A video has been doing the rounds regarding an alleged racist attack on a man in the Cape Quarter shopping centre.
In the video, two white men are standing at an ATM withdrawing cash. They are then asked by a black man behind them in the queue to “hurry up”. One of the men at the ATM responds by calling the man the k-word. The two start shouting at each other and the fight gets physical.
Jenna was witness to what happened, and says that the video doesn’t give full context. Her account as posted on YouTube below:
"I wish this video showed the full context. I was there. Not only were these 2 "men" racist before they started with the K word they were offensive to the women in the queue as well. The name calling went on for about 3-5 minutes before this guy actually got physical with him. This altercation and screaming started simply because we asked them to hurry up after waiting 6 minutes while they fumbled to draw money in their drunken state. Also post this the security guard helped this guy up and a few minutes later we watched him scream at the very same security guard saying he was useless and worthless and probably only earns R4000 per month."
