A Muslim woman who visited a California Coffee shop Saturday became the victim of a racist who launched into a scary verbal assault before being evicted for his upsetting behavior.
The woman, who isn’t named, decided to film the creepy conversation, and the man can be heard being completely obnoxious. As they stand in line at the coffee shop, he can be heard asking:
“Is this Halloween or something?”
“Why would you say that?” she asks.
The tense conversation continued, with the man rudely asking:
“Why do you think I would say that?”
“Do you know I’m Muslim?” she asks.
“Yeah, I do,” he can be heard saying.
“What’s your problem with that?” she asks.
“I don’t like it, how’s that?” he retorts.
She decided to ask him why he doesn’t like Muslim people, and he responded:
“I don’t like that because I don’t like your religion. It says to kill me and I don’t want to be killed by you. How’s that?”
“Are you scared of me?” she asked. “Have you read the Quran?”
“Yes, I’ve read it enough to know. Yes, that’s right,” he said.
Next, the woman asked the man, who continually wore an angry grimace, if he was a Christian, and he said he was. So she brought up a passage in the Bible that, she noted, advocates killing non-believers.
“I don’t want to have any kind of conversation with idiots,” he snapped.
Apparently, he must never talk to himself, in that case.
“You are committing hate speech,” the woman told him.
Seconds later, one brave customer did what anyone should do when involved in this sort of ugliness.
“Get out of here!” the customer yelled. “Get out of here, f–king racist!”
“F–k you, shut the f–k up,” the offensive fool hollered back.
That’s when a feisty barista at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf stepped in and denied the angry racist service. He asked who the manager of the store was. The woman behind the register said she was the supervisor on duty. Asked why the man was being denied service, she said simply:
“Because he is disrupting a public place and being very racist.”
And the Twitterati are understandably impressed. At least one person took Starbucks to school for its reprehensible behavior towards two black men who were arrested while they were in the middle of waiting for a business associate.
Thank you to the stranger who yelled at the racist pig and to the supervisor at Coffee Bean who did the right thing. Hey, Starbucks – you could learn from this. https://t.co/O7NiFN5hLG

Others would like this guy to be outed for the disgusting racist that he is.
"I'm a Muslim [woman]."
"I know your religion and I don't want to be killed by you."

I'm so happy two people spoke up and one was the manager who refused to serve the racist. That's heartening. Perhaps not accepting all this poor treatment as the norm is what will turn the tide.

Others expressed shock that someone could be this creepy:
The man was wrong period. If nobody has physically touched you or said anything to you, you have no right to assume, judge or harass someone because of what they wear or religion. I'm not a Bible quotist but treat others as you want to be treated. Simple as that.
