A Florida woman, identified as Gina Brashear, was videotaped hurling the n-word and other expletives after she was angry about a truck being parked in the road. Over the course of the nearly 3-minute video, Brashear could be heard saying the n-word 6 times, which she defended by stating that it wasn't illegal.
According to a local NBC affiliate, Brashear directed her tirade at Will Osley and Melvin Finley of OF Logistics. The two Black men were working to unload sheet metal from a semi-truck on Saturday (January 24). Finley told NBC 2, "Me and him are on the back of the truck. We’re still working. We’re still unloading the sheets of metal onto the pallet. We start hearing this commotion on the other side of the truck jut getting louder and louder and more intense."
When NBC 2 reached out to Brashear for a comment, she stated, "It doesn’t matter if I said it 100 times in 30 seconds. There’s nothing illegal about saying it." When asked if she feels it's okay to say the n-word, she stated, "Absolutely. Do I have reasons to be racist? Absolutely I do."
Brasher also reacted to online backlash, stating, "The one you need to get straight coming from me, I don’t care who’s upset. I don’t care that I’m called a racist."
