The incident took place on Wednesday night in a parking lot in Dallas, Texas. The woman, who has now been arrested, is seen in the video identifying herself as a Mexican-American and assaulting a group of Indian-Americans.
“I hate you Indian. All these Indians come to America because they want a better life,” Esmeralda Upton is seen saying in the video. “You Indians are everywhere,” she adds while hurling abuses at the four Indian-American women.
