A Miami woman is sharing her experience at her grocery store after an encounter with another customer.

The woman says she was bumped by the customer and called a racial slur.


Nickiea Johnson was in the Publix Supermarket in the Brickell neighborhood when the incident took place. Another customer bumped into her, so Johnson asked the customer to say:

"Excuse me."

Instead the woman responded with the n-word.

Johnson took out her cell phone to record the woman and followed her around the store. In the video she posted to Instagram, she confronts the woman, daring her to say it again.

"Call me an [n-word] again."

The woman responds:

"I don't have to call you one. Get away from here. I will call security, and they are on surveillance!"

The woman yells at Johnson to leave her alone, and then calls her the n-word again. As she walks away, she tells Johnson to "go back to Harlem."

The whole exchange would be surprising if it didn't seem to happen so often.

After the exchange, Johnson left the grocery store. She posted the video to her Instagram where it has been viewed thousands of times.

Johnson says she isn't looking for retribution, just to increase people's understanding.

"I felt humiliated and insulted,"

She said:

"I just pray for her. I pray for her, and I pray for any children that she is raising with that mindset."

The video has drawn all kinds of commentary and criticism. Some lauded Johnson for not yelling or starting a fight. Others felt following around another customer was harassment.

And there were also those who wanted to excuse racism.

As the video and news story circulated, more news sites picked it up. This had many offering their own opinions on the subject.

Hopefully this discussion leads to more understanding, as Johnson wanted.





Many believe that racism is making a comeback with all the stories about it lately. However, its more likely to have always been here, but cellphone cameras allow us to catch it more easily.

Just last month, a North Carolina woman called another restaurant patron the n-word. After being confronted and interviewed on the news, the woman refused to apologize and said she would use it again.

Do better, folks.

Some jobs will just give you night terrors forever!

TW: There are a lot of horrible crimes disclosed here. Violent.

Prison is a horrifying place. It is brimming with society's worse. And the people who work and patrol those prisons are living in fear on the daily. Now not everyone is pure evil but plenty are, and those who keep us safe from these people lay their loves down, probably with not enough pay. Imagine spending day in and day out with murderers and lunatics? No thanks.

Hold my beer!

We all know Murphy's Law is real. And never, NEVER say... "So what next?" That is just calling on the spirits of evil to mess with you. Life is a struggle and sadly some moments are met with sorrow then met with hardship and then misery. It's a wonder we all get out alive..... Oh. Wait.

Warning: This is adult subject matter. Escorting is an arduous job. And it is a job. Maybe not one we'd all love to do but it's work none the less, especially when you have to mess with someone you may not find the most "aesthetically appealing." The workers in the trade have an endless well of stories to tell us. And you know we're dying to hear. Our questions on this topic are bottomless.
