Woman Proudly Uses Racial Slur on Camera at Six Flags Fiesta Texas


A San Antonio woman recorded her encounter with a racist woman, who called her a derogatory name, on Saturday as she spent the day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Angela Gomez uploaded a short video clip of a family of four gathering their things to move. But there's shouting going on, Gomez is behind the camera telling the other woman to repeat what she said.

"WET-BACK," the woman proudly says into the camera.

In the Facebook post, which has since been removed, Gomez wrote that she had reserved picnic tables in the theme park and the family had asked if they could sit down. Gomez agreed, but asked the parents to tell their son to sit on the seat of the bench since he was sitting on the actual table part and they were eating.

Things escalated, causing the woman to call Gomez and her family "wetbacks." You can see that video below.
