White Virginia woman fired after telling black neighbor she’s ‘not right color’

A white Virginia woman has been fired from her job after she was caught on a disturbing video yelling at her black neighbor that she is “not the right color.”

The footage shows an argument between the food bank worker and the black resident, who is standing on her front porch on Lynchburg Avenue in Colonial Heights, about 20 miles south of Richmond, the Progress-Index reported.

“You are not the right color, honey!” the white woman yells.

The other woman, who was identified by the Daily Mail as Laquetta Good, is then heard repeatedly asking her neighbor, “I’m a n—-?”

“Yes, you are!” the white woman is heard saying in response.

In a video posted on Facebook, Good writes in the caption: “Let’s talk about the Colonial Heights police officer who watched the whole video and all he said was she won’t (sic) on my property.”

Laquetta Good says she feels “like a prisoner in my own home.”

In another video, she wrote: “Let’s rewind back to the beginning when she called the police to search my house for drugs because her words were I couldn’t afford my house, I never leave the house so I had to sell drugs because I’m black and had a Porsche.

“Yes the POLICE SURE DID SEARCH MY HOUSE FOR DRUGS SMH. No drugs were found I work from home!! This has been going on for MONTHS,” she added.

Good, 30, told the Mail that the blowup was part of an ongoing dispute — and that the women’s children don’t get along.

“I feel like a prisoner in my own home,” she said. “She has called me many names before but to hear her being racist, that really shocked me.

“You should be able to feel comfortable in your own home. This is not acceptable. We still have a long way to go as a society for equality.”

In a post on the Chesterfield Food Bank’s Facebook page, CEO Kim Hill said she was “broken-hearted” over the video.

“We want to thank everyone for reaching out to us in regards to the video and story that was posted this morning regarding a confrontation between an individual and one of our employees in their neighborhood,” Hill wrote.

“We, here at the CFB, are broken-hearted to view this conduct as it goes directly against our values and beliefs. We are honored to serve everyone in need with dignity & integrity,” she wrote.

“In response to this situation, we have terminated this employee. We remain committed to creating and providing a positive, uplifting, and encouraging environment for our staff, volunteers, and clients,” Hill added.

Commenters on the original Colonial Heights Issues page where the video was posted claimed the argument was the latest in a series of disputes between the two women.

Police did not immediately respond to the Progress-Index’s request for comment.
