S(o)uper Star: This NYC Rapper Threw Soup At L-Train Racist

"It takes a lot of risk, trying to stand up to racists and bigots".

Princess Nokia is a soup-er star.

After swaying through the train and jumping up and down, the man tells annoyed commuters "Who cares?" and shouts incoherently about the First Amendment.

The man was filmed on a NY train using the N-word repeatedly while distressing other passengers.

University spokesperson John Beckman has confirmed that the man, Paul Lawson did not attend NYU Law. "Any other racists wanna try us again?" the 25-year-old Harlem artist tweeted.

It wasn't the first time Frasqueri stood up for herself or others.




"You can't push me and make it seem like I'm the aggressor", he says after the man left the train.

The video depicts a man yelling the n-word on a train while several people confront him for his behavior. In the end it's just good to see New Yorkers coming together and soup going to such great use out there. "Everybody's going to know what a bigot you are".

"This bigot called a group of teenage boys "n*ggers" on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up", writes Nokia.

Frasqueri isn't visible until she steps forward, wearing an orange dress, to bravely lob the bowl of soup in Lawson's face as he tried stepping back on the train for his bag at the Bedford Ave. stop in Brooklyn. "When I slapped him he called me a [n-word], and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me".

He's since addressed the video in a series of Facebook posts. He said he used the word to "mak [e] a point" and that he feels "bad" but he's "not that sorry".

Upon doing so, the entire train came together and helped get the guy off the train together. The local outlet also reports that Lawson said he was a "race-baiter in this context, not a racist", and that he "enjoys getting a rise out of people".
