 well that was a train wreck to say the least...I'm not surprised at all but I can't let the actions of some trashy people represent who I am as a person...is this video stereotypical? of course it is but really, anyone who feeds into this mess and prejudges black women as a whole on the actions of some very loud and pathetic women are people I don't want to associate with at all...

my first reaction was to tell OP she she no more be embarrassed by the woman in the video than I am (I'm white). But I remembered how horrified I was when watching a documentary about Irish Travelers, so I do get it. And I homeschool, and even though we don't do a lot of things people stereotype homeschoolers as doing, I still cringe when someone is a walking cliche of that, knowing that that's the image some people have in their minds that my kids will have to disprove and overcome.

It makes me sad.  It doesn't matter if I am black or white though.  Why are you embarrassed just because it's another black women?  What if it was a white women.  Then no big deal?  Still horrifying.  Still sad.

This chick is disgusting -- not because she is black - but because she is trash!!!

Both them bitches deserved to get it. The worst part for me was how the children behaved. Of course if your mom is a wild beast your going to be a little hellion.

I applaud the security guard & I'm glad he tased her right in front of the kids - maybe your mama didnt teach you but you will learn their are consequences for your actions.

Bravo Mr. Security man - BRAVO!!!

SN--- boy she hit the ground hard lol

I understand.  But I wouldn't expect you to understand on this side.  Most black people have got a bad rap.  Its tiresome to have to hear the stereotype about our people, constantly.  I would be embarrassed if this was any other race too. But for them to be apart of my race, and we are already stereotyped to be this way, its disheartening

Eh I'm white and this video doesn't change my opinion of African Americans. She's just a bad egg. Race has nothing to do with it. When a white person goes nutso I don't get disappointed in our race. There's good and bad people in every color.

Thats what pisses me off, then people think we are all the same. Just a mess! I love being an african american woman then I see crap like this that makes me shake my head in disappointment. No words can describe how I feel about crap like this

Unfortunately, that woman acts like 90% of the black women I've come across. No wonder blacks have a hard time getting pass stereotypes. Just about every one I've met has been loud and mouthy like that and quick to want to fight.

Sadly not all people are like you. It's sad to say but we do get judged or maybe we notice more when people judge us than when they don't .

Correct, bad comes in all shapes sizes and colors. 

I can't pin point why this bothers me as an african american female but it does. Maybe I shouldn't get disappointed, but I do. Something else for me to work on. lol
