A young woman in a Rifle, Colorado grocery store intervened in what appears to be a racist attack on two other young women who were speaking Spanish.
“I’m calling the cops. You leave these women alone! Get out!” Kamira Trent yelled at Linda Dwire inside the City Market grocery store, as The Hill reports.
“You come from a generation that’s destroying this country,” Dwire accused, pointing her finger repeatedly at Trent.
“No I do not. I have respect. You do not harass people,” Trent responded.
“You will lose your country,” Dwire continued. “You know what, you will lose this country.”
“You do not harass Hispanic women!” Trent yelled back.
The video has been video on Facebook nearly 700,000 times since Monday.
Buzzfeed reports Trent followed up on her threat to call police. Dwire was reportedly arrested on two counts of bias-motivated harassment.
The arresting officer, Carlos Cornejo, wrote that when he arrived, he heard Dwire yelling “something to the effect of ‘this is what is wrong with our country’ and ‘they should not be speaking Spanish here.'”
Trent says she overheard Dwire telling the two Spanish-speaking women, “You’re in America. You’re in my country. You can’t speak Spanish here. You need to speak English if you’re going to be in America.”

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
