Unfortunately, while the recent protests in the United States have sparked nationwide calls for racial equality, they haven’t stopped racist incidents like this one from occurring on a daily basis. This video, taken at Lucia Restaurant & Bar in Carmel Valley, CA, on July 4, shows a man yelling profanities at a family.
The man, Michael Lofthouse, is the CEO of tech company Solid8. Lofthouse uttered several derogatory remarks directed at the family, some of which were not captured on video. According to Jordan Chan, who recorded the incident and posted it on Instagram, “We were celebrating my tita’s birthday, literally just singing happy birthday to her and taking pictures, when this white supremacist starts yelling disgusting racist remarks at us.”
