California Woman Goes On Racist Rant Against Woman Exercising In Park
A young Filipino-American woman who trains in a public park captured an older woman on Wednesday who gave an explosive swearword against her - the latest in a series of videos documenting racist interactions that have millions of views in triggered on social media.
"Damn it from this world. Get out of this state and go back to the damned Asian country you belong to, ”said the unidentified older woman.
The younger woman, who was identified as "sherry" for fear of additional harassment, told CNN that the incident had not been provoked. Sherry jumped and stretched on a flight of stairs in Torrance, California, she said when the woman appeared.
"[A] ll suddenly I see her and she walks around another Asian lady doing tai chi and then goes down the stairs, then up my stairs and then comes back down and somehow nudges me to my left Shoulder, and then I said, "Oh, Jesus," the young woman told the network.
The older woman then started yelling at her for "talking to me" and said, "You will be kicked in the ass by my family. They will fuck you!"
When asked what was going on, the older woman claimed that Sherry had climbed the stairs.
"I took care of my own business," Sherry told CNN. "I thought that would never happen to me. I thought if you just looked after your business nothing could happen. "

Another video appeared on Thursday, showing the same older woman in the same blue and white floral outfit who has racistly attacked another person - this time a man parked next to her car.
"You know what? I'm not a racist person, but do you know what? You have to go home. Go home, ”she tells the man.
"Do you know how many people can't stand being here?" She continues.
The woman seemed annoyed that the man was parked too close to her, although the video shows her car positioned across the line next to the next parking lot.

The videos follow an incident on the opposite coast at the end of May when a white woman accused a black man of threatening her life because he asked her to follow the parking rules and put her dog on a leash. The man had only seen birds in New York's Central Park.
That same week in Minneapolis, a white policeman knelt on George Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, resulting in the death of the black man. The video of this murder sparked a continuing wave of anti-racism protests in the US and around the world.
