A white guy in Austin, Texas was caught on video harassing a Black customer for no apparent reason, and viewers are praising the victim for keeping his cool throughout the incident.
It’s unclear what started the altercation, but the minute-long footage starts with the Black man looking down a Walmart aisle before moving out of the way. When he does, two white men come down the aisle towards him. One goes the opposite direction, but the other moves towards the chill customer, trying to goad him into something.
“Don’t try to f—king go too far and start something, right? Right?” he asks. “You wanna see my back kick right now?”
The jerk’s friend yells at him to “come on,” and he starts to go, but then comes right back.
“That’s what I’m tired of…Black people, you guys think you’re so f—king strong and everything,” he says, getting up in the other man’s face.
The man simply stands there, ultimately only raising one arm in case he needs to block a blow as the white customer starts seemingly mimicking karate chops towards him.
A Walmart employee comes over and tells the aggressive man to go, and he finally does.
“Pokémon Snap just came out,” the Black customer, still being completely cool about the whole thing, says to the woman holding the camera. “I was trying to get Pokémon Snap.”
Both the Black customer and the employee were praised for their handling of the situation.
And no one had kind words for the racist moron doing the harassment.
Coinciding with the release of Pokémon Snap seemingly dates this video by about two months, but it wasn’t immediately clear if there was any sort of follow-up to the nonsense. But hopefully, if nothing else, the one guy finally got his game.
