Racist Man Called People Racial Slurs At A Long Beach Sushi Restaurant, Then Got Punched In The Face
When people say that our country is divided, they’re not trying to increase division or cause hostility — it’s a fact. We’re seeing hateful and racist all over the country, even in the most diverse parts of the nation. From New York City to Los Angeles, racist and bigoted people are getting more comfortable being vocal in public. Here’s the latest example of growing racism in the U.S. that took place on Mother’s Day in Long Beach, California.
On May 12, a fight broke out between a racist white man and patrons at Aburi Premium AYCE Sushi in Long Beach. This is how it began.
According to @IvanCyclist, the white man in the video became agitated because in his mind he thought people were being seated before him. @IvanCyclist tweeted that his party, which included his mom, sat down just ten minutes prior to his arrival.
There was a 30-minute wait, and people could sign up for a spot electronically and then a text when their table was ready. It’s pretty standard these days for restaurants to text people when they can be seated.
Some people waited in their cars, so when the man saw a group get seated, he may have assumed that they didn’t have to wait in line, which was not the case at all.
@IvanCyclist tweeted that the man became irate that he had to wait for the table and began insulting the staff and patrons.
People started shouting back at him telling him to leave, but the man wouldn’t take no for an answer. Then things got heated.
Once the white man began to hurl racist remarks and mock the black and brown customers, that is when things got out of control.
@IvanCyclist said that the man called the hostess a “dumb bitch” then got angry at him because he was recording the entire incident.
The white man called a black individual a “monkey man,” and that is when another person lunged at him.
A black woman enters the recording and begins to punch him. That is when it seems as if the man starts to step out of the restaurant. @IvanCyclist said that the woman got in at least five punches and you can see it in the video as well.
The restaurant has yet to comment on the incident. Check out the videos below.
