A white woman was caught on camera spewing racial slurs at a Black student in a horrific rant.
Kathryn Graves, a 27-year-old Yale PhD student, filmed the horrific confrontation in New York City with the woman who repeatedly called Graves a ‘n*****’ and an ‘ape.’
Graves told The New York Post that she was wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt on Saturday when the woman began yelling at her, prompting her to turn down the volume in her headphones.
The woman who is seen clutching a case of Natural Ice beer shouts, “Obama’s fucking dick right nest to his ape fucking wife.’
She then begins imitating a monkey before repeatedly calling Graves a ‘n***** ape.’
‘What’s the matter, you got time to do your fucking pink ass fucking hair, you n***** Obama fucking ape.’
Graves stays composed throughout the encounter, but said the woman’s words later sunk in.
‘I kind of blocked off how hurtful the words were and more was just thinking pragmatically,’ she told The Post.
‘Before I even started to emotionally process what was going on, I just knew I had to record it (and) try and figure out what to do if she tries to attack me.’
‘I just recorded her and she went off…there was nothing on my end that preempted this, other than me being here. I have never had someone just spew hatred in my face.’
Graves said she has since sent the video to the NYPD and has spoken with police about another possible victim of the same woman, who has not been identified. She said she thinks the woman may be homeless or mentally unstable, but said ‘racism is not a symptom of either of those things.’
‘If have no desire to see this woman like locked up,’ she said, explaining that she would rather the woman get mental health treatment.
‘If her hands had been empty she could have hit me. It could escalate at some point. If nothing happens, this woman could be dangerous.’Follow us:
