Many protests turned violent...

But change needs to happen and, at the moment, this seems like the only way to make it happen.

Remarkably, however, they seem to be working.

And people are continuing to demand justice.

However, not everyone has been so supportive of the movement.

Amongst the stories of positivity from the protests, there have been some tales with a slightly more sour undertone.

Blatant racism is still happening across our country...

And countless stories of black people being targeted are continuing to emerge.

The most recent story is a horrifying one...

It all happened last week in California.

Harold Brown, a black Atascadero store manager, posted a video of a customer yelling racial slurs at him...

And it was all over the customer not wearing a face mask.

The video shows the man circling the van of his clearly labeled cleaning business...

And when Harold accuses the customer of calling him the N-word, the man begins shouting, "So what?! You're stupid I want my cash back!"

Harold calmly asked the angry customer why he used the N-word...

And he responds with, "Because you ain't got a resuit for service!" Disgraceful.

The reason the man was exploding with rage was because the store didn't carry cash...

via: Harold Brown

And this is not at all a reason to be rude to staff members... never mind being racist towards them!

Harold said the company couldn't give cash returns until they received a cash payment on that particular day...

And obviously, because of the pandemic, people haven't been carrying as much cash. Harold explained to the customer he also needed a mask, which is what ultimately resulted in the racist meltdown.

Harold read out the man's business details that were labeled on his van...

And this is when the customer began demanding that Harold "go get him some water." Unbelievable!

The arrogance and disrespect displayed by this man is outrageous...

via: Harold Brown

And Harold admitted that this sadly isn't the first time he's experienced racism.

It says a lot that Harold is no longer triggered by racism...

"I’m not surprised by it," he said, "I’m honestly not even affected by it anymore. But, especially in the time that we’re in right now, it’s just shocking to me that people still go out of their way to implicate themselves when the nation is falling apart for that very reason."

And after the video was posted to social media...

The racist customer was quickly identified as Greg Baxter. "He’s upset because he was told to wear a mask in a private establishment. He thought it would be ok to go on a racist rant because he wasn’t getting his way. You should give him a call or leave a review for his business on Yelp," an Instagram page wrote.

Of course, people have been left feeling disgusted by Greg's behavior...

And one Instagram user even described him as "an embarrassment to his community."

Even though many people in the community are against racism, there are still the select few who hold this appalling attitude.

"Growing up here as a kid, I had a lot of racist experiences and didn’t realize what was happening, but coming back as an adult, ever since I’ve been back, racist interactions have happened to me at least 2 to 3 times a week in Atascadero," Harold went on to say.

Let's hope that Greg will face the consequences of his actions very soon...

And we hope that Harold is feeling okay after this terrible encounter.
