White Woman dubbed ‘Peppermint Patty’ calls 911 on Black Woman for exiting parking lot wrong
Social media users are calling for charges to be filed and that a white woman is fined and ordered to do community service after video surfaced of her calling the cops because a Black woman exited through the wrong lane while leaving a store.
According to a yahoo.com report, when the woman realized she was yet another victim of #ParkingWhileBlack, she called the white woman “Peppermint Patty” and “a racist.”
“Cut the n***** card out,” the white woman replied. She then told the 911 operator that she was “getting attacked” by “two black women calling me a racist.
“It’s a criminal act to burden emergency resources for this. Let’s find out who she is and petition the DA,” wrote one Twitter user.
User @sahluwal tweeted: “A black woman accidentally exited the wrong parking lane while visiting store & was verbally harassed by this white woman. The woman proceeded to call the cops on her for her driving & when called a racist, she responded by saying “cut the “N” card out.” Twitter, do your thing.”
The clip lasts nearly half a minute before it cuts off so it’s unclear if the cops ever showed up. But the sleuths on Black Twitter are working overtime trying to identify her.
“Do these racists not understand the concept of video or the power of social media or the bitter taste of karma?” one person wrote.
“I really think people like this woman who take it upon themselves to call the police over nonsense should be charged, fined, maybe both. It’s a shameful abuse of resources,” another said.
Last month, a similar #ParkingWhileBlack incident happened in Portland, Ore. when a white woman, dubbed “Crosswalk Cathy,” called the cops on a Black couple who she felt had parked too close to the crosswalk, the Portland Mercury reported.
“She didn’t try to talk to us, she just called the police,” Rashsaan Muhammad told the publication. “Why would people spend the time just trying to make our lives harder instead of talking it out like neighbors?”
