‘You’re speaking immigrant’: Oklahoma man goes on berserk rant caught on video by Hispanic woman

An Oklahoma woman was accosted at a thrift store by another shopper who overheard her speaking Spanish on her cell phone.

The Durant woman, Maty Roberts, was speaking to her sister on the phone while shopping at Goodwill when an unshaven white man approached her and began hurling racial slurs, reported KXII-TV.

She said he also harassed her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend before Roberts began recording video.

“He just kept spitting out words, like, ‘You’re an immigrant and you need to go back to your country,’” said the woman’s daughter, Alison Roberts.

The boyfriend, Dakota Hodge, confronted the man as Roberts recorded the encounter.

“Sir, are you the one who hates wetbacks?” Hodge said.

The man replied by repeating a racial slur over and over.

“Wetbacks, wetbacks, wetbacks — because you’re an immigrant,” the man said, and interrupted when Roberts tried to speak. “No, you’re speaking immigrant.”

Roberts said her daughter left the store after the man approached her, and then the man confronted her at the checkout line.
