SOMERVILLE, NJ – It all started in the meat aisle at the Somerville, New Jersey Shop Rite. That’s when Sakiah Jones was confronted by an elderly woman. Moments earlier, the elderly woman, who was walking slowly in front of Jones. Jones decided to just walk around her, because who has all day to wait. We’ve all been through it in the grocery store. People walking slow, blocking aisles, it happens. Like Jones, we try to get past and go on with our day and apparently, that’s what she did.
Until the woman caught up with Jones picking out meat for her family for dinner.
Jones claims the elderly woman, upset with the previous encounter, which was not caught on video, said, “Maybe if you get off the f-cking phone you can pick your meat n-n-gger.”
Jones said she held her anger in and politely told the woman to leave her alone and go around…she even offered to move her shopping cart to accommodate the woman, she said.
“She continued to call me all types of names…. telling me since I touched all the meats I have to buy them,” Jones said. “I was very respectful at first, cause I wouldn’t want anyone disrespecting my grandmother…. but she just continued on and on….. till I snapped and cussed her ass out!”
First, since when is the unspoken rule of the supermarket, if you touch it, you buy it? I’m sure even Larry David wouldn’t agree with that one.
A few people in the area came to the defense of racist grandma, according to Jones. Visibly upset, Jones was now confronted by other shoppers and store employees. That’s when bearded middle-aged white guy popped into the picture, screaming at Jones, “You better have 10 motherf-ckers like you.”
“I’ll rip your ass in half,” he screamed.
The woman’s daughter ran at Jones screaming, “You stupid b-tch, who do you think you are you f-cking n-gger.”
As of now, neither police nor the Shop Rite has released any further information regarding this incident which has gone viral nationwide this morning.
