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.

Some of our possessions are no-brainer, have to have them, best things in the universe. Others are total beaters, through and through liabilities, that should have been trashed years ago.

But what about those possessions that fall right in between?

In the age of the internet, sometimes it can be very cool to hate on things just because other people do. Bandwagons can be fun, right? But honestly, not all of the things hated on actually deserve it. Save your hate for things that actually call for it.
