On The Woman Who Called Reporter Emmy Victor A Nigger, And Victor’s Subtle “Nigga Moment”

KCCI News screenshot

 

On the list of “Things I’d Never, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever, Ever Thought I’d Do But Found Myself Actually Doing,” writing a piece that’s (somewhat) sympathetic of a White woman who…

1) attacked a Black woman who was just doing her job

…and…

2) hurled racial slurs at said Black woman

…is near the top, right above “willingly eating a beet” (I put one in a smoothie last week), and “willingly dapping a Kappa.”

But after watching the viral news clip of an Iowa woman calling KCCI reporter Emmy Victor a nigger, and reading some of the reactions to it, I’m doing exactly that.

And I’m doing it despite the fact that there is exactly zero doubt in my mind that this was not the first time this woman said nigger. Shit, that probably wasn’t even her first time saying nigger that day. By the easy and vicious way that word escaped her lips, I can totally picture her humming “Alabama Nigger” while brushing her biased teeth or crocheting a bigoted shawl.

Still, I imagine that if I just witnessed my kid get killed by the police (which she did), I’d be deeply and firmly ensconced in “fuck everybody and everything” mode. And its even less difficult to imagine the sight of a news camera crew reporting on my kid’s death a few yards away from where he was killed and a few hours away from when he was killed triggering something nasty within me. This, of course, doesn’t excuse her attack. Nor does it excuse or explain why her default wounded reaction was a racist one. But I just can’t conjure much outrage about this.

If anything, my biggest takeaway wasn’t the woman’s rant but a reminder of how dangerous it can be to be a live news reporter. (Something I admittedly take for granted.) Their jobs occasionally demand them to be where violent crimes just took place. Sometimes at night. Sometimes when the suspects still haven’t been caught. Sometimes when the community will be hostile. And it’s not like they travel with some type of security firm or secret service detail. Sometimes, when they’re on assignment, the police either haven’t arrived yet or arrived but already left and it’s just the reporter and the cameraman by themselves. Emmy Victor (and photojourno Zachary Hayes) were literally just doing their jobs; jobs that placed them in the bullseye of a recently devastated and (probably) racist woman.

All that said, I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that Emmy Victor totally had a Draymond Green moment. At the 0:26 mark in the video, the remarkably professional Victor breaks for a moment with “Don’t ever” — which was totally a shortened version of “Don’t ever forget that I will totally whoop your ass if you come at me like that again” — before remembering she was on camera and can’t risk losing her job and defaulting on her student loan payments.

You could almost see the thoughts going through her head:

“I really, really, really want to mush this chick in her stupid fucking face, but I have a trip to Aruba planned for next month, and I can’t get fired and have all this juicing and yoga I’m doing to stunt on the gram go for naught. And I won’t be able to use my KCCI badge to get free brunch anymore either.”

In that moment, Emmy Victor was each of us. We’re all Emmy Victor.

  • Charles Johnson

    I SAW THAT TOO. then she realized she had more to lose than the white woman. Who, unfortunately, lost the most (her son) out of the three people involved.

  • Val

    Nope. Sorry. I have zero sympathy for that hillbilly. She is the perfect example of an all lives matter spewing redneck who probably took some of her chewing tobacco money and donated it to George Zimmerman.

    I cannot feel sympathy for someone who is so clearly telling us by her default use of the N word that she doesn’t give a hoot about any of us and would feel absolutely no sympathy for a Black mother in her same situation.

    Good job to the reporter for not taking the bait. And, has that racist been charged with assault?

    • I’m with you. My sympathy tank is empty…depleted…bone dry.

      • brothaskeeper

        Sometimes I use my sympathy tank as an overflow reservoir for savory YT tears.

        • Scout Wellsrain

          What about when YT laughs at your chimp antics and ineffectivity and impotence? Take an ocean to catch all that tastiness, huh, monkeyboy?

          • brothaskeeper

            Hi, troll. Thanks for the tears. You brought up impotence, which lets me know that you care a lot about other people’s penises. Your mom doesn’t have a problem with my abilities. Tell her next time she doesn’t have to take her teeth out, okay? Thanks, troll.

            • Scout Wellsrain

              you lose- cuz u black.hahahahah

            • Mochasister

              I blocked that fool and kept it moving. I always wonder why they waste precious time bothering with people who are “beneath” them. Seems like they would have better things to do than to trade insults with us lowly Nigras. Like attend klan rallies. Or practice the Heil Trump salute. Maybe commiserate with people of like mind on Stormfront. Funny how we stay on their minds.

              YOU LOSE. Also like apes. Always losing.

              I suppose when I agree that apes have no agency, you would say “BOOSHIT. MY MAMMY WAS.AN APEFIRMATIVE ACSHUN HIRE DOWN AT DE D.M.V. N SHEEIT. WE GOTS.AGENCY” HAHAHAHAHA Too stupid to live, I swear.

          • Vanity in Peril

            La la la…you do realize the only reason you haven’t been blocked by everyone is because ur such a lightweight? Right, Biff?

        • Scout Wellsrain

          Yeah. Our sympathy tank is dry. No more apefirmative action, no more gibs, no more pretending blacks aren’t the most racist, whiny, spoiled and entitled little children. No more pretending your criminality and inability to see cause and effect or think in the abstract is anything other than genetic, as study after study is proving. You also can’t see this deficiency- one that is, and has been, blatantly obvious to all whites of greater intelligence than you (which is about 89% of us, on average)- because you actually lack the cognitive ability/consciousness to understand it. It is like trying to explain four-dimensional space or higher geometric function to someone with Downs Syndrome, or red to a person unable to distinguish it. You can’t even grasp the concepts (where are the black Fields Medal winners?)… but, unlike the Downs kid, you DO grasp that we intuitively understand (and are capable of creating and maintaining) things you can’t/don’t. This makes you perpetually lash out in envy and rage. You all hate whitey, but you can’t survive without us, and your ability to survive in a civilized society is directly proportionate to the amount of white blood you have. And for most of you posting here, that’s plenty- seemingly, at least 25 percent euro blood, minimum. And you know the above is true. And it eats at you horribly.

          I would LOVE to see you function without white civilization and white-built institutions. You can’t. Go on, I dare you.

          The pendulum is swinging back. Whitey is waking up. History is cyclical, and guilt-ridden wealthy white liberals’ diseased altruism is disappearing as the white social class with the luxury to engage in such virtue signalling suicide dwindles and disappears… something you stupidly openly celebrate. It’s going to be endlessly amusing to see “blacks” (mulattos, you mean, like Obama) scramble to save themselves as their own darker underclass cannibalizes them (figuratively, yes, but likely literally. It’s in your nature). You wanted whitey gone? OK. But remember his civilization ALWAYS goes with him.

          We can’t live together. And we FO SHO NIKKA don’t want to live with you. Neither AT ALL do our closer relatives, the Mestizos (euro white and amerind mixes. Amerinds are Asians, whites closest cousins). No mas animales negros, solamente la raza y gueros. (Los Angeles, my hometown, is 20 percent less nigfuxated now than in 1990, while the gringo y mestizo populations have increased. Muchas gracias to our sureno hermanos por la reconquista, de-monkey-fying huge swaths of La.Ciudad de la Reina de Los Angeles). Don’t try pretending there is some sort of brown/black alliance. Only in your campus SJW dreams. Check out the prisons for the way things shake out racially in the real world (AB and Eme and Sureno/NLR alliances) Our little brown hermanos hate you more than we do, and you know it. The honest on both sides are now realizing what blacks really are… an evolutionary holdover/throwback with the impulse control of.your closest relatives, the australopithecene-like chimps. You look like them even- something you also know to be true. And don’t bother eeping and ooking with the silly fake black history “all advancement, civilization, etc., came out of africa” crap. It is nonsense (subsaharan blacks didn’t even have the wheel til euros showed up), and the fact that blacks laughably parrot this “we wuz gyptians/romans/jews/spaceniggas” crap just underlines the fact that most of you are incapable of understanding scientific method or dialectics. The few intellectuals that appear in the mulatto population admit and decry this. NO MORE MONKEY GIBS. NO MORE WEAK WHITEY, GENUFLECTING FOR HIS SINS. THE “JIG” IS UP.

      Good of you to express this have a full comment; mine stopped at “Nope” but I have no doubt the people, including Daymone know what I meant. Zero sympathy for trash racist’s anger that *gasp* cops would dare shoot her son for threatening others with a gun and refusing to put it down. Flinging slurs at BW doing her job and who wasn’t even part of those who wiped out her violent, crazy son? SMDH

              Did the same after reporting; didn’t even bother interacting with it. Panama and Damon really need to set comments to automatically be closed after a set period of time and moderate all newbies. Such trolling dedication these vermin have, crawling a site for days because they “hate” the community, LOL.

    • Naw. . Gawd is still working on me… she would’ve felt these hands.

    • KNeale

      Agreed. I love Damon but it wasn’t mentioned what that felt like for Victor. I know we’ve all been there. And yeah I’m sure its dangerous to be a live news reporter. And sure hillbilly’s son just died. But in place of this article would have been a great time to write an article about how being attacked by racist is a traumatizing experience for black people and you can never escape it even if you are at work and how it sucks that black people not reacting is congratulated and encouraged. I’m sure this lady felt humiliated and even more humiliated and confused that the cameraman (and possibly producers) at the location didn’t do anything when the woman pursued her and put her hands on her. All black people know how it feels to be in that moment. But then when its over nobody takes a second to feel sorry for us, check in on us, comfort us, acknowledge us. So it would have been nice for that to have been acknowledged here.

          No, you just chimp out because WE LET YOU. But we’re vetting bored with your antics. Bring it. Boons are 12.5% of the US population. Black are 6%. Those of fighting age are 2 percent, and a third of those are locked up through their own stupidity and inability to compete with whitey, despite our having graciously MORE THAN LEVELED the playing field. So, you’re going to put your tiny idiot ape population up against a FINALLY RACIALLY NATIONALIST AND AWARE bunch of white FARM BOYS who grew up shooting long guns… (not 200 dollar .25s held sideways) who make up, as whites of fighting age- A NUMBER FAR GREATER THAN THE ENTIRE NUMBER OF BLACKS IN NORTH AMERICA. YEAH. BRING IT. Whites are ALL WEAK SISSIES, remember- as long as you are suckerpunching out old men and tiny women for WURRRSTARRRR, NEEGUH! It takes ten of you to even think about trying a real white man, and you chimps know it.

          Never mind that one pissed off berserker white man is worth ten mooncrickets. Ask the Arabs raided by my viking ancestors. Or the Turks who specified using blonde northern europeans as their shock troops (janissaries- who eventually took over the caliphate from within). I could give many more examples. Your apecestors knew this. You’re well on your way to a shocking reminder.

      Ain’t that the truth. If it was a black dude killed by police she the type that already blamed the kid and his parents and would. not care. Now it’s her child who is probably a common criminal but would not have had his mugshot used as his picture and not have his criminal background released to the public to criminalize him for being killed by police like they do people of color

    • Mochasister

      What about all the times white reporters have been insensitive to our community’s pain and suffering? How many times have I seen Black mothers weeping with grief over the death of a loved one only to have an intrepid white reporter shove a microphone in her face? Somehow we manage not to put our hands on them. I say charge her with assault the same way a Black woman would be. But we all know they won’t because you know white privilege. Even for ugly, no teeth having, non standard English speaking hillbillies.

      Too bad Emmy wasn’t a man. Damon would’ve lost his mind.

  • Lol, you see that neighborhood tho? Those news stations should hand black folks racial-insurance when they’re entering such war zones. This is like sending Ben Shapiro into LA right in the middle of the LA Riots and expecting him to come out unscathed.

    That being said, where’s All Lives Matter? Cops are killing rednecks’ kids? Where’s the marches? The protests? The gofundme campaigns? That’s right, only black people form groups to protect their rights.

      Yeah, I feel like that is 100% a neighborhood that you don’t send your black reporters to. It makes me wonder if the station managers were lowkey hoping something would pop off.

      • Val

        I disagree, Glo. Why should a Black reporter be limited by racists? Black reporters should be able to go wherever they need to go to report the news and do their jobs.

        • Cheech

          But that doesn’t mean the station managers weren’t hoping (low key or otherwise) that something would pop off.

          • Aly

            It’s not that deep. At a small station like that, she was probably the only reporter available at the time of the shooting. It was breaking news.

            • Cheech

              Could be, I have no idea. I’m thinking of a parallel situation (ok, I’M remembering an episode of sports night) where editors sent a young female reporter into an NFL locker room where she got harassed/abused by a player, and wondered whether they’d done it in part knowing they’d get coverage if anything happened. Parallel arguments. Different, but parallel.

              • Lol, I remember that, her name was Inez Sainz. It didn’t go down like that, and you can tell at the aftermath. That being said, like I always say, the media reflects society, ppl might be uncomfortable about what they see in the mirror, but the media knows what it’s doing, because it’s revenue is dependent on it.

                • Cheech

                  I remember Inez now. I don’t remember her details. The ones I described were actually from the Sports Night episode (fictional TV show). But the idea seemed realistic enough — where is the line between sending a reporter to do the job because she’s entitled to do it, and sending her knowing she might become part of a bigger story?

                  • Well, this is why the Inez story is interesting…very much so.

                    Inez worked for a Mexican TV company. She was a former Miss Mexico or something like that and was known for posing in magazines. So when she got all that attention at the press conference, she was perfectly fine with the athletes flirting with her, and she admitted to it. It was the American journalists who were disgusted and who were talking behind her back, and also it was the American journalists who created the story around her being harassed. She admitted after the whole thing that she was happy about it, because it had helped her to become the most popular journalist in Mexico, even though the owner of the Jets apologized to her anyways.

                    Basically, Inez knew the game and how to play it; furthermore she’s not in America, where puritanism, despite how people want to look at it, plays a major role in how we expect American men and women to interact with each other professionally, and is in fact the root of most of our harassment laws. However, companies love those kind of moments because it makes uninteresting moments in sports interesting and increases ratings, which increases the chance of well, a promotion. And sometimes they’re willing to risk the potential lawsuit just in case.

    First Emmy Victor is gorgeous and with that being said she is a better woman than me. Losing your son or not you ain’t about to be in my face like that without some repercussions. Now I ain’t losing my job over some foolish racist stuff (and I have encountered some of that in the corporate world) BUT that white woman would have to think twice from now on about stepping in someone’s face like that on camera. And I’m sure it’s not the first time she has hurled such insults to a black or brown person. It’s horrible to lose a child but I have no sympathy for her reaction.

    Not that I ever want to be in a situation such as this. BUT if I were, I pray, hope, meditate that it falls on a “good day.” The kind of good day where you wake up and the whole world could get it if they try you. When a basket of fluffy kittens will cussed out if they meow the wrong way. And that I not be so shocked that I’m stunned into silence but my words of fury and contempt flow up and out of me like the Nile. Amen?

    Woo! Homegirl showed restraint!

    She definitely had a Draymond moment. She was *this* close to slapping that ol’ lady back to her ancestors.

    It’s unfortunate that her son is dead, but too many white folks go straight to the default “n*gger” when they’re upset about something, and I’m sorry, bump that. Dead son or not, you’ll still get dealt with.

    This made me think about that reporter & camera man that got killed by their co-worker. In this day and age, safety should definitely be priority one for these news folks.

      The thing thats crazy about some of these on the street reports is that they really don’t need to be there most of the time. Can’t they be live from inside the van?

      • Or from the newsroom.

        I get up around five in the morning and the local news seldom fails to have someone out in the field at that time of morning for pointless live shots.

          “What you see here behind me is a puddle left from last night’s storm. You can still see a bit of random detritus…I think I spot a candy wrapper and a child’s doll. Greg, can we get a shot of the doll?”

        I mean…I would be…lol

        Right! Why do you feel the need to stand next to the beltway, to tell me about the AM traffic jam in the background……that’s also being transmitted by the traffic cams……and the cameraman in the helicopter? You coulda said all that from the studio. I believe you.

    This is why I am happy I don’t work a job that deals directly with the public/customers. The moment someone hurls a racial slur my way I will mostly likely lay hands on them and I’m not talking about praying for em either.

      I would like to think I would handle that situation like the reporter did but honestly I can not say for sure I would. You see the way my couth and professionalism is set up, I may have verbally popped off with her. And she got up in her face, Ion know if I could resist the temptation of giving her an eye jammy.

        Eye jammy!
