Public Shame

"Some time ago, I had an injured leg (which was bandaged then) and went on a bus. The bus was very crowded, and I spend some time waiting for a seat. It occurred to me that no one gave up their seat for the injured man. Finally, the lady who was sat in front of me stood up to leave. I was ready to take over the seat, but what she said afterwards shocked me. Instead she offered her seat to a caucasian lady standing next to me. The caucasian lady was not pregnant or anything, so I was rather irritated, offended and also disgusted. I am a human, too aren't I? Is it not so that I am not supposed to be treated like any other?"
