Another racist act was caught on video. It shows a man shouting at a Dunkin’-Baskin Robbins employee and calling her the n-word.
The viral video depicts the man briefly threatening to report the employee to her manager before he descends into yelling obscenities at her.
He repeated the n-word word multiple times in the video before leaving the store, only to pop back in the window to show his middle finger when he realized someone was filming him.
Watch the video here.

The video doesn’t show it, but a witness reported the man was upset about having to wait. There was only one employee working at the time and she was helping another customer.
A witness told local news the man grew impatient because the staffer was giving a child ice cream.
This video is only the most recent viral video of racist acts making the rounds on the internet.
How do new things like this happen every day?
People who saw the video were appalled.
This is horrible!!!

Others vowed to act.
I solemnly pledge that I will not stand idly by while others are harassed in my presence.
I will speak up, stand up, defend & protect to the best of my ability all who are targeted by hate or ignorance.
I recognize that change starts with me & I pledge to be that change! ✌️❤️????

When I see this bullshit I wish with all my heart I was there to let him know just how alone he is in his racism. This kind of shit drives me mental and I’m white. I can’t stand to see it, I can’t stand to watch racism. I want to let them just how much WE don’t want to hear it!

What the hell was that?! Is this who we are as a nation? I used to be so proud to be American. We need to find out who this man is and his boss needs to see this. pic.twitter.com/cr5qukF8sB

White people are going to have to step up and do something . We can’t just leave it to the black community to fend for themselves. White people need to take care of this. We started it , it’s time to end it.

However some people can find the humor in even the worst situations.
Racist: “Wait, I know I’m easy to identify because I’m seven feet tall, but did I give them a really clear view of my face as well?”

White ppl throw out the N word when angry like they think the black person will just collapse and die. He seemed way more bothered than the young woman did. LOL

Well, at least he had the decency to give us a good shot of his face at the end. That was decent of him!
