Yet another White woman has taken it upon herself to play patrol officer, telling two Black women in North Carolina to leave the complex grounds where one of them also lived.
The video, originally posted on Facebook by one of the women, shows a White woman who appears to be intoxicated approaching them in a parking lot, demanding to know if they lived in the area.
“Where do you live in this place? Because this is Myers Park. This is South Park,” she says.
They calmly ask her to leave them alone after one of them tells her she lives in the building, with the woman responding by calling her a “b*tch” and asking if her “baby daddy” lives there.
She goes on to say, “What’s going on here in this parking lot that you feel that you need to congregate? I’m white and I make a $125,000 a year. What are you doing here, hanging out here on a Friday night? Cut it out. Don’t f*ck with your life, b*tch. Cut it out….Get out of here.”

WFAE reports that the woman in question, Susan Westwood, has already lost her job with Spectrum.
“The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior,” the company said in a statement to WBTV.
Also, four criminal summons have been issued for the woman—two counts of communicating threats and two counts of simple assault. This follows an incident two weeks ago where another White woman attempted to physically block a Black man from entering his own building, questioning if he lived there up until the moment he took out his keys and opened his apartment door.
