An unidentified Missouri man posted, then took down, video of himself spewing insults and racial slurs while driving past a group of Black residents in Ferguson, Crooks and Liars reported.
“If it was a white person, nobody would care,” the man can be heard saying while passing a local convenience store that was vandalized during the two nights of demonstrations and looting following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. “F*ck y’all.”
The video was originally posted on Tuesday by a user calling himself “Brandon,” who described it by calling the motorist a “Crazy white guy driving a 2014 yellow Camaro. He was filming and dropped his camera so I wanted to post this to the world.” It was later taken down but resurfaced after being posted by another user.
“Look at all this trash,” the man can be heard saying while passing by a man sweeping up the store parking lot while wearing what appears to be a fraternity shirt. “And you call yourselves educated. That’s why you’re in north county.”
As the car makes its way through the parking lot, an unidentified woman yells at the man to leave the area, to which he responds, “Go back to Africa. If it was a white person, nobody would give a f*ck. Look at that n*gger.”
The car then leaves the parking lot and makes its way back into regular traffic as the man continues berating the demonstrators.
The video follows sporadic reports of racist language being hurled at protesters in the wake of the fatal shooting of Brown by a local police officer. Reuters reported that authorities backed out of their plan to reveal the identity of the officer who shot Brown, citing fears of retaliation.
Watch the video, as posted online on Tuesday, below.
GOP lawmaker cut the mic on black woman’s facts — but let white men spew ‘lunacy and lies’: report
The Republican chair of a Tennessee legislative committee is under fire for cutting off the microphone while a woman of color was speaking -- but allowing white men to spew "lunacy."
"It took all of five minutes for Sen. Mike Bell, chairman of the Tennessee General Assembly’s Judiciary Committee, to prove Cherisse Scott’s point. Scott is founder and CEO of Sister Reach, a Memphis organization that fights for reproductive freedom and health for rural women and girls of color struggling with poverty," Memphis Commercial Appeal columnist Tonyaa Weathersbee explained.
‘Not true at all’: CNN’s fact-checker says even the professor Trump cited on Google election fraud says president is lying
On Monday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," fact-checker Daniel Dale told host Chris Cuomo that not only is President Donald Trump's claim that Google threw over 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton a lie, the professor he's citing, Robert Epstein, has repudiated Trump's interpretation of it.
"It's not true at all," said Dale. "I spoke to the author of this study ... There are various questions about the quality of the study, but even the study's author says that the president didn't describe the study correctly. What the study's author says is he has no evidence that anything was manipulated, search results or votes themselves. What he says, and this is disputed, is that Google's search results showed bias during the 2016 election."
Maddow warns of Donald Trump causing massive gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia outbreak
The host of MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" warned of the Trump administration causing a widespread outbreak of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).
"But here’s a story that just broke this afternoon that I think is likely to have pretty profound consequences all over the country. And one of the reasons we know that -- or at least we have reason to suspect that -- is because we’ve already seen a few little case studies about how exactly this is going to go wrong, because there are a few states that sort of beat the rest of the country to the punchline on this one," Maddow explained.
