As Betmudez post last Tuesday, November 20:
So this happened today. I hate to say the political climate is to blame for someone’s outrageous behavior, but I was visibly shaken today with this exchange. I simply asked the woman if I could sit down next to her while I waited for the car to charge.
I noticed she was attentively reading her papers and wanted to be respectful and not interrupt. I asked, “ Would you mind if I sit next to you?” Seems pretty simple. That is when things got crazy!!
Her reply, “Do I have a choice?” ?
I was so shocked, I asked her to repeat it so I could see her face. Something in me said I should record it, too. Thank God I did! What you see next left me speechless…
“You will be wiped out…trust me.” ❌ That was a threat!
Fast forward…she was asked to leave the restaurant. The manager of the store that kicked her out also walked me to my car for safety.
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!!
