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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
