She remained silent and was about to let the accident go, but the woman decided to shout racial slurs at her instead.
Fears of heightened bigotry and hate crimes have turned into reality for some Americans in the past years, and the list of incidents keeps growing. But what many young people of today do not know is that racism has been around for years. Many of us don’t even realize that the words we use are used for labelling and stereotyping. Sadly, racism is still around, and more people are suffering from hate crimes.
Filipina nurse Quiggle Ignacio was having a peaceful meal as she waited for a friend she was supposed to meet up with. A few moments later, a woman pushing a shopping cart with a baby in it was approaching.
The woman bumped into Ignacio’s car, but the latter chose to stay silent about the minor accident. Ignacio simply looked at the woman, waiting if she was about to say something—like apologize.
Instead, the woman began shouting at Ignacio, calling her names and yelling racial slurs. Ignacio claims on her Facebook post that the woman started saying, “What are you looking at b—-? F— you chinky Asian!”
That was when Ignacio decided to step out of her car. “Why are you yelling when you are the one who hit my car? I was eating quietly,” Ignacio asked the woman, who was obviously irate.
The woman then started screaming at Ignacio’s face and reportedly said, “You f—ing staring at me you b—-!” The husband soon chimed in as he slowly approached the bickering women. “Don’t talk to her like that! F— you chinky Asian! Go back to your country b—-!”

Before Ignacio’s recording ended, the woman can be seen approaching Ignacio fast before grabbing her phone. That was when the woman attacked Ignacio several times, before the attacker’s husband stopped them, allowing Ignacio to escape. Ignacio added that she wasn’t able to get the couple’s plate number as they covered it with their cart.
NEED YOUR HELP TO FIND THEM: please send me any information. Today a racist couple at a parking lot in glendale did this…
Ignacio filed a case against the couple and used Facebook to look for them.
