Two racist incidents - one recent and one from 2017 - were caught on camera in New City, and the victims are sharing the videos to shine a spotlight on racism in the Hudson Valley.
One of the racist rants has nearly 100,000 views on Twitter. It happened at the New City post office. An exchange unfolded Tuesday as a man allegedly accused the customer recording the incident of cutting in line.
After that video went viral, other victims came forward with experiences of their own - including a road rage incident that happened in New City in 2017.
The Latino woman behind the camera says she kept it to herself until she saw what happened at the post office.
Rockland NAACP Regional Director Wilbur Aldridge says the videos are a snapshot of racial tension that can no longer be ignored.
"It's not just a police issue. It's a human issue that we have to sit down and talk about," says Wilbur Aldrige, of Rockland NAACP.
