Another fat butt squeezed in. Yes, there was a bit of space at a bench for three because the three Chinese ladies sitting on it were all skinny. ‘Excuse me’ was not a universal pass for bullying.

Maybe it was the coffee; Maybe it was the inspiration from my American history lessons, I spoke up for them after the ladies failed to complete their protest in English.

The Chinese is known for their civility, i.e. not to raise voice in the public, especially when facing an African American woman. There were plenty of people in the train. After I confronted the butt snuggler, the young Chinese guy standing next us watched the entire incident then shook his head. I don’t know if he disapproved the bullying, the ladies not be able to defend themselves, or my public discourse.
