YouTube - A fight starts over spaghetti on NYC subway

I know I'm a little late on this subject but I haven't had a chance to watch this video until now. I can't hear everything that was said and I'm generally disappointed by the way ALL young people behave in public these days but it looks to me like this heifer wanted some spaghetti in her face when she opened up her mouth and called that young woman an animal. I would also like to note that I have heard white people refer to people of color as "animals" on numerous occasions. That she found this young woman's behavior--sitting down on an uncrowded train eating spaghetti (which isn't generally considered to carry an offensive odor) with a fork--animalistic is quite suspect to me. But hey, maybe she was really hungry and was on a starvation diet so she didn't want to smell food. All I'm saying is that I have been on many a subway car with rowdy ass youths whose behavior significantly imposed upon my rights as a passenger and generally made me sad for the future of America but this woman seems to have overreacted in this situation. Although, I think that the spaghetti girls could have chosen their words a little better among other things, I don't think they behaved unreasonably for the most part. I would have thrown spaghetti at that bitch if she called me an animal. What do you think?
