Video shows white woman hurling anti-Asian slurs at USPS worker

A white woman shouted racial slurs at an Asian employee at a California post office, video shows.

The unidentified woman was caught on camera using an anti-Asian slur while arguing with a USPS employee Thursday at a post office in Los Altos, where a customer standing behind her recorded the hateful interaction as another called police, according to the 90-second clip.

“Can’t you just do your job?” the woman loudly asked the employee. “It’s simple. A letter was certified return receipt – I don’t need to hear all this other stuff that you want to try to dictate to me. I’ve been in this country for 38 years, I think I should know what I’m doing.”

The woman then muttered “ch–k” as she continued to complete her transaction, prompting two other people nearby to denounce the slur, video shows.

“Hey, not appropriate!” one woman said. “Absolutely not!”

“Whoa, whoa, that is not acceptable, that’s not acceptable,” another customer said. “She said ch–k. You might need to go somewhere.”

Another customer can be then heard calling Los Altos police, saying a woman is “screaming loudly” while yelling racial slurs at the Main Street post office, video shows.

The woman then calls the postal worker a “bitch” before hurling the racial slur once again as she walks out, according to the footage.

“Oh my God!” one man said. “Get out of here! Bye, Karen! Oh my God. Wow – terrible lady.”

Tyler Brumfield, who recorded the incident, said he was stunned by what he heard.

“We are all humans and we should respect each other as such,” Brumfield told KGO. “Because someone is different or has different melanin doesn’t mean we have to disregard the humanity of that particular person.”
