Young Woman Stands Against Hate In NYC Subway And We're All Feeling Inspired

By Mark Pygas

People are applauding a young Latina woman who intervened after she witnessed a woman in a headscarf being harassed by another woman. Footage of the exchange was first posted to Live Leak, before it was shared again on Facebook by the I'm Still So NYC Facebook page, where it's since been viewed over 1.5 million times.

The footage begins with an older woman yelling at a black woman wearing a headscarf and carrying a briefcase.
