#ProtectBlackWomen: White Man Threatens to Hit Black Mother at The Spur Steak Ranches

The management staff at The Spur Steak Ranches was an UTTER DISGRACE in handling the violence directed at a mother & little children celebrating a 3 year old’s birthday party. Filthy trash bum was going to fight a woman with kids surrounding the table. He didn’t give a damn about endangering the lives of little children either. Why isn’t he in jail?

    I’ve watched this clip again and again with angry tears..

    The pent-up frustration and rage that have fueled many of my comments in the past, boiling over..

    This scene captures so many elements of the mistreatment, disregard, abuse, disrespect of, and the indignities suffered by ….and the sanctioned violence against black women in society…

    That a black woman – a mother … is deemed unworthy of respect, chivalry, protection..

    That she is the victim, but is treated as the villain…the always inconvenient black woman who doesn’t know her place and who won’t back down and insists on responding to threats against her and her kids …rocking the boat others would rather not be rocked….and threatening attempts to pretend that all is well in a virulently racist society – when it isn’t…

    That she has to always be the brave one and not only stand up for herself, but defend her own honor while protecting herself and her black children from society’s sanctioned abuse and abusers…

    That the black men present don’t step in to defend or protect her and her children, but are either too busy playing to the white abuser…or completely removed from what’s playing out before them…

    That the one black woman disingenuously walks up to admonish and shush the victim, while being deferentially protective of the white male abuser…subserviently justifying and validating his violent and abusive behavior and absolving him …in all his infallible superiority…

    That the coy enabling white wife of the white abuser as always is unabashedly complicit …

    The kids – black and white – watched this play out…

    And society’s preferred narratives and expectations….rights and sense of place, superiority, and entitlement, are reinforced and further drilled in…

    And the little black kids are left shrunken and invisible and silently traumatized by the threats of the ever looming entitled abusive white man and his enablers…and the cowardice of sorry black men….all while their brave black mother stands up and speaks up boldly….and keeps fighting not just for hers and their survival, dignity and right of place… but for their right to exist…and without any help…for herself or for them…

    The brave black mother that will be subsequently tagged and demeaned by society as ‘angry’, ‘bitter’, ‘difficult’, ‘hard’, ‘ugly’, ‘ape’…and so much worse….

    Negative tags that will be used to support negative narratives…and to further justify society’s continued mistreatment, disrespect and disregard of black women…

    Imagine that…

    And then imagine how this would have played out if the tables and races were turned in this scenario..

    • Eliihass, he wanted to fight her….before the children…in a public place. And the men acted as if they were scared. Got dammit!

        He completely disregarded the kids at the table…didn’t care one bit about them…because black kids don’t matter….And yet, from what I could make out from the audio, he was confronting her about something to do with *his* own precious kid…

      You can hear in the black mother’s voice that she is at that point where all bets are off. She is going to protect those children at whatever cost. And the vile, racist bully keeps coming, obviously reveling in the scene he has created and the attention he is getting. He is being rewarded for his abusive and violent behavior rather than being taken out of there in handcuffs which is what he deserves. When he lifted and shoved that table, that was assault, it’s on video and he needs to be charged.

      “And then imagine how this would have played out if the tables and races were turned in this scenario.. ”

      Well said, Eliihaas. Everything you said is the truth.

      • Liza, I said the same thing. When he shoved the table that was assault.

        When he angrily yanked that table, it barely missed the little girl who’d made her way to the edge of it..

        He could have hurt those kids with that violent table yank…

        And he still got to walk off as if he were the victim…even after throwing their place settings and food they’d paid for, off their table…

    This video is so disturbing. Scenes like this are being played out all over the world.

    Aside from all of the obvious issues, I just think it’s so sad for those little children to be exposed to such a vile, dangerous, and violent person. He attacked that family and he should be charged with a crime. He is a classic bully, a coward who vents his rage by assaulting women and children.
