The deplorables stay wilding. It’s like they can’t contain their racist little selves. This time, a white woman is seen hurling racial comments and racial slurs at a Latina and a black woman in a Wal-Mart store in Bentonville, Ark., in a video that has gone viral.
The video was shared Monday on Facebook by Eva Hicks, who is identified as the person on the receiving end of the white woman’s awful comments.
“Go back to Mexico,” the unidentified white woman can be heard telling Hicks as the video starts. “Go back ... wherever you’re from.”
Hicks can be heard explaining that all she had said was “Excuse me” as she tried to get past the woman to pick up some medicine she wanted.

“Don’t be rude,” Hicks says calmly.
“You’re the one that’s rude,” the woman retorts. “You’re in America.”
At that point, another woman’s voice can be heard in the background in disbelief.
“Are you fucking kidding me?” the other woman says. “Are you serious right now?”
“That’s none of your business; stay out of it,” the white woman says, pointing at the other woman who is off camera.
“I don’t need to stay out of it. You’re yelling loud enough for everybody to hear. Stop being ignorant,” the other woman can be heard insisting.
“A nigger calling me ignorant,” the white woman says.
“Yes,” the other woman says defiantly. “All this ‘Go back to Mexico’ and all that stuff. Yes.”
Hicks, however, is left in shock.
“Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. You are very rude,” she says.
“It’s not your country. We don’t want you here,” the white woman continues to berate Hicks.
“No, I’m not going to get out of here ... because this is my country,” Hicks insists. Hicks is heard starting to cry in the background as the white woman continues on her racist rant.
Eventually a store manager appears and attempts to bring an end to the situation before telling the white woman she has to leave because she is being “inappropriate.”
The woman argues for some time before storming off camera, and the video ends.
Hicks’ video has been viewed 12 million times and shared 180,000 times. Activist Shaun King also tweeted out the video, which racked up another 1.55 million views on his account.
A representative for Wal-Mart told NBC News that company officials have been trying to reach out to Hicks to apologize for what happened in the store, but they have not been able to reach her. Wal-Mart also said that it was hoping to reach out to the woman who attempted to help Hicks.
Randy Hargrove, the senior director of Wal-Mart media relations, called the white woman’s behavior “unacceptable.”
“We value and respect everyone who visits our stores. We have no tolerance for the language or actions of this customer and are proud that our assistant manager responded appropriately by asking her to leave the store,” he said.
Hargrove said that company officials have not yet been able to identify the woman who was hurling slurs and insults but that as soon as they did, she would be banned from all Wal-Mart stores.
