Racism has heated up in the United States after a mentally ill black man killed five Dallas police officers and wounded seven others. People seem to be sitting on a very short fuse after this shooting, ready to ignite at the least provocation.
We can see a brief snapshot of that in a San Antonio, Texas restaurant where a teenage girl was having dinner with her family. An angry white woman yelled at her in an attitude of superiority, “My ancestors owned your ass.”
This white Texas woman was being ugly, shouting at the African-American teenager. So the black teen captured the encounter on her live Facebook page. The video was shared by Media Takeout.
Based on the video footage, the encounter went as follows:
A black family was seated at Chester’s Hamburgers in San Antonio after they attended religious services. We do not know what caused the black girl to say to the white woman, “Be respectful.”
But the white woman was furious and her husband tried to keep himself between her and the black family. The black teen started recording the event as she announced to her live Facebook followers:
‘So, Facebook, this is what racist people look like.’
The adults from both families got involved, telling each other to “shut the f*ck up.” Then the white man began throwing out racial slurs, calling the black family “god damn n*ggers.” His wife also cried, “You’re a f*cking n*gger!”
The young woman taping the event shouted back:
‘This is what racism looks like!’
Then a member of the black family shouted:
‘F*ck you, honky!’
The white man shouted in reply, “I can be a honky! I can be cracker too!” and the white woman yelled, “Take your n*gger ass back to Africa!”
One of the black women responded by saying, “I was born right here in America!”
Then the white woman shouted:
‘My ancestors owned your mother f*cking ass. My ancestors owned your ass, bitch. Black people don’t belong in America.’
The young black woman explained to her Facebook followers:
‘We’re monkeys, guys. That’s what they call us. They call us monkeys and n*ggers and nobody is paying attention.’
‘You know, I had to record it to let you all see. Because it’s real in San Antonio, too. For everyone who thinks it’s not real, it’s real in San Antonio.’
The white man did his best to control his wife, and eventually, they left. As she watched them go, the black teen said sadly:
‘That’s the problem though. You can’t fight these people because that’s how you end up in jail.’
‘Just so you know, racism is real out here.’
This is exactly how white-black violence begins in most instances: with harsh attitudes and ugly words torched by anger.
