Haley Perea, a student at California Baptist University, is seen
hurling her drink on the two men and saying: “Excuse me, this is for the
national anthem you pieces of shit.”
Her classmate Savannah Sugg
recorded the clip and uploaded it to Twitter the caption: “‘Take a kneel
for the land of the slaves.’ Disrespect our flag and our country and
that’s how we’ll react.”
Since they posted their video, it has also emerged that Perea has repeatedly tweeted the n-word:
There are a lot of people online currently calling for CBU to respond to what Perea and Sugg did, with some comparing to it discrimination from the Jim Crow era.
It’s getting worse and worse by the week.
These people actually took video of what they did and proudly uploaded it to Twitter. They think people peacefully protesting should be confronted with violence… These two gotta be charged with assault.
I wonder how blind people are when they try to claim we don’t have racism in America.
American history is largely one of armed white men using organized, state-sanctioned, domestic terrorism that targeted Native Americans, Black people, and other non-white Americans. Calling any non-white race inherently violent is a gross act of projection, erasure, and an attempt to whitewash history.
