer of Savages, that you too are technically an immigrant if we want to go to that sordid place where thousands of people native to this land died because they were given smallpox blankets. Let's even further fail to mention that a man offering to change a tire for a free ride isn't savage, he's being nice. Let's even further fail to mention that your chance to "tame" a savage was a shove and an escape into another taxi. In true English, that defines you as a pussy like most racists like you until they band together into a group. And then, with much appreciation to a tawny skinned gentleman who "saved" your life, you call him a Hindoo. Makes you look ungrateful and stupid.
7/6/2012 3:49:32 PM
Reading that I think that "Tamer" kacked his pants, like many racist twonks before him.
7/7/2012 1:45:51 AM
At least one person in this scenario was drunk, and it wasn't the Hindu taxi driver.
7/7/2012 9:37:55 AM
Lovely. A black guy offers to help you and you turn around and advocate the deaths of billions. Worse than Hitler.
7/7/2012 11:21:04 AM
...ok, so a black guy tried to help you, you rejected his help, he tried to keep a couple of guys company by a broken taxi by talking with you, which you assumed was begging. Now, either you assume black people beg before they mug people, or he supposedly tried to mug you. Except by "mugging" it was something that involved just calling the guy over to the curb after hailing a cab for his passenger. So, what, no knife or gun or anything?
And even then, if he had a knife or a gun, you still would have run and let a guy who supposedly saved your life die?
I'd rather have that black guy around any day of the week than some uncivilized moron like yourself, Tamer.
7/7/2012 2:49:09 PM
You don't realize the danger he was in. don't you know that even a scrawny teenage black can turn a bag of skittles and a Snapple into DEADLY NINJA WEAPONS!!!
