A black former United States postal worker who says he was fired after being attacked in Hingham, Massachusetts by a white woman during a profane and ethnic slur-filled rant has now posted video of the incident on YouTube.
The viral video has taken the Internet by storm leading to dozens of comments on the posters YouTube profile.
In the two videos which were originally posted on October 9, 2010 and October 11, 2010 the unidentified woman appears at the side of the mail truck angrily demanding that the worker take back a piece of certified mail, she has signed for, and that he return the signature slip in his possession to her.
When the postal worker doesn’t comply the woman launches into a tirade and at one point calls the worker, “A f****** n***er thief.”
This was followed by a declaration, “I’m not prejudiced but right now I’m getting real pissed off.”
The recording of the ordeal lasts just over four minutes during which time the worker tried to get the woman to understand why he couldn’t take back the letter, and give back the signature slip.
Many were taken aback by what can only be described as a startling exchange between the two, which was at one point punctuated with what seemed like a threat of bodily harm.
“They’ll kill you,” said the woman.
“Why do you wanna kill me, ma’am?” asked the mail carrier.
“I don’t but they will,” she replied.
“White people,” she said.
In part two of the video the woman apparently slaps the postal worker. Then she tells him, “You killed Martin Luther King. You n***ers turn on each other, you stupid, you turn on me I’m your leader, you’re dumb. You’re going to all go under.”
That accusation was followed by claims about why black women are against black men, and lessons on the IQ levels of black people when compared to other groups.
Attempts to reach the poster were unsuccessful but he told visitors to his YouTube page,
“I’ve just learned both the police department and the court have dropped the case, she is free, and no charges against her. I was never sent a noticed [sic] by the court to appear for hearing nor trial. And a year since that happened, USPS postal inspection service has not investigated this matter.”
The United States Postal Service says it did in fact investigate the matter.
“We immediately pursued this incident through the local police, which, in turn, pressed charges,” a spokeswoman said in an e-mailed statement to theGrio.
Still the postal service declined to give details as to why the employee no longer worked for them saying it was a personnel matter.
