On Monday, a woman’s racist meltdown at a cab driver was caught on video and now is going viral.
The Sun said Wednesday that the driver — who lives and works in the East Midland city of Leicester — filmed the woman’s lunchtime tantrum, in which she told the man and a passerby they should stay with their “own f*cking breed.”
The angry woman repeatedly called the driver a “dirty ni**er” and said, “You are lucky you’re in our country.”
“Why is that, then?” the driver asked.
“Because you shouldn’t be in here why aren’t you in your own… with your own f*cking breed?” she demanded, slurring.
A passerby become involved and the woman became extremely agitated, hurling epithets and racist slurs. She has not been identified but Leicester police are investigating the incident.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggests four more years of Trump might be better for Democratic Party
As Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared headed for a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pondered whether President Donald Trump's re-election might be better for the Democratic establishment than the Vermont senator's multiracial, multigenerational movement taking over the party.
"I'm wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?" said Matthews. "Maybe that's too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they'd rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like."

Donald Trump’s cruelty and vulgarity have done enormous damage — but let’s stop pretending he’s ‘un-American’
Here is a good, truth-in-advertising political slogan: "How much money will it bring in?" That is also the question that Alexis de Tocqueville argued Americans use to ascertain the "value of everything in this world."
The almighty profit motive reins so steadfastly supreme in the world's wealthiest nation that children suffer brain damage from drinking water contaminated with high levels of lead, prison has become the leading institution for the mentally ill, and hundreds of thousands of Americans declare bankruptcy every year because they can't afford to pay their medical bills. Caring for the sick and nurturing children cannot compete with the twin gods of enrichment and consumption in what historian Walter McDougall called "a nation of hustlers." In the words of President Calvin Coolidge, "The business of America is business."
