We really have no idea how many crazy old white people are roaming the streets of the Bay Area in Northern California (maybe the census can tell us?), but we’ve already had to adjust our count from two to one. That’s based on the fact that the 67-year-old white guy in the AC Transit Showdown of 2010 and the crazy cook that got himself tased during an Oakland A’s game last August are one and the same.
Troy Holden of CaliberSF, notes that in 1996, “I was working at the intersection of 2nd & Market. Each and every day the man pictured above would walk by my shop, wave a loaf of sourdough in my face, and scream obscenities about the San Francisco 49′ers [sic].”
The woman who made the video, Oakland-area college student Ilyanna Washington, was interviewed by CBS (un-embed-able video here). She says The Black Guy was drunk (I guess we’re just calling them The Black Guy and The White Guy now) and that The White Guy took a walk around the block and then waited for police to arrive.
When asked to describe the incident in a word, she semi-jokingly responded, “Oakland.” –SFist
Washington was facing threats for stealing The White Guy’s brown shoulder bag (which I didn’t even notice at first; go to the 2:20 mark of the video for that). But nobody has found out who the girl in the purple tights is. I can only hope that I can qualify her as something sports-related. Big ups to Jonathan Sacks of Sports Rubbish and Examiner for the heads-up.
