Project 1619 creator mocks New York mom after disrupting subway ride

The 1619 Project founder has set her sights on a Brooklyn mother who expressed concern after a disturbing subway ride in the Democratic-run city.

Education activist Yiatin Chu became the butt of mockery from non-historian Nikole Hannah-Jones after she relayed in a social media post about her journey experience, the New York Post reported Saturday.

“I paid $2.75 to be in a subway car with a loud, aggressive man threatening to hit his female partner. Cars changed at next stop to be in a public restroom/smell of urine, car packed for the rest of my ride. This is @KathyHochul and @NYCMaire‘s NYC,” Chu wrote, to add later, the two Democratic leaders “own it” and “said it themselves”.

In response, Hannah-Jones retweeted Chu’s post and wrote“Yes yes. It was unheard of in the subways until two years ago.

However, Chu responded with explaining“I’ve been taking the metro since the 1980s. It’s not new but it’s more widespread and it’s not getting better.

“Our elected officials said they would fix it but we haven’t seen any improvements. Why should we agree to these terms for our travels,” she noted:

Some users seemed follow Hannah-Jones lead in targeting Chu, but others agreed with the concerned mother.

“The Metro, like everything else in this city, has been in decline for some time now. Since January 1, 2014, the day Bill DeBlasio took office. Like an avalanche, it’s been gaining momentum. NYers have every right to expect a safe city. Which will never happen with Left/Progressives,” one user commented.

“Nikole grew up in Iowa. Yiatin grew up in Queens. Yiatin went to public school in Queens as an English language learner and commuted to Bronx Science as a teenager in the 80s … some of us have decades of life in New York to draw on, not just the last two years (admittedly garbage),” another person replied at Hannah Jones.

In the days before Chu wrote about her own experience, a woman was accused of punching a ten-year-old girl and her mother in the face as they rode the subway, Breitbart News reported.

“The New York City subway system has recently been riddled with violent crime, including fatal stabbings, stabbings on tracks, and numerous other violent crimes,” the outlet said.

In May, Breitbart News described Hannah-Jones as “the mind behind the ‘1619 Project,’ a series of stories in the New York Times this attempt to distort and discredit American history and its foundation.
