Youtube: The Oregonion

In a viral video this week, an Oregonian woman was caught yelling racial slurs at a young black couple and pulling a knife over a parking dispute.


Amber Rocco was positively identified as the woman in the video.

She was arrested and is facing two counts of intimidation, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, two counts of menacing and two counts of harassment.

The Oregonian shared the video on YouTube with a warning about the language.

Oregon knife-wielding woman hurls racial slurs over parking, black couple says youtu.be


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.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
