A white woman was fired after a video showing her questioning a black man and blocking his way into his own condo building went viral. In the post on Facebook, D'Arreion Toles showed the encounter he had with the unnamed woman while he was trying to go home.


The video starts as the man is entering the building they both live in; she is coming out with her dog. She decides to block the door and ask him a series of questions to prove he lives in the building. He refuses to answer and asks her to move out of his way. When she won't budge, he moves past her. She then proceeds to follow him into the elevator to his condo and watches him enter with his key.

The woman then changes her stance and wants to introduce herself as a neighbor, but at this point, Toles is over it. He remains calm throughout the exchange, but tells her if she continues to follow him, he will call the police.


Toles posted the video he shot of the encounter to social media, where it went viral. The woman's place of employment, the Tribeca Luxury Apartments in St. Louis, saw the video and fired her. .

Toles told CBS News:

I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow. I am just glad I had my camera out. If I did not have my camera out, I feel it could have gone a totally different way. I am not mad at her. I am not upset with her. I am not going to go after her legally or anything like that. I wish her the best. would still have a conversation with her.





Of course, people were outraged:










This Twitter user is so fed up, she can't even come up with the right words:

When are incidents like this finally going to stop?

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
