    Yeah, well, there's always that.

    Yeah, dude deserved to be punched. He was being an ass. He shouldn't have shoved the guy. It's that simple.

    You can't expect to talk all that racist talk (and be outnumbered to boot!) and not expect to have your clock cleaned by the only Black guy standing there who your hatred is directed at (let alone the fact that you shoved the guy). I'd have knocked the guy out, too, had he talked all that mess then shoved me on top of it.

    No, but I think we saw enough to conclude that nobody was willing to throw a punch - not even the older White guy spewing racist comments even when he approached the younger Black guy earlier in the video with his fist balled up - until the White guy shoved the Black guy. Until that point, everyone seemed fine with yelling back and forth just to be heard.

    Re: Did this racist deserve to get punched?

    1. I don't know why but English people cursing or getting upset just makes me giggle. It sounds so polite and filthy at the same time. And since the main time I hear British Accents is Doctor Who I kept expecting to hear a wooshing noise and see Peter Capaldi show up on scene (he could do a much better job cursing than any of those ****ity ****s)

    2. The guy didn't "deserve" to be punched because of the racist crap he was saying, but it absolutely wouldn't have been surprising if someone punched him for that and he'd get no sympathy from me for it. While you don't deserve to get assaulted for things you say that doesn't change that you definitely contributed to the situation that caused it.

    3. The moment he invaded the black guys space, after such ranting, THEN the "deserving" factor of the punch increases as it creates a threatening situation where I could understand the young man acting. The moment he placed his hands on the young man he deserved to be decked and I'm glad he was.

    Fantastic!

    Thank you OV..I was just wondering why he adopted this stance..Did something happen before? Although I am not OK with his comments...Doormen on night club duty are not known for their IQ's

    I need to see the whole picture..maybe the black guy's were being racist to him..who knows?....

    Or maybe he was just a bigot?

    Can't watch the video now, but I'll just say that, like in that "Is assassination ever justified?" thread, while I don't believe in punching racists, I don't want to say there's never a correct time for it.
