A Las Vegas woman is feeling apologetic after she was caught on camera going on a racist rant against her neighbor, who happens to be of Filipino descent.
Per local news station KTNV, Las Vegas resident Dexter Manawat caused a stir over the holidays when he posted a video of his neighbor hurling racial epithets at him while she was raking leaves on New Year’s Eve.
“Orange motherf*cker!” she shouted at him. “Go back to where you came from!”
Manawat then asked her where, exactly, she thought he came from.
“From some piece of sh*t, Manila-ass, f*cking ghetto living under a tarp piece of sh*t land,” she yelled. “You’re just like one f*cking generation out of the jungle, like f*cking loin-cloth wearers!”
She also informed Manawat that she believed Filipinos were all a bunch of “orange savages.”
In an interview with KTNV, the woman apologized for her racist tirade but insisted she isn’t really a racist.
“I stooped to the lowest possible denominator to hurt someone because I was angry,” she said. “I wasn’t raised that way.”
Manawat, for his part, accepted her apology, although he was still a bit stunned by the ferocity of his neighbor’s attacks.
“I’ve never been called orange,” he tells KTNV. “That was a first.”

Critics of sweeping policy changes always make one huge mistake: Robert Reich
In last Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg charged that Senator Bernie Sanders’ policy proposals would cost $50 trillion. Holy Indiana.
Larry Summers, formerly chief White House economic advisor for Barack Obama, puts the price tag at $60 trillion. “We are in a kind of new era of radical proposal,” he told CNN.
Bernie Sanders campaign accepts apology from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews: ‘We got to get past it’
MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews on Monday apologized to the Bernie Sanders campaign after comparing his dominance in the first three states of the 2020 presidential nomination to the fall of France to the Nazis in World War II.
Sanders senior advisor Chuck Rocha was asked on Fox News for response.
"Look, we all get hot and say things in the moment, I'm glad Chris apologized," Rocha said. "We got to move on and get past it, I'm glad he said what he had to say, I'm tired of folks on Twitter fighting with each other, it's time to win this election."
‘Breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy’ of the GOP may win Trump reelection: Nobel economist
Donald Trump was blasted for his economic policies by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman -- who worries it just might work to get the president reelected.
"It may have slipped by you, but last week Donald Trump suggested that he may be about to give U.S. farmers — who have yet to see any benefits from his much-touted trade deal with China — another round of government aid," Krugman wrote in The New York Times. "This would be on top of the billions in farm aid that Trump has already delivered, costing taxpayers several times as much as Barack Obama’s auto bailout — a bailout Republicans fiercely denounced as 'welfare' and 'crony capitalism' at the time."
