On my (unknowingly) last day of class on campus, I had to stop at Walmart before class to pick up some supplies for me and my classmates. I was afraid to go alone, so I brought my fiancé with me but we ended up getting separated amongst the crowd of panicked shoppers. As I made my way to the crafts section, a black man stopped in front of me, pointed and screamed "YOU STARTED IT ALL!" I was so shocked all I could respond with was a DISGUSTED look at this man--to which he responded with, "Nah, just joking" and patted my shoulder. No one was laughing. Right as I started walking away, I heard him shout again through the aisles, "YOU STARTED THIS. You look like you have some Chinese in you." I couldn't see him at this point but he did this without anyone stopping him for a good 2-3 times after me to other individuals who appeared of Asian descent. ...WHY ARE YOU POINTING OUT THAT HE IS BLACK??? YOU ARE JUST AS RACIST!!! SO, NOW YOU KNOW HOW RACISM FEELS! GOOD LUCK!!
WHAT DID YOU DO / HOW DID YOU RESPOND?
I was absolutely speechless. All I could do was react with a nasty GLARE. Kinda glad I didn't feed into his behavior or else it could've escalated into something more dangerous
