This came out of NOWHERE.
After a Wal-Mart employee steps in and hints that he might ask the racist woman to leave, the woman storms off after a few more moments of conflict. Luckily, Hicks got the entire ordeal on video, and the woman’s tirade has been going viral.
A Public Reaction
Hicks took to Facebook to express exactly what she felt about the incident. An American citizen, who was born and raised in Mexico City, Hicks proclaimed that she is proud of her heritage and proud to be an American.
She shared these heartwarming and compassionate sentiments: “Although the events of this past week have been hard on myself and my family, here is what really stands out: the love I have been shown by people in that store, in my community, in my country, and in the world. I have received tens of thousands of encouraging messages; too many to count.
“I have had community members I don’t even know reach out to me and show me love.
I had a bad experience with one person, and have received blessings from tens of thousands.”
She posted her response in both English and Spanish.
A Sign of The Times
Although people are constantly making steps toward equality, this video shows that there are still people who believe that being American means being white and speaking only English.
