DAILYKENN.com --A St. Louis area school bus driver was beaten by a stick, dragged off her bus, and pummeled by two angry black women. The driver is also a black woman.
The women were apparently irked after a student was transferred to another bus due to fighting.
• The incident was captured on video. We wonder: How many other such violent crimes occur that are not recorded and fly under the media's radar?
• The incident explains school segregation. Schools were racially segregated in some parts of the United States to protect white students and staff members from black violence.

Two women have been charged in connection with an attack on a school bus driver. The victim's attorney says she is struggling following the attack.
Ty'Andra Williams, 30, is facing charges for endangering the welfare of a child, assault, and trespassing on a school bus. Williams was arrested and bond was set at $20,000 cash-only.
Tiffany Racquel Pruitt, 32, is facing an assault charge. Pruitt has not been arrested.
According to court documents, school bus driver Patrula Griffin was picking up students from KIPP Victory Academy. After a fight between two students, she transferred one of them to another bus. The student transferred to another bus is Williams's daughter.
When the bus arrived in the 900 block of O'Fallon, Williams boarded it. Griffin told Williams she was not allowed on board.
Police said that is when Williams started hitting Griffin. Court documents say Pruitt helped Williams drag Griffin off the bus and aided in the attack.
