An incident that took place this Saturday at a Kroger in Detroit was captured on video by a black woman who says she was confronted by a white woman who blocked her car, refusing to allow her to leave, Fox2 reports.

According to Shaneeka Montgomery-Strickland, she was trying to leave the store parking lot when the woman stood behind her car.

“This needs to be known. You can’t just stay hush hush about everything and keep on letting people get away with nonsense,” she said, adding that the confrontation started when her son tried to grab a bottle of Gatorade from off the store shelf.

“She said, ‘Oh my god, they went up to get they Gatorade and I’m trying to shop here.’ It was irateness,” she told Fox2. “I told her please don’t yell at them and then she started yelling at me. And I said, ‘You don’t have to yell at me, they got the Gatorade.’ And a lot of people where, if you’re short you’re going to go up there and grab what you need. There’s not a lot of workers in the aisle, you have to do what you have to do and you move on.”

The woman continued to harass Montgomery-Strickland as they went out to the parking lot.

“She still went to her car, came back with the baby in the cart, called me the b word, then she stood behind my car because I started videotaping after that,” she said.

The woman ultimately called the police on Montgomery-Strickland.

Crooks and Deger-Sen are now urging the Senate not to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett or any nominee until after the presidential election. "Rushing through a confirmation with an election underway threatens the very legitimacy of the court," they wrote in a joint op-ed for The New York Times Sunday.

Black voters who sat out 2016 are ready to boot ‘ignorant’ Donald Trump ‘come hell or high water’: report

In 2016, “I didn’t like either of the candidates," said Jason Hooper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Turns out, Hooper wasn't the only one with this perspective. According to Pew Research, Black voter turnout declined in 2016 for the first time in 20 years, down from 66.2 percent to 59.6 percent. Things are different this year, though. Washington Post-ABC News national polls conducted late last month and early this month found Biden leading Trump among African American likely voters, 92 percent to 8 percent. So if Black voters who stayed home four years ago turn out this year, Biden could swing back the states that Trump narrowly won against Hillary Clinton, no matter what happens with the White vote.

While Republican Senate seats in Maine, Colorado, North Carolina and Arizona already appear to be lost causes for the GOP leadership, Politico's James Arkin reported that more GOP senators are finding themselves "scrambling" in more states than the party had planned for.
