“You don’t want me to talk to Philippine?” the old woman said.

Filipina Jenny Vela Dera then whispered: “She’s so racist.”

“Look at all the groceries they buy. Steal our food, steal our money, our jobs,” the woman said.

“So racist. Oh My God,” De Vera replied.

“We got a family to feed,” her husband added.

The woman answered: “So what? Go back to your country.”

“This is our country,” the Filipina responded.

However, the racist woman stated that De Vera is lying.

“You’re lying. Just like how got there.”

De Vera’s husband then said: “You have the right to refuse service right?”

“Take our food. Take our jobs. And then they say ‘Oh you’re prejudice’. Aww, we’re all looking for the dream,” the old woman replied

“We’ll screw our dream huh?” she added.

The footage went viral and has garnered 1.9 million views, 23, 000 likes, and 40, 000 shares as of this writing.
