Woman Defends 2 Spanish Speakers Harassed at Colorado Supermarket

Published on Oct 5, 2018
Two women speaking Spanish in the aisle of a Colorado supermarket were harassed by a shopper who demanded they use English, according to Kamira Trent, who intervened in a confrontation captured on cellphone video. Trent followed the woman down the aisle and called police. "It was the right thing to do. It's the way I was raised. When you see something like that happen, you don't just stay there and let it happen," she said.

  • Stop worrying about other people and what language they speak! I don’t understand why that would be any concern of yours!! Go to the damn grocery store buy what you need and leave! Your giving white people a bad name!! And no she’s in a different generation thank you! Your old, ugly, outdated, broke down, Jim Crow, kkk, lynching, racist, stupid booty generation was dumb then and is dumb now! I don’t respect people like you!

  • This video would win 6 Emmy awards.

  • This lady is a kick ass person her parent's brought her up right love you lady rock on

  • Speak English here in America

  • English is synonymous as the most racist language on planet earth! So people speak their language, and then the fact of the matter is Obvious !

  • Respect to her for Standing up

  • Did you hear the idiot say “Your going to lose your country”? Idiot. What she meant is “things will be different than in my lifetime” Yep. That THAT, is what the Founding Fathers WANTED EXACTLY! Get with that program, or, shut it at least. God Bless America, a place I can find all cultures at my fingertips while having the freedom to enjoy my own culture. How completely boring otherwise. Oh, and our public schools should start requiring at least 4 years of another language....it’s far past the time when we need to meet people at A table not OUR table....

  • They want to live here, speak English.

  • Go live in Spain then

  • I wish everyone would think that way, thank you, gracias...

  • America is dead.

  • Beautiful soul. Thank you for being so kind.

  • Thanks

  • We speak english in America.

  • I’m Mexican and I find this very horrible

  • I love this white girl She so beautiful. She is my heroe 💪💪😍😍

  • I speak American

  • Just seeing this is very not happy to me I’m from hunduras and I speak Spanish and English if somebody does that to me I smack the with my shoe and i’d bring a shovel and smack her to death

  • I can care less about people speaking different languages. What gets me mad is when Americans can not speak English properly. Or use the wrong words in sentences.

    • Avalon Park yeah that is true

  • As a hispanic like me I feel attacked

  • Why have I been in this situation before

  • What is so wrong with people speaking more than one language most people I know pride themselves on knowing two or three different languges...

    • Mad Hatman that's actually a good thing means you can learn more than others

  • Knowledge is Power... The more languages we speak the more amazing life is when we communicate with other people in their own languages... I'd rather be the smart guy that switches between many different languages on the fly and speak to everyone and know what everyone is saying ... Once you learn a 3rd language the 4th and so on become easier to learn because your brain learns them faster and easier... Knowledge is Power... Having an open mind is the best asset one can have in life.... Recognize Adapt Evolve... Nothing will ever stay the same...

  • She’s such a Coño And Perrà

  • Dont speak english, no need to be in my country

  • Being Latino makes you an invader. You have no right to be here and at this rate the Mexican American war will commence again. A clipped video by Inside Edition does not deter from this fact. It is time white women control their ovaries and protect their own over invaders😘🍺

  • Hhmm A lot of comments below cite the "freedom of speech" in the USA... WTF? That has nothing to do with the language you choose to speak. It's about you can say whatever you want, mostly...

  • That lady doesn’t know how good they cook 👩‍🍳

  • She’s invited to the cookout

  • See, this is the reason why america will be a land of trash. We live in america, not Mexico. If you go to asia they speak their native language. Come to america learn english

    • America has no official language... When you americans travel to another country, you assume everybody will speak english. Why is that?

  • Nothing better to do? Seriously...move on.

  • U don't have to speak English but u need 2

  • I would laugh and say pendja gringa

  • [Woman yelling] “This woman is VERY upset!” Yeah I figured

  • Pinche vieja rasista cuando te estés comiendo un taco de carne asada o un burrito t lo voy arrancar d la boca

  • That lady should have minded her own business no one is talking to you

  • To be fair this is America learn English or dont bother coming here.

  • Idiotic white lady doesn’t know the name Colorado is Spanish

  • Dame what a legend

  • When bill o'reilly was on Inside Edition, he probably would side with the bigot.

  • Here's your fifteen Your fifteen minutes of fame

  • Los europeos llegaron a América y se apoderaron de tierras que no les correspondían matando a mucha gente inocente en América solo existía un idioma antes de que ellos llegarán

  • glad trump hasnt brainwashed everyone yet

  • What she did was the right thing to do defending those woman.After all they were just having a private conversation in a different language.However it doesn't hurt when you come from another country to learn the English language. It's not mandatory but you do much better in America if people can understand what you especially in a workplace or in the supermarket.Let's say you need help at the meat department.lt's not a bad idea that you can actually communicate with the employee behind the counter.

  • The U.S nation of immigrants FYI Spainsh is spoken by other Latin American Countries to not just Mexican people speak it.

  • If you live in a country, you should speak its language. But verbally abusing people for speaking another language is not right. Many of the first settlers didn't speak English. Mine would have arrived speaking English, Dutch and German.

  • Shame, shame, shame of her!! As a white American I feel embarrassing! I speak more than a three languages. This is a free country!

  • MeriKKKa why can't white people let go of racism we all have

  • I speak spanish all the time' I guess it's easier to pick on woman than on big guy like me

  • Admirable woman. She is right! We should all stand for what is right Thank you, I’m Latina.

  • This smells more like click bait then fact.

  • English does matter, and so does every other language there is

  • US immigration system is a total joke if these people cant speak read and wright at a 6'th grade level. what a failure our country is becoming. my friend had to learn German at an 8th grade level in reading writing and speaking before he could become a citizen.

    • I will translate what you just wrote into english: "US immigration system is a total joke if these people can't speak, read or write english at a 6th grade level. Our country is becoming a failure... I have a friend who had to learn the German language at an 8th grade level in reading, writing and speaking before he could become a German citizen" Maybe you can speak and read, but certainly you can't write in english...

  • I swear to god everyone in this comment section is either really racist or MAJOR trump supporters. I personally thing he's a 'meh' type of guy. I find some things he says true but the wall is something i don't like.

  • When in Rome, do as the Romans.

  • speak English plain and simple.......

  • Any Russians? μ

  • Fake news

  • And I assume every stupid American that makes comments like "speak English, you're in America", when they visit another country, they speak that language as well..........idiots......

    • They don't... They expect everybody else to speak english as well...

  • Both English and Spanish belong to European languages. The woman need to learn her history. What if the Spaniards colonized USA like they did to central America? We would all speak Spanish.

  • English is the NATIONAL LANGUAGE dumbasses

  • I thought I was watching an episode of “What Would you Do?”

  • Teddy Roosevelt said it best when he said if you've been here for five years and can't speak english... GO HOME! Translated: ir CASA perro!

  • *Wall intensifies*

  • Why does she look like a robot on camera

  • Go back to mexico and speak spanish there

    • Yeah, because Mexico is the only country where people speak Spanish... Oh wait... Why do we even call it Spanish? It should be "Mexican language"...

    • Your wrong my firend μ

    • +Noah Mendez Spanish isint mexican culture you retard

    • Go get a life and stop worrying about other people speaking a different language 😂 the only reason you should care is if you were trying to creep on the conversation with your weird ass. Other then that, maybe you should mind your business and let Mexican express their culture in the land of the FREE!!! If you don't like a free country built on immigration, maybe you should go back where your ancestors emigranted from ;)

  • She had enough

  • Did that drug addict just say we'll loose the country? Listen junkie we already did being run by skull & bones for 200 years.

  • Truth USA is the country not just English language also Spanish French, German, Chinese, and more so mine your own business offending lady. If it’s only English why is the country named United States? UNITED PEOPLE Show respect their equal

  • Wow i did not know you could go to jail for that. Lel.

  • Write or wrong no one should have been arrested for speaking their mind. I can say what ever I want to whom I want. So can yall.

    • Not if your harassing someone for no reason, she got what she deserved. Hope it was worth it

  • However no room for disrespect to anyone !Red,Yellow,Brown , Black or White ! All equal in GODS sight !

    • Yes! Your right my firend μ

  • see something say something

  • that's when I hit her with a burrito

  • We need more people like this 30 year old.

  • Build the wall. Build it fast.

    • Most immigrants come by plane anyway... It'd be wiser to build a wall around every airport and not an useless propaganda wall along (some parts) of the border...

    • Climb that wall, dig up fast

  • Women like you will help change the world. Thank you

  • I’m all for for legal immigration and the requirement of learning English because it Assimilates the individual and makes them bilingual. But once you’ve met your requirements and gained citizenship it’s a free country you can speak whatever language you want. Can’t stand prejudice like this.

  • Can someone slap that lady for me

  • On the other hand if it bothers someone to the pointbof yelling about it. Need to look in the mirror.but seriously people .young and old. Learning English will only help you and some of these barriors

  • Its people like her that make this world worth living in 😁

  • The American people have to stop travel around the world Don't go machupichu- Peru Spanish Don't go Cancun - Mexico - Spanish. Don't go Rio de Janeiro- Brasil Portuguese. Don't go Barcelona -Spain Castellano- Catalan Don't go paris -france French Dont go Milano -italy Italalian Social paranoiac - don't go !

  • she has a good heart for others. I love people like her.

  • I vote for you. I am an immigrant and my family is white. I salute you!

  • Plenty of people in America speak Spanish

    • and that means what

    • And that is part of the problem. If they want to become American, they need to learn to speak English.

  • Spanish is a White European language

  • My respects for her. God bless her

  • We'd all be speaking German if it wasn't for our anscestors.

  • Good for her...…..I had to do the same twice here. This is a free country and built by people from all over the world.

  • yeah spanish speakers in this country need to be english speakers even obama said so plenty video of him talking about strengthening our borders, putting americans first etc etc it only became bad when Trump said those things even mexicans dont like mexico

    • It's because Trump is encouraging people to be rude about it and use him as an excuse for their racism

  • This 2 girls in my class speak Spanish but 1 of them can speak English

  • Standing up for people is true justice

  • It's a free country. They can speak however they want to.

  • Can’t speak English but, can smuggle drugs 👌🏻

    • Maybe you can speak english, but can you smuggle drugs?

    • Noah Mendez look up drug convictions per cap, rape, murder and gang crime. Facts don’t care about your feelings.

    • Case close you're a arrogant, a troll and completely oblivious to everyday peoples situations.
