A black woman relaxing at Oak Street Beach in Chicago and minding a group of children filmed a white beachgoer’s racist rant when the other woman became irate because the children had “splashed” her.
Raquel Bolton posted video of the encounter to her Facebook page, writing, “Wow the hate is real!”
“I’m going to repost the video please share,” Bolton wrote. “Race has nothing to with ignorance . While at the beach #oakstreetbeach this lady called us the N Word three times in front of my children all because they splashed water on her.”
“N****r!” Massion spits at the camera as the video begins.
“Oh, of course you haven’t graduated and you don’t know the Constitution of the United States and what it says,” said Massion. “It’s called free speech in America. Right to free speech! Look it up!”
Bolton also posted a photo of where Massion was sitting when she was purportedly splashed by the children.
“She is literally sitting at the edge of the water where a bunch of children are playing,” wrote Robyn Pennacchia at the Frisky.
“I’m gonna say, sitting where she was sitting, the odds of her not getting wet were slim to none,” Pannacchia said. “If you don’t want to get splashed, if that is the kind of thing that is going to upset you so deeply that you would actually just launch into a racist tirade, then you should probably move up the beach.”
In 2006, Massion was apparently the center of another racially charged incident in which she attacked police officers and hurled racial epithets at them.
According to the Northwestern University newspaper, police were called to one of the university’s student lounge areas because then-34-year-old Massion was harassing students.
Massion was not authorized to be on the campus and when officers told her she was trespassing, she reportedly shouted racial epithets at them and refused to show any identification.
The Daily Northwestern said, “She continued to yell and curse at the officers. He said officers tried to calm Massion down, but she spit at them.
When the highly agitated Massion attempted to grab an officer by his shirt, she was arrested and handcuffed.
On the way to the police vehicle, Massion managed to strike one officer in the head, knocking off his glasses. She then began to thrash and kick as police attempted to load her into the back seat of the squad car.
A police source said that Massion “refused to have her picture taken, make any phone calls or cooperate in any way with the police officers.”

Trump’s ex-election security official attacks Giuliani for ‘apparent attempt to undermine confidence in the election’
President Donald Trump and his legal crew of misfit attorneys have waged 39 lawsuits to overturn the 2020 election. All but one of them has been laughed out of court. Trump and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, have continued going to court in an attempt to get a legal challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump also fired his cybersecurity czar responsible for securing the election after refusing to corroborate the story that the election was stolen.
In an interview with "60 Minutes," Chris Krebs, former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, explained that Giuliani and Trump are apparently attempting "to undermine confidence in the election, to confuse people, to scare people.”
‘Failed incumbent’ Trump is being ignored now that his ‘mystique is gone’: Ex-GOPer Dave Jolly
Former Republican Rep. David Jolly explained that there are two problems outgoing President Donald Trump is facing: First, he is resting comfortably in his own house of denial, but second, his advisers aren't doing their jobs in walking him through his lack of options to steal the 2020 election.
"None of those advisers will actually go to work for Donald Trump," said Jolly. "Consider just among the legal community the number of reputable lawmakers that said we won't have a meritless claim because their reputation is on the line as well."
He recalled all of the times Trump bragged that he would hire "all the best people" for the White House and cabinet.
‘Pathetic’ Trump ridiculed by MSNBC guest for latest attention-grabbing stunts: ‘He’s the Republicans’ problem’ now
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" with host Maria Teresa Kumar, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin ridiculed Donald Trump for whining about his election loss and making plans to disrupt President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration in January, saying the president can't stand not being the center of attention.
Asked about the president wanting to possibly hold a rally on Biden's swearing-in day, Rubin labeled the president as "pathetic."
"I think it's somewhat ridiculous and it's also a good test for the media, frankly," Rubin responded. "There is absolutely no bigger story than the inauguration of Joe Biden and no one should cover Trump's [ inaudible]. This is pathetic -- jumping up and down, 'me, me, me.'"
