Lennys Bermudez Molina is a loan officer in Scottsdale, Arizona. She is also a Puerto Rican woman. She was at a restaurant called Wildflower in her home town when she asked a white woman whether she could sit at the empty table next to her.

The woman responded...

"Do I have a choice?"

Then, Molina took out her phone and began to film what followed, which was a lengthy series of racist remarks in which the white woman told Molina that America should be "all white."

The video can be seen below.

The video opens with this interchange...

"Well I have never been told that somebody prefers whites instead of me."
"Yes, that would be me. I'd prefer the whole freaking nation to be white. How about that?" the white woman replies as she reads a letter at the table.

Then Molina responds...

"You know that's never going to happen, right?"

To which the white woman says...

"Oh, it's going to happen. You will be wiped out. Trust me."

Molina says that the restaurant kicked the woman out and then walked Molina to her car for safety.

The end of Molina's Facebook post reads...

"I know that the scars of racism run deep in this great country I love. Being Puerto Rican, I am a proud American...and equally proud Puerto Rican. This lady was lucky my PR-ness didn't come out!!

I wish for a world for my children and my children's children's to never worry about this stuff..."

People were upset by the video.



And most thought it was a sign of the times.






Others pointed out why exposing people like this is important.


Trump may only be a symptom, but his embrace of racism and bigotry has certainly given cover to other racists and bigots to espouse their views out in the open.

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.

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?
