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:

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.
