A white woman in California threatened a Black family during a dispute about their dog.

Video of the incident, which occurred in Discovery Bay, was shared on social media.

“I am TIRED of living this way,” a Twitter user named Jariell explained. “I am TIRED of passive aggressiveness. I am TIRED of the fake smiles. I am TIRED that I don’t feel safe in a house that I’ve lived in for 10+ years cause of the color of my skin.”

As the video begins, the woman can be seen confronting a Black man in front of his home. She alleges that the man’s dog had assaulted her dog, but he denies it.

“We were raised around Black people and most of them were very nice,” the woman says before threatening to call the police.

“Everything is on camera,” the man replies. “I’ll be happy to show them.”

“Why are you so nasty?” the woman complains.

“You came over here to my house, on my property,” the man says calmly.

“All you’ve done is been negative!” the woman exclaims.

“I’m going to ask you to leave my property,” the man replies.

“You know what, you’re a Black person living in a white neighborhood and you’re acting like one,” the woman rants. “Why don’t you act like a white person in a white neighborhood?”

As the confrontation continues, the woman repeats her racial taunts.

“You guys are acting like Black people and you shouldn’t,” the woman opines. “You should act like white people.”

“Most people don’t act like you do,” she adds.

“You came over here with a Taser,” the man points out.

The Twitter user later explained why she had shared the video, which had been viewed over 100,000 times.
