A white woman confirmed that she called the husband of a black woman the N-word at a Walmart parking lot in La Plata, Maryland on Nov. 12.
Dawn Lennon filmed as she asked the Potomac Landing Elementary School employee, “Did you just call my husband the N-word?”
The woman confirmed she did, and threatened Lennon with imprisonment.
Lennon recalled the incident on Facebook:
So while leaving the Walmart parking lot my husband was called The N Word, because he didn’t move out the parking spot the way she wanted him to. I saw where she was parking her vehicle and confronted her. How dare she talk to my husband that way and in front of me and my children.
The thing I thought was so profound is that she was proud of it and didn’t try to deny it. My house was burned down in 2004 by racist and now this!!! I’m so ashamed to live in a country that supports this type of hatred and bigotry.
Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesperson told WJLA that they are investigating the incident and working to “address parent & community concerns.”
The employee will not be on school grounds during the investigation.
The employee refused to comment to WJLA.
