Sprint CEO 'disgusted' by woman's racist rant in store

Sprint CEO 'disgusted' by woman's racist rant in store
Viral video captures woman using a racial slur against a Latino customer in a Virginia Sprint store.
by Steven Musil May 23, 2017 4:51 PM PDT

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure is condemning the behavior of a female customer caught on video using a racial slur against another customer in a Sprint store in Virginia.

The video captures an unidentified woman referring to a Latino man as a "spic," a racial slur used against Hispanics and Latinos, and threatening to physically assault him. The video has gone viral, attracting nearly 50,000 retweets since being posted on Twitter by civil rights activist Shaun King, also a reporter for the New York Daily News.

"It's happened again," King wrote. "White woman calls polite Latino man a spic, threatens him, says she's offended to hear him speak Spanish. America. 2017."

I love it (not really) when these ignorant descendants of illegal immigrants say This is America! Speak American!

I think which American language are we talking about here?

Crow? Cherokee? Sauk? Potawatomi? Dakota Sioux? Navajo? Mohawk? Lakota Sioux? Apache? And many others.

But they always mean the bastardized King's English from the invaders homeland that passes for American language.

Ironic, ain't it?

"Honey, shut up! They're usually good at boxing and he's huge."

Also, was she talking in front of her kids? Or, was she talking like that in front of someone else's children? Either way, reeeeaaalll classy, yo.

76. And this is why I love the Internet.

You know, people are so freaking ignorant. I speak Spanish - enough to get by. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being fluent, I'm maybe a 5 or 6. I *wish* I were fluent.

When I encounter this crap, which I do rarely, I generally inform the ignorant that our founding fathers spoke more than one language if they were at all educated. It is, in fact, a sign of great education to speak another language. When I work with my Spanish-speaking clients, I always praise how wonderful it is that their children are bilingual. The kids generally beam when I say this within earshot of them.

66. I don't get that argument at all that we need the racists.

75% of the potential voters didn't vote for Trump. There was 50% who didn't vote at all, so maybe aim for that block of people instead of the alt-right, who were once called Ron Paul Libertarians, who were once called McCain-Palinesque Renegeades, and so forth.

80. Yes. Just to appeal to those a-holes, think of the the 180 degree switch in positions...

we'd have to take as a party to make these people comfortable.

And think how uncomfortable those new stances would make people in our base, people who soon not be in our base once we start catering to deplorables.

Wonder if the ones advocating going after trump voters thought that far ahead — that we'd lose voters probably more voters than we gain in trying to go after people who voted for trump.

I know I wouldn't stick around if our party suddenly lurched right to accommodate them.

I still blame the MSM for normalizing his bigotry and misogyny. He never would have been elected without it.

77. Somebody recorded and released it, though.

It's possible that nobody else heard the woman.

25. Woman identified as Tiffany Cormier, works for American Airlines

http://www.theroot.com/woman-goes-on-racist-rant-in-manassas-va-store-calls-1795454557

Updated Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 12 p.m. EDT: The woman who went on a racist rant in a Manassas, Va., Sprint store has been identified as Tiffany Cormier, The Root has confirmed from a source reached through Fusion. Cormier is married to a Latino man and works for American Airlines in its payroll department and has reportedly since been laid off, according to the source.

When The Root contacted American to verify Cormier’s employment status, the airline stated that it does not confirm the employment of its employees but added, “We don’t tolerate discrimination at American Airlines, and we are looking into these allegations.”

I hope DSS looks into this family. Maybe it was all a big joke, and maybe not. She encourages her little kids to "get blood" by fighting the employee.

and I've been in a long term relationship with a woman who still refuses to accept that I'm American too.

There are all types of people in this world.

31. The Rubes are surprised when they are talking so loud on their phone and someone says something,

whether helpful or politely asking them to lower their voice. Her husband was with her and she couldn't talk to him?

And it's funny that Juan sounds very Americans, no detection of an accent and yet the idiot thinks he's illegal. I do hope she gets called out for such deplorable behavior.

39. As loud as that woman was talking, it was not eavesdropping

Everyone in the store could hear her without making an effort. If you watch the video posted above, her volume is MUCH higher than the man who was just trying to give her some help.

If you don't want to be overheard while talking on a cell phone, lower your volume and go to a more private area - NOT in a restroom, please. (Having been in restrooms and being forced to listen to other people's cell phone comversations.)

it doesn't give random strangers the right to insert themselves into your private phone conversation. that's rather creepy, especially when the stranger is a man and you are a young woman.

still the woman completely overreacted.

56. She was in a public space and should have no expectation of privacy

That is the way it works for taking photos, same for cell phone conversations when they are so loud the people around can not help but hear.

If she had been talking that loudly to her husband who apparently was with her she would not have an expectation that the people around her could not hear her. Just because she is on a cell phone, that does not magically isolate her from everyone else in hearing distance.

The man who tried to help her talked much more quietly and she could hear him just fine so it does not seem to me that the sound level in the store was loud. If the person on the other end of the call can't hear her, she should suggest that she call back from a more private place.

I have absolutely no sympathy for loud cell phone users. When they go on to use racial slurs to someone who was just trying to help her and then tries to encourage her companion to fight him, I hope she gets all the crap the internet can throw at her.

I found several articles about how to troll annoying cell phone users. One of my favorites was to sit or stand next to them and have a pretend "mirrored" cell phone conversations where your comments are responses to what they say. The guy calls it cell phone crashing:

75. That only applies...

in this situation if you stretch the definition of eavsdrop to mean being forced to listen to a one sidded phone conversation in a very public place. If you don't want strangers weighing in on your phone conversation then don't put your phone conversation in their faces. In order to have your privacy protected you need to act privately.

79. We don't know what happened before the recording began.

It sounds like she was complaining to Sprint that the store didn't have something she wanted. I think she had been discussing this with the Sprint employee in the store before she called customer service. The phone call sounds like an extension of a discussion she and the employee had been having.

but people like this need a hypothetical slap in the face, meaning more people need to stand up and let them know their racist behavior will absolutely not be tolerated in a civil society. This behavior needs serious pushback. Hard.
