It seems like every day now we are exposed to yet another ugly display of the racial divide that still permeates American society more than a hundred and fifty years after the abolition of slavery.
While it seems to be a new phenomena, it may simply be the cyclical boiling over of a latent characteristic of our society, much like what followed in the wake of the early 1990s after the Rodney King and OJ Simpson trials, or the profound but difficult transformation of American society during the Civil Rights era.
But as this disturbing video shows, there is much work left to do to mend the fences and rebuild a national unity. In this bizarre rant, a Tallahassee Florida woman confronts a group of African Americans and the bigotry flows profusely.
It is unclear from the actual footage what the cause of the encounter was, but what ensues is disturbing to watch no matter which side you take.
There is definite body shaming on the part of both participants, but the racially biased statements of the white woman seem at points to even defy logic.
One of the persons outside of range of the camera makes a comment about her body to which she replies, “Crack is black!”
She continues to move further down the rabbit hole with “You should have stayed in Africa, and you can go back there. It’s free. You can go back to Africa if you want to.”
