“You’re not the right color, honey”, woman says before losing her job at Food Bank


COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA – A quarrel between neighbors ended up with a woman calling her black neighbor “not the right color” the “n-word”.

The scene unfolded in Colonial Heights as a white woman and a black woman argued. Then the white woman, who was standing on the black woman’s front lawn said, “You’re not the right color honey!”

Then she called the woman the n-word.

It turns out, the woman worked for the Chesterfield Food Bank, just south of Richmond. Foodbank CEO Kim Hill said she was shocked by the employee’s racist tirade that went viral.

“We want to thank everyone for reaching out to us in regards to the video and story that was posted this morning regarding a confrontation between an individual and one of our employees in their neighborhood,” Hill said. “We, here at the CFB, are broken-hearted to view this conduct as it goes directly against our values and beliefs. We are honored to serve everyone in need with dignity & integrity. In response to this situation, we have terminated this employee. We remain committed to creating and providing a positive, uplifting, and encouraging environment for our staff, volunteers, and clients.”
