- A Filipino family in California encountered a racist American woman
- The elderly woman told them to go back to the Philippines
- The incident took place in a supermarket
An elderly American woman was caught on video berating a Filipino family at a supermarket.
KAMI learned that the incident took place at the Lucky Supermarkets in California.
“Ugh: A #FilipinoAmerican family was told to ‘go back to your country,’ this time at Lucky Supermarkets in #DalyCity, CA.
“A woman begins harassing the family (including their 5 year old) in the checkout line. It's amazing she feels entitled to spew racial hatred directly, loudly and publicly. We know this happens all the time, across America, but let's spread this to increase awareness,” Stumble & Rise wrote on Facebook.
The old lady was caught on video also saying: “Look at all the groceries they buy. They steal our food, they steal our money, our jobs… Go back to your country!”
Here is the video of the unfortunate incident:
Netizens were outraged by what the woman did to the Pinoy family:
“It’s sad that old as she is, she lived her life being a short minded individual.”
“That old and racist woman hopefully will not end up in a care home or convalescent hospital where many Filipinos are employed as caregivers, LPNs, LVNs, and nurses.”
“And you took all that? Stand up and confront anyone who bullies you because of your race...”
KAMI believes that we should all love and respect each other despite our differences in race, religion, beliefs and culture.
In the run-up to the Philippines Independence Day, we decided to go out into the streets and ask passers-by a simple but, at the same time, a tricky question: "How many colors does the Philippine flag have"? – on KAMI HumanMeter YouTube channel!
