A white woman at a local restaurant was caught on camera using a racial slur against a black diner because she found her to be talking too loudly.
Mobile phone footage shows a woman called Nancy Goodman approaching the other customers including Lakesha Shaw and Chanda Stewart at a Bonefish Grill in North Hills, North Carolina to tell them to be quiet, before calling one of them a ‘stupid n*****’ in a shocking racial slur.
The footage has since generated thousands of shares and comments online.
Lakesha Shaw was the woman who Goodman had addressed the offensive word to, while her friend Chanda Stewart filmed the tirade on her mobile.
‘We’re paying for our food just like everyone else, and she told us that we are the rudest people,’ Stewart can be heard saying in the video.
Goodman confronts the women, saying: ‘I’ve got real good friends who are black, and I love them.’
‘We never said anything about colour,’ Stewart responds.
Goodman proceeds to tell the women they are being too loud, at which point Shaw responds: ‘In your opinion. Let me show you my money. It’s just as green as yours.’
‘Why are you so stupid ‘n******?’ Goodman says to Shaw as she leaves their table.
‘Do you call your black friends [that]?’ the women question her.
Goodman shakes her head, saying: ‘They’re not like you.’
Goodman has since refused to apologise for the racist remark, adding she would do it again.
Goodman, 71, put her actions down to her ‘tremendous anxiety’ and said the group’s behavior had pushed her to breaking point.
