Watch: ‘Racist’ argument break

Look, its no secret that South Africa is still plagued by race issues. We see it in comments on social media and we see it happen in our own lives from time to time. The infamous Spur incident sparked a countrywide debate on whether the man was “racist” or not. By the time Spur had apologised and confirmed the black mother’s version of events, some people were attacking Spur for “hating whites”.

Over the last week, another video has started to gain momentum online, it is sure to cause similar amounts of outcry and debate. On the 28th of April outside the Observatory KFC in Cape Town, two young white women filmed parts of a racial argument that they had after they were confronted by a group of black men.

Rachel Emma Wood recorded the video and explained her version of events, the clip also shows a young black man leaning into the car and accusing Rachel and her friend of being racist towards them. Rachel calmly listens to the man and at one point even asks her friend to keep quiet and let him finish explaining how he felt.

Things were already heated and they continued to do escalate throughout the argument as the man became more and angrier, he could be seen hurling slurs at the car.

“You are a fucking disgrace of a white person!

“Your forefathers took this land from us, you guys fucked us up entirely, systematically.”

When Rachel tried to defend herself the man can be seen telling her don’t say anything “coz you know what, that’s white privilege!”

Outside from the video Rachel claims that the man and his friends kicked the car and even threatened to kill her. The man can be seen on camera calling her ” a poor white” as she was driving a Toyota Corolla.
