    HMMmm honestly i think it would depend on the day. i have been in a situation where i've spoken up (adults making fun of a special needs kid) but i've been in others where i haven't .

    basically i think it's going to depend on
    a) how hornery i'm feeling that day
    b)if it looks like the person being picked on can't defend themselves
    c) if it looks like the people doing the discrimination might be able to kick my a$%

    Honestly, I would think that man is a punk for not standing up for his lady. I would be more likely to say she needs a new man that isn't afraid to defend her and their relationship.

    Basically.

    I read about this a few days ago. I understand that they were actors and he remained silent purposely; but if this were a real life situation- he'd get the MAJOR side-eye from me. At the very least I would expect him to get up from the chair and tell old girl that he's not going to pay her if she keeps insulting his girlfriend.

    To answer the OP's question; generally, I don't get involved in grown folks' business like that. I figure that the girlfriend is an adult, she should be able to fend for herself. But if the black woman was getting on MY nerves enough, I might do a "Now, you know you're wrong for that. Leave that girl alone" in a half-joking half-serious tone, but that's as far as I would go. I'd leave it up to the girl friend's "black knight in shining armor" to come to her rescue. And then I'd definitely clown HIM if he didn't.

    It depends on how bad a mood I'm in as to whether I get vocal or not. I don't like to open my mouth and butt into people's business - normally - unless something serious is going on - But I would EXPECT any man to have enough respect for his girlfriend to quit acting like such a jerk and hurting her regardless of the situation.

    GF needs to stand up for herself and being in an IR may mean she has to do that more often than the rest of us BUT she shouldn't put up with any disrespect from some random woman hitting on her BF.

    If this happened in London knowing how crazy people are I would not challenge anyone holding a scissors. I would expect the guy to stand up for his woman.
