In what I suspect is a preview of what to expect in Donald Trump's America, an older female CAC told us how she really feels, in line the other day at a J.C. Penney in Kentucky.
She was waiting to check out, in line behind a Hispanic lady who was already checking out, when the Hispanic lady's friend gave her a few more items to add to her order, rather than standing in line and waiting to check out.
Technically, this wasn't cutting in line, if the lady was giving the other lady items to add to her order, rather than purchasing them herself, but it still violated the spirit of the law, if not the letter of the law.
And to play white devil's advocate here, the old lady did kinda have a point in bringing race into it, in that many Hispanic people sneak into this country illegally, and this same disregard for the rule of law may have led the one lady to sorta kinda jump the line.
The older female CAC launched into a tirade about how the two Hispanic ladies needed to go back to where TF they came from, how they sneak into countries and feel they can just cut in line, and how taxpayers were probably paying for the items they were purchasing as well as the food they eat.
The two Hispanic ladies seemed admirably calm, but that may have just been because they had no idea what the old white lady was saying. They may have thought that she was expounding on the joy of spending the Holidays with your family.
If they understood what the lady was saying and they didn't stab her, it may have been because they really were here illegally, and they were wary of being arrested, which might lead to them being deported, what with Trump about to take office.
In that case, the old lady might have considered getting the authorities involved. It's not illegal to cut in line at J.C. Penney (only rude), but sometimes you can get a cop to arrest someone despite them not doing anything illegal—and by you, I of course mean white people.
The video went mega viral this week on Facebook, and the mall where the J.C. Penney is located says it plans to permanently ban the woman, once they identify her. But of course they're gonna say that. What else were they gonna say, that she brought up a good point?
I doubt they even bother to follow up on this. Shopping malls need all the customers they can get, especially if Trump really does deport 3 million illegal immigrants.
