    first

  2. Nicholas Stix says:

    One of the plaintiffs reportedly said, "We still feel this is all about race." Indeed, but not the way she meant it. It is a deliberate racist shakedown. I call 'em The Shakedown Sistas.

    The company they are shaking down was foolish to apologize to them. You don't apologize to racist criminals who are targeting you.

    Only in America, Look at me "i'm going to play a racial card get me some money and enjoy the life. "The rest of the people who were in the train should sue them for 1mill each for being to loud and preventing everyone else enjoy the trip…

    i dont understand how u can judge without proof like if the roles were reversed and u were one of those women in a black society singled out how would u feel. like its easy to judge what u see but not actually have any proof to justify ur beliefs seriously how childish is that. u don't no if its a race card or if they really were discriminated against all u know is how to eat whatever the perpetrator dishes out.
    lol maybe people who jump right into a topic that has to do with black people in the most negative way are racist i guess I'm pulling the racist card in a society that unless u r black or of any other race besides white u honestly would not understand the discrimination that is very apparent. But hey I'm black and have not experienced any discrimination at least not that I'm aware of but that don't mean it does not happen.

    OMG! They looks so fun, beautiful and intelligent. Shame on the company for kicking them off that train. What a disgrace!

  6. El Gringo says:

    this country is too far gone, killed by extreme left progressive policies and corporate interests. Its becoming a society where everything is being dumbed down to accommodate the lowest common denominator of society

  7. El Gringo says:

    BTW, this is called winning the ghetto lotto. Just ask any inner city school district or police department where outrageous racial accusations somehow equal to financial payouts.

  8. Ernest Green says:

    Black women are loudest most obnoxious group of people in the world! They were told 3 times to keep it down but true to form the ghetto came out "girl I know you ain't telling me to be quiet….you be quiet….I paid my money…blah blah blah… Heard it a million times!

  9. Somewhat informed says:

    these women were so embarrassed that their behavior was pointed out as being socially unacceptable that they decided to sue instead of changing their behavior. don't make black people angry

  10. Ludivine Witenberg says:

    Good.

  11. Ludivine Witenberg says:

    I hope they will win.

  18. peedy says:

    White ppl are the devil.

  19. AMBER TWIGG says:

    makes it worse is the racist that reports it, gives it to a racist worker to a racist supervisor, to a racist boss to racist cops/security. not one spoke out to stop it. they stood by. yes some spoke up after the fact but is that just to be on tv or to look better so they dont get threats and to look better? IDK then the big boss puts out the lies to be erased after. another racist only fix it for the mess went all viral they thought they could bully their opinions on to others. then it back fired. Shame on you napa Valley Wine Train. Rosa Parks all i can think of. hope you all win. the humility the stares apology is not enough. new owner or not i will not go on it, bet same workers same police. nope not for me.

  20. kevin wh says:

    They were afraid that if blacks were allowed to ride the train they would scare off the white passengers. The staff on the train were just trying to manufacture a reason to kick them off.

  21. Jacklynn Jackson says:
