A North Carolina man’s racist rant was caught on camera after he allegedly tried to side-swipe a black woman whom he believed had cut him off.
Local news station WCNC reports that Charlotte resident Tiffany Sterling got into a confrontation with a driver whom she says aggressively tried to drive his vehicle into her car.
“He crossed over two lanes and almost hit me so I just honked my horn and he just went crazy,” Sterling told WCNC. “I was like, ‘Is this man trying to kill me right now? What is going on?’ I was just shaking out of shock and disbelief and confusion.”
When the two of them found themselves stopped side-by-side at a red light, Sterling took out her phone and started taking video of the man, who had opened up his car door and started yelling racial slurs at her. When the man saw her using her phone to take video, he grew even more enraged.
“Take my picture, b*tch, I don’t care!” he yelled. “I had the green light… little n*gger c*nt.”
Local police said that, while Sterling was not at fault for the road rage incident, she nevertheless should have tried to avoid antagonizing the driver further.
“I could’ve not entertained it at all,” Sterling admitted. “I could not have even listened to what he had to say. It could’ve turned into an unsafe situation looking back, for sure.”

WATCH: Trump flees Bedminster press conference after reporter busts him for lying about veterans
President Donald Trump held his second hastily arranged press conference in two days at his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey on Saturday.
Trump began the press conference by falsely claiming credit for the Veterans Choice bill that was signed by President Barack Obama.
CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale has recorded Trump lying about the bill more than 140 times.
But this time, CBS News reporter Paula Reid challenged Trump on his lies.
Trump’s refusal to bail out cash-strapped cities will blow up in his face at election time: economist
On CNN Saturday, University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers said he was "baffled" by President Donald Trump's flat refusal to allow coronavirus stimulus to go to city governments, ostensibly because they are being mismanaged by Democrats and don't deserve more money.
"I took calls from journalists throughout the last two or three years saying, what is it Trump is going to do in late 2020 to artificially goose the economy to get re-elected? And people were thinking of all sorts of ideas," said Wolfers. "The Democratic Congress has sent him a $3 trillion bill and he's refused to sign it."
GOP strategist shut down by CNN’s Blackwell for fear-mongering about deficits after Republicans handed out tax cuts to the rich
On CNN Saturday, Republican strategist Brian Robinson tried to claim the Democratic coronavirus stimulus proposal was a nonstarter because of deficit spending — and was immediately smacked down by anchor Victor Blackwell, who reminded him his party forced through a 12-figure unpaid-for tax cut for corporations and billionaires in 2017 over Democratic objections.
"$3.4 trillion dollars is where [Democrats] started. That's not a place we can start," said Robinson. "We have to fix our short-term problems. We've got to help people in need. We've got to help people not be evicted from their homes. Those are all important. But, it's not the only consideration. We already added $3 trillion to our national debt in the last few months. That's never happened in our nation's history. There is a limit to how much we can do. Republicans aren't pinching pennies, they're trying to use common sense."
