I hope this white guy who admits to being a racist gets identified and faces consequences.

A few young adolescent boys skate boarding and middle-aged white guy calls one kid a "Mexican piece of ____." A couple of boys try to reason with him as another young man tries to deescalate the situation and just leave. I'm really sick of assholes ruining this country.

1. He's been identified.

He's an architect. I don't have a link, but I was reading it this morning. His business is getting hammered on Yelp.

2. Good. White-collar professionals think they can get away with this crap.

It has to stop.

3. That's some awful, racist stuff. From the *HUFF PO article in the OP:

.."A man was filmed yelling a racist insult at teens skateboarding in a corporate parking lot in San Pedro, California, on June 28. Local station KTTV points out there are lots of “no skateboarding” signs in the lot, but in the video, one of the boys says they skate there every Wednesday. The man in the video starts yelling at the kids and claiming he has the “authority” to “do a police arrest” because they’re trespassing.

Things get uglier. The man claims he’s the architect of the place where the teens are skating..“You Mexican piece of shit,” the man can be heard saying. Some of the kids rightfully note that the man’s comment is racist, and the man doesn’t deny it. “I’m a racist, at least I’m something!” The man yells. “All you are is a little coward!” The boy apparently wasn’t a coward, replying, “And you’re just a piece of shit!” You can watch the complete encounter below:"

I just slapped the clip up there. Thanks for taking the time to give the story it's due.
