Jasmine Xiong was out enjoying a nice shopping day with her mother when it suddenly took a nasty turn.
While conversing with her mother in her native dialect, a horrible and disgusting racist woman turned to them and told them,
“If you live here in America, speak the language”.
Xiong wasn’t going to stand around and let this woman’s uncalled-for comment slide, so she instantly confronted the woman and recorded the event on her phone.
Xiong then posted the video on Facebook, saying,
“Ignorant woman made a comment because my mom spoke Hmong to me at Walmart and she said ” If you live here in America, speak the language” so I called her out on it because America doesn’t have an official, single language, English is just the most common, spoken language in America but I only got the last part of it so here ya go!”
The post went viral and thousands of people showed their support for Xiong.
We’re proud of Xiong for standing up for herself and her mother.
Racists are everywhere and more and more people should be putting them in their place.
