After seeing the video, the internet couldn't be happier that Rocco must face charges for her hatred and threats of violence.

Over someone's parking being crooked.







Emora Roberson was with her boyfriend, aunt and daughter when the family pulled into a strip mall. They parked next to a pickup truck.

The driver of the pickup truck, Rocco, got angry with the family because they "parked crooked."

According to Roberson, Rocco became enraged and started yelling at the family, hurling racial slurs and spit on Roberson's boyfriend. The man grew angry and warned Rocco about her behavior and language.

This is when Rocco pulled the knife for "self-defense."




Roberson started filming the incident on her phone, showing Rocco yelling. At one point, Rocco seems to slam the car door on Roberson and hop back into her pickup truck.

After using her cell phone for a bit, Rocco yells one more racial slur at the couple before the video ends.

After the incident, Roberson contacted the McMinnville police department. Rocco was arrested with assistance from the Yamhill County Sheriff's office.

She is being held with a bail of $55,000. The intimidation charges are considered a hate crime in Oregon.

There were some good points to be made about the altercation.





This incident is only the latest in a long line of viral videos depicting people of color being harassed over very mundane things. Earlier this year, a white woman called the cops on some black men barbecuing in the park and was given the nickname BBQ Becky.

The most recent of these types of incidences was a man who had hotel security called on him while making a phone call in the lobby, despite having his room key card in hand the whole time. Doubletree Hotel announced personnel were fired after their investigation of the incident.

We tell someone we trust the secret and we feel a little less lonely, and suddenly it doesn't all seem so heavy on our shoulders anymore.
