Mentally ill or racist? Black woman harassed for talking in line

Once again the insanity of challenging a Black person whose presence upsets their day is back in the news. The incident occurred at an airport when YouTube vlogger HIMAY10NENCE was waiting to board a plane. An unidentified Asian woman tells her to take a seat somewhere because she is having a conversation and this apparently is bothering her.

In the video that was titled “Racially Profiled or Mentally Ill ?… You tell me …,” HIMAY10NENCE  records the troubled passenger’s indignation and ultimately humiliation in trying to make a Black person obey her.
