*A white Orlando woman is seen in a viral video repeatedly spewing the N-word at Black landscapers as they finished up a job at her neighbor’s home.
Brandon Cordova of A Cut Above The Rest Landscaping told the Orlando Sentinel that he and his crew were completing their shift last Thursday when the woman approached two of his coworkers, twins Antonio and Antione Harris, as well as a foreman and supervisor. Cordova said she didn’t tell the crew what she was upset about before launching into her rant.
”She was in my coworkers’ face … just going off. … She was trying to say all those hateful things, and they weren’t even being bothered — they were joking around. The more they were joking around, the more she got mad,” Cordova said.
In the video, the woman hurled racial slurs at the Harris brothers, who are Black. As she got closer, one twin touched the other — warning “corona(virus)” — before they stepped back.
Later, a neighbor encouraged them to report the incident to police, but neither Cordova nor the Harris twins said they filed a report. “I hope that the message isn’t, ‘Look at this crazy lady’ or something to inspire more hate. It’s more to show that there’s people that think this way that are outdated. … If you just ignore them in the end, what are they going to do to you?” Cordova said.
