A disturbing incident involving two African American bikers in Michigan has gone viral as a white woman is caught on video harassing them.
She Claimed to Wield “White Privilege”
Darius Bankhead Sr. and James Grisham, residents of Muskegon, shared their distressing encounter with a woman who claimed to wield “white privilege.”
Bikers Were Heading to a Festival
The unsettling incident, detailed in a report by The Daily Beast, unfolded as the bikers were en route to the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven.
She Tailed Them and Was Honking
As Bankhead and Grisham cruised on their motorcycles, their journey was marred by an unexpected and distressing encounter.
A woman behind the wheel of a Jeep began tailing them aggressively, accompanied by honks of disdain and offensive gestures.
They Pulled Over and Took Out a Camera
Feeling the need to document the incident, the bikers pulled into a parking lot, aiming to capture the woman’s license plate on camera.
She Took a Handicapped Spot
The situation escalated further when the woman followed them into the parking lot, even taking an unauthorized handicapped spot.
She Started Hurling Insults at Them
A confrontation ensued as she approached the bikers, unleashing a barrage of verbal abuse and hostility. Video footage captured by Bankhead showcased the intensity of the exchange.
She Was Slurring Her Words
When they tried to call the police, she responded with a slurred, expletive-laden response, saying she didn’t like the police and made fun of the bikers’ motorcycles.
She Insulted Their Motorcycles
Her words were intense as she belittled their choice of motorcycles.
‘Just Remember, I’m White Privilege’
She then retreated to her vehicle, but not before leaving a final shocking proclamation: “Just remember, I’m white privilege!”
Her Words Cut Deep
The weight of her words echoed the deeply rooted racial inequalities that persist in society.
The Bikers Reported the Incident
Grisham and Bankhead reported the incident to the police, seeking justice for the ordeal they had endured.
