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.

  • I'm trilingual and would love to rip this red neck trump supporter a new one.

  • Sad how the PC culture has made it literally illegal to openly dislike others. Big Brother is your friend until they decide your behavior is no longer suitable. Read Ordinary Men. Read 1984. Stop being partisan, hippy sheep who think the world is full of sunshine and everyone will get along. Read some God damned history and grow up.

  • She got arrested for that!!!!! That's b*******!!!! Once again here's another white lady calling the police on people just like barbecue Becky!!!!

  • If you're in America you should speak English if you want to speak Spanish do it in your own home or quietly in public!!! Because speaking Spanish loudly in public is very offencive, rude and disrespectful to the country your living in. And that lady should check those people for speaking Spanish in public have some respect!!!!

  • Good for HER, sticking up for the folks that were just speaking their native language. ✊😔 ✊😔

  • U go girl u best believe mexicans have ur back now n ur white defending a Hispanic n u go against ur own kind cause she was disrespectful we need more of u here on Earth

  • Why'd they Lady go to jail like she was defending people like wow

  • This happens in Canada often as well, targeting towards Chinese immigrants though LOL

  • she was actually charged? I'm surprised.

  • ...what's the matter can't make it in your own country and now you have to suck off the white man like a parasite.

  • My mom was adopted and raised by white people and I constantly have to remind her she's a Latina she is venezuelan and believes she is Italian because they don't speak Spanish and I myself am adopted from my mom's cousin who is venezuelan and Cuban so I take it to heart but then I remember she was raised by racist ass redknecks who convinced her she was Irish and Cherokee when sh is really an mesoamericana mixed with Latíná she is brown even she refuses to learn Spanish so I speak Spanish she refuses to learn or appreciate her cultures so I learned them and practice me amo Les vacaciones y Les jamares/Comidas El genté la musica no me importa si Ella no hace quiere a sé nada sobre Venezuela o Los Aztecas porque yo sé sobre mi genté

  • If u want to speak any language then live in the country that the language u speak is from what language u speak live in that country

  • This woman is a hero 😭👏🏼

  • That’s true

  • If you're gonna live here, LEARN AND SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OR GO HOME

  • Laddies and gentlemen.... We got her.

  • Honestly she’s definitely superwomen

  • some more virtue porn for leftists to twist and use against all trump supporters or anyone with right wing beliefs

  • THIS IS AMERICA!!! Y yo hablo español cuando ami se me de la gana!

  • Good job pretty ladie

  • This girl is my hero. Thank you.

  • Why cant everyone learn Spanish and english?? Let people speak what they want to speak!

  • This is America. Our native tongue is English. People should learn English if they wish to be Americans. If they don't want to learn English, then they don't want to be Americans. Do you think I could go to China and survive without learning Chinese? God bless America God bless President Trump Trump 2020 - See Clearly

  • Speak Spanish all you want. But you'll never get a decent job in the US.

  • "It was the right thing to do" THIS SHOULD BE AMERICA'S SLOGAN.

  • Wow that lady is awesome, AND beautiful.

  • Speak English!

  • Thx bring them to the public We will be praying for u. God bless We don't like crime. But we as a Christian country we follow Jesus footsteps we don't( cannot let the hate win ) let these things happen

  • My kind of wonther woman beuryfull 2

  • This woman is an inspiration! I bid thee an ode for thine kind heart and mighty spirit! She is a blessing and inspiration to this generation! We ought to all strike to be like her! ...I mean she's right. *We really do need to protect our country from these Mexican invaders*

  • Thank you for speaking up for the people in need. When there is a language barrier and lack of compassion, people really suffer and endure emotional hardships. More people need to take a stand against hate and ignorance. It’s dividing our great nation.

  • Good job kid

  • Come on at a certain point they do need to learn to speak English. I talk to people that have been in our country for years and dont speak 1 word of English it makes me sick. There is no way I would go to another country and be there for more then a year without being able to carry on a conversation

  • This popped up as an ad... now that’s definitely social engineering.

  • Yeah and than there’s Florida. Where English is optional. At least their was a time were immigrants learned the native tongue. Now we catered to them. It’s a joke. RIP America. Damn good run. Damn good.

  • She bad!

  • I love this lady 💯🇲🇽 !

  • I work in retail and half our staff is Spanish. One of my coworkers still says things like ppl should speak enlish here. She's the sweetest old lady but i was saddened when she said that. Good on this woman for standing, i will try too

  • Now that is a good heart 😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘

  • HEEELL YEAH!! Good guy trend coming at ya!!

  • We Need more people like her

  • First off, Over 60 percent of all English words have Greek or Latin roots. In the vocabulary of the sciences and technology, the figure rises to over 90 percent. Furthermore Susan, Spanish is a Latin based language (100℅ Latin). So in essence, were arguing the same thing. It's just not so apparent initially.

  • Flip her donald skin lookin like hair

  • I love it

  • She is kind and caring .

  • Didn’t English come from England? And people from England brought English to America? Then why would you tell people to speak English in America? America is full of different cultures , you don’t like well leave America and say good bye to you’re culture, I swear some people cane really! Stupid

  • Let’s go !!!!!Someone who actually cares

  • What a joke!!! This is America!!! Biased motivated harassment?! Wake up people!!! Put on your big boy, big girl pants & quit crying your feelings were hurt... what ever happened to sticks & stones?! I don't blame the "mean" woman.. English has always been the primary language of the USA.. not Spanish.. for all we know the "victims" were talking trash about the other woman... Go ahead & take jabs at me for being racist now, just because I won't conform to the over sympathetic way of society today.

  • Good girl

  • We live in a sick and twisted racist society, and I'd hate to be them when God has enough of this Satan's world. Revelation 12:9,12

  • She thought that she may have been on an episode of "What Would You Do?"

  • Good job

  • Sorry the lady that defended the Spanish speaking people should be the one who went to jail,thats exactly what's wrong with this country

  • When everything goes wrong "Call the police" Even tho it takes the an extra 20 mins to arrive

  • My Mexican friend helped me with Spanish classes and guess what i got an A, BRAVO for the good Mexican people 👏👏

  • Shes so beautiful inside and out

  • Wtf cares

  • Thank you for doing the right thing.

  • People that don’t speak other language but English should start learning others specially Spanish since is one of the top 5 world 🌎 wide specially in our continent Just saying

  • Too bad John Quiñones wasn't there to stop it.

  • U can get arrested cause youre racist?Cause of this?America sounds like totalitarian state.

  • I do believe people should learn the language of the country they're living in, to make it easier for themselves to get by. But they're talking among themselves, that's their own business. Also that women is just erratic and an embarrassment.

  • I’m so glad we have people like this we need more of this

  • This puta be crazy but the madam that stepped up is wat we all should be like

  • Good person

  • She is my hero.🙏 Thank you very much.

  • English is the official language of Colorado. It’s in the state constitution under Article II, Section 30a 😂 law.justia.com/constitution/colorado/cnart2.html

  • This is America. Not England!

    • This is America not mexico!

  • There goes our freedom of speech

  • Good for her

  • Estas pero bien pendejo😂😂😂😂

  • Bruh America doesn’t even have an official language lmao

  • amen . great . lovely be blessed

  • She was right speak English in America

    • Laxu Chettri deporting racist like is right

    • What about freedom of speech and the fact that the United States has no official language?

    • It’s sad u think that way

  • Freedom of speech

  • This lady needs a medal 👏👍

    • She deserves the shitlib medal. One who thinks she's doing something virtuous but doesn't realize the very people she's trying to protect will soon replace her and her family along with all cultural traditions.

  • "You will lose your country!" This country was never ours to begin with. Never forget that this land was stolen from the Native Americans, after we pillaged, raped and murdered them and STOLE their land. This country was built by immigrants and will continue to be built by immigrants. This woman reeks of ignorance and hatred. Hope she sees jail time.

  • That is what people get for being a racist

    • +ChumWaffle technically America belonged to the native Americans which did not speak English. English came from the pilgrims that came from England 😀

    • +ChumWaffle which is latin and greek

    • It's racist for wanting people to speak English in a society that has predominately spoken English for hundreds of years since its creation?

  • What is motivated harassment ? Who was motivated ? I didn’t see anyone practicing

  • Lock the racist up, America has already been Great before a group of people stole the land from its original owners.

  • Interesting ...... but stupid. (rowan and martin's laugh in) The debate should be about freedom of expression, not language or cultures or acts of 'humanitarianism'. All the involved have violated basic socially acceptable norms, and the question remains: which is the instigator for the conversation, the cause or the effect? Can you say 'divisive'?

  • She's invited to the Carne Asada :) 👌🏽

  • 1 months in a Mexico jail than she gets escorted back that’s it and a trail in between to see progress than back to that jail

  • Yes mem, I have the same problem at school when I speak my native language which is Arabic, thanks for speaking up✌️🙏

  • Fun fact: the most spoken language in the world isn't English, it's Mandarin ^u^

    • Fun fact: We don't live in eastern Asia. This country has been a predominately English speaking country since it's creation hundreds of years ago.

  • Fake

  • She’s invited to the carnesada

  • Its America "the land of the free" i dont care if your white, black, latino, etc we should all respect each other

    • Finally!!!!!! First smart comment I've seen so far

  • Serves her right!

  • 💯💯💯💯🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽

  • Learn to speak English your here learn our language

    • Nah they wont

    • Before you come here you need to learn some English. Not racist s just American

    • troy Stokes and you need to get over being a racist

    • Your right in this country you learn to speak English, you should not forget your native language

    • America has no official language

  • This country was built by immigrants. There's nothing white about this country. Never has been. The ignorance of this woman. Wow.
