Daughter Says Something To Mom In Spanish- Never Expected Man Beside Her To Act Like This

A mother has been left in shock after she and her daughter had a horrible outing at a local store. The two women were verbally abused in a Goodwill in Durant, Oklahoma for being Mexican. Maty Roberts was shopping at the store with her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend when a man began shouting racial slurs at Ms. Roberts' daughter before turning on her. Ms. Roberts responded by confronting the man, all the while filming his discriminatory outburst.

Maty Roberts didn’t expect to be shouted at and abused when she went to a Goodwill store in Durant, Oklahoma, with her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend. However, that is exactly what happened when an unnamed man began to shout racist slurs at Ms. Roberts and her daughter. Ms. Roberts, who managed to film most of the incident on camera, told KFOR that the man began verbally attacking her daughter when she was in another area of the store. “Like, ‘I hate wetbacks, why don’t you go back to Mexico, speak English,'” Ms. Roberts claimed the man stated.

Ms. Roberts, who overheard the incident, was shocked and outraged at the attack on her daughter and decided to confront the bully head on. “Sir, are you the one who hates wetbacks?” Ms. Roberts asked the man. “I am an American citizen.”

The man was not ashamed of his opinion, loudly answering, “yeah, Wetbacks, wetbacks, cause you’re an immigrant.” Ms. Roberts was appalled at the man’s blatant dislike of Mexicans, revealing that she never thought she would be the one exposed to such hatred: “You only see this on television, that happens somewhere in a different state, bugger cities. Not here in Durant,” Ms. Roberts commented.

The racist man did not just stop at his initial comment. The man can be heard, on video, continually taunting Ms. Roberts and her daughter, saying, “No speak English, I no speak English. No comprende. Lousy speaking immigrant.”

“I came here legally and pay my taxes,” Ms. Robert affirmed, describing her own journey to America. Ms. Roberts, while being born in Mexico, moved to the United States of America in 1979 and has remained here ever since. In 2008, Ms. Roberts was finally granted citizenship. Despite Ms. Roberts informing the man of her citizenship status, he was not satisfied and continued to rant at Ms. Roberts.

Eventually, police were called to the scene; however, the elderly man refused to hand over his I.D. “We speak English. English only,” he continually stated to police when being escorted off the premises.

Ms. Roberts acknowledged that the attack on her heritage was inexcusable, she does not believe that his arrest will change his outlook or opinion of migrants. Ms. Roberts indicated that she would rather hear an apology from the man. Furthermore, instead of making this attack of her culture political, Ms. Roberts took the opportunity to use this video as a tool to condemn bullying, regardless of the reasoning behind it.

"Hopefully by seeing this video and by the comments, they understand that it's not acceptable," Roberts said. "It's not acceptable."
