An LA worker was assaulted by a woman in an upscale apartment complex. Video shows an irate white woman calling Miguel Sanchez a ‘wetback’ several times, before throwing hot coffee at him. The entire incident was recorded on camera and posted on social media.
Sanchez told a newspaper that the woman, who had two small dogs with her, physically blocked them from the entrance. He relived the situation:
‘She was calling us wetbacks, and that we were probably there to steal stuff. After all those racial comments on us, I got my phone out and started recording.’
‘She took two steps forward and she threw the coffee directly at my face.’
Sanchez can be heard on video calling the police and telling them, “There’s a lady being super racist and crazy right now. She doesn’t let us in; we work here.”
Sanchez continued telling the newspaper:
‘I can make a difference in this world, knowing that if I act like this, maybe it will make others think that we’re not so bad, just the color my skin or the job that I do.’
Sanchez did not press charges against the woman for fear of repercussions.
