White Couple Goes Home Shirtless After They Tried To Come For Latinos By Calling Them ‘Beaners’ During Road Rage Incident

We’ve all experienced road rage at least once in our lifetime. If you commute every day, then it’s probably more of a daily occurrence. The way you choose to deal with the road rage could result in damage to your mental state, to your car, or the other driver. We’ve seen countless of stories in which a simple case of road rage can turn deadly, or plain ugly.

A white couple pulled over to confront a Latino couple in a terrible case of road rage where things escalated quickly.

We’re not sure what transpired before the passengers in the video began recording. What is clear is that the white couple pulled ahead of them (on the freeway), stopped the car and began to come at the Latino family aggressively.

You can hear the passengers calling the police way before the white couple even steps out of the car.

The white woman approached the Latino family and it seemed things only got worse after the white lady referred to them as “beaners.”

That is when all hell broke loose. It’s as if the white couple had no idea that this Latino couple would retaliate against them, and did they ever.

The white couple backed off only after the Latino couple went after them physically after calling them beaners.

This is a new fighting tactic we have never seen, at least when it comes to road rage. The Latino couple was not going to let the other family get away without a proper fight.

Here’s how people on social media reacted to the instance of racism that led to this point.

So it’s officially true: women have the first and last word, always.

The white couple sure had a loud bark but not much of a bite.

The fear was clear once they got close enough to see who was in the car. Before that, it was clear that the first couple to get out of the car was ready to throw down.

Whoever was recording could be the next Martin Scorsese.

The 911 operator was trying his best to find out what was going on but it is hard to understand the person giving directions.

When you get pushed to the edge so often, you will break at some point.

At least they have a recording that proves the other couple started it.

In the end, people on social media are siding with the Latino family caught up in the road rage incident.

Violence is never the answer but it is important to be ready to defend yourself. Honestly. this father was ready to defend his family.

A lot of people saw the whole situation as a no-win situation given the current state of our government and distrust in police.

That is why we have to keep recording at all times.

Here’s the entire video below.

What would you have done in this situation?

Disturbing Video Shows Workers Feeding White Kids First At A Georgia Daycare

Schools and daycares are supposed to be safe spaces for kids to be able to learn and to express themselves. However, we know that isn’t always the case. For years, children have had to fear gun violence on campus, bullying, and sexual assaults.

A recent video that’s gone viral shows that even younger kids aren’t safe from trauma, as a daycare in Georgia is being accused of blatant racism against its Black kids.

Young kids are experiencing hate and racism even at places meant to be safe for them.

The Kids ‘R’ Kids daycare center in Roswell, on the outskirts of Atlanta, has been accused of racism after a father checked in to the live feed at lunch time to see how his two-year-old son was doing and noticed that the white children were all fed first while the Black children were made to wait.

Adryan McCauley told CBS46: “They were skipping all of the Black kids it seemed like. All the white kids got their lunch, and all the Black kids had to wait. From the videos and pictures that we saw today, we are just completely disturbed.”

McCauley took a screenshot which he posted to Instagram, but the full video has not been released. He added that the boy’s mother asked the nursery what had happened and was reportedly told by the director: “I’m not really sure because I’m not in the classroom, maybe it’s a dietary thing.”

One of the families was sure to share what happened with the public.

According to the Daily Mail, the family of the 2-year-old posted the screenshot to Instagram, where it went viral.

“This is truly unbelievable. You better know this won’t be the last time you hear from me on this,” user @marquis_dagreat wrote, along with the screenshot. “Why does every white kid have their food? Not one black child has food in front of them! Thank God for cameras in classrooms because there is no way to hide this racism!”

“In the year 2021 this is truly unbelievable. As blacks we always strive to send our kids to schools in Suburban area’s [sic], but I’m telling you first hand that is not always best,” they continued. “This is not a black or white issue this is simply wrong!”

The brand behind the daycare has cut ties with the Georgia location.

The corporate office responded on Thursday by calling the screenshot “disturbing” and cutting ties with the location in question. 

“Our company has decided to terminate that franchisee’s Kids ‘R’ Kids contract and branding, effective immediately, leaving them to operate independently,” President and CEO David Vinson said in the statement, posted to Instagram. “We apologize to the family, the community and all of those impacted by this situation and will use this as a learning tool to remind our Kids ‘R’ Kids staff on the importance of diversity and inclusivity.”

Vinson added that the corporate office will help locate alternate preschool options for families displaced by the decision.

Latino Man Whose Wife Died In Atlanta Spa Was Handcuffed, ‘Treated Like A Suspect’

As we continue to learn more about the attack on Atlanta’s Asian-American community that left eight dead, we also are learning about Mario González – a survivor of the attack who was treated like a suspect by the Cherokee Sheriff Department.

Despite having lost his wife in the gunfire, police refused to share that news with González as he was handcuffed for hours amid the chaotic scene that was unfolding in the Atlanta suburbs.

A survivor of the Atlanta spa attacks says he was treated like a suspect instead of a victim.

The Latino man and husband who survived the Atlanta spa shootings that killed his wife says cops treated him like a suspect instead of a grieving victim — keeping him handcuffed for hours without telling him his spouse was dead.

“They had me at the police station for all that time until they investigated who was responsible or what had happened,” Mario González said during an interview with the Spanish-language news site Mundo Hispanico. “In the end, they told me my wife had died.

“They knew I was her husband,” Gonzalez said. “Then they told me she was dead when I wanted to know before. I don’t know, maybe because I’m Mexican,” he said. “Because the truth is that they treated me very badly.”

Law enforcement hasn’t responded to the allegations but are already facing severe backlash.

Representatives for the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment on Sunday, but the accusations leveled by Mr. González come after the agency had already faced scrutiny after a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office described the gunman as having “a really bad day.”

The spokesman, Capt. Jay Baker, was no longer the office’s public representative on the case, and the sheriff, Frank Reynolds, apologized and defended Captain Baker as not intending to disrespect the victims or their families. “We regret any heartache Captain Baker’s words may have caused,” Sheriff Reynolds said.

González and his wife had been on a date night when the massacre took place.

The couple had arrived to Young’s Asian Massage for a fun date night, where they’d both enjoy a relaxing massage. They arrived shortly before the shooting started, Mr. González said in the video interview, and they were ushered into separate rooms for their massages.

Mr. González had met Ms. Yaun at a Waffle House restaurant, where he was a customer and she was a server. Ms. Yaun had been a single mother, raising a 13-year-old son. The couple married last year and had a daughter, who is now 8 months old. “What I need most right now is support,” Mr. González said in the interview.
