Monica Johnson was on her way home from work in Nashville when she noticed a man in a truck next to her at a red light in front of an elementary school. He unleashed a tirade that managed to cram more hate speak and vitriol into six seconds than most people will hear in a year.
At first confused as to what was happening, Johnson turned on her phone’s camera and rolled down her window, just in time to catch this:
“Put it down n****! Put it down n****! If you let me catch you b****, I'll punch the f*** out of you.”
His intentions were immediately clear to Johnson, who is African-American.
“It wasn’t because of me. It’s because of what I represent and I represent black people, but I hadn’t done anything personal to him,” she told a local Fox affiliate.
Johnson then decided to share the clip on Facebook in hopes of people recognizing the truck’s driver.
“I want his employers to see it, his friends to see it, his church, his family. I want them to see how he behaves towards people of color. I’m not the only black person here in Nashville. If he would say that to me, he would say it to someone else.”
