NEWNAN, Ga. — A Georgia restaurant owner says he is investigating after an employee called 911 on an African-American family who had stopped for dinner during a vacation.
WSB-TV reports that Felicia and Othniel Dobson of North Carolina on Monday had stopped for dinner at a Subway in Newnan with their four children, ages 8 to 19, when a restaurant employee called police.
In the 911 call, the employee said there are “eight people in a van” who were going back forth to the bathroom and possibly putting soda in water cups.
The couple said the responding police officer and store owner apologized.
Felicia Dobson said the family did nothing wrong and “can’t change our skin color.”
In a statement, Subway franchisee Rosh Patel said he has reiterated “the importance of making everyone feel welcome.”
A woman’s unhinged racist rant on a New York bus has gone viral after footage emerged of her repeatedly telling her fellow passengers to “get the f**** out of my country.”
Footage has emerged online of how a Rockland County commuter launched into a racist diatribe while travelling on Route number 235. The incident happened on Saturday at 5pm and was filmed by an eyewitness, according to the Mount Pleasant Daily Voice.
The footage posted on Facebook reveals how the unidentified woman used the N-word while shouting at passengers who she labelled “illegal immigrants.”
A number of videos of the woman’s rant have now appeared online. “Get the f**** out of my country,” she can be heard screaming.
Go back to your f****ing country. In this country we have what is called the First Amendment rights, which means I can say whatever the f**** I want,” the woman hollers, after she is confronted about her language.
“I hope you’ve all got your f***ing papers. I’m sick of you motherf****ers. You got papers to be in this country?”
During the transport disturbance, the woman also attempts to grab the mobile phone out of the hand of a man who is filming her. “What are you taping me?” she says, before trying to snatch the device.
