A VIDEO of a black woman allegedly being racially abused on a bus in Vitoria Wednesday afternoon, has gone viral.
Footage shows the woman being asked to ‘close’ her daughter’s scooter by the driver, in ‘accordance with regulations’, as it was apparently causing an obstruction.
He tells the mother that ‘every day is the same’ and ‘tomorrow you do not ride on the bus’, to which she replies that her daughter has ‘special needs’. During the exchange of words, the woman dismisses the driver as ‘racist’.
Another passenger can be heard in the background shouting at the woman, ‘I am a military man and I have been killing people like you for 20 years’.
Itziar Gonzalo, president of the municipal bus company Tuvisa, issued a statement assuring that information is being gathered ‘to try to know exactly what happened’, which will be passed to the Board of Directors.
