Woman goes on racist rant, says she wants the entire U.S. to be white in viral video
On a new episode of ‘white people caught on camera being racist,’ a woman from Arizona went viral after stating that she wants the entire US to be white. It all happened because a latin woman asked if she could sit next to her.
Lennys Bermudez took to Facebook to share a video of her encounter with a racist lady at the Wildflower Bread Company, a restaurant in North Phoenix. According to her recounter of the situation, Bermudez was waiting for her electric car to recharge and was looking for a place to sit.
She noticed the place was full so she asked, out of pure courtesy, if she could sit next to a lady that was reading over some paperwork. The woman allegedly replied with “do I have a choice?” without even looking at Bermudez, so she asked the woman to say that again and apparently, the lady said she preferred white people.
That’s when Bermudez started recording. “Well, I’ve never been told someone prefers whites,” she can be heard saying in the video, to which the other woman angrily replies "Yes that would be me. I prefer the whole freaking nation to be white. How about that?"
When Lennys told the woman that it was never going to happen, she then responded with
"Oh, it's going to happen. You're going to be wiped out. Trust me."
Bermudez then starts explaining the situation in the video, as the other woman notices that the table next to her is empty and starts moving her stuff there under the skeptical eye of Bermudez. At some point, the manager kicked out the woman from the restaurant and later walked Bermudez to her car for safety.
HOPING FOR A CHANGE
"I know that the scars of racism run deep in this great country I love. Being Puerto Rican, I am a proud American ...and equally proud Puerto Rican . This lady was lucky my PR-ness didn’t come out!!” Lennys wrote on her Facebook post.
The video has now earned 634k views, over 3k shares and thousands of comments from people that, like Bermudez, can’t believe the level of blatant racism being displayed by the woman in the video.
"I wish for a world for my children and my children’s children’s to never worry about this stuff...but then again, we are who we are,” Bermudez concluded her rant.
Racist incidents that have been caught on camera have been rampant in the US this year, and the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) has recorded a rise in hate crime, with almost 60% of these being racially motivated, and African-Americans being the most targeted group.
According to Indy 100, the report states that under Donald Trump's administration, "anti-black, antisemitic, anti-gay and anti-Latino are the most common types of hate crimes.”
Following this incident, two African American siblings became the next victims of a white woman showing her racist side.

The woman, later identified as Susan Westwood, asked the women on repeated occasions if they lived in the Camden View Apartments and how much rent they were paying. "Do you live here?" she said. "Why do we feel that we need to be here like hanging out? Let's call 911. I want to make sure there's nothing going on here."
In her 911 call, Westwood falsely accusing the sisters of trying to break into the departments, stating that they were “African Americans” and just wanted to “cause trouble.”
"We are so distraught and still very upset about what has taken place only because of the color of our skin," the sisters told Channel 9. "It is so upsetting to know that today we still have this overt racism going on in 2018.”
Westwood turned herself to authorities weeks after the incident and was charged with an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and four criminal summons. Westwood was also accused of misuse of the 911 system and was released on bond.

On top of that, Westwood was fired from her job at Charter Communications. The company released a statement saying:
"The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter's code of conduct and clearly disregards the company's commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior. As such, Ms. Westwood's employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately."
The Garris sisters are planning to take legal actions.
