A black woman in Chicago posted a 10-minute racist and expletive-filled Facebook live video cursing a group of Arab men who were standing guard in front of their store, holding “AK47’s” and “M16s” in an attempt to prevent looters from destroying their businesses during the ongoing George Floyd riots.
In the video, she uses racist terms to describe them, claiming they do not belong in the United States, and pledging to see that their stores are burned down.
The video begins with the woman announcing that she is speaking to a Facebook live audience, then informing viewers that she is recording “A-rabs” who “don’t live here” who are “sitting outside with a whole AK-47 ready to blow black people’s brains out.”
“They let these people come outside with they AK-47s. Ak-47s to protect they stuff from black people,” said the woman. “They ready to kill black people, the A-rabs, the fake ass Ramadan motherf**kers.”
She went on, describing their guns. “They got M-16s, AK – with they people’s out here. Everything y’all. Look at this st. They got mother fkin’ AKs out here and I’m going to get my cousin that’s a police officer right now and ask him are they legally able to carry these motherf**kin’ guns like this. I need to know.”
The woman went on, questioning whether the men who likely own the stores they are guarding, blocked off using vehicles, are legal residents of the United States.
“You tell me that those motherf**kers that don’t live here, they don’t live here,” she said. “This is not a United States citizen and he is sitting outside with a whole AK-47 ready to blow black people’s brains out, but they say they from America. And this is how they protect cheap ass sh*t.”
At some point in the video, the woman seems to reveal that she is a practicing Muslim, claiming that Louis Farrakhan warned against Muslim migrants from Africa.
“This is what the minister’s talking about,” she said. “Don’t trust these people that say they from Africa. They from Morocco. Fake ass Ramadan. Yeah. They ready to kill black people over this cheap ass sh*t they got from China.”
She went on, claiming that the men protecting their stores are likely to shoot black looters in the area.
“Yeah. They ready kill somebody. Got a black man out here with these guns ready to kill us. They said don’t break into they store but they on our turf and this some mother f**kin’ cheap ass China building supplies fake ass mother f**kin’ Boost Mobile fake ass sh*t. And this is how they protect they sh*t. They ready to kill me.”
At one point, the woman called on Allah to burn down the business, screaming “Allah, gonna burn this place down during Ramadan, look how they protect these material things, Allah. Burn em down Allah.”
The woman also went on to say that there is no right to own firearms in Chicago, and seemingly threatened the men that they had best keep the armed guards at the stores for their safety.
“B**ch we gonna come back and you gotta have that gun all mother f**kin’ day because you don’t even know who I am,” she said.
Toward the end of the video, apparently not content using racial epithets targeted at Muslims, the woman also says that “Korean motherf**kers” need to leave her neighborhood, likely referencing the Korean immigrants who protected their business during the 1992 Rodney King Riots.
At one point in the video, the woman drives her vehicle and parks next to a police cruiser. The officers seem uninterested as she offers to escort them to the stores being protected by men with rifles.
