A Cheektowaga, New York man was repeatedly called the “n-word” in a Dollar General parking lot by an irate White woman and he captured the entire thing on video, reports the International Business Times.
The verbal assault was set into motion when the man allegedly scared the woman, identified as Janelle Ambrosia, and her children when he started his vehicle.
The video goes on for approximately four minutes and, during that time, Ambrosia loudly flings the “n-word” at the unidentified man, eventually threatening to throw her coffee on him.
“You’re a n–ger!”
“I called you a n–ger. You’re a n–ger! Nasty f–king n–ger!”
Ambrosia also encourages her husband, who she’s on the phone with, to come “kill” him:
“Talk to this f–king n–ger right now. I’m telling you, he’s recording me,” she said to her husband. “Tell him you will f–king kill him. I will f–king yank his ass out the car.”
In an interview Wednesday with WBLK’s Big Rob, Ambrosia claims that the man instigated the one-sided exchange by calling her a “crackheaded cracker.” She also claims that she isn’t racist; she was just “pissed off.”
“I’m really not a racist, I was just pissed off. If he didn’t try to almost hit my kids, none of this would have happened,” she said.
“Quite frankly, if you look it up, [n-word] means an ignorant person,” she replied. “It has nothing to do with race. But it’s okay for him to call me a racist or honky. That’s racist.”

Ambrosia claims that she’s bi-polar and that her ex-husband is trying to use the video to gain custody of their children.
As for the man she verbally assaulted in the Dollar General parking lot, his goal was to shine the light on racism that many people try to pretend doesn’t exist in a “post-racial” society.
“Racism is alive and well, I tell you … amazing. Absolutely amazing,” he can be heard saying in the recording. “This is where we live at. This is exactly where we live and what goes on. I start my car, she calls me a n–ger. Amazing.”
A parody Twitter account, which many outlets are reporting as factual, has been created mocking Ambrosia.
