Warning: this video contains racial slurs.
Bizarre, disturbing video out of Oregon shows a knife-wielding white woman unleashing a racist tirade in a parking lot. Emora Roberson, 20, said she recorded the footage with her cell phone. Roberson’s story was first reported Friday by the Oregonian.
Roberson told the outlet that she was out with her boyfriend Keysuan Goodyear, her aunt, and her 15-month-old daughter at a strip mall parking lot on Christmas Eve for last-minute gift shopping. Their vehicle was next to a pickup truck, which was parked in a handicapped spot although it lacked the requisite sticker.
Roberson claimed that vehicle’s driver picked a fight with them because her aunt “parked crooked.” She said her daughter was asleep, and that the white woman seen in the video “was basically trying to get into our car.” Roberson alleged the attacker slapped and spit her boyfriend. Goodyear said something back, and the woman then pulled out a knife. That’s when Roberson began recording.
“No, it’s called self-defense you stupid n***** bitch,” said the angry, threatening stranger.
“Who the fuck you calling a ‘n*****’?” Roberson shot back.
“You, motherfucker!” the white woman responded, before dangerously shutting an open car door.
“You racist as fuck,” the camerawoman replied.
“She slammed the door on my foot and was acting way outta pocket,” Roberson wrote in a Facebook post of the incident. “Racism is alive and here right where we live. This woman got mad cuz we ‘parked crooked’ and starting callin us n******s, spit on my boyfriend, and slapped him in the face. This racist shit gotta go.”
Roberson said she and her family later drove off because they still had Christmas shopping to take care of.
“I don’t know who made her so mad that day,” Roberson told the Oregonian. “That wasn’t any way to talk to me or talk to someone in front of a child.”
Capt. Rhonda Jaasko with the McMinnville Police Department confirmed to the outlet that they are investigating the incident.
