"Why is there a f***ing dog on the bus? Get it off!" the unnamed woman screamed.

When Megan tried to explain that Rowley was her assistance dog, the woman went on to call Megan a liar and argued that "guide dogs are yellow, not black."
Fucking LOL.

sadly animals are targetted for color too. I remember being told that black cats were more likely to be targetted by bad people.

Awful story. She was spat at too? What is wrong with people?

But also... you can train a dog to empty the washing machine? Might have to get me a Labrador pup.

Please I hope that no one is implying that it has to do with some racial thing.
That woman was just to dumb to realize that an assistant dog can have many colors.

"Guide dogs are yellow, not black."

How did she get this far in life?

I need to know if this person voted for Trump or not for some research I'm doing.

Black dogs are apparently adopted the least.
What you are referring to is called Black Dog Syndrome, and there's a debate over whether or not it's real. A lot studies don't show it to be. It may be one of those things where it's generally believed - even by people who work at shelters - but it doesn't pan out. I know a few nurses who swear by the full moon stuff (more injuries, births, etc.) even though the numbers show that's not true at all. Or in short: confirmation bias.
I mean ha ha funny joke OP but these kinda inflammatory titles especially during Black History Month is a little bit tasteless.
Yeah.

To be fair buses in the UK seem to have a mandatory 'fucking-mentalist' policy. If there's not some crazy person who smells of piss either being annoying, weird, or aggressive (or all three) then you feel like something isn't right.

What the actual fuck. It's a Labrador, their breed has multiple colours. Even then this is no justification. When did I wake up in this parody world?

For a second I thought it was the blind woman yelling. Don't know how to read.

Back to topic, poor dog. It is so cute and beautiful. Fuck that woman. Racism knows no bounds.
