Forum Holds Frank Discussion on Hate Targeting Vulnerable Latinos

It happened at a taco stand in Watts, where an African American woman instigated a violent attack against a street vendor. Before fleeing the scene in a pink Lexus sedan, she hurled profanity, threw a street sign and physically assaulted the vendor for allegedly refusing to serve her, because the woman had reportedly taken tacos from the stand on multiple occasions without paying. 

Fortunately, the incident was captured on video, which eventually made its way to the Facebook account of activist and street vendor advocate Edin Alex Enamorado, who shared the video with his 11,000 followers. As a result, the woman was identified and ended up being charged with battery and other charges, and was ultimately fired by her employer.
