Some people are determined to see racism in anything and everything. A psychotic woman in a Target parking lot is the perfect example.
A black woman was walking through the parking lot with her son, who bumped into a man’s car and dinged it. No big deal — it’s just an accident, right? So the man asked her for her insurance information so the repair would be covered. And she completely lost her mind, screaming about racism and verbally assaulting the man and his wife in front of several children.
Perhaps the worst part of this video is how the woman repeatedly made sure to use this as an opportunity to indoctrinate her son with her toxic, racist mindset. She repeatedly yells at him, “You see how they are??”, as if the incident drives home the point that black people are all victims of evil white racists. But this was just an accident, nothing more. Those poor children did nothing wrong, and she turned it into a huge issue of race.
What’s sad is that her son tried to speak up and admit that he did hit the car, but she was completely unwilling to take any responsibility. Instead, she’s teaching him to avoid accountability. She was being blatantly racist, and even after she tried to act as if she had done nothing wrong, she hit the car with her hand multiple times, hit the man filming, and threw things at her son. The entire situation is not just infuriating, it’s sad.
No child is born racist — they’re raised that way. And here was a sweet little boy who just had an accident. He didn’t do anything wrong. It didn’t have to be a complicated issue of white people keeping black people down. But being raised in this environment will surely teach this boy to see racism everywhere, just as his mother does. That’s the truly tragic thing.
