A white Pennsylvania woman is being evicted after a video showed her slamming a door in a black child’s face and calling him a racial slur — all while he was trying to hold the door open for her.
Pittsburgh’s WPXI confirmed this week that the older white woman, identified only by her first name Susie, “has been served an eviction notice in direct connection to this incident.”
In a video recorded by his father, Rev. GL Riley, nine-year-old Brian Thomas-Riley is seen holding the door for Susie before she slammed it in his face, causing him to jump backwards. According to the boy’s father, the woman proceeded to call him a slur.
“He pushed the door a third of the way open and you heard, ‘get away you little [slur] boy,’” Riley told WPXI. The father said the woman proceeded to call him a slur as well.
“This was just cold and blatant,” Riley said. “It’s injustice. Period. And people need to be accountable for their action.”
The building’s management told WPXI that Susie “has a history of verbal abuse,” but the confrontation with the child turning physical was “the last straw.”

Ancient monkey skull reveals secrets of primate brain evolution
The remains of a prehistoric primate that lived high in the Andes 20 million years ago and was so small it could fit in your hand is helping scientists learn more about how human brains evolved.
In a study published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, researchers in China and the US used high resolution imaging to examine the only known fossilized skull of the extinct Chilecebus, a New World monkey that scampered around ancient mountain forests, feeding on leaves and fruit.
One key finding: the brain size of primates, long assumed to have increased progressively over time, now appears to have followed a more roundabout path.
