Woman In Chicago Michaels Store Goes On A Racist Rant Against African American Employees
The night before Thanksgiving, this woman went on a racist rant in a Michaels store in Chicago and it was caught on tape.
Jessie Grandy was shopping with her young daughter on the eve of Thanksgiving this year when the woman behind her started yelling at employees in a racist rant.
"I was directly in front of this customer in line, I stopped at the exit to show my 2 year old a Christmas ornament and witnessed first-hand that the Michaels’ employees did nothing to provoke this verbal attack, and in fact treated all customers with professionalism and courtesy. I was so shocked by this unprovoked attack that I captured 17 minutes of it on video on my phone."
The woman continued to shout and spew hate at not only the employees but at Jessie. This is such a sad situation, and disturbing, but Jessie has made something good come out of all that nasty behavior. Jessie started a gofundme.com page for the employee who took all the verbal abuse.
"I’d like to show her that many people are horrified by how this woman treated her, and that we stand with her and appreciate her hard work. She inspired me because despite the hateful words that were being hurled in her direction, she stood in that entranceway calm and unmoving to protect her staff and customers. Her calmness calmed me and I saw a true leader, which in today’s world, is something to be rewarded. All proceeds from this gofundme will be given to this employee, who has three children, to try to make her busy holiday season brighter. In the current climate I believe it’s very important that we go out of our way to treat each other with dignity, kindness and politeness, and that we stand up for each other when we see people being mistreated."
