Latina shoppers harassed by ignorant piece of work (caught on tape)

Happened in Louisville on Tuesday evening. Absolutely disgusting. The J.C. Penney store is attempting to identify the shoppers who were targeted to reverse the charges on their purchases. That's a nice twist, at least.

2. Ugh, now I know why I don't live in KY

Sure, she's a bigoted POS. The real problem is the crowd standing around looking at their shoes instead of telling her she's out of line and to STFU before she makes an even bigger arse of herself.

There have been a handful of similar incidents here. Since we're all minorities in NM, other people have spoken up against the bigot.

That needs to be contagious, people. Yes, some of us might get hurt if they explode. However, they can't be permitted to think they're the majority. They're not.

3. I suspect most of the people on line who don't agree with her prefer not to escalate...

the situation.

One loud, rude woman is bad enough, but a riot would be a real problem.

5. Telling her to knock it off wouldn't start a riot

especially if someone busted her for having her kids bring things she forgot to the supermarket checkout once in a while. You know she's done it, anyone with a handy kid has done it.

At least the mall and that specific store have both banned her from now on.

6. Maybe, maybe not-- I have no idea what the rest of the line was like...

maybe a lot of it agreed with her.

I've been in those situations, as have many here-- sometimes it's best just to let it pass. Sometimes it's not.

7. My wife and I have been in that sort of situation a couple of times

In both instances we chose to approach the individual(s) being accosted and reassured them: "You are welcome here. You have the same rights as the rest of us, and we're sorry you have to put up with this sort of behavior."

The first time the loudmouth had already walked away. The second time the airhead was engaged with another bystander, who hopefully was giving him some counterpoints to consider, but there often is no winning with such bigots.

8. No, the best you can do is shame them into shutting up

which is why it's so troubling when bystanders refuse to, allowing the loudmouthed bigot to think s/he represents the majority.

Sorry, I won't let this stuff pass. If I think the bigot is likely tp become violent, I'll comfort the target as you did. But this shit can't go unanswered.

4. What a disgusting POS!

Good for JC Penney to try and find the shoppers to return their money; that gesture shows some caring. It's really sad and discouraging that no one spoke up to put her in her place.
