Drunken white woman goes on racist tirade at black men outside a bar in viral video
A video of a drunk white woman spewing a tirade of racial slurs at two black men outside a bar in Kansas City caused a stir on social media. The unidentified woman was fired from her job, according to reports.
Drake Lewis, a 21-year-old photographer, was hanging around with his friend outside a bar Kansas City’s Power & Light District when they overheard a woman passing by and calling them the N-word. Outraged, Lewis told the woman to stop saying those things, but that only prompted her to start a vile tirade of racist epithets against the young men.
“So yesterday me and my homie Sam were out taking photos in the power and light district via KCMO when we overheard this lady say ‘these [expletive N-word]’ when we walked by,” Lewis wrote on Twitter. “I told her not to say that, and then I started recording.”
The video shows the inebriated woman holding a phone to her ear as she screams at Lewis “It is what it is. I’m a white [expletive] cracker, you a caramel [N-word].”
Lewis and his friend were amused at first, making fun of the woman and telling her to go away, but she kept on engaging in her violent language. “You got a problem with this old woman, white [expletive] cracker? Get the [expletive] out of my face,” she says while she gets closer to the men, apparently trying to provoke them.
After sharing the video, which has earned over 232k reproductions on twitter and even more on his Facebook, people asked Lewis why didn’t he attack the woman instead of allowing her to disrespect them like that, but he was level-headed about it, as he wrote:
“Think about how the situation would have been different if it went that way. That’s exactly what racist white people WANT us to do. And that is incorrect. We don’t use fire to fight fire. We use water.”
The young man told the Kansas City Star that the incident was random but that it affected his friend more than him. Sam is Samoan-American and has been called the N-word in the past. “He gets it all the time,” Lewis said.
According to the news site, a now deleted comment under the Facebook video posted by Lewis revealed that the woman, still unidentified, had been fired from her job. The employer, who asked to remain anonymous, confirmed to The Star that she had fired the woman because of the video.
This is just one of the many racial incidents that have taken place in the U.S this year. Just a few weeks ago, a woman accused a 9-year-old boy of sexual harassment, claiming that he had touched her butt.
However, after making a scandal, calling the cops, and scaring the boy, footage from surveillance cameras showed that the boy had accidentally brushed his backpack as he went out of a grocery store.
