Behold! A White Jogger Screams “White Privilege” in Brooklyn!

Brooklyn is becoming more and more gentrified as the years go by. Many of the borough’s old residents are being forced out because of the rise of rent costs. Traditional Black communities beyond Williamsburg and Bushwich, like BedStuy and East New York, are seeing an increase of hipsters and the White middle class.

But one Brooklyn jogger, who is White, is fed up with the sense of entitlement by some of Brooklyn’s new residents.

While jogging, another man, who is also White, bumped the jogger’s legs with the stroller he was pushing. This is when all hell broke loose on this downtown Brooklyn street.

In the video, which was recently snatched from YouTube, so you’ll have to view here, the jogger screams, “The only reason White people like you are living here is because I settled this fucking neighborhood for you!”

He continues his rant, “White privilege! White fucking privilege! You pushed your stroller right into me, and all I say was ‘excuse you,’ and then you said, ‘fuck you, fuck you!’ You fucking White trash!”


This is likely not the jogger’s first encounter with that type of crazy. But we have to say, there’s loads of New Yorkers who agree with his sentiments!

There goes the neighborhood.
