    Erm... at what point were we suppose to assume this was racist? Because she`s black it must mean the police have to be racist to arrest her? Stupid caption.

    dear god, read the article before just crying racism
    "Amtrak does have a policy that riders can’t use cell phones in designated “quiet cars,” like the one in which Beard was riding."

    Now what kind of person would think they can do as they please no matter what the rules are,I dont know what kind of person would be loud and obnoxious in a designated quiet area (like a movie theater), or loud and obnoxious in a public place (the mall, or McDonald`s ) Just what kind of person would do that ....oh wait, never-mind its a ignorant nignog

    "Salem police reported she had been on the phone non-stop since the train pulled out of Oakland, Calif. 16 hours earlier."

    As far fetched as that sounds I can believe it.

    I think putting a snippet of the actual story in the caption would have been better.
    "Silent car rules, Enforced",
    or if you want a cliff hanger,
    "Woman kicked off train, you wont guess why"

    She was apparently yelling into her cell phone, and there were a number of complaints from passengers. If I blare my radio in an apartment, my neighbors have the right to call the cops on me for making too much noise. I don`t see how this is any different, it`s not racial. Unless of course you consider talking loudly on a cell phone a racial thing.

    Ugh, welcome to my life. My Dad could easily talk on the phone for the entire 16 hour trip. I`ve given up asking him to shut up, he really doesn`t understand that his constant endless boring incessant conversations are extremely annoying. He thinks nobody can hear him while he shouts on the phone everywhere he goes.

    And she was also sitting in a quiet car where cell phones and talking loudly are not permitted. The rules are posted and they had every right to boot her lard... er, loud ass.

    Maybe you`re right and maybe you`re wrong, however, I have never... ever seen any other race speak loudly and with inconsideration over the phone in public spaces.

    Also, true justice would have been her coming off the train in a body bag.

    i just assumed she did something wrong. my assumption was wayyyy off though. i thought they had stopped a wanted man masquerading as a woman, and they had to stop the train to arrest her/him. it`s much lamer that she just wouldnt shut the f><ck up.

    Also, in no way is this raciest! She did this to herself. taking the train is in no way like flying or taking the bus. you can get up and move around. she could have gotten up and move to another car (there is not assigned seating as long as the train isnt full)or even gone to the viewing car (where there would have been more room for her lard ass).

    This is in no way racist. It`s just an idiot being an idiot. Race has nothing to do with it. I`m glad they hauled her off of the train. If she couldn`t respect the people around her and all of the signs saying it was a quiet car, she didn`t deserve to ride.

Not every single moment in your heavily blessed life is going to be sugar coated. Damn.

    Good. I don`t see any racism here. She was being obnoxious, she was violating Amtrak`s policy, and when they asked her to stop, she refused. She was creating a disturbance, so they called the police.

    I wish more bus drivers in Portland would enforce their No Loud Talking policy. Some do, but other times they just ignore it. The most obnoxious example was a woman screaming into her cellphone about how the bus driver was driving extra slowly to make her late. The bus was actually right on schedule and driving with the flow of traffic. She got on the bus too late to make it to her destination on time, plain and simple. Nobody told her to stop, probably because she also said to her friend on the other end that if anyone said a damn thing to her, she was gonna fcuk them up. I should have just put on my headphones and blasted music to drown her out, but I was kind of mesmerized.

    @YuliasAcups- It says in the article that she was confronted about her behavior, after which she became "aggressive." It`s not like they just hauled off and called the cops with no warning. Although it is pretty ridiculous that they waited SIXTEEN HOURS to finally say something to her.

    @ihurtmyself (and others, for that matter)- how fcuking ignorant can you be. This woman is rude, and you attribute it to her being black. If she were white, I can pretty much guarantee people wouldn`t be spouting off calling her a cracker b*tch.

    Rude person is rude. Period.
