‘Using my white privilege for the right reasons’: Florida Woman Beats A Racist

Race and Ethnicity, Racism and Hate Groups

A Florida woman was caught on video cursing and beating another female in a hotel lobby after the victim reportedly made a racist comment about Haitians. She says she was using her “white privilege” to stand up for minorities.

The viral video, which was posted to Facebook by a user named Austin, showed Colleen Dagg launching herself at the woman and punching her to the ground while cursing her, reported Raw story.

According to Austin, “Ok so lady in the blue sundress said something super racist about how ‘you know these Haitians’ and sis in the gray was not having it. She then lied to the police and said the other girl started it, when everything was caught on video.”

Police were called to the hotel after the brawl.

Dagg used her Twitter account to give her side of the story after the video went viral.

“This is a young country built on racism,” Dagg wrote. “Black people have been disenfranchised for over 250 years. The faster white people accept and validate the truth, the closer we’ll come to a place of peace and understanding.

“Fighting racism is dependent on me using my white privilege for the right reasons,” she added.

“The white woman tried to use her white privilege on me, the fact that I am white too seemed to have slipped her mind,” she wrote, adding, “If you see it, say something.”
