A white woman in Manassas, Virginia was on her cell phone in a mall seeking help finding another store when a Hispanic man offers help. She racially attacks him and complains that he speaks Spanish.
“I’m in Manassas, in the ghetto,” the woman begins on the phone. She then goes on to tell the store representative on the phone that two out of the five stores she’s been to haven’t been helpful.
“They have one in Fairfax,” a man offers from off-camera.
“I wasn’t talking to you,” the woman snaps back at the man. She then berates him for speaking to her. “You better watch who the f*ck you’re talking to ’cause I’m not the one.”
We soon find out he’s of Hispanic descent. “My name’s Juan,” he says, offering a “dad joke” and playing on the word “one.”
“I don’t give a f*ck what your name is,” the woman responds, missing the joke. She then asks Juan if he sees her husband standing there, implying that her husband will beat him up. “I ain’t scared of no f*cking sp*c,” she says. “This is my f*cking country.”
Juan leaves and tells the woman, “Take it easy.”
The woman mutters, “He needs to take his f*cking *ss back to Mexico” as Juan leaves. She then says to her husband, “You wanna go outside and fight him? That might be your chance so you can really get some blood out of that fat talker… So disrespectful to speak another language in my country.”
The video was shared on Twitter by Shaun King, African-American writer and civil rights activist. It got nearly 25,000 retweets.
It comes just days after a similar video went viral where a white man attacked an American man of Puerto Rican descent in an airport in Nevada for speaking Spanish.
