  1. First off, as a Caucasian woman, myself, I would like to apologize for her comments to you and you children. No one has the right to tell your or anyone else children “shut the fuck up” or go back to were you came from. We are all Canadians and have the same rights. I hope she gets charged with hate crimes as there was no reason for this behavior, other then she wants to make herself feel big.

    • Don’t apologize for being Caucasian. What we need to do is STOP racism. It doesn’t matter if we are Caucasian or of other cultures. I am disgusted that anyone else witnessing this didn’t step up for this woman, and her two children. There is no reason anyone of any culture, race or religion should be treated like this. The woman who acted like this should be charged with a hate crime. I’m so sorry to the poster and your sweet little ones that you needed to endure that sort of profanity. Hold your head high. Don’t keep it in your heart. She will need to answer some day for the hatred in her heart. Don’t let it turn you into a negative person.

    • ‘White’ people aren’t the problem here. Terrible people are. Terrible people come from all walks of life and feel it’s ok to treat anyone that they deem less human than themselves somehow deserve mistreatment. HATE is unacceptable. And I feel so badly for this woman and her babies as well as countless others being mistreated daily!

      So sad that a person treats anyone like this. That lady was completely out of order. I feel for the mom and two beautiful children . Total abuse and ignorance.

    • SUE says:

      i agree we need to end this violence and i would have stepped in imediately when she was assaulted and stood between her children and this maniac and if need be i would have taken her down AND HLD HER UNDER CITIZENS ARREST TILL POLICE AARIVED

      [9]
    • Nichole Saskiw …no way should some one take up for her but I certainly would stand between her and that idiot. If you take up for her that bitch would start punching and then the kids would be horrified. Nope, stand by her and call the cops. Like our neighbours, Ignorance abounds in this country as well.

      [5]
    • Terrible thing to happen. Please dont blame all caucasians for the same offense. I was born french Canadian. People say I have white privilege. Im still not sure what it means. I would never ever call someones child names or scream at them and say this blasphemy to anyone. Skin color means nothing at all. We are all Canadians and have the rights priviledges and responsibilities of this great Nation. This woman is a sick minded individual and should be charged and sent to jail for threats and hate speech. Morality is not based in color, its how you are raised. You raise your kids to love and not hate, to pray. Just as your lil girl said, pray for her, pray for our Nation because its broken. We all need to find peace and unity.

    • Sam Vincent …I believe this is what we are talking about..People that comment like you just did. Seriously? you just showed a side of you to all who read it.

      What the fuck you apologizing for? You didnt say shit, if anything everyone is racist towards us whites anyway.

  2. Steven Owen Steven Owen says:

    There is so much racism towards First Nations, especially here in Alberta. I have very long hair, and will often wear it in a braid down my back. On a few occasions, I have noticed Loss Prevention Officers at Walmart and such following me around, simply because they saw my braid from behind.. even though I am the whitest guy ever. It’s quite clear to me why they assumed I would be shoplifting.

    Kudos to you for protecting your little ones and not being baited into a confrontation like the woman seemed to want. Had I been there, I would have stood up to her with you. Stay strong!

    [90]
  3. Lynne Gladue says:

    You did the right thing by calling the police and by sharing your story. I will pray for you and your children that you receive love and support for your trama. That woman is disgusting and probably has a shitty life.

  4. Amber Morin Amber Morin says:

    That’s awful, and i literally have tears running down my face, as a mother, as a woman.

    My apologies will mean nothing to you, as this isn’t something anyone can make any better.

    YOU, my dear, are a strong woman and mother. To not retaliate, not many could be so strong.
    Teach your girls ignorance, and it’s many shades. They will be beautiful
    Women because of you.
    Lead them. Guide them. Forgive this absurd woman… For yourself. Because you ARE better than that.

    [45]
    • Jay Lowen says:

      “This isn’t something anyone can make better” and “You, my dear, are so strong for … [not retaliating]” and “forgive this abusrd woman”. Holy shit there are so many things wrong with your response, Amber, I don’t know where to begin. Basically you’re saying violent racists and white supremacists should be tolerated and forgiven and the targets of their abuse are to be commended for passively accepting it? Fuck that and fuck your ignorance and tacit consent. You are part of the problem with your patronizing bullshit.

      [2]
  5. Call police and charge her. Show media from cameras who she is. I’m sure that would make her an embarrassment to herself family friends etc

    [42]
  6. Marilyn shirt says:

    If you take to court for assault I would like to help

    [39]
  7. Also I admire your restraint for not beating the fuck out of her for yelling in your daughter’s face. Someone even got that CLOSE to my daughter and I’d probably be propping them against the wall giving them what for.. good on you for being calm.

    [37]
    • Bea says:

      Omg thats my thoughts exactly. I wouldn’t have that much control to not knock her the f out….

      [1]
  8. Erika says:

    I’m so sorry you and your girls had to live this. I wish I was there so I could have helped you by calling her out for you and getting in between her and your babies. Her behaviour was unacceptable and I apologize that no one stood up for you.

    [28]
  9. And the worst part, is if this racist woman has kids, she will instill her hatred onto her kids, furthering the hatred.
    I grew up in Northern BC, my dad like to frequent all the small rodeos all over, most were on reserves, and many times there were very few white people. I grew up with these people as friends, as equal to me, I have so many memories of being treated like gold from these people. And to this day, it expanded to my kids, that everyone, regardless of race, culture, religion, sexuality are equal.
    I hope the poster gets this behind her and realizes from the comments here, that most of us are good, tolerant people, and it only takes 1 in a 1000 to be a fucking asshole to someone who doesn’t deserve it.

    [26]
  10. I hope she got charged, because there are charges for this

    [23]
  11. I saw this yesterday. Omg, those poor people. That woman needs to be charged. If she did that to my half black daughter, that psychos safety would be in jeopardy and I’m a pacifist.

    [22]
  12. Aja Novic Aja Novic says:

    Should have shoved her face into one of those dirty toilets. Man anybody brave enough to come to my sons face and say anything bad is getting drop kicked regardless of the consequences

    [22]
    • How does resorting to violence solve or mitigate this issue ? This woman did the best thing that she could do , she maintained her dignity and attended to her children . The individual who caused this obviously has some issues that she needs to deal with . Perhaps she was also a ” victim” herself at one time . In any case violence never solves anything , it only causes more severe heartache etc. to deal with . Check yourselves people and be careful not to become what you profess to detest . Blessings <3

      [8]
    • But then she gets charged? Then what! She handled it the best she could. But I know what you mean.

      [4]
    • Caroline says:

      I disagree it would further traumatize the children plus would show them that violence is the way to solve problems.
      No I think this mother did the right thing by keeping her cool!
      The woman was a big build and could have pulled out a weapon one never knows when dealing with crazy people!
      This mom was brave and protected her children and possibly herself from more serious harm.
      I know it would be tempting to retaliate but the safety of children comes first before our carnal nature, at least it should.

      [2]
    • Yup Damn rights I’d do the same to her!

      [1]
    • Ever in ur life come up 2 my kids and talk that garbage id break her fucking jaw so she cant talk again. Ill go 2 jail she handled it so well. Letz be clear…unless you live on a farm deal with people of all colors and cultures. She handled it well

    • Then it wouldn’t look good for her even though I’m sure she wanted to

      [0]
    • Cynthia L. Fehr You need to stop with the no violence crap. Violence in these specific cases does help ( when there are no children present or when kids are big enough to understand the problem). Its convenient for white people to always say to victims that they should just stand back and do nothing. Keep being a victim. Maybe if the woman were a little scared she, might not have even dared to do that. She could even argue self defence as this women actually assulted her children

  13. You’re asking questions that no one except that sorry excuse for a human and her much-needed therapist will have answers to.

    She’s obviously not right in the head, and she’s the type that will have issues with anyone who is different than her, regardless of race or culture. I’m sorry you experienced this because it is incredibly unfair, uncalled for, and wrong. Please try not to take it personally, and tell your girls that while unstable people like this exist, they are not the norm, and do not represent the majority of the population. No one with any sense of decency or morality will act like this toward anyone. I hope between your description and WEM security that they can track this creature down. She does not deserve to be out in public with humans.

    [20]
    • Jay Lowen says:

      The prairie provinces are full of rabid racists and white supremacists. They are especially hateful and violent towards Indigenous peoples. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are overrun with gross hillbillies like this woman in the mall. Don’t try and whitewash it by calling them “mentally ill”. This kind of violence and hatred is common among gross white settlers. Its spread like a disease from family member to family member, hillbilly to hillbilly.

      [15]
    • Unfortunately I think this hateful woman is not only racist in general but is especially racist against Indigenous people. Her hurtful comments were very specifically directed at Indigenous people the way (sadly) many do. Some people think they’re superior to everyone else who looks different than they do. Combine that with a hateful need to insult and berate and it’s very ugly.

      [14]
    • Please don’t attribute this woman’s actions to mental illness. It’s insulting to individuals with mental illness. Maybe she does have a mental illness but there’s nothing to indicate that. She’s definitely an uneducated racist b**** though.

  14. Trixie Vanderslütte says:

    I’m so incredibly sorry that anyone did this to you and your children! It is completely and utterly disgusting that anyone holds these views or behaves this way. None of you deserved this and I’m so, so, so, happy to hear you saying that you know that and are repeating it without wavering. Too often, others’ words manage to plant little seeds. I hope beyond hope that when your kids reflect on this moment as they heal, they hear your voice above hers. If you read this, please tell your kids this for me: You are beautiful and special and valuable and loved. You deserve respect and happiness and what that lady did is wrong. People like that are why those of us who know bettermust keep spreading love. Our voices and our hearts need to be louder than hers! When you grow up, be powerful like your Mom because she knows what love is!!

    [19]
  15. I wish I would have been there, I would have told her exactly who was dirty, and who’s heart was ugly, and who needed to shut up. I would have stood by you and your babies. That is 100% unacceptable and disgusting. Charge her! She needs to learn a lesson. My heart hurts for what you and your girls went through.

    [17]
  16. Julie Cooper Julie Cooper says:

    This is so outrageous – is she mentally ill? I wasn’t there and being caucasian, I have no idea the road you walk daily – its just so awful that anyone would say such terrible things to an adult let alone children and still be considered mentally stable. I’m sorry for you but want to weep for your children. What a horrible thing for them to experience

    [12]
  17. I feel bad for you , and believe me, I had also experience racism because of my Spanish accent. It’s no your fault, this person mind is too small that she can’t see the beauty of diversity. Be proud of you, be proud of your race, and explain to your children that there is still nice people in this world !

    [11]
  18. Tannis Fong Tannis Fong says:

    You and your children are beautiful. Thank you for your strength and in standing up to her in the best way possible. I am so sorry there are people like that out there. I wish you peace and happiness. I am proud of you for being a strong example for your children.

  19. Levi Crane Levi Crane says:

    And some don’t believe that racism exist well lookey right here it is plastered all over the web right here in our beloved Canada. But it still exist right to the bone here to verbally threaten an assault a 3yr old child and her single mother wow how very disgusting.

  22. It takes a brave person to berate a little child, nothing but a frustrated Canadian housewife. Clearly she has problems but she should not take that out on innocent people especially children. Please don’t let the actions of this moron affect you and your children’s perspective of Edmontonians. Give your little girl a huge hug from this grandpa and tell her there are more kind people in the world than this angry frustrated racist.

  23. Brian Booth Brian Booth says:

    I’m going to withhold from saying what I really want to say here but instead of raging about some people thinking they’re entitled to make other people feel like shit because they’re unhappy with themselves I just want to say I’m sorry that has happened to you and I hope you have a much better day

    [7]
  24. Laura Hanna Laura Hanna says:

    I’m a white female and Just want you to know that if I was there alone or with my babies I would have got in her face and screamed and stuck up for you! Nobody on this earth deserves to be talked to like that, this woman should crawl under a rock! I would be horrified to witness such disgusting behaviour from a grown ass uneducated ignorant piece of flesh! Hope she gets what she deserves hope you and your babies were able to enjoy the movie and I hope they aren’t traumatized

    [7]
    • That’s Right, dumb twit would have found herself shoving her words down her throat had people stood up to her. I get why she didn’t as it would have been turned on her, but had others showed their disapproval she would have run with her tail between her legs… People stand by and they think no one disagrees with them, so they continue to attack. Start standing up to bullies people!

      [8]
    • Me too.. unacceptable!

      Yep. Would have pulled my phone and tried to get that face on camera. Expose the bullies!

  25. I am so sorry that you had to experience this & I wish that I could do something to make up for what this person did. I can promise you that if I see something like this happen that I will not stay silent & watch, I will do everything in my power to help stand up to such bs & abuse & I encourage others to do so as well.

  33. Hayley Jay Hayley Jay says:

    I’m very sorry for the horrible racism that you and your girls experienced. You are beautiful.

    [5]
  34. I’m so sorry this happened. You and your wonderful children did not deserve that at all. I wish I had an answer as to why people like that exist and feel it’s okay to treat others that way. This lady must have such a horrible life to have such anger. I’m so sorry and I hope you can recover from this. I know you can, don’t let her bring you down. We are on your side.

    [5]
  35. This breaks my heart, but I hope you are gaining hope from the kind words of strangers here. On behalf of all humanity I wish I could take your disappointment and fear away, but all I can say is I’m sorry your family went through this. Stand strong momma!

    [5]
  36. I am sorry this happened to you and your children. Sadly there will always be racists. Obviously, she had a lot of hate in her. I am also proud of our culture. Can you imagine living with so much hatred in your heart? I have love in mine and I am sure you do too. You cannot argue with stupid. I am proud of you for not stooping to her level. Violence + Violence = Nobody wins.

    [5]
  37. OMG as a white woman I am in shock and feel sick for you and your children. No one should be talked to like this let alone a child I hope karma gets this woman. I hope you and your children are doing better and don’t think we’re all like that. Keep your chin up and hope you all get through this

    [5]
  38. Wow, so sorry this happened to you. Some people have absolutely no class or compassion. Sadly, our media breeds this and exploits it to the max where people think that others are out to get them. Report this to the police and see if they can do anything or get footage from the WEM cameras. Something like this can ruin your day, no doubt. Don’t let it, just keep your chin up and teach your kids that this is a type of person they don’t want to become.

    [4]
  39. wow that is absolutely disgusting! I hope this psycho goes to jail.
    obviously she is very unhappy with her own life. still no excuse for any of that. when will people learn to stop the hate.

    [4]
  40. That’s horrible! I’m so sorry that you had to go through this. I hope this woman gets what she deserves. What the heck! Seriously, some people let me tell ya.

    [4]
  41. Terrible thing to hear. I’m sorry for you and your girls. You are more of a woman then she will ever be. Nobody’s life and existence is above another’s. Distugusting. Know you are beautiful and strong. And don’t let one bitch ruin your future outings with your family.

  42. Jen Fletcher Jen Fletcher says:

    My heart breaks for you and your little ones. We need love not Hate. We are all human and I cry for you and your babies. All I can offer is my words and some cyber hugs to say I am sorry for some person who has a lack of manners herself( trying to be nice) Hate needs to stop.

    [4]
  43. Wow!! What a POS that woman is. But your daughter has a point, pray for her because obviously she has problems and needs help. This may be the time she gets it through punishment for her actions. I feel for you and your children. In our day and age, racism does not belong in our world. I pray you and your children find peace.

    And this is why us white people have no right being insulted by the word cracker…

    So bloody embarrassing that people still do this kind of garbage. She needs a therapist.

    [4]
    • Jay Lowen says:

      She doesn’t need a therapist. She needs her ass kicked.

      These people aren’t capable of being rehabilitated; they’re sociopaths. Sociopaths can’t be counselled or otherwise fixed. Their brains are just fucked up.

      [1]
  45. I put the blame on her parents. They did not raise this lady properly. We should be raising our children to be patient, Compassionate and color blind. Sure we might not all have the same view and opinions but to put down someone kids is the lowest of the low. I hope you can charge her for a hate crime or something.

    [4]
  46. She must have been an American tourist… and if she was Canadian she should move because she would fit in better there

  47. Mac Simm Mac Simm says:

    Just looked at your picture. You and your children are beautiful. Your outfits are amazing.

    A kids movie, the little ones are excited. It can be a bit chaotic and noisy. Thats to be expected.

    Please don’t let one hateful, angry vile person take up your time and thoughts.

    She’s clearly got huge anger issues and is striking out at anyone who crosses her path. What you mentioned in your post sounds like the woman is totally toxic.

    She wants the attention drawn to you and your girls. She can’t see the problem lies with and stems from her. And thats pretty sad and pathetic.

    You and your children are beautiful. You need to remember this.

  48. Jill Turner Jill Turner says:

    You momma, are raising those babies right and their words “pray for her mommy” says that in itself! There will always be ignorant people unfortunately all we can do is hope we can avoid their paths and as your baby girls said pray for them. Hold your head high and proud momma, you are amazing!!!

  49. Josh Neary Josh Neary says:

    Some people suck. . . Like a lot, sorry to hear you had to run into one of them, I promise that I will never stand by and let something like that just happen, tho I probably can’t help you in the ladies washroom as it’s not often somewhere I visit.

    [4]
  50. Wow this is the most horrifying post of racism I ever read I hope justice will be served

  51. Chad Ennis Chad Ennis says:

    I’m Caucasian male myself but take it from me not all of us are that much of an asshole…. I myself have a deep respect for native Indians. Be proud of who you are and teach your children to be proud you have a culture second to none. You have my respect.

    [4]
  52. Horrible and I’m so sorry you and your babies had to deal with this.

    [3]
  53. Ugh, I’m so sorry this happened to you. You and your beautiful babies did absolutely nothing wrong and didn’t deserve that at all. I’m not sure what is filling people’s souls with so much hate lately but I truly hope that it stops soon. We all need to stand up to people who do this when we witness it happen.

    [3]
  54. I cannot believe something like this happened to you! I am so sorry you and your kids had to be witness and be attacked by this woman.

  55. Jerry Lennon Jerry Lennon says:

    So sorry you and your children had to go through that. No one has any right to talk to anyone like that . Please remember not everyone is like that.

    [3]
  56. She obviously has some deep serious problems & should seek help. It’s disgusting how she could verbally assault a child like she did. A very sorry excuse for a human being. Verbal assault like that does not have to be tolerated…..Nor should it ever be.

  57. Faye Segaran Faye Segaran says:

    This is unacceptable on so many levels … you do NOT scream profanities at children … nor anyone else for that matter … racism in never acceptable … I am sorry this happened to you and your babies ❤

    I would have smoked her

    [3]
  59. I am so sorry this has happened to you and your children. I really hope this women is charged for what she did. People need to learn that hate crimes are not ok. They should be taken very seriously especially considering all the events that have happened in the world, and sadly in the last 48 hours. Know that you are a better person. And that this persons actions do not share the ideals of myself and my family. We are all Canadians. Again so sorry. ❤

    [3]
  61. Did you get a photo of her? Did you address the situation with the security people? What can you do?

    They should have her on video as she was in the common area, and they should be able to provide a profile picture for you and police. If you can obtain please post and let us know what happens from police and security as it pertains to the verbal assault. If you can charge her do it, if all they can do is ban her from the premises do it. I highly suggest making her photo public it will aid in tracking her down.

  63. Ange Freer Ange Freer says:

    You’re so much better than her. Remember that. You’re a proud, strong, beautiful, traditional woman who deserves to be treated with respect. Not contempt. I am SO VERY SORRY you and your children were treated like that. There is absolutely NO place for racism. I don’t fucking care what the circumstances are. Ones colour of skin should never determine whether you’re a decent person. That’s what integrity is for. And clearly, this bitch has none. She also has no class. I truly hope you and your children are able to heal from this. May the great spirit guide you on your path. And may karma beat this bitch down where she belongs. On the bottom rung of the ladder.

    [3]
  64. This is sickening. As a proud Canadian white woman I am so ashamed of anyone who treats others in this manner. While this is completely unacceptable please don’t let it ruin your belief in the humanity of others. It may not be much but on behalf of all Canadians I offer my deepest sympathies to you and your family for being treated so badly. This is not acceptable.

    [3]
  65. Oh my gosh. How horrible for you and your babies. It makes me so angry to hear this. There is good and bad in all kinds of people. That woman has serious problems. I am always ready to stand up against such ugliness. For every person who spews filth there are so many more good people. Wish I had been there. You hold your head high girl. Your must be doing an incredible job for your little one to still have empathy and ask to pray for her.

    [3]
  66. I am so sorry for what happened to you and your little ones, but I am also proud of you, for speaking out and calling this woman out on her shitty attitude.

    It’s people with attitudes like hers, who end up acting on their messed up views.
    I hope you and your children can heal and feel safe. ❤️

  67. Aura Cruz Aura Cruz says:

    I am so disturbed, upset, and sorry this happened to you. You seemed to take the noble and higher ground and definitely showed you were a much better human being then her.

    Please console your children and yourself on the fact that this women is mostly likely deranged. Her mental state is clearly not right and she also needs help and put away somewhere where she cannot harm others (and herself). Stay strong, and pray that the creator touches her soul and eliminates her mind to rationalize and heal from her terrible ailments.

    I am proud to be Canadian and so proud of you, and our Indigenous brothers and sisters – your amazing and beautiful culture.

    I am so very sorry this happened to you and your little family. 🙁 Edmonton is not an awful place. But like many other Cities, biases, bigotry, blasphemy, racism and most other evils reside here in some places, in some people’s hearts and heads. This person was mean and ignorant. And she doesn’t deserve any more of your energy. Yes, she victimized you. But you do not need to be a victim any longer. Rise above this heinous act, and show your little ones how strong and amazing you are. It was brave of you to write this. My heart aches for you and your wee ones. You and they did not deserve this. Go ahead and charge this woman, if you are able to. Show your strength. Show your beautiful dignity. As long as you allow her inside your head, you will remain her victim. Don’t give her that power!

    [3]
  69. Remember that this, in the end, is not about you and your beautiful children. This is about someone whose heart is so full of hate that no one can please her. Karma, hopefully, will find her.

    She seems to forget that First Nations people were here long before settlers from European nations arrived. What a shame you and your children had to go through this!

  71. O.M.G. THIS IS TERRIBLE. poor little girl.

    [2]
  72. A horrible person a horrible situation. I hate racism. Hugs to you and your children.

    No excuse for that ignorant women.

    [2]
    • None whatsoever, but ignorance also has no race! There are ignorant people everywhere, and I’m sorry that this happened to you and your children!

      [2]
  75. So sorry for this aweful person , and the pain she caused , disgusting.

    [2]
  76. Blessings to you & your babies ~ Namaste`

    [2]
  77. I apologize for this individuals horrible behaviour. Please remember that when someone lashes out to that degree, the issue is with them and not you and your children. Obviously a very unhappy person. Enjoy the movie.

    [2]
  78. Well that was uncalled for. You clearly did nothing wrong or to provoke her. She’ll get hers.

  80. Diane Peters Diane Peters says:

    I am sorry you and your kids had to experience that. If it helps, please know that this woman is more than likely mentally unstable. I experienced something similar on the drive home from work a few weeks ago. Woman stopped her car in the middle of the traffic circle, and then when she started again she was driving very erratically. A pick up with directly behind her so I hope he/she got the license plate and reported it. But when I stopped beside her at the traffic light, I saw that she was yelling uncontrollably to herself. I called out (not screamed or yelled) that she shouldn’t be driving. She responded with a very hate filled diatribe and then drove off. All the way home I just kept hoping she made it safely and didn’t hurt anyone.

  81. Liz Frank Liz Frank says:

    I’m sorry this happened to you and your little ones. I wish I was there, because I would have definitely said something, I don’t care how big they are. Please don’t take it personally tho, this person is not right in the head. Ugh makes me sick reading this:(

    [1]
  82. Most people are not racist, but unfortunately some people still are. It is a disgrace that there are far too many people who abuse others. I hope you overcome this awful experience and will be able to focus on the good that is all around us.

    [1]
  83. What a horrible woman. I hope you get to charge her. Maybe she could learn from that.

    [1]
  84. I have no words for this. I am so sorry that this happened. People like that are horrible people .

    Keep on doing you, and teaching your family right from wrong and that this is not acceptable behaviour

    [1]
  85. That’s unfortunate what happened to you and your children. Sounds like she’s either coming down from crack/some other drug, drunk or mentally deranged, no one in their right mind behaves like that

    [1]
  86. Your babies are right. Pray for her and her children (if she has any) . You showed your children what an amazing mother you are by not getting in her face. Talk to your children about decency and honesty and bullying because she was definitely a bully. Try to put it behind you and know there are good people in this City who would never do or say such discusting things to you or anyone else. God bless.

    [1]
  87. I feel your pain. We will never understand the hate and bigotry.

    This is so disgusting, Im sorry you and your babies had to deal with something so horrible on a day you were to be enjoying with them. I hope you and your babies can spend the rest of the day together happily. She’s clearly a very unhappy person

    [1]
  90. I’m so sorry that you and your family had this experience. It sounds as though this woman has mental health issues, not that this excuses her behaviour in the least or negates your terrible experience. My heart would break if someone screamed at and scared my little boys, especially this type of hateful language. I hope that This does not keep you and your family from enjoying family experiences in the future and also that this woman finds the help and education she so obviously needs.

    [1]
  91. Honestly she sounds like she may have been on something. Not that that is an excuse. Although it was hurtful I would try and not let it ruin u. Clearly we arnt all like that…based on the comments and support here.

    This woman clearly has her own issues she needs to address.
    All u can do is teach ur kids to be kind to ALL races.

    [1]
  92. Omg this is so disgusting your poor kids my god!!! Smdh!!! I really hate people! Big huge hugs

    [1]
  94. This is so heartbreaking. I’m so sorry. If you are comfortable, please message me. I have a Cineplex gift card we won’t be using. I’d love for you to treat your girls and try to have a more pleasant experience ❤️

    [1]
  95. Wasn’t there anybody in the restroom who could have defended this mom and her children ? At least say something to the horrid woman ???What happened with Security ,did they come to this moms rescue . That woman is full of anger and hate , you wonder what’s wrong with her . What she did and said to this mom and her children was so awful .

    [1]
  96. Amanda Kerr Amanda Kerr says:

    What a disgusting woman to treat people like this. Shameful. There’s no excuse for ignorant assholes like this

    [1]
  97. ….This is so horrific to hear that this sick woman would scare and treat children and you this way in our City…She obviously has many mental and hatred issues but taking them out on you and your children, someone she doesn’t even know…& there is no excuse for this behavior, So very sorry

    [1]
    • Please don’t attribute this woman’s actions to mental illness. It’s insulting to individuals with mental illness. Maybe she does have a mental illness but there’s nothing to indicate that. She’s definitely an uneducated racist b**** though.

  98. Trudy Jensen Trudy Jensen says:

    I believe you came from Canada. Not everyone does. Wonder where she came from. Shame on her.

    [1]
  99. I’m so sorry for this woman’s horrible behaviour. Why do people do this?? I will pray for you and for your family to be surrounded only by love, light, kindness and good people.

    [1]
  100. You are right, one person can do so much damage with vile, hateful words and that’s beyond disgusting. You and your children, no one, should never have to face anything like this. There’s something very wrong with someone who would talk to people like this. The problem is theirs but you bore the brunt of it. Keep your head up and know you have the support of many.

    [1]
  101. You should have told the woman to go back where she came from since Native Canadian people were here first!! This enrages me that people think that they’re so much better than anyone else. Do we not all bleed? And at the end of the day, do we not all die? People like this woman have no place in society and had I been there I would have said so to her face. Also, did nobody speak up? That’s probably the worst part is that bystanders didn’t speak up and condemn her hatred. When you just stand by and do nothing then you’re just as culpable as the person being racist. Stay strong and know that not all people are like this woman.

    [1]
  102. I am horrified. Did anyone come to your defence? I am so sorry this happened to you!

    [1]
  103. Barb Gibbons Barb Gibbons says:

    my deepest sympathies to you and your children. I do hope security did charge that disgusting woman with something

    [1]
  104. I’m sorry to hear this happened to you. this shouldn’t happen anymore. I’m glad you were able to keep your cool and do things the right way by calling security and the police.

    [1]
  105. First of all…I’m sorry this happened to you. If I’d have been there, I’d have definitely stood by you and likely punched that broad’s teeth in.
    Second…it’s clear that one idiotic individual doesn’t speak for the masses. All the comments on here are an outpouring of love and support and in a world with so much hate and anger….that’s a really refreshing and heartwarming thing to see.
    Don’t let one stupid person ruin you.

  107. Shari Heiser Shari Heiser says:

    This hurts to read. It’s too common, and children are targeted too as proven by this evil hearted females actions. I don’t accept it though, neither should anyone else. Of any decent. Today of all days too. Tell your daughters to stay strong, rise above this and always carry their heads high. No matter what. Don’t let them see you break girls. Be brave like your Mother.

    [1]
  108. “Go back to where you came from” lol. Wow talk about stupid. This woman is obviously not well….and I’m glad you didn’t stoop to her level. Also grateful this is being reposted so awareness can be had. I had s similar experience growing up. A white lady verbally attacked my mother on a greyhound bus because I had to sit beside her, the bus was full. I was 7 at the time and it was the first time I heard racist things, I didn’t know we were different from other people up to that point.

    [1]
  109. Erin EC Erin EC says:

    Just pray and ask God to take that pain away and ask for peace. No matter what someone does or says to you, you need to forgive them. Let God deal with those people.

    [1]
  110. Good for you in handling the situation in an appropriate manner, and I hope the security team catch the women soon. I hope she will get charge for bulling and hate crime. Thanks for sharing your traumatic experience and bring this to the public awareness, there are still much work to be done against racism. Try not to take this personal and teach your children the same. That woman have deep issues in her own sad life and narrow mind. Not your or your girls issues, delete that bad experience like terminating rodent. ✌️

  111. Kyla Brown Kyla Brown says:

    That is horrible. Racism needs to stop. Hate crime needs to stop.

  112. I’m so very sorry that you and your poor children had to have this happen to you. It’s incredibly unacceptable.

    [1]
  113. I cried reading this. It’s tough enough being a single mom without some psycho lady making it worse.

    [1]
  114. Wow. Ppl need yo grow up. My child is 4, and he knows better then that. We have Muslim family who lives up stairs from us. And he tried to make friends with them. The little girl who was maybe 8 didnt understand English very well, so he explained what he wanted to do. Then with her sister’s help she knew what he wanted. In no way would i even think about saying anything like that or letting my kid at ANY age be that rude TO any one i dont care what race they are. We need to teach our child and i guess dome adults to stf up. No wonder thetes so much hate in the world today. Just remember you acted well. And make sure your kids know hiw much respect you have for other ppl and race.

    [1]
  115. Jessie Tayp Jessie Tayp says:

    Holy Fuck
    That’s not how all white ppl are….. I’m sorry that happened
    As a parent with a child of colour that experienced racism toward her I’m sorry to hear that…..
    no person should ever treat any other person that way for any other reason.

    [1]
    • Agreed. I’m unfortunately going to say that even though right now we see so much hate and ugliness and what we need is peace and love, we are on the brink of just disappointing fall outs with everything happening.

      [1]
    • TJ Jomha TJ Jomha says:

      These events will continue when people keep doing stupid things that add fuel to ignorant thoughts. We are allowed to dislike what we want but it crosses the line when you hurt people…its harder to hate and be angry than it is to just be kind.

      [1]
  117. Shame on her! This infuriates me. Hold your head up high and never let someone so ignorant make you or your children feel like that.

    [1]
  118. Holy! That woman is lucky I wasn’t in the bathroom with you guys because she would have gotten a mouthful from me.
    I’m so sorry this happened to you and your family.
    I hope that woman gets what she deserves.

    [1]
  119. That’s just awful. Ew. The woman still sounds mentally ill. Almost wish I was there to speak up for you, maybe even replace those ugly moments with a little silliness so your babies had better memories of the day. It won’t change the events but I hope you get justice, more importantly I hope you all heal from that trauma and all the rest and live like those disgusting words could never hurt you.

    [1]
  120. Kim Leeder Kim Leeder says:

    I will not apologize to you just because I’m Caucasian. That person was a sorry excuse as a woman. I do not understand such intolerance. Please tell your beautiful children that this person was wrong and that most people do not think the same way.

    [1]
  121. Krista says:

    You are teaching your daughters compassion and kindness, and that is why their response was to “pray for her”. What a wonderful mum you are to these beautiful girls.

    [1]
  122. No one deserves that kind of treatment

    [1]
  123. Un-freaking-believable. I just can’t wrap my head around how truly hateful some people are. Some people just want to watch the world burn. I’m truly sorry you, your children, and the WEM employee all had to deal with this C.U.

    [1]

  126. Suva Maple Suva Maple says:

    The most unfortunate thing about the world is that you will always run into stupid hateful people. Who don’t need a reason other than they can. It is hard to think beyond them sometimes . But just focus on the fact that your children saw thier mom acting as a responsible parent, remaining calm , not stooping to her level and getting the authorities to deal with her. They saw a strong mom and will be proud of you for it.
    Remember you and your kids are better than that women.

    [1]
  127. So disgusting and no one of any group deserves this kind of treatment… so sorry this happened to you and your child…

  128. Tami Wasitew Tami Wasitew says:

    Love to you nicimos. All of us stand here in support of you. I can say with my whole heart I understand. I have witnessed and experienced this vile type of behavior myself and it is my mission to be change in this world. Hold your head up high…you and your babies are beautiful. I am so sorry they had to witness such vile hatred.

  130. Glenda GM Glenda GM says:

    Wow I just want to cry with you. I can’t believe there are people like that. You , the kids and Any one can go where ever they want ,no one has the right to treat anyone like that. I am so sorry. Don’t let this rotten apple ruin the rest of your life. Learn from this and let it give you strength and teach your daughters the strength of your culture and to always keep their heads held high. You and your culture deserve to be here more than any of us foreigners. Thank you for opening this land to us.

    [1]
  131. Wow what a horrible disgusting person! She is probably on drugs and/or definitely has mental issues!

    [1]
  132. I am so sorry that this woman verbally abused your children and you, as well as the security guard. That is totally unacceptable.

    [1]
  133. Wow! This is absolutely unacceptable behavior and its so ugly how some folk think it’s their God given right to behave as such and say profanity like that in front of children. Just pray for her Michelle, I’m sorry this had to happen to you and thank goodness you stood your ground many levels above hers and called the authority, I hope she gets charged with common assault and causing shock on children who did not deserve that what’s so ever!

    [1]
  134. Holy cow. Sounds as much like mental illness as racism. I am so sorry you and your babies had to endure such hate.

    [1]
  135. She is fucking lucky I was not in that bathroom when she did that to your baby! You may not have done anything considering the situation, but I would have! I’m white also but I don’t put up with that shit! There is no need for that!

    [1]
  136. Dude if anyone ever treated my kid like that is punch them. Too fucking bad, you treat abkid that way get hit. Charge me if you want. I’m appalled at the way this woman and Her children were treated. I hope the abuser doesn’t have children cause they will be like her unfortunately

    [1]
  137. Wow the extremes people will go to because of the hate in their hearts is appalling. The way you responded to this woman speaks volumes of character in which she obviously lacks. No one, regardless of race, deserves to be treated that way. I would wish the worst upon that woman but your children are right, pray for her. Anyone with that much hate inside is the one who will always suffer the most. Hopefully the authorities will act accordingly.

    [1]
  138. Honestly, it sucks to be treated that way, but I doubt there’s anything you can charge her with. And I don’t think you should. What she said was incredibly rude and I’m sure it shook your daughter up; she sounds like she was pretty unhinged. But you can’t charge someone for just being a jerk and yelling rude things at you.

    This kind of thing happens all the time – I’ve had a Native guy come to me at the bus stop and go on an incredibly lewd and disturbingly detailed tirade about what he would “do to me” (if you catch my drift) and what my male friend should do to me… I’ve had several random Native people approach me in public places and yell at me about how we stole their land and culture (my parents are both immigrants direct from Europe, and not even from countries that colonized Canada at that), I’ve had Muslim people throw eggs at me and call me a white slut as I walked by, Muslims paintballed our house and stole our stuff, and they threw rocks and kicked at my sisters while they prayed at school (the school responded by saying they shouldn’t have been praying in public). I’ve had a number of black people recently call me a Nazi because I refuse to say that all “people of colour” are the same. I’ve had people scream in my face and pound on the tables when they hear some of my religious views… and when I went for counseling, the counselors (yes, two of them) told me it was my fault for mentioning my religious views to other people (even at times when I was asked about them) and one of them tried to change my religious beliefs instead of helping me deal with the hatred.

    It sucks a lot to be on the receiving end of stuff like that. But realistically, unless it results in physical harm or something similarly serious, you don’t have much of a chance to do anything from a legal point of view – and that’s probably actually for the best. People can be jerks sometimes, in a really big way, but if we brought everyone who was a jerk to us to court, our society would be in an even more messed up place than we already are.

    The appropriate response in that situation was exactly what happened – you defended your girl and yourself, called security, and they handled things from there. In a hundred other cases of unhinged people acting crazy at the mall, that is exactly what would have happened, no more and no less.

    I say, comfort your girl, tell her it was wrong to be treated that way, and most importantly, teach her to hold her head high anyway. We shouldn’t be dragging the courts into every personal slight we experience, no matter how ridiculously rude or scary the person is – and we certainly can’t let our personal sense of strength & dignity be tied into things like that. I’m 100% sure that no matter what hardships your family has endured, you are all better and stronger than that.

    • Hayley Gagar Hayley Gagar says:

      You’ve completely missed the point here. And no one is interested in how you’d handle this. It wasn’t you. She seems like a good mom; I doubt she wants your advice. This is a story worth sharing and you tried to make it about you. I’m not surprised that you’re so frequently the victim of hate.

      [2]
    • Hayley Hagar. I personally know Sheila and I can tell you for fact that she is a sweet, salt of the earth kind of person who only thinks is the best of people. Your attack is completely unwarranted.

      [0]
    • Thanks Justin. Hayley Gagar I was just saying this kind of thing happens all the time and she shouldnt take it too personally. I never said she was a bad mom or anything, quite the opposite. I have no idea why you’re so upset that you’d say I deserve being treated as I was. That’s a pretty horrible thing to say.

      [0]
    • This is a form of assault. I would press charges 100%

      [0]
    • Hayley Gagar no you completely missed the point of what Sheila said – she’s not accusing or attacking this mother, nor is she making it about herself. She was showing that we all have instances like this and we can support each other by sharing them and showing that we won’t let those people get to us, unless we choose to. We can’t control the actions of others, but we can control how we respond to them. She’s 100% right.

    • Yes, thanks Amanda Hallick! That’s exactly what I was getting at.

    • Hayley Gagar Hayley Gagar says:

      The fact that this person is trying to drop knowledge is condescending. Do you really think your experience with racism even compares to hers in any capacity? You start by minimizing the issue “yeah it sucks to be treated this way, but…” then go on about how you understand very well what it’s like to experience verbal racial assault because being white is so hard in this country, or you’re just extremely unlucky, or visible minorities are just generally aggressive. It was important for you to mention their races an religions, huh?
      Oh and let’s not waste the courts’ time because you didn’t report incidents, so she shouldn’t.
      Then you go on to make suggestions about how she should counsel her child through this; like bitch what?!?! Are you lost? I think she got this, so have a seat, please.

      Your post comes off as arrogant and obnoxious. That’s why I “attacked” you. I’m so, so tired of people like you running your mouth out of your lane.

      And in case you had a little trouble reading, I didn’t say I think you deserve to be the victim of hate. I said I’m not surprised. I mean, this kinda thing happens all the time right?

      [0]
    • Wow. She posted her story on a highly public forum, asking whether she should sue. I don’t think she should & made a suggestion on how to handle it. She can do whatever she wants, & you’re free to disagree with my perspective, but you can stop it with the whole “condescending jerk thinks she’s a social justice hero” garbage.

      But yeah, if you’re gonna insist that by suggesting a lady encourage her daughter to have self-respect regardless of the actions of others that I’m a b****, and to act as though my own experience is somehow justified by picking at my race or making excuses for minorities doing racist things, or doing all kinds of logical gymnastics as to why it’s okay for her to mention the race of the lady at the mall but not okay to do the same when sharing my own experience, I’ll just be ignoring you from now on.

      [0]
    • Mrs. Gaygar,

      Surely you are not familiar with the tactics of “relating” or “showing empathy”. That is why people share stories in time of troubles; sharing experiences shares acquired wisdom and allows people to bond I’m times of tragedy. She had also provided her logical input, which was asked for.

      In a forum that is dealing with the subject of rasicm you turn around and prove that Yes, unreasonable hatred against minorities exist, showing by example what a bigot looks like.

      What? You didn’t know that “White” isn’t a race? That there are literally hundreds of different cultures she could be that each have differing values, histories and outlooks that you cannot tell by skin color alone?

      Anyhoo, this is Canada. Intolerance is not our jam. Please check your personal issues at the door before you decide to go Cracker Huntin’.

      [0]
    • This seemed like an attempt to “one up” which is invalidating to someone who just shared their experience. I’m curious as to where you are subjected to this many racially based hateful actions. There are individuals in all races that are racist against others. I’m wondering why you’re targeted so often. I live in an area where as a Caucasian individual I am probably outnumbered by people of color. I have never once been subjected to racism

    I hope and I’m sure that you know that this is a deeply disturbed woman. Nobody should ever be subjected to such unwarranted hatred. Wether it be an adult, a child or a parent with children. Please get past this, it’s not you, it’s her and I hope firstly she gets charged, and then gets the help she needs.

    • How everyone doesn’t realize that we come and go to the same place. We are all humans living and loving and learning. It’s troubling to me how it’s so hard for people to get along and accept one another. In the big scheme of things what does race or religion or anything have to do with it. We are all the same.

    [1]
  142. This made my blood boil…anyone who attacks a child verbally or pysically.. .is the worse kind of racist..its terrible that in this day and age people still believe we are all different .
    I hope she is charged with a hate crime cause that is what it is.
    I hope you and your babies are ok…there are some nasty people in this world but there are more good than bad…hopfully you never see that again…i wish I was there with you when it happened. Take care.

    [1]
  144. Unlike her you are from here so her asking you to go back where you came from already shows her lack of intelligence and knowledge of history. She behaved worse than any kid with a tantrum so her mental age was probably less than your three year old.

  147. Brent Smith Brent Smith says:

    Most people don’t feel or act the way this woman did. She is the one with the problem, not you. Many people are tired of racism and hatred. Be strong young lady.

    [1]
  150. Omg these poor ppl omg #Racisim got to stop .yelling at kids who does that I hope that lady gets charged

    [1]
  151. She’s glad I wasn’t there… I would have put my steel toed boot so far up that bitches ass she’d have to get it surgically removed.

    [1]
  152. My heart breaks for you and your children ❤️ way to stay strong in such a stressful situation!! Stay tough momma! This lady obviously has some issues, and it’s a shame that she took it out on your children!!! I hope your girls are alright and can walk away from this easily ❤️

    [1]
  153. This women who did this to you has no class at all, she is not that well informed on the native issue in this country, there is good and bad in every race on this earth, she just helped make us white folks look bad, but we are not all like this just like there are many proud Natives in this country, and some that make there race looked down upon, so no one walks away unscathed!

  154. Marie Blue Marie Blue says:

    It’s not you mam, it’s the Caucasian lady. She is the one who’s got a problem. So sorry this happened to you and your kids.

  155. Joey Ker Joey Ker says:

    I am so very sorry that you and your children had to endure this…..this woman, and I say woman this with a grain of salt, she does not represent the majority of Canadians, she is a “racist bitch”, sorry, but this is how I feel….she should be charged with a hate crime….take care and hug your babies…..

    [1]
  156. Paula Andrea Paula Andrea says:

    As a fellow Canadian I am disgusted at the treatment you revieved at the mall today on what should have been a fun mother daughter day. I hope you get your day in court and have this woman punished for hate crimes. I have a friend who is white and her boyfriend is Jamaican simalar situation at a grocery store by and elderly woman getting in a 5 year olds face and just spewing racist bullshit at him. Unfortunately the store asked him to leave with his boy as the woman continued instead of asking her to (he had just completed check out) the lady was next in line

    [1]
  157. Some people are so rude and hate others because they don’t love themselves

    [1]
  158. This is a hate crime on a highest level. That woman should be charged and jailed . Disgusting. I am sorry you had to go through that.

    [1]
  159. This absolutely breaks my heart, I am so sorry that you and your children had to be treated with such disrespect.

    [1]
  160. Trish Kinney Trish Kinney says:

    How hurtful. Her hatred is about her and not you. Keep spreading Love and Pride. People like this are so vile on the inside they could never extend to you or your beautiful babies what she can’t give or see in herself don’t let the poison leach into you. Sorry for your hurt and fear.

    [1]
  161. My heart hurts for you! Know that you are never alone, walking out of something like you did shows courage and strength on your behalf. Your girls are lucky to have an amazing mother who puts them first. Much love, if you ever need to speak feel free to message me! Much love xo.

    [1]
  162. I’m so sorry this happened to you. You don’t deserve it. Stay strong and hold your head high. You have much to be proud of.

    [1]
  163. You are beautiful. Some pos need no reason.

    [1]
  164. This is soooo sad. Sorry you had to go through this

    [1]
  165. L. Todd says:

    so sorry you and your children had to go through that. So wrong. So racist. You and your children deserve a good life free of such hate. I hope all the kind support being shown here brings some peace.

    [1]
  166. I am so sorry you and your daughters had to experience this ignorance today. Please, she does NOT speak for all of us, thankfully. You are beautiful and I am very proud of you and your heritage. Please don’t cry because you are native……..your daughter is very wise when she said “pray for her mom”…..I’ll do the same. Thank you for sharing and stay strong. Together we can all stand up against hate…..in any form.

    [1]
  167. I read some of the extended comments. I am not apologizing either as a person or caucasian. There is no reason to treat anyone like that woman treated you. Totally unacceptable and had I been there I would have dragged her out by her hair and accidentally her head would hit a lot of stuff on the way out. No one should have to put up with that kind of behaviour regardless of who you are and especially not against children. Some would show false compassion to the raging crazy woman who assaulted you and blame it on being from a broken home, bad day at the office, boo hoo poor perpetrator. Not a chance. This person (barely that) should be charged with assault, battery, making hateful statements and whatever else the police can think of to charge her with. Send her to trial, no psycobabble about how hard she’s had it (boo hoo) and how she is a good person underneath. Bullshit. She showed her true colours as a bad person. Send her to jail, fine her a bunch and then send her to live in a first nations village until the elders deem her fit to live with other humans. That may take a while or may never happen. The only race on the earth is the human race. Whatever colour our prehistoric ancestors became due to their environment does not matter. We’re all pink underneath and bleed red. That is the human condition. If it were up to me she would face the same kind of public humiliation she tried to inflict on you. Maybe we should bring back public stocks and flogging. Might have tempered her behavior

    [1]
  168. My goodness they’re are good and bad of all kinds typed etc. Why don’t people mind their own I stead of scolding and scaring people. Awful sorry that happened!

    [1]
  169. This is terrible and I’m sorry for your family that lady was obviously in the wrong and not all are like her big hugs

    [1]
  170. Jena Sandra Jena Sandra says:

    This is devastating I can’t stop crying as I read this. No woman, child or anyone should ever be spoken to or treated this way. This was a verbal assault and a hate crime. I am so sorry this happened to you and so ashamed for this awful woman. She needs to be prayed for with that much hate in her soul.

    [1]
  171. Jim Vesso Jim Vesso says:

    I wish that we could learn how to intervene in situations like this. I recently heard of a similar case of abuse… A woman, a passing stranger, approached and quietly started talking in a low tone to the abused person, totally ignoring the abuser’s rants. She offered herself as a supporting, comforting wedge between the abuser and the abused. She did not raise her voice, nor offer any counter rants, (which would only have inspired a more vicious attack). Eventually the ranter saw the spectacle she was inciting, was not having an effect. And left. I so wish this could have happened at WEM, or that the situation had never happened at all.

    [1]
  172. Jena Sandra Jena Sandra says:

    Please please charge this woman. She and others need to be shown that this is in fact a crime. I hope it might empower you and your children to take action and stand proud against her.

    [1]
  173. Same on the rage this individual had She needs help.Sad society has to put up with ignorant one track mind people.. Blessing to your baby girl and you young lady ..Hiy Hiy.

    [1]
  174. I apologize for what that woman said to you. I hate it when people act out like this, no one has the right to do what she did to you and your children. Makes me ashamed to be classified as a white person. Believe me most of us are not like her.

    [1]
  175. I am so sorry to hear this happened to you. Please know that I honour and support you. You are and amazing mother and absolutely no one has the right to be so disrespectful of you and your family.

    [1]
  176. ❤️ love to you and yours. I’m SO sad to read that you experienced this today!

    [1]
  177. What an awful woman you encountered. No one deserves to be treated like that!

    [1]
  178. I. am so sorry for you and your children to go through such a horrible episode. May God Grant you love , peace and grace . Pray for that horrible person . So angry , so sad .

    [1]
  179. I know it’s been said by NUMEROUS please here, but I’m going to say it again. I’m so sorry this happened to you and your children. No one should be treated like that. I hope they prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law. How dare she say to you to go back to where you came from. You have more right to be in this country than she does. That woman makes me ashamed to be a white person. So much hatred in the world now. So sad. I literally cried when I read this out to my son. You did the right thing and I can tell you are a good person and a good mother.

    [1]
  180. I am so sorry this happened to you. I wish I could have been able to stand up for you.

    [1]
  181. Whoever this white women is she sure has mental supremacy race issues and this has got to stop they have no right to insult or judge our race we are not on welfare who does this freakish women think she is getting off hurting and attacking racial insults sue her and charge her for hate crimes whoever she is she needs to be banned from the mall nobody needs to be insulted or lied about specially publicly and on top humiliated with such profanity of insults and attacking a 3 yr old in a giant mall

    [1]
  182. Brad Daae Brad Daae says:

    The gap between one race and another is getting bigger and bigger .. I’m from Alberta now live in northern onterio I have known the racist side of Alberta.. here it is French and English .. we need to stand above that as Canadians and welcome each other with open arms … does anyone remember how it was 30 years ago ….

    [1]
  183. I am so sorry for your experience!! This woman does not speak for me. You are a First Nations Canadian mother and have every right to live your life and raise your children in safety, and in dignity and respect. ❤️

    [1]
  184. This woman sounds like she had mental issues. I am so sorry this happened to you, your family and the bathroom attendant. Please know that this is NOT the norm. We are all Canadians regardless of ethnicity, colour, race, etc., That’s the beauty of Canada! How fortunate we are to have such diversity.

    [1]
    • Please don’t attribute this woman’s actions to mental illness. It’s insulting to individuals with mental illness. Maybe she does have a mental illness but there’s nothing to indicate that. She’s definitely an uneducated racist b**** though.

      [0]
  185. Casper Marie Casper Marie says:

    Not sure what she meant by “go back so where you come from” you’re native …. As in native to these lands … She must have gotten her racist phrases jumbled in her tiny brain …. So so sorry this happened to you and your children unfortunately ignorance is everywhere that does not excuse her words im just glad to hear it didn’t turn physical … Wishing you and your children healing

    [1]
  186. Babs Scott Babs Scott says:

    Please remember this horrible person does not represent even a tiny fraction of Canada. She is the worst kind of person ever. So sorry anyone has to put up with racial harassment.

    [1]
  187. Did you take her picture ?
    I wish I was there, she would never speak to another person like that again.
    For the simple fact, she seems like her life is full of hate,
    We’re all so sorry for your family.
    People are so tired, of people like this !!!
    BE PROUD OF WHOM YOU ARE, TEACH YOUR BABIES NOT ALL PEOPLE ARE NICE, LOVE WHO YOU ARE

    [1]
  188. Brie Charette says:

    Like many have said, that woman was mentally ill and her bullshit has not a dang thing to do with you, your beautiful children, nor your honorable ancestry. It’s what growing up in an ignorant, racist society that privileges all White people sometimes to the point of delusion in the case of people like her who gladly embrace the propaganda. Unfortunately, her sickness was rained down on you through no fault of your own. You did the smartest thing in focusing on protecting yourself in the moment and calling security. To do otherwise could have put you and yours at more risk depending on her and even the authority’s response. Of course it would not be wrong to knock her out but we live in a legal world, not a just world and things easily get twisted in favour of the White person.
    My frustration at this bigotry is unbounded and I am particularly angry at all the other people in that bathroom who apparently said, nor did, anything to stand up for you and you girls.
    I can now only wish that I, as a white woman, could have been there to take her venom, and maybe knock her out myself.

    [1]
  189. Ricki Munro Ricki Munro says:

    I’m sorry that this is happened to you. If I can be of any support please let me know. I am visually impaired and I’m a good listener

    [1]
  190. What a horrible thing to happen to you and your family. Be strong. Charges against her will go a long way to strengthen and support your already strong spirit. I wish you the best. From another single mother.

    [1]
  191. Wow absolutely terrible

    [1]
  192. Peggy Conte Peggy Conte says:

    I am so sorry this happened to you and your children. This women is a very poor excuse for a human being. I wonder if she is on something. I can’t believe a person could be so cruel. When she told you to go back to where you came from I guess she didn’t realize that the 1st Nation people were here first. I hope you never encounter someone like this again. Hate is so ugly, it has to end.

    [1]
  193. Ricki Munro Ricki Munro says:

    I know that I cannot see but if I heard any of this going down I would not be very pleased and I would stand by your side as well as her children and help you through anything you both are all strong and I would do anything to make sure that you both were all safe

    [1]
  194. Vicky Adams Vicky Adams says:

    My heart is breaking for you. I am in tears. I cannot change ignorant people, because they are just that. Know that everyone of a different race than you are not horrible, as I am sure you are aware. I hope you can find the words to comfort your children, so they do not ever discriminate in the way you have been treated. Find peace in the caring that has been shared with you today.

    [1]
  195. This woman is the epitome of hatred and disgust. I cannot imagine what kind of home she grew up in to have such a black heart. I am so sorry for you and mostly for your precious children. Thankfully there are more of us who spread love than hate. Don’t let this horrible example of racism darken your heart.

    [1]
  196. How upsetting. Sorry you had to go through this. Please realize that most people are not like this.

    [1]
  197. Kim Bachand Kim Bachand says:

    I am so sorry you and your children had to go through this.

    [1]
  198. I am so sorry you had to go through this, disgusting behaviour by that very mean and evil person. Hope she is charged with a hate crime and your little ones are okay!

    [1]
  199. Tara Guymer Tara Guymer says:

    That’s is unbelievable! I’m so sorry your family went through that. You should sue! To go through that at such a young age is utter bull. I hope she and you remember that she does not portray what the majority of people think. Just the few very narrow minded and cruel individuals.

    [1]
  200. Pat Pederson Pat Pederson says:

    We are coming into our own , those cowards see it and do not like it , your response was dignified.

    [1]
  201. I have no words except to say I’m sorry you experienced such unwarranted hatred.

    [1]
  202. Patti Mercer Patti Mercer says:

    I’m in BC, but I want to apologize to you and your family for the ignorance of this woman. Stand tall, be proud, you are doing the right thing by attempting to charge her with hate crime……. if mental illness is her excuse, then she will get the help she needs. ❤️ hugs big hugs to you and your babies!

    [1]
  203. This makes me very sad. I’m so sorry that you and you children had to go through this, no one should have too. disgusting. You are beautiful. Welcome to Edmonton. Not everyone’s like her. I’ve lived here since 1988, from Trinidad & Tobago and has been told to “go back where you come from” many times. I hold my head high. I am a proud Canadian. Small minded, uneducated people can’t break me and I refuse to lets them. Forgive, don’t forget and remember karma is a bitch..

    [1]
  204. That’s disgusting that anyone would say that. That is very traumatizing; I’m so sorry you had to go through that. That lady is lucky I wasn’t in that washroom..I would have.lost.it

    [1]
  205. Im sorry this happened to you obviously this woman has some issues, i hope you and Your babies are okay. I commend you for handling this like a real woman and the amazing mother that you obviously are. Chin up honey!! Take care of those babies and stay classy

    [1]
  206. Sorry this happened to you
    None should make assumptions about anyone!

    Just know the no all Caucasian women are like her. She has no respect for herself or anyone else

    [1]
  207. Naila Cazon Naila Cazon says:

    We need to stand strong in the face of racism and oppression. Share a message with your children, she has a brave heart to take that person’s anger and to respond with peace; your daughter has a warrior’s heart. We will raise our children to change these stereotypes that plague our People. Be strong my sister in spirit! I stand with you.

    [1]
  208. Thank you for your bravery in sharing your story and the ugly truth that Edmonton is full of nasty racism. I’m so sorry you and your babies had this experience. There is no excuse for that person to treat any one in such a horrid manner, certainly not children who have been through so much in their lifetime. Wishing you love and peace and strength. I hope justice can be delivered.

    [1]
  209. I’m so sorry you all had to experience that

    [1]
  210. Absolutely disgusting!!! I am horrified by this ugly racist incident. I hope she is caught and you file charges.

    [1]
  211. This is just crazy! No explanation will excuse that behaviour to anyone let alone small children! Your beautiful. Really. Truly. I hope you take comfort in these messages and I hope karma works its magic on her.

    [1]
  212. Rita Fogden Rita Fogden says:

    Totally unacceptable, completely devastating that this could have happened here or anywhere. I truly cannot fathom that kind of behaviour and am disgusted and deeply saddened that you, your children, or anyone has to be subjected to that kind of hatred and abuse. Why can’t people just let other people be, why does it matter what colour your skin is, what your religion is, what sexual orientation you are, or anything that does not affect any other person. Any person who thinks that Native peoples should “go back where they came from” is not only a disgusting disgraceful person, but utterly ignorant and unbelievably stupid.

    [1]
  213. Tina Fagan Tina Fagan says:

    Hugs to you and the babies. With so much hurt in the world…. why??? Why cause more. Makes me sad that you an the little ones had to be victims of a horrible person like that. My dear sister an friend I stand behind you an know you have a friend who is proud of you an your culture. Bless you and your babies.

    [1]
  214. It hurts my heart to see a strong woman on a fun night out with her kids reminded of violence and trauma and abuse by a stranger. I wish someone would have stepped between you.

    [1]
  215. I thought us Canadians were supposed to be welcoming and accepting. This is totally uncalled for! Hopefully this is a good learning message for others to stand up and be the voice against such occurrences.

    [1]
  216. Darcy Moss Darcy Moss says:

    I’m really sorry you had to go through that it makes me ashamed to share the same colour of skin, thankfully were not all like that. I’m usually proud to be an albertan

    [1]
  217. Kaeli Husak Kaeli Husak says:

    No one should have to face that kind of unprovoked hatred. My heart hurts for you and especially your little ones. You must be one good Momma, though, to have your child respond with a request to prayer for this woman. You are raising children who show compassion regardless of the hurt they recieve. Well done.

    [1]
  218. This is awful!! I am so sorry you and your babies had to experience this. More power to you, to do what you need to do to help yourself and your babies!

    [1]
  219. Marie Rose Marie Rose says:

    My parents and family had this happen in Londonderry mall. Teenagers kicked down my three year old nephew and screamed profanities to my family to go back to their country. Racism happens to all races. I wish I was there as I would die defending my family and I fight with my bare hands. If this was my family, my last worry would be how I’d look as a victim. That lady would have her arms broken and her mouth smashed in. I also study anatomy so I know where to break, hit, or jab to disable you and possibly kill you.

    [1]
  220. Cathy Berner Cathy Berner says:

    I am so sorry this happened to you and your children. We cannot shelter our children from all the wrong in the world, but we can give them tools to help them overcome the hurt they encounter. I hope the support you receive helps you stay strong and proud, so your children follow in your footsteps.

    [1]
  221. I’m so sorry about that, nobody has the right to treat you in that way. I’m proud of you because you were not respond in a violent way, and that makes the difference.

    [1]
  222. This is HORRIFIC and not a representation of other “Caucasian” human beings, just as the Indigenous people in our country struggle to fight against the stereotypes laid upon them by a select group of fools, please don’t judge the rest of the “Caucasian” population by what one hugely ignorant, angry and foolish “Caucasian” women said to you today….this is very very clear, she was an extremely unstable, hateful individual who carries a great deal of anger and ignorance. So very sorry for you, be brave enough to utilize the resources we have in place today, to hold her accountable and re-educate her incomprehensible void of knowledge.

    [1]
  223. Lee Lee Lee Lee says:

    This lady is stronger than I am because I would have kicked open the stall door and kicked in her teeth till her freedom of speech was demolished. How dare she talk down to natives on their native land! And children‽

    [1]
  224. Erica To Erica To says:

    This makes me so sad to hear. I hope people in Edmonton can come together and stand up against attacks like this.

    [1]
  225. Sonia Lovely Sonia Lovely says:

    How horrible! I’m so sorry. I hope there will an appropriate resolution. I wish this had never happened to you.

    [1]
  226. Raman Job Raman Job says:

    You and your good family should never have to endure profanity and ignorance. So sorry and ashamed that anyone would treat you like that. SMH

    [1]
  227. I am really sorry that happened to you. That woman is nuts. She does not speak for everyone. You cannot fix stupid. Please know that there are millions of us Caucasian people who do not care what race a person is. We are all members of the human race. A thousand sorries cannot take away the harm she has done. I hope your heart heals. Please tell your kids for me that her behaviour puts her on the bottom of the heap, and you are miles ahead of her. You daughter was right, she needs prayers.a big hug for you.

    [1]
  228. Disgusting! There are charges for people who physically abuse and there should be for those that verbally abuse also. What a disgrace.

    [1]
  229. I’m so sorry about this! We went through racism as well today but this is beyond horrific. I wish I was there to defend you and your beautiful babies. My heart aches for you. ❤️

    [1]
  230. I think racist morons like this woman are like dinosaurs..we all know what happened to the dinosaurs..we just have to wait for them die..but every once in a while one crawls out from under a rock to remind us that we still have work to do…majority of the people are compassionate and caring that’s where our hope resides…too bad it’s not on video so her family and friends and employer can see her true nature

    [1]
  231. Compile as much evidence and as many witnesses as you can, then sue her in The Queens Court. I hope you find closure.

    [1]
  232. She should get back in the boat…Columbus is sailing back to where they came from….

    [1]
  233. This is still so sad that in 2017 we are still reading about this kinda pain that really in our back doors
    We no longer have to read about issues when they happen at our local mall. Or any public.place dear god plz keep this fam safe.from.more negativity

    [1]
  234. Good for posting this because people need to know that there is racism all around. It is not right. In all honesty sometimes you have to look at who is speaking and decide if they are worth the cause. This lady does not even deserve to be in your presence or your children. I sure hope you guys are all okay.

    [1]
  235. I’m so sorry you and your kids had this experience. I hope she is charged, and agree with some others here that the woman does not sound stable.

    [1]
  236. Katie Pearse Katie Pearse says:

    This is so sad and frightening. Best wishes to and your children. They’ve obviously got a great mom. ❤️❤️❤️

    [1]
  237. You did nothing wrong, and neither did your babies! I absolutely hate that you and your babies had to endure that! Please know, that not all white women are like that. Most aren’t, myself included. I’m sorry she behaved that way to you, and the staff. She’s either very very unhappy with her life, or possibly suffers from mental illness. Either way, you should not have been through such an ordeal. I hope your kids and you can forget the whole despicable incident.

    [1]
  238. I am horrified that someone felt that they had any right to do that, and how difficult for you and your kids. I hope the people around supported you. If I had been there, (4foot 11) I would have challenged her and intervened. I hope you can rise above it, she is ignorant and damaged, and hopefully will be shamed in court for harassment, but sadly, would not put money on it.

    [1]
  239. Grant Paziuk Grant Paziuk says:

    Terrible ugly behaviour towards you and your children. Such aggression. So sorry you and your children went through that.

    [1]
  240. All I can say is OMG. The audacity of that woman. No one has the right to talk to anyone like that regardless of people’s race. I am so sorry that your children had to witness that. If there I definitely would have stepped in and out her in her place. Please try to remember that not all white people are that rude and uncivilized. Some of us are respectable civilized people.

    [1]
  241. Good on you for not getting up in her face. Shows that you are the better person. And good for you for getting out of an abusive relationship. What a great example and role model you are for your girls. Stay strong for your girls. But show them it’s ok to be upset about things. You are doing a great job. I don’t care about the color of ppls skin or their cultural background. As long as you are a good person and treat ppl woth respect, I will give the se in return. I hope you (or your girls) never jave to experience something like this again.

    [1]
  242. Ann Barrett Ann Barrett says:

    This is an absolute disgrace and I hope the Justice System takes this all the way. In all honesty I think the woman is deranged. Hope you are all ok. You and you’re family are beautiful xx

  243. Rory Crowell Rory Crowell says:

    If you really think about it we’re all intruders on your land and she should be the first one on the boat back. I’m so sorry you and your children had to put up with that.

    This abusive assault needs to be documented in a court of law and she should be punished for her actions.

    Unfortunately, the systemic racism, sexism, classism, and learned behavior patterns that exist to denigrate anyone who appears not to belong to the “chosen group” is deeply rooted.

    As refugees arrive in ever increasing numbers from countries that are experiencing war, civil unrest, famine, catastrophic climate change etc … we will witness more of these hate crimes.

    Speak up and use your voice! Stand up for equal rights!

    The Aboriginals are the original people of this continent. So much of their wisdom has been wiped out by the “conquerors”.

    I Stand with this amazing native woman and her daughters to shoutout against racism.

The colour of our skin does not make us better or worse as a person, it’s our culture and human integrity that makes us good people… unfortunately we are living in an awful world of hate, due to undereducated people.. Caucasian included. Share this story and remember we are all human.. ❤️

  300. I apologize that you and your babies went through this. It was totally unacceptable behaviour. Hats off to you for remaining calm cause I am not sure I could have if someone was screaming at my babies or me like that. This woman obviously has some issues in her life to be treating anyone like that. She definitely needs some help. When people do stuff like this it says a lot about them and nothing about those they attack. I am sad that in today’s society racism still exists. ((HUGS))

  315. I was disgusted with the increase in racism I witnessed after moving to Alberta…Edmonton to be specific. Because I happen to be Caucasian, these views were shared with me and I was quick to knock them down as I do not live like that. All peoples have value to me and this woman sounds like she would pick on anyone…native, Hindu, challenged people…an obviously mentally unstable individual. How frightening for your little ones! The only good thing I can see her is that first she did not get physical as that would have been a lot worse for anyone she targeted but also that your sweet little one wanted to pray for her. You are raising beautiful children with lovely hearts who, despite being frightened by this sad woman, saw that she needed to be prayed for and I continue to pray for anyone who is in the path of violence which you have stated you did not want in your or your children’s lives by choosing to leave a violent situation. I pray that you and your little ones can find peace in your hearts and know that there are good people out there who would never attack like this but would see the beauty in both you and your little ones. bless you for speaking out!

    You area beautiful woman with two beautiful daughters. Some people have a lot of mental problems, this person that yelled at you is one example. Teach your girls that some people have brain defects, and you have to have compassion, they can’t help how they are. Perhaps we need to focus more on mental health, I think it is one of the diseases that don’t receive the funding that it should. She must be awful lonely to treat people like that, she probably doesn’t have any family or close friends that will still talk to her. Don’t be afraid, she was just intimidated by you somehow. It is so very sad. I’m sorry that you got swept up in all of her rantings. Maybe getting in contact with a good mental health facility, and get some business cards to hand out when you run into people that have mental health issues might help them and in a roundabout way you, your daughters, and the rest of us?

The best thing we can do is stand strong as one race. The human race. Then we join together in support and love-not hatred. Brené Brown speaks eloquently about this in Braving the Wilderness. I say again, we are one race. We are human and need to recognize each other as humans.

  360. I am so sorry that you were subjected to this kind of treatment. No one deserves to be talked to or treated as you and your children’s have been. I am sorry that the place (Edmonton) that you escaped to turned out to be not as safe a haven as you had hoped, I am sorry so many people forget what dignity and common sense are. I am sorry that more people don’t stand for right in the face of wrong! I am sorry to say I am from Edmonton originally and that it has changed so much from when I lived there as a girl. And I am just plain sorry, and I apologize for the stupidity of the human race.
    Hold your head up, you are doing exactly the right thing by your children, they should be proud of you and the strength you are showing the world in the face of such hatred!

  364. I’m so sorry you and your beautiful babies had to endure such hate and ignorance, this women needs to be identified and charged if possible! No person deserves this and NO ONE FOR ANY REASON should EVER yell and swear at a child no matter the reason, kids make noise, kids get upset and cry, if your in a public setting that is 100% FAMILY FRIENDLY be prepared to hear screaming kids!

    [0]
  365. Holy sheeett…that makes me so mad … Honest to God ..she should be charged with child abuse .. spewing hate ..
    Right in public …she should be locked up…or investigated at the least..
    You handled it very well …better then i would have .. She wouldn’t have been able to walk out of that bathroom if i were there…
    I pray the good lord teaches her a lesson real fast. ..

    As a mother of small children, I can’t even imagine what an awful experience it was! People can be mean and cruel, and this woman had no right to say what she did. I hope she gets charged because what she did is unacceptable on so many levels. Sending love to you and your beautiful children!!!

  369. Deb Orchard Deb Orchard says:

    Yes this person was deplorable. I can’t believe anyone could behave in this many. Give your kids a hug and let them know that was one sick women And the way she behaved had nothing to do with them it just showed her ignorance

  370. Absolutely disgusted that people can treat others so badly. No excuse! I always wonder how a person can summon up that much hate in their cold dead hearts to act out like that without provocation!

    [0]
  371. This is heartbreaking ! I am truly shocked that nobody stepped in to help you and your kids. This hate had to stop. Hope she is charged. Don’t think everyone is like this please. I could cry for your children.

    [0]
  372. Not all people are the same, you dear Lady and your kids did nothing wrong. That women obviously has problems. You should press charges. She’s nothing but a bully and bully’s need to be stopped no matter what race, creed or colour.
    I hope you and your children will be okay and please know that we aren’t the same as her.

  377. Its a shame that people in this world have the capacity to treat others in this manner. But you must realize that there will always be people like this. you must also ask yourself what kind of horrible childhood this woman had that would create an adult with so much anger in her heart. At one time she too could have been a young child with a father or mother who did nothing but yell at her and insult her. people are not born ugly inside, it develops over time. Im not excusing what she did at all but we are all human and we all have our darker moments in life and some have more darkness than others. When things like this happen its important to be able to see the beauty in yourself no matter what a person filled with hate says to you! you and your daughter are beautiful! this woman was someone with pain that they most likely are not able to deal with and they take it out on those around them. teach your daughters to be strong in the face of hate or aggression! stand up for everything you are! Stand up for everything you believe in! you are the core of this country! You are part of the foundation of this country! You are the original culture of this country…..My wife is Portuguese and she always says that Canada has no culture….that its every one else’s culture….she says the true culture of Canada is the native culture….we need to embrace that!

  378. It is heart breaking to read this! I can not imagine how awful and scared these kids must have felt. This poor mom was trying to enjoy some time with her kids as a family. This lady she be posted on the new and have to lose her job over this. These kinds of people should not be allowed to take part in our communities and should be locked away. I wish this family all the best and hope they will be able to heal from such trauma. I know how scary these experiences are and how challenging they are to get over!

    I’m very sorry that you had to endure that woman’s wrath, especially your precious babies.

  380. I’ve been dealing with heavy racism, physical threats and attempted vehicular assault by a butcher (Delux meats and his tenants in the building he owns next door) across the street from me in Medicine Hat. I have some incidents recorded on video and audio and the police have shown up several times and they have done absolutely nothing. Even screaming at my children and leaving a racist sign on my fence. Even have video of them yelling something to my son while he walked out of the house. And the police still do nothing. The anguish and pain this has put on me has helped to destroy my household and I suffer severely now from the mental anguish it initially inflicted as well as the aftermath of the tension it build in my home. But hey, I’m sure I’m in the wrong for being a minority in Medicine Hat.

    [0]
  381. The fact that you remained calm and did NOT react in hostility (even though I know I would want to) is couragous. I admire your courage in how you dealt with this manner in a way that brought more love than hate. People who carry such hate within them are the ones who live in misery. Shame. Separation. I’m hurt for you and your babies. But you handled this well. Good on you for that mumma. #nativepride

    You are beautiful and so are your babies. Sometime we can’t get the amswers to all our questions… But you know your own truth and u are a strong woman with a beautiful culture and background. Tell yourself these things. Remind yourself of all the positives and beautiful momemts and pour your energy into that. People are very negative and misled in todays society and world. This was not at all right or acceptable and I am ashamed of that person to even attempt that behavior on another human being. Stand strong, cleanse, and move forward. Xoxo

    It’s sad to know that there were potentially 8 others in the washroom and it sounds like she had to stand alone. Smarten up people and help eachother out. Don’t stand around and watch this kind of nonsense happen. To ANYBODY of ANY color, race, religion, gender…

  389. I am so sorry that you and your children experienced such racism. The world needs love and tolerance not hatred. So many people suffer because of it and that must be one very unhappy lady to treat others with contempt. From the comments that I have read, you are very supported and loved. May this memory fade for you and your children. Hugs to you all.

    ..a picture is worth a thousand words…too bad we can’t see her and for her to know she’s been seen

  391. I know it will be hard but her rage has nothing to do with you. You are the victim and did nothing to deserve this. She must have a very miserable life. I hope she is held accountable! Have hope that she does not represent the majority. Much love! And the only WHY is that she is a crazy bitch, so dont blame yourself you handled the situation well, sometimes the strongest thing to do is step back!

    Wow!!!! I don’t even have words to explain the disgust I feel! Who yells at a baby of any race!!!! I hope you charge her!!!! Totally unacceptable! I apologize on behalf of the human race! No body should ever treat or speak to another human that way.

  393. Wow… this is so horrible. I am so sorry you had to go through this. Every time I think this world can’t get any worse, or that there isn’t enough hate in the world… something like this happens. #weneedtolovenothate❤️

    Good for you for standing up and speaking up. Don’t allow anyone to make you a victim. You showed your beautiful angels strength and wisdom. You responded correctly and that lesson will carry on with them for the rest of their lives. You are beautiful in every molecule. Don’t for one second allow that person’s bad day or garbage to have power over you. Sending you and your kidlets strength and love

  395. Karin Hunt Karin Hunt says:

    How absolutely traumatic! Your first duty was to protect your children, which you did admirably. Please do have her charged so that proper action could be taken to stop her from doing this to anyone else. Your daughters have a wise and protective mother. They will do well. Please reach out to the Aboriginal services in Edmonton for post trauma counselling for you and the girls so that you can put this incident behind you. The dysfunction demonstrated by this woman shows deep mental incapacities. She needs to be incarcerated and sent to a mental institution for assessment and treament. That level of rage could result in serious harm to someone else in the future. Sending you love and prayers my girl.

    As a mama your utmost priority is the safety and well being of your small children. This is SO WRONG and I am so sorry you and your kids experienced such ugly hate. I find it hard to comprehend someone could be so horrible but I know it’s reality. You are right- they never deserved to be treated like that! And neither did you. I am praying for your heart and healing for you and your kids. I hope and believe for good to come out of this awful thing- that it will teach people how ugly racism is, how horrific hate is, and how to care for and love one another. Your story encourages me to speak up and fight for discriminated against peoples. May she face justice for the pain she caused, and may your family move forward in healing and peace.

  400. I’m so sorry you met the bitch. It seems there’s always one wasted old cow somewhere. She probably would have told any child the same. You won’t face this racism from most of us.

    [0]
  401. Maybe how we treat people who don’t look like European Invaders/settlers is why we get attacked at football games and while walking downtown. Sadly those who get attacked aren’t likely racist but pay the price for ignorant people like the white trash that screams at a baby and talks about other races this way.

    [0]
  402. This is so sad–nobody deserves that kind of abuse. I am glad you left your abusive partner, and i am glad you are pursuing justice against that nasty excuse for a human being. You are an excellent role model for your children,and for other abused women. Best wishes <3

  403. Jaimie says:

    First off, thank you for not categorizing everyone into the same flock. So many times I read “you people” or so forth. Thank you!!!
    My heart hurts for your children and yourself, I couldn’t imagine how on earth someone filled with so much hatred lives day to day and felt entitled to speak this way to anyone never mind children. Especially being a mother herself.
    What a valuable lesson to your children and you’ve clearly done a wonderful job modelling for them when their response is to pray for the lady… beautiful…
    I pray your children will never have to endure this hatred and racism again. Xo
    I feel she should be charged with asssaulting a child

  404. Amy says:

    Sounds like she is mentally unstable. It didn’t matter what you did, or your color she would have found some reason to go nuts on you like the hindu guy and other workers there she went off on. She is likely racist but the root cause of her issues are due to mental issues, don’t take it too personally, fight this as much as you can, lay charges etc. Make sure your kids are aware of these types of people existing and that when mental illness is at play, not much you can do to make her a better person aside from staying away from them so they don’t bring toxicity your life, mind and heart.

  405. Not all people are as ignorant as that woman!!!! I am so sorry that this happened to you and your children!!!!! Please know there is still good in the world!!!!!

  406. Omg i cant believe it you stand proud girl it is her with the problem obviously she is really down on herself with a very low self asteem. Also you need to lay charges against her she had no right to abuse your babies like that and don’t cry anymore your beautiful girl and so are your girls just remember stand tall and be proud and don’t let this poor excuse of a human get away with this she has probably done it to a lot of people.

    [0]
  407. I’m so sorry this happened to you. You showed more restraint than most people would. I hope you know that you have the support and understanding of Edmontonians and other Canadians. I’m very sad that other bystanders didn’t step in. I hope many people read your story and learn they can be the change. Racism doesn’t end by simply sticking up for someone who is being bullied, it starts by telling people we know that their sarcastic, demeaning, and racist jokes are not acceptable. Any time we laugh or stay silent we embolden people like this woman. Stay strong! You did the right thing with your restraint and telling others.

    I’m so sorry this happened to you, and to your little ones. I can’t imagine your pain, or the complex feelings you must be experiencing right now.

I hope that you will find healing, and that your children will also heal and know that they are important, and that they are loved.

    Stupidity and hae comes in every colour and gender ( as proven above).
