    advice to the well-educated: if a (very polite) sister with a blond weave and a conductor's badge tells you not to put your hands on her, you better listen

    Saw this segment last night, and I have to say it gave me pause. I am not sure that showing that woman being so rude, helped any of us to be kinder or more polite. Maybe, but my guess is empathy is the key to a more respectful world. Yeah, Yeah, I get the point no one is better than anyone else and nothing can justify that kind of behavior. But, did you have to show that lady being crazy? Perhaps she was premenstrual. Anyway, let's just be kind to one another and make sure WE don't say anything rude to other people. I think my son's Kindergarten teacher said something close to that to the children in her class.

    I feel kind of bad for the "Educated Lady" because, as Anderson has said, we don't know what really went on before this video was taken. She probably felt like she was being targeted because of her race, and she automatically went on the defense thinking that the conductor thought she was some uneducated immigrant who couldn't stand up for herself. Notice how she kept repeating that she was educated? For all we know, she could've just been calmly sitting there having a conversation on her cell phone like most people do everyday in a public place. I've seen this video numerous times, and each time I feel worse for her because we don't know her side of the story.

    Anderson I have always admired your diligence in knowing the full story before making judgment. I dont see that in this case.
