In these horrifying times, it's sadly comforting to hear a story of racism in the U.S. that ends with karmic justice being served (and that doesn't end with the President encouraging and endorsing the hateful rhetoric). Yes, that's the silver lining we have to work with in 2019.

Earlier this week, a writer named Jaime Primak was on a plane to NYC when a racist passenger, perhaps empowered by Trump's racist rhetoric, told her to "please stop speaking Spanish." Immediately, she says the man sitting next to him came to her defense by speaking in Spanish, and then the flight attendant joined in. She says the gestures made her so happy, she wanted to "get up and dance."

People who were told to 'go back to their country' share their experiences with the racist phrase

"It’s rooted in centuries of ignorance, violence and white supremacy."

ICYMI: our President used a despicable racist phrase this weekend to bully and disparage members of Congress who have challenged him. In a series of tweets that should've been deleted the second they left his tiny, racist brain, he told "'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen" they should "go back to where they came from." The tweet was most likely directed at AOC, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color who represent, and are from, the United States. It's disgusting; it's racist; and it's not surprising given that Trump is a known disgusting racist.

Racist lady attacks women at grocery store for speaking Spanish. Then another white lady stepped in.

“Stand up and say something. Letting that happen is really what's wrong with our country.”

A random stranger yelling at two Mexican women for speaking Spanish is enough to make you lose your faith in humanity, but your faith will soon be restored when an ally stepped in and called her out.

It went down on Monday at a grocery store in a city called Rifle (only in America, folks). A woman identified as Linda Dwire freaked out at the sounds of something other than English. A good Samaritan named Kamira Trent stepped in and said, “I'm calling the cops. You leave these women alone! Get out!”
