A FedEx worker’s heartbreaking video detailing racism he experienced while delivering packages has gone viral after he shared the incident on Facebook Live.
Brandon Brackins was working in Lisbon, Ohio, when he had to stop the FedEx truck to grab packages out of the back. While he was unloading, he says a man drove by, called him the n-word, and spit on him.
“What the f—k is the point of all this protest sh—t if it don’t work?” he asked.
Brackins shared his experience in a six minute long video on Facebook, which consisted mostly of him being at a loss for words over the experience.
“This sh—t is horrible. I think [racism is] a lot worse than a lot of people think,” he said. “This world is so f—ked up.”
Brackins has received an outpouring of support online as well as from residents of the town where the incident happened.
One resident of Lisbon, Christine Schreffler, posted on Facebook that there’s an organized effort to fill the town with “Hate Has No Home Here” signs on people’s houses.
“We want to plaster Lisbon with these to show ALL are welcome here and to also send a message to the racist idiot who assaulted this young man,” she wrote.
FedEx has also commented on Brackins’ experience.
“We are both saddened and outraged by what our team member experienced and describes in this video,” they said in a statement. “This type of behavior has no place in society, and our first concern is for our team member. We are staying connected with him and offering our support.”
They also confirmed that a police report was filed over the incident.
