An unidentified woman was filmed hurling racist threats at some black teens inside a Denny’s restaurant on Nov. 26 in St. George, Utah.
One of the teen filmed the woman as she called them “f*cking n*ggers,” and added: “All it takes is a couple of n*ggers to cause problems. This is America — I can say whatever the f*ck I want.”
Jordan Jones, one of the teens, told The Spectrum & Daily News that he and his friends were sitting a few booths away from the woman, who approached them for no reason:
We don’t know what provoked her or why she thought we were laughing at her. We never spoke to her or even looked at her directly.
I’ve never experienced that in my life. I’ve never experienced something like that in public, and for no one to even step in.
Jones said that Denny’s management (bystanders and others) didn’t do anything to fix the situation, and actually made it worse:
They could have done number of things. The employee said the manager thought it was funny.
I’m very concerned about it. I don’t know how to explain it.
It makes me feel like I can’t go into a restaurant and eat and feel OK without being assaulted because someone doesn’t like my race or that their race is superior to mine. What next? She already threatened my life.
