Last month, a white woman in Oakland called the police on a black family that was having a cookout—then broke down sobbing when another white woman confronted her about her racism on video.

The story came out this week as Michelle Snider posted the video from Oakland’s Lake Merritt, where the woman called police because she believed the family was breaking park rules by cooking.

According to the men targeting, the racist woman told the black men having a BBQ that they were “trespassing” and would be “going to jail.”

The video showed the woman going from aggressive to breaking down sobbing to the police, claiming she was being “harassed.”

On Thursday, a group of people went to the park to protest this type of racism in the best way possible—with a party. A diverse group of people all came out to celebrate and dance. A huge mass of people did the electric slide at one point.

In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.
