A white woman in Raleigh, N.C. called a black woman the n-word & said she would do it again because she felt “forced” into using the racial slur bc she thought the black woman was being too loud at a restaurant. Good night y’all. https://t.co/e8JOQUelLX via @WRAL (h/t @WRALLena)

“I am shocked because this person has the audacity to come to our table and tell us we are the rudest people that she has ever met,” Stewart says as she records Goodman who is standing near the bar and waving, gesturing and laughing. Goodman then takes out her own phone and walks toward the woman’s table with her phone up as to record them.
As she approaches the table she says, “I have some really good friends who are black and I love them,” she says with her phone recording.
“We never said anything about color,” one woman says as Goodman is heard saying her black friends would never “act like that,” apparently meaning being too loud. “You’re too loud.”
“In your opinion. Let me show you my money. It’s just as green as yours.”
Goodman says, “Why are you so stupid ‘n******?”
The three women who are stunned by the remarks then ask her; “Call your black friends n****r? You call your black friends n****r?”
Goodman shakes her head: “They’re not like you.”
Chanda Stewart Facebook Post
In her Facebook video caption, Stewart wrote:
“So this happened today. What was supposed to be dinner with my girlfriends ended up in us being called stupid n***r? The climate of the country today has some people thinking whatever they feel….they can say. The reality is if we were to retaliate with this same kind of hate and ignorance we would be called ‘angry black women.’
Mobile phone footage shows a woman called Nancy Goodman approaching the other customers including Lakesha Shaw and Chanda Stewart at a Bonefish Grill in North Hills, North Carolina to tell them to be quiet, before calling one of them a ‘stupid n*****’ in a shocking racial slur.
The footage has since generated thousands of shares and comments online.
Lakesha Shaw was the woman who Goodman had addressed the offensive word to, while her friend Chanda Stewart filmed the tirade on her mobile.
Nancy Goodman in an Interview Said she would use the Racial Slur Again
Goodman has since refused to apologize for the racist remark, adding she would do it again.
Goodman, 71, put her actions down to her ‘tremendous anxiety’ and said the group’s behavior had pushed her to breaking point.
However she refused to apologize to the group, telling WRAL-TV: ‘I’m not going to say I’m sorry to them because they kept pushing at it.’
When questioned on why she used the word ‘n*****’ she said it was because the group had ‘forced her into it’.
In a Facebook post shared with her friends, as reported by WRAL as her Facebook is set to private, Goodman wrote:
“Tonight on WRAL TV news there will be a news article about me using the N-word in conflict with three rude, loud, obnoxious black women. I would like to apologize to my family, friends and other patrons at the bar at North Hills Bonefish. The TV reporters came to my house today as they found out my name which that could only happen if the restaurant gave them my information. The women taped me and apparently shared the video all over social media. I suffer from extreme anxiety which is not an excuse. I am ashamed of my actions.”
Bonefish Grill Statement
Bonefish Grill Says it is ‘Reviewing the Incident’ as Many Are Outraged. According to WRAL, the restaurant is reviewing the incident: “We are reviewing the incident to see how we can do better at de-escalating something like this in the future.”
