A knife-wielding white woman yelled the N-word at a black family in McMinnville, Oregon in a parking lot on Christmas Eve, according to a young mom, Emora Roberson, who filmed the woman.
Roberson told The Oregonian that her boyfriend, her aunt and her 15-month-old daughter stopped at a strip mall to pick up a last-minute gift when a pickup truck driver began hurling racist slurs at the family because the family had “parked crooked”:
My daughter was fast asleep, and this woman was basically trying to get into our car. Her truck didn’t have a handicapped sticker.Roberson said the woman slapped and spit on her boyfriend, Keysuan Goodyear, who warned the woman about her behavior and language. The woman responded by whipping out a knife. That’s when Roberson said she started filming her:
We eventually drove off. We still had Christmas shopping to do. My daughter woke up and was crying her head off.
I don’t know who made her so mad that day. That wasn’t any way to talk to me or talk to someone in front of a child.Capt. Rhonda Jaasko told The Oregonian that the case is under investigation.
