A racist rant by a white woman at a grocery store was caught on video. In it, she’s seen telling a Puerto Rican woman that she should “be deported” and go back to her “own country.”
Johanny Santana was shopping in Abington Township, located in Montgomery County, Penn., during the incident, as reported by NBC 10 Philadelphia. According to a video she posted on Facebook, Santana was at check-out at the store, in process of paying and leaving when the woman behind her in line began a tirade.
The video shows that she was unhappy with the fact that Santana was speaking Spanish, which is when the fall-out began.
When the Puerto Rican woman asked if she had a problem, the other woman responded with “Can you stop talking to me?”
The rant continued, and the video shows both women getting more and more heated. “I was born here, you don’t belong here,” the woman told Santana. “Go back to your own country — we’re not your fu***ing piggyback.”
The video shows her telling Santana how she “should be deported” because she “came here illegally.” She added that she hopes that Trump deports her.
Santana did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment, but she told NBC 10 that she replied to the woman with insults of her own — which she isn’t proud of, in retrospect.“I regret it because I didn’t want to tell her that,” she told the Philadelphia channel. “I felt powerless because I didn’t speak English well enough to be able to properly respond to her.”
As Santana completed her transaction, the other woman held out what appears to be $5 bills and said: “I pay legal money, not drug money.” The identity of the white woman in the video has not been revealed.
