A white man who was knocked unconscious after a shocking racist rant on the Central Line in which he referred to a group of black passengers as ‘pets’ has been unmasked today.
Footage posted online shows the man, – who has not yet been identified – in a heated confrontation with other passengers as the train pulls into Bank station in central London on Saturday evening.
The man, who has a shaved head and is wearing a blue T-shirt and beige shorts, is filmed shouting at a group of black passengers: ‘This is my home and you’re all going back. You know it as well.’
When asked by the group where they will be going back to, he shouts: ‘You know where you’re going back.’
The white man launched a bizarre and explicit rant which included racist language first at a group of black passengers before swearing at other passengers who tried to intervene
The white man yelled ‘they’re lesser than us’ and ‘they’re my pets’ in the direction of black passengers and when they got up to leave, the white man squared up with clenched fists
As the passengers ask him his name, he starts shouting ‘You’re black. Oh my god’ at the group while the woman filming asks ‘What’s that supposed to mean?’
The white man tells the camerawoman to shut up before the footage cuts to him swinging on the handrails singing ‘they’re lesser than us’ repeatedly and saying ‘you’re my pets’ in the direction of the group of young black men.
In a separate video, a passenger out of shot can be heard saying: ‘I think he has a death wish. I think he wants someone to jump in and kick his head in.’
The man then starts screaming the word ‘violence’, prompting a woman to accuse him of being ‘EDL scum’ – an apparent reference to the English Defence League.
The man shouts ‘I don’t roll with EDL scum’ before saying he’s worse than them in the passengers’ eyes and telling the woman to ‘f**k off c**t face.’
As the train pulls into Bank station, the group of black men get ready to leave, prompting the white man to shout ‘come on’ at them.
As the group of black men got up to leave, one of them turned and punched the white man clean in the face, knocking him unconscious as he fell back onto the floor of the train
While some passengers rushed to check his pulse and seek help, others cheered and clapped while the main remained unconscious, shouting ‘you deserved that’ and ‘don’t help a racist’
As they get up to leave, the white man squares up to them with clenched fists before one of three black men punch him in the face, causing him to fall backwards, unconscious on the floor of the train.
Passengers shout well done before someone off camera goes in to kick the now-unconscious white man in the arm and shouts ‘d**k head’.
As other passengers rush to check the man’s pulse and instruct others to call for help, people can be heard shouting ‘don’t help a racist’ and ‘you deserved that’ while he is put into the emergency position.
In longer footage, seen by the Mail Online, the man can be seen coming round but is told to stay lying down as staff members for TfL arrive on scene.
A British Transport Police spokesman said: ‘British Transport Police are aware of two videos on social media showing an incident on a Central Line Underground train on 15 August.
