This is good to see, not the racism, but the bystander who refuses to sit by and watch it happen. 

Stacey Eden, 23, stood up to a woman verbally abusing a Muslim family sat opposite her on public transport. In her Facebook post (below) Stacey describes how she’d listened to the woman badmouth the Muslim family for a few minutes before deciding to film her treacherous tirade. 

So i sat there for a good 10 minutes before i started recording this, while i listened to this woman bad mouth muslims and call the lady sitting opposite me an ISIS supporter because she wore a scarf, then she told me to go join ISIS because i was sticking up for her. People like this make me sick. People who are so ignorant and disrespectful to other people who were clearly sitting there minding their own business. She was saying some pretty horrible and hurtful things before i spoke up then as soon as i started defending them she stopped. People need to stop judging and putting others down over religion! EVERY RELIGION HAS GOOD AND BAD but if you take it back to the foundations, every religion is also built on LOVE. To LOVE one another.The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticise others.

The incident happened as the couple got on a train at Sydney International Airport. Nothing like a war welcome is there.

Stacey’s upload to Facebook now has over 13,000 likes and 2,000 shares. Well done Stacey, her attitude is a great example of what we need.
