Shocking video shows a white woman verbally attacking two Hispanic women who were speaking Spanish to one another.
It all went down at a Colorado supermarket, and what’s different about this story is that a bystander actually jumped into action and defended the two women. That woman has been identified as Kamira Trent, and she jumped in when Linda Dwire, the white woman, was arguing with the two Hispanic women.
“I’m calling the cops. You leave these women alone! Get out!” Trent yells at Dwire.
“You come from a generation that’s destroying this country,” Dwire fires back. "No I do not. I have respect. You do not harass people," Trent responds.

Thank you to the young lady who took out this trash.
Dwire then points a finger at Trent and says, "You will lose your country. You know what, you will lose this country." That’s when Trent reveals her figurative cape and escorts the racist woman out of the store. "You do not harass Hispanic women!" she says.
Trent later reportedly called the police and Dwire was arrested and taken to Garfield County Jail and was charged with two counts of bias-motivated harassment. She was released on bond and will be due back in court next month.
According to BuzzFeed News, Dwire overheard Fabiola Velasquez and Isabel Marin, the two women from Mexico, speaking Spanish. Dwire then interrupted and asked them if they liked living in the United States, and when they confirmed they did, she told them to learn English and became loud and irate.

It's great to see someone step in for a change. Maybe this can be a lesson for others: if you see something wrong, step in.
