VIDEO SHOWS WHITE MAN'S RACIST RANT TOWARDS BLACK POSTAL EMPLOYEE IN DALLAS

BY ISOBEL VAN HAGEN ON 8/22/19 AT 4:21 PM EDT

An African-American U.S. postal worker in North Texas was verbally abused by a white man on Monday who called him the N-word because he didn't receive the form he wanted. There were audible gasps heard from bystanders as they stood in line shocked. They can also be heard trying to intervene, telling the man his behavior was not acceptable.

In a widely viewed video posted on Twitter on Wednesday, the white man yells at the customers that he doesn't care and tells them to "shove it!" He then turns back to the counter, and calls the employee a fool before launching into more profane insults, including racist slurs. He then leaves — the employee isn't seen in the video.

Kian Salem — an 18 year old college student — was at the post office on Trinity Mills Road and the Dallas North Tollway on Monday when suddenly a man's elevated voice caught his attention, according to Fox 4 News.

"I just had that gut feeling he was going to say something questionable," Salem said. "So I pulled out my phone. You never know these days." He also said customers were able to get the man's license plate number and give it to the employee.

2. Was he wearing a gun/holster?

That was one, weird strap intensive outfit, he was wearing, and it looked like a gun in a holster, hanging on his right side.

5. Sure looks like he's toting a gun

So much for mental background checks especially in Texas.

6. From a reply:

"This happened at the post office at Trinity Mills
and the Tollway in North Dallas. U.S. Postal Service
says it’s aware of the incident and has opened an investigation"
