A dollar store customer caught on video in a racist tirade now claims that she is the real victim, WSB-TV in Atlanta reports.
On Thursday, WSB-TV reporter Audrey Washington investigated the incident, that went viral after the video was posted online.
"Talking to somebody like this is never OK," Alise Fowler, the Dollar Tree store employee, told WSB-TV. "Being evil, is never OK."
“She called me a black b*tch. A black whore,” Fowler noted.
The WSB reporter was contacted by Pamela Sharma, who identified herself as the woman in the video ranting at the black employees.

“I wasn’t racist initially and I wasn’t racist in the middle, it’s not until I became the victim of racism,” Sharma claimed.
Her defense is that as a "highly educated" former high school teacher, it is impossible for her to be racist.
“So, I have taught at black schools, I’ve taught at Latino schools,” Sharma said. “Individuals who go to be an educator are not racist.”
