A Chicago woman's rant in the checkout line at a craft store has gone viral and inspired another shopper to start an online fundraiser to help the employee the shopper yelled at.
The woman soon realizes she is being filmed, and turns on those with cameras out, including the woman whose video is posted below, Jessie Grady.
"Just be kind to people", she said. This is only 10 minutes of the nearly 45 minute ordeal this woman put the employees of this store through. We regret that our customers and team members were affected by this unfortunate incident and are grateful for the leadership of our store team in working to resolve it without further escalation.
"You're not going to give me some sort of liberal lecture about who's a human", the customer continues in her rant.
"I was discriminated against by two black women screaming at me across the store because I refused to buy one of the Michaels bags, and I wanted a paper bag instead", she says. "And I voted for Trump, so there. And look who won", the unidentified woman is heard yelling at employees. She was threatening these women's jobs, shouting that she was a Trump supporter, that African American women were discriminating against her, she called them animals, said it was reverse racism, etc.

"The last person who said out loud they voted for Trump got beat up". You gonna kick me out because of that?
Grady recorded the confrontation and posted it to YouTube.
According to Grady, the manager is an "inspiring" and "creative" woman who put her small design business on hold to work as a manager at Michaels to support her family. But they're also full of what the scholar and author Robin DiAngelocalls "white fragility"-"a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves". Grady has since created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the employee who took the brunt of the rage "to try to make her busy holiday season brighter". "Her actions are - and the fact that this behavior has been normalized is unacceptable", Grady said.
As of Sunday night, the campaign had raised over $1000, well surpassing its goal of $400.
The manager tried to calm the woman down, asking her not to use profanity because there are children nearby, but the attitudinal shopper shot back, "You're not my mother, and I will do whatever I want to do".
