This came out of NOWHERE.
Sometimes, you can know someone for several years without knowing that they harbor some seriously messed up and racist viewpoints. Other times, people show their true colors after seconds of meeting them.
That’s what happened to Eva Hicks, who was minding her own business at Walmart last week when she experienced intense, unprovoked racism firsthand. Whatever set this woman off that day, she sure didn’t hold anything back.
Check out the video of the incident.
Any Other Day
Eva Hicks did nothing to provoke the woman other than saying two completely harmless words: “Excuse me.” Whether it was the color of her skin or the way she spoke, it set off a fellow shopper in a pretty intense way. The woman didn’t need to hear one more word from Hicks before going off on a racist tirade.
“Go back to Mexico”
Despite Hicks fighting back, although she was clearly flustered by this woman’s reaction, the woman continued on her tirade, telling Hicks to “Go back to Mexico” and that “this is America.”
When another woman steps in to defend Hicks and calls the woman “ignorant,” the racist woman says, “A n***** is calling me ignorant?” … leaving no question of how racist she truly is.
The Shocking Footage
The most alarming part about this footage is the fact that the woman shows absolutely no remorse for her words or for her actions.
Hicks stands her ground, despite the woman saying pretty much everything racist in the book, including, “We don’t want you here.” She continues to mock Hicks even when she starts to cry.
