Racism Is Still Alive And Well, Even Here In Western New York — UPDATED WITH RESPONSE! [NSFW VIDEO]
UPDATE (June 5, 8:30 a.m.): Narvell Benning, the man behind the camera in this video, called in to Brian's World last night. You can hear his whole conversation with Brian by clicking the button below. "I'm just glad that my boys wasn't in the car with me, to experience that," he said.
UPDATE (June 4, 10:30 a.m.): Earlier this morning, the woman in this video, who goes by Janelle Ambrosia on Facebook, reached out to WBLK saying that it doesn't show the whole story -- namely, her side of it. She was originally unwilling to let us update this post with her account of the incident; however, now she has given us her side of the story. You can listen to Todd Anderson's audio interview with her by playing the video below. Again, some of the language is NSFW!
She tells us that she is NOT a racist. "I am not a racist. I have a black cousin, "she told us. "He just pissed me off. I'm bipolar."
ORIGINAL STORY: I'm going to be honest. I don't even know what the major issue is in this video: Is it the fact that she disrespects this man in front of her children?
The fact that she thinks it's OK, because she strips for police officers? The fact that she threatens to throw hot coffee all over him? Or a multitude of other things I could bring up?
Nonetheless, this is a video you'll want to watch. A woman outside of a Dollar General decides to call a man in a truck a couple different kinds of terrible words -- and it all happened right here in Cheektowaga!!
I just think it needed to be shown a little closer to home. You'd be surprised how many people I bump into on a daily basis who won't admit that racism exists. And how many tell me that it's not a big deal, and I shouldn't bring any attention to it. Right.
WARNING: The language in this video is extremely NSFW!
