Video Of White Lady Verbally Attacking Hispanic Women Until Another White Woman Shuts Her Down

BRISTOL, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 06:  In this photo illustration, a basket of goods is seen in a supermarket on February 6, 2018 in Bristol, England. The Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, has called for the UK Government to drop the Retail Price Index as a measure of inflation which is used to set rail fares, student loan repayments and government contracts worth billions of pounds, because it has known errors. According to the Office of National Statistics the RPI has a number of calculation errors and has consistently overestimated inflation meaning many costs set by the RPI have risen too high, whilst beneficiaries of government bonds have had larger than expected returns, funded by the taxpayer. Because RPI is typically higher than the Bank's preferredmeasure of inflation, the Consumer Prices Index, many experts believe it paints an unrealistic picture of the cost of living and both the government and businesses have developed a habit of choosing which ever inflation measures that best suit their interests.

Video Of White Lady Verbally Attacking Hispanic Women Until Another White Woman Shuts Her Down

"That is the right way to be an ally," someone commented.

Shocking video shows a white woman verbally attacking two Hispanic women who were speaking Spanish to one another.

  1.  

    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.

     

  2.  

    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.

     

  3. One of the Hispanic women later uploaded the clip to Facebook and described the whole situation, including the quote, “I never thought this would happen to me.”

    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.

  4. Social media applauded Kamira Trent for her heroics
  5. 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.
